A Four Fold Card...

Hi! The current challenge is up at the Make My Monday blog. This week the theme is Fancy Folds. Here is the card I made.

This kind is called a Four Fold card which I made for the first time. I also challenged myself to use pattern papers instead of creating my own. I used the Beary Hugs pack by Mudra Craft Stamps. This is a wonderful kit with a wide variety of pattern papers. 

I first took a long piece of kraft paper that was 7" tall and 16" wide. I scored at 5", 4", 4" and 3" and accordian folded the card base.I used chocolate brown paper as the mat and three different pattern papers. I adhered the papers to create the basic card.

The first sentiment panel was stamped and heat embossed with WOW! Metallic Copper EP. The stamp is Hip Hip from Kaisercraft. I love the boldness of the sentiment on this. I also used the tiny cupcake image from the Let's Party stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps to create a border at the bottom. I popped up the sentiment panel with foam tape.

Here is the first fold opened.

The second sentiment is also from the Hip Hip stamp set from Kaisercraft. I stamped it with brown Memento ink. This time I used the banner image from the Let's Party stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps at the top and colored it with sketch pens. The candles at the bottom are from the Sweet Cakes stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.

Here is the final fold.

I left this panel blank so that a message can be written. I just stamped the cute party hat from the Let's Celebrate stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio twice at the bottom right and colored them with sketch pens.

Here is the opened out card.

Here is a complete view of the card.

I hope you like my card and are inspired to make something beautiful. You can link your creations at the Make My Monday challenge blog. And don't forget to check out the blog for some amazing inspiration by my team mates.
