Crazies go Crazy for Folds


Frances is out hostess for the Crazy4Challenges this month.  For this first week, she has challenged us to make cards using folds that are different from the normal.  I went with a gatefold card.
I have shown you a picture of the card when it is fully open to give you an idea of how a gatefold works.  The image I used is by Dragonflydreams.  I forgot to write down the company of the sentiment inside.  The 'Happy  Winter' is from a retired SU set.  I am really trying to occasionally make cards for my holiday stash, and that's the reason for the winter card.  Personally, I am ready for SPRING!!!!

Now....please take the time to visit the Crazies Blog.  You are sure to be amazed, inspired, and motivated to try some new folds on your own.  If so, please share them with us by following the details on the blog.

This really turned out great. I haven't made a folded card in forever. Your embossing is beautiful. Great job.
