For You - Fancy Fold

This is a DT card for the Color My Heart Color Dare Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #281. The challenge runs for two weeks. I used the colors from the middle horizontal row - Willow, Sorbet and Canary. My neutral is white. Fancy fold or fun fold cards are among my favorite to make. The fold adds variety and uniqueness to the card. I found the tutorial HERE. I changed a few items from the original but the instructions to make the basic card are the same.
The flowers and butterfly were punched from cardstock. Candy dots were added to the flower centers. The yellow panel was adhered using foam tape for dimension. The inside was lined with white cardstock and decorated with more punched flowers.

Lesson learned: The inside decoration should be placed so as not to be visible when the card is closed.

Visit our Challenge Blog for additional information on playing along. With tic-tac-toe you have eight color combinations from which to choose. If you don't have the exact colors but have some that are close, you may substitute those colors. You could be eligible for a prize by sharing your project!

  1. I love the collection of leaves and flowers that you used on the front of your card - such a beautiful combination of colours. You should show how the card actually opens up - I went to the tutorial and it is so neat - such a great idea! Love all the little extra details. Great job :)

  2. Such a pretty card Melanie! The colors are perfect, I love the butterfly garden that you've created! :)
