Fancy Aurora

It’s time for a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog and this week we’d like you to create….

Fancy Fold cards.

Our sponsor for this challenge is….

Aurora Wings

We were supplied with some images to use for this challenge and I chose the gorgeous Autumn Harmony and create a Z-Fold Card.

Here’s what I came up with.

I have printed the image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers. I’ve then trimmed my image and layered onto a piece of Perfect Plum cardstock. My main card is created using some Naturals Ivory cardstock, Perfect Plum layers and then a layer of Authentique Papers. I’ve then added some paper doilies under the front and inside layers and then added some gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Kort & Godt. A few pearls in the other corners and a ribbon to tie my card shut.

Here’s another photo of the card open.

Here’s a close up of the gorgeous image.

I’m now thinking a little glitter on the wings so may go back and add that yet.

I hope my card inspires you to have a go at a Fancy Fold card and join our challenge.

Onto my creation for this week….

My youngest daughter had a Birthday Party to attend on Saturday so I needed a Birthday Card for her.

This is what I came up with.

I’ve use the super cute Bella with Presents stamp by Wild Rose Studio which has been stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with my Copic Markers.

This is teamed with the Bella’s Birthday Paper Pack from Wild Rose Studio, a La La Land Crafts Die called Flag Banner and some Butterfly Punches from Martha Stewart.

Note: The funny orangey looking colour used for the layers, butterflies & ribbon is actually a really pretty pink.

When you open the card up you will see….

That I have created a Twisted Circle Easel Card.

Here’s a side view…

This centre piece of the base has been left blank so my daughter can write a message to her friend and I’ve also left the top of this piece loose so we can tuck some money in there for her gift.

I hope I have inspired you with my creation today. Don’t forget to leave a comment on our blogs as you go along as you just never know who’s Sweet Spot for this week.

Your next stop for the hop is Lydia.
