Fabulous Folds

Hello friends!  Hope you are enjoying your day!  I've been having fun playing with some fabulous folds from the new 3D and Fun Folds CD produced by Technique Junkie Newsletter.  TJN joined up with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps for a blog hop yesterday. Here are my two projects I created for the HOP! The first one is a "Pleated Front Card."



I began with a craft card base and stamped the snowflakes and swirls from the "Snowflake Flourish" clear stamp set with Fresh Snow ink.  The card front was then scored and pleated.  Each edge was sponged with Fresh Snow ink and pierced.  The "Winter Friends" digi was sized to fit the front of the card and colored with copic markers.  Polar White Flower Soft, Diamond Stickles, a snowflake die, and several small gems add sparkle and texture to finish the card.



Here is what the inside of the card looks like.  This was a unique and fun fold to work with and is one of the techniques included in the new 3D and Fun Folds CD!



For my next project I used the "Goodie Box Tutorial."




This is what the front of the box looks like.  A border punch was used for the edges.  The die cut candle image is from the beautiful "Christmas Light" clear stamp set and was colored with copic markers.  Graphic 45 DP was used to decorate the front panel.  Some Glossy Accents was used on the berries and the candle drips.



Here is another view of the "Goodie Box" so you can see the dimensions of the box better.  


I decided to fill my "Goodie Box" with little tea light candles since it fit the theme of my card.  When you open the box...





you will see a little pocket with a message tag on the left and a package of tea light candles on the right.  The wonderful thing about this fun fold is that it can be adapted to fit any occasion and makes such a lovely gift!


Hope you've enjoyed these projects!  Thanks for stopping by...have a fabulous weekend!
