Daring Cardmakers Card with Folds

Now I have scanned and shown the card I will cover up the ribbon ends on the front flap by covering the back of the flap with a piece of the pink paper.
Thank you for looking
Sheila Todays card is one I have made for the Daring Cardmakers Weekly Challenge.
This weeks challenge was to make a card with folds in it or on it.
For mine I have chosen to make a fold in the card itself.
I scored two lines approximately 1" apart using the Scor-It scoring board.
The 1" section was folded back to the inside of the card and the larger flap was folded back to the front.
To decorate the card I have used a lace rubber stamp from the the TandaStamps new background sheet. I have deliberately not pressed too hard on the stamp as I wanted the lace to look old and tatty.
On the front flap I have added another piece of vintage ribbon and the final decoration is a Paper Artsy stamped image mounted onto gold card.
The rest of the inside of the card was then covered with Making Memories paper.
Underneath the fold of the card (on the larger front piece) I have added some original ephemera from a book and a newspaper. The ribbon and lace are also real vintage pieces.


  1. Wow, I love what you have done with this challenge, so pretty, with the lace, and I love the folds, gorgeous.

  2. Beautiful card Sheila - you've been raiding your Ephemera packs too!
