Surprise,suprise I made another new card fold inspired by ELLIE-JEANNE who kindly posted the  the instructions.

This card is great for using up scraps and folds flat for posting.The stamps are from AALL&Create and Pink Frog all coloured with Art By Marlene watercolours,I rubbed candle wax in stripes on the flower to resist the water colour,also stamped the snail onto kraft card and paper pieced then added a swipe of darker paint,B.paper is from Craft&You, circle die-cut is from Creative Dies.

This is so beautiful. The "wood" effect paper lends itself to the fold so well as it looks like a crate/box. Fabulous design.

Fantastic fun fold and you've done it so well. Thank you for sharing your fancy fold creation in Creative Creases Challenge.

Sandra Wright. said...

Fabulous card Carol, loving all the insects. I was never a good cardmaker, so I'm quite envious of people that do make such fab cards like yours.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog, recently you asked me what stamps I used for my postcard.
I have no other way to contact you as your email link on your blogger profile didn't work, so I hope you get to read this.
The fabric stamp ( mesh ) and the script stamp are from a set by Oxford Impressions called The Dressmaker.
The image of the lady dressmaking is a stamp by B Line Designs called The Design Process ( ZTM307F )
I must add that these stamps are years old, so not 100% sure they are still available now. xxx
