Lots of bling

Good morning bloggers,

Today a  new challenge starts at Let's Craft and Create  #107..Lots of bling.  Now I am sure most of you wouldn't have a problem with that so I do hope you will pop over and join in this fun challenge. The Dt have made gorgeous creations for your inspiration, and you have a whole month to enter, but don't wait tooo long.

I am not sure what this fold is called, but I think of it as an upright Z-fold.

This is my card  and details of what I used. I was asked if I would give details of the card and I have put a photo and some explanation at the end.

The paper is from Eline's Buitenhuis...pretty paper bloc, and I wiped the edges of the card with Vintage photo.

The image is a from Bugaboo Stamps. It is the freebie that came with this month's newsletter and I just needed to use it.
Coloured it with Distress inkpads and cut it out with a Nellie Snellen MFD. I used a gel roller to go over all the lines of the cage, but not sure it shows up on the photo.

The heart diecuts for the closure are also Nellie Snellen dies. I added bling  all round and a peel-off sentiment.

Use a piece of cardstock 30cm x 10.5 cm and score  from the left at 7cm and 15cm.
7cm is a mountain fold and 15cm is a valley fold.
The extra piece of r\on the front is 8.5cm x 11.5cm, but it can be any shape and it needs to tuck into some sort of embellishment at the top to hold it in place.  Here is a photo of the card lying flat, so hope this helps.

Just email me if you need any further help.

Love your fold, the paper and the image. Awesome! So very blessed that you joined our Word Art Wednesday Challenge last week. We just started a new one and we would like for you to link with us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Colossians 2:6-7 which tells us, "So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Have a wonderful week...
