Onto today's card.
I'm not sure of the name of this fold, I've always called it an angle fold. I started off with a piece of card 10" x 7", which I scored at 2 1/2", 5" and 7 1/2". I marked 1 1/2" up from the bottom on the left-hand side and drew a line from this mark up to the top of the third fold. I then cut along this line, keeping the off-cut as a pattern for the sloped edges of the layered pieces. I used my favourite poppy stamp, it's part of a set by Hero Arts. I stamped it out once as a full stamp, then masked of the bottom half before stamping again, colouring them both with Ruby and Poppy Promarkers and a green Stardust pen for the stems. The embossing folder is Couture Creations 'Tied Together' and I've decorated the embossed panels with tiny pearls. I finished off my card with a border punched edge, one piece for the sloped edge and another across the straight panel on the right-hand side. I hope my instructions make sense!
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
