Fancy Folds

Do you have any idea how many creative folds there are out there?  Are you one that makes cards folded many different ways?  If so - do I have the challenge for you!!!  Pattie's Creations Design Challenge theme is "Fancy Folds".  The only rule is that you must always use an image in your creation.

I've noticed I do a lot of confession here on this blog and today I'm doing another one.....I don't typically do any fancy folding.  Yeah, I know...I get stuck in a rut but it's where I'm comfortable.  I think that's why I like doing challenges - it's forces me outside my little box.  For my card I used Pattie's wonderful "Pocket Watch" image.  I thought about coloring it - but then I decided to just take some inks in various colors and ink up the whole image and paper.  I've seen it done but have not done it myself (at least I don't think I have in the past).  Shocking - I really liked it it turned out!  The fold I used is a double z fold.  It's a simple card (as are all my cards), but I did really like the final results.  And this card is already in the mail too.



Stop by Pattie's Creations Design Challenge and join the fun.  Plus be sure to pick up the freebie available (for a short time).

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today!  God bless you!!!

Zella,

I just love your fancy fold card and the way you colored my image! It looks so vintage too.

Zella- Perfect! This is a great card for a guy. The way you inked the image, gave it a Vintage look to it. Plus, using designer paper with watch gears on it is a great touch for this. Our Dad was a Jeweler/Watchmaker, and this brings back memories of his work bench with all the little extra gears and watch parts he accumulated. I love it!
