My Favorite Things Creative Challenge...Fun Fold...You Rock My World!


Hey Stampin' friends! Well, I am very glad to report that Hannah is back to her old self, the swelling has gone down completely and she is feeling much better!

So I made this card tonight to give as a thank you to Hannah and Kieran's favourite Summer Camp Counsellor, Jello (not her real name, he, he, he)! She just so happens to be the daughter of Kieran's Godfather too. Well, I thought she would really like this sweet MFT A La Mode cutie from the set You Are Unrepeatable. The MFT DT shared their monthly Creative Challenge for August yesterday and they made cards with FUN and FANCY FOLDS! Well, I was totally inspired by all their gorgeous cards that I thought I would try a new fold for a change! I saw this fabulous step card on Erica's blog and I thought it would be perfect!

I teamed up this sweet A La Mode Girl with my new fave BasicGrey Out of Print 6x6 paper pad. I coloured the image with my Copics and paper pieced her cute top. The sentiment is from the You Are Unrepeatable set and I stamped it on Kraft card cut with one of the ribbon dies from the MFT First Place Ribbon Stamp and Die-namics set. I also used my Solid Bracket Die-namics and made a few flowers with the Pretty Posies Die-namics Die and added some BasicGrey Buttons to the centers. I sprinkled a little bling here and there too!

This is a good view of the step card and I will definitely be making this style of card again as it was so easy and I love the way it looks.

Here is the inside of the card and I used one of the sentiments from the MFT More Essential Sentiments set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Happy Stampin'!

I too like this fold - hadn't seen it done this way but it's so effective. Love your colouring of her hair too. Great that Hannah is OK again.
