Truly Scrumptious challenge #8

This fortnight's challenge at Truly Scrumptious is a little bit different; we'd like you to make a card that has more than one fold. Because there are so many different options for this challenge we don't have a sketch or a theme for you this time. There are lots of tutorials available on the web - Splitcoast Stampers is a great resource - or visit any of our DT's blogs where you will find the instructions on how they created their cards for this challenge.

This week the fabulous Christine Dark, Sketching Stamper, returns as our sponsor. Christine is a very talented artist and has designed her own range of fabulous digital images - just pop across to her blog and take a look. The lucky winner of this challenge will be able to choose six images as their prize.

And there is a second prize up for grabs this week. We are looking for our first Guest Designer to join us for four challenges! The winner of this prize will also be picked using Random.Org. Please make sure you add the letter GD to the end of your post if you want to be entered into the draw for the Guest Designer spot.

The DT have made some fabulous cards this week, do visit their blogs if you want to know how they made their cards.

*****************************

I mad a card like this for my matey Tara's birthday in March. I enjoyed doing it so much as soon as I saw the brief for this challenge I knew what I was going to do.
The instructions for cutting this card are on the Stamparctic blog where they have the most amazing tutorials.

This is the card closed
With the first half flap open
With the first flap open standing
Fully open (the second flap at the bottom is stuckdown to take tags of whatever you please)
The back of the card.
You can make the card to whatever size you wish - I used a piece of 12"x12" cardstock, cut it down slightly so that the finished card is 5 1/2" square and fits a regular size envelope.

Materials
BCX - Bazzill : BP - Shabby Princess download 'Signature Collection' : Images - WOJ & Sugar Nellie : Medium - Ranger distress re-inkers : Various flourish and corner stamps : Irish Blessing from the Quote Garden : Rest from stash
