SOSS #249 - F for Fold It (Fancy Fold)

Oh, how I dreaded working up a project for the latest Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #249 F for Fold It (Fancy Fold). 

Fancy fold?!  I prefer a single fold, thank you very much, but I must say I do love how this turned out.  Just don't expect me to do another any time soon.

This is a storybook type card called the 5-Minute Trifold Accordian Card which takes a 5.5 x 12 piece of paper which you fold into a booklet and then decorate as you will.

I went minimal with my card in that I used the vintage floral paper for the base and a variety of simply stamped retro images and sentiments created using my label maker.  I actually do have a stamp that says "Happy birthday beyotch" from CZ Design but I wanted the font to be retro courier. Yes, I'm just that persnickety.

So my card when folded looks like a standard card with a bit of snark but then you flip the pages and the snark hits a whole 'nother level. I love it so so much!

  • VLV Plate 1415, Curler Lady Smoking, Smooching Lady
  • Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake
I don't know where I got the 12x12 paper in my stash but it looks like Stampin' Up to me.
