Fancy Fold – Dragonfly Dreams

Hello Stampers! I found a different fold and decided to give it a try. I love it! I CASE’d this idea from Susan Levasseur. I think I’ll be making more of these but with some alterations.

This is what you see as it comes out of the envelope (by the way it fits in a regular medium envelope). This card is a little too heavy so I might just use a black (or color) rather than the white for the card.

This is as you open it. The front piece is decorated on both sides.

This shows the back of the front and the first page. I lightly sponged  Smokey Slate around each white piece to tone down the bright white a bit. I used Dragonfly Dreams throughout along with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits and Butterfly Basics.

Opened all the way. I love this card. I can see it done with any of our flower sets too. I think the ferns from Butterfly Basics are my favorite for filling space.

Wouldn’t this look lovely on the recipients desk or on a table for display? I won’t part with this one until I make some more. 🙂 This fold is definitely a keeper for me.

As you can see, mine is similar but not exactly the same. For one thing…I didn’t have 12 x 12 black paper so I had to use the white as my card base. I have the 12 x 12 black paper now!

Hope you enjoyed this card and will give it a try. I love sharing with you and I hope you find these posts useful.

Until Monday…with another unique fold…Happy Stamping!
