Scraps to Treasures Fancy Fold Card


Welcome to the Scraps to Treasure’s Blog Hop. We are independent bloggers who love to craft like crazy and show it all off, crafters from the sister group the “Krazy Crafting Crew”, and even more crafters have joined this open group to bring you many ideas on what to do with those crazy scraps that keep piling up! Our goal is to inspire you to go through your stash and create! If you would like to join this team you are welcome to share what you have too with new themes, challenges and more every month. Just contact Robin Scott or Lissa Marie on our blogs or on Facebook, if you are interested in joining our Scraps to Treasure Team too!
If you have stumbled upon this hop, and would love to start from the beginning, our host this month is Robin Lane from Create-a-latte  If you just came from Creations with Kathryn you  are well on your way through the hop. 

Fancy Fold Cards is the theme today, how fun and different then the ordinary card, this is the fancy fold I chose to make to inspire you!

Today I am bringing you a card fold I had never tried before.  It is called a SWING CARD.  I found a tutorial for it here:

This will be a birthday card for my husband's 50th!  Although he prefers black and yellow (on anything and everything) because we make our projects from scraps I didn't have enough craps in coordinating black and yellow so he will have to be happy with this card!

All my papers are from CTMH.  They are left over from a scrapbook page I had made.  The collection is called Stella.  Papers are inked in CTMH Lagoon.

You next stop on this inspiration hop is Jearise

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, enough to leave a little love through commenting. Our host is having a giveaway and a variety of blogs may be offering some blog candy as well, they all have their own wishes for you to win on their own blog, so don't forget to read the rules for each crafter has different requirements if they are offering any extra’s.

 Thank you for stopping by, I would love to hear what you think of my fancy fold card!

Ellen Jarvis said...

Happy birthday to your old geezer-of-a-husband, and many more ... birthdays that is, not husbands!! The card is so neat. I'm sure he'll love it even if it isn't in "his colors". My husband is so particular that I typically with BUY him a funny card and then he'll whine and tell me he wanted one I've MADE. MEN!

Awesome job on the swing card. Love the map paper and the letters. If you hadn't said that this was your first try at this style, I never would have known.

I'm sure the fact that you made the card for him will make your husband happy with the colors. I haven't made one of these cards from scratch - bought some in a kit one time - but I do like them. Need to get them out and use them. So many ideas and not enough time to use them all.
Great job.
thanks for sharing.
