Fancy Folds

For me it is always so difficult to craft in Summer and with hubby on vacation leave, I didn't even manage to make a card last week!!! .. But not this time, as I'm on vacation leave too, so it was easier to find some time to spend in my craft room to make my DT Card for this week.

The theme for this week at

I don't do much these type of fancy fold cards and then I always tend to do the easel, but this time I decided to try something different and so I did the Gatefold card instead. I had done this type of card only once before so it felt really good doing it again, and it was quite easy too.

The image that I used is from Bugaboo stamps, colored it with my promarkers, and the papers, which I've had for a very very long time, are from Trimcraft. I just added card candy, the sentiment and twine to my card and that's it! I thought it was too full already with the lovely papers. I did try to add something more, but just couldn't!

We are this week sponsored by Dr Digi with a prize of two digis from the store.
