Fancy Folds at Sugar Creek Hollow

Hi Everyone

I am really pleased and proud today to be a guest design team member for Sugar Creek Hollow. They want to see a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card with fancy folds. Now I have to admit with being in the run up to Christmas at school I really didn't have the time to get into something really exotic and fancy, but I have got more than one fold, so I hope that counts. I apologise for the quality of the photographs today, they were taken at night in ordinary house light, so not the best I am afraid.

I have used an arch triptych card that I bought a pack of a long time ago and it comes with the panels already cut and embossed. I covered these panels with distress stains and shabbied and inked the edges, then decorating them with vintage photos from Crafty Individuals and other bits and pieces. I really enjoyed just finding things from my stash rather than starting from scratch and creating everything I need as I go along. I really must do this more often so as to use up more of my supplies.

I hope you are having a good weekend. I should really get myself organised with finishing off Christmas present buying and getting cards written and in the post. I have been really lucky this year as my sister Chris has made alot, and I mean alot, of cards for me knowing I wouldn't have the time, so I have no excuse. Anyway enjoy your day whatever you are doing.
