Flap-Fold Challenge Card

Today’s card is for a “Mingle Swap” for my Scor-Pal group. We have been challenged to make a Flap-Fold card. Here is a site with instructions, but I didn’t follow them exactly. I started with a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock that was four and a quarter inches by 11 inches. I used a Scalloped Petite Oval Nestability to cut the scalloped edge on the flap. I scored my card at four inches and eight and three-fourth inches – from the bottom. My background paper is from the Die Cuts With a View Summer Matstack. I cut it so that there is a border of an eighth inch on the sides, but so that it goes to the top and the bottom of the card. I used a plain Petite Oval Nestability to cut the top piece. My magnets are between the Tangerine Tango cardstock and the DCWV paper.

I used Marvy punches for the circles – plain and scalloped. I put the dots on the scallops with an SU! Mellow Moss marker. The dashed lines on the circle (which is punched from Blush Blossom) are stamped with PaperTrey Ink’s Borders and Corners – Circle. The owl and the “Thinking of You” sentiment are from a Studio G set. I colored the owl with SU! markers, and cut out a flower from the background paper. I also used a white gel pen for the eyes. I used an Aqua Painter and my Tangerine Tango ink pad to color the flower in the sentiment. The ribbon is Mellow Moss grosgrain from Stampin’ Up! I think that’s about it!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
