The Paper Shelter ; Fancy Folds

Hi, I am back and have had a really good sleep so I should be all set for mylast night shift tonight. I have then got 11 days off, woop woop, so expect lotsof cards from me!!!!!!

So it is time for my DT card for The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and our theme this week is FANCY FOLDS.


I decided to make a side stepper card and a triangle wedge box. This is the first time I have made a side stepper and have since found tutorials on the internet but I think mine works ok hehe.


This gorgeous image is 'Cirque' and is available for The Paper Shelter.


The gorgeous papers are from the Gypsy Sisters paper pack by Kaiser Crafts. I love these pads because you also get diecut borders and elements. I have used one on the insert to write my message.


A closer look at the sweet image. I didn’t have any ink to put around the edge so I used some eyeshadow lol, it worked really well. Don’t worry, it was a new one – I bought a huge palette of mixed colours to use for my cards.


And here is my wedge box decorated with the diecut elements.


These are so easyto make and I should make a lot more I think. I just used my Ultimate Pro ….couldn’t live without it.

So there you go, a long post but I do like lots of piccies to share with you all.

I hope you can join us this week – head over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog for more inspiration by the DT and also for details of this weeks prize.

Fabulous card and box bird, love the colour scheme. What a cutie image, she is adorable. Wish I had a bit more courage with bold print papers, your card is stunning (perhaps that's why mine are measly and boring, ho hum). Hugs Sxx
