Fred She Said Heart and Roses Napkin Fold Card

A warm and hearty welcome to everyone. I hope this finds your warm and snug in your homes and not having to deal with the blustery weather. Here's a creation I made using the Hearts and Roses Digi Set found here at the Fred She Said Store. This is a really cool folding technique that I found here at StampArtic. Isn't this wonderful, when I saw it I new I had to try it. Not only is it a fun folding technique, but it reminds me so much of quilting I just had to do it.

See what I mean. This is the inside of the card. I printed out two sheets of the Hearts and Roses digi set and used some of the rose sprays for the four points on this card. I punched with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Punch and the new large lacy heart punch you see in the corners here. I distressed all the edges with tea dye distress ink. You can't see it in the picture, but I stickled all the edges. IRL this is amazing!

This is the card and the box envelope that I made to put the card in. I can't tell you how much fun this was to make. So get out a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock and start folding your way to a fabulous creation. You are going to love it. Thanks for stopping by. I have something else to show you again this week. I am on a roll....lol
