Guest Designer at Fussy and Fancy

Ooh, it's an exciting post for I am happy to be the Guest Designer at one of my all time favourite challenge blogs - Fussy and Fancy!

My task as Guest Designer was to create a card for their current challenge -

FANCY FOLDS


As my wonderful friends in blogland know, I'm still quite a novice when it comes to creating cards and tend to stick to my favourite square or rectangle cards. In fact I've only veered from that path once, to create an easel card. I spent a fair amount of time googling all different types of cards with folds and almost created a flowerpot card, but in the end I couldn't resist having a coloured digi as the star, so once again I created an easel card. Ambitious aren't I?


I loved this little digi from Tiddy Inks and thought it was just perfect for a card for my pregnant friend Renee. I computer generated the sentiment "So excited to hear you are egg-specting" to match the darling image, which was of course coloured with copics. I am very proud of her hair I must say!


The papers are from Cosmo Cricket and I have set it all on Bazzil cardstock. The lace and metal paperclip are from my stash.

I hope you will pop over to Fussy and Fancy and enter your own fancy folds card. The Design Team have created some seriously clever folds, I intend to attempt each and every type along my card making journey.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Sassy Studio Designs - Metal
Paper Makeup Stamps - Easel Card
Poodles Parlour - Cute or Cuddly
The Ribbon Girl Blog - Girlie

Until next time,
Tracey

G'day Tracey, I used this image for a similar card for a friend who's daughter is expecting, it fits the bill so well doesn't it.
You've coloured it so well too.

Cheers,
Elaine
