W-Fold Card

 Morning -this card was a request from Grandaughters to give to their Bonus Mum on her birthday-now they are back at school and Hollie doesn't have  much time here to craft.I made a W-fold card using a tutorial from

 Beccys Place.

She loves Giraffes and Elephants so used Giraffe images from ADFD and Toadstool Printables-the Elephant was a craft mag freebie but I stamped it out-then scanned it so I could resize it oooh get me lol that's as technical as I get!

Dies from TL,Crafters Companion and Creative Dies, all images were coloured with promarkers and P.paper from K&C from yonks ago but steadily getting through it.


Now the front they wanted plain so that she wouldn't expect the inside bless them.No sentiment as they want to write something personal on the back from them.

Found an oddment of P.paper from goodness knows where that fitted the front and I had a die cut  stencilled piece in oddment box also found a little leftover flower and added a card candy to the centre.

Oh my gosh, what a fun card for someone who loves elephants and giraffes! I love that you found your elements from your stash too - this is just the most perfect card for the occasion, and that cute candy dot in the center of the flower looks great!

*Vicki* said...

Really fun design here Carol! Love the images and your front design looks so inviting!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, she won't suspect a thing from looking at the outside! I've always loved that ADFD giraffe. You got very technical with the elephant! I've never thought of resizing a stamped image. Your card is a treasure!

HilaryJane said...

Not much time to craft and you produce this, that includes fancy folds and resizing stamps. I am very impressed, lovely colouring too and great giraffe images. It would probably take me a week to create this, I am so slow xx

Chrissy said...

Fabulous card Carol, I love the fold and must check it out, I love elephants too and the stencil pattern is lovely with the flower in the center..


Pia S said...

I think that scanning trick was really clever, the size of the elephants now fit in with the giraffes. Beautiful card!
