Let's See Those Folds!

Good morning! I have scheduled this as my daughter and Rowan are staying a few days because Rowan's Daddy is away for a few days on business.  So apologies now if I don't get round to you all, then my son and Harrison and Rafe are coming on Friday for the weekend - so lots of fun and cuddles for me!!

Today we have a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and we want to see your folds on your card as in easel card, step cards, z fold etc etc!!  Here is mine:


I went for a Joy Fold Card, one of my favourites.  Apologies for the picture but it looks really washed out, I took loads too and these are the best of the bunch.  I have used a new image from The Paper Shelter called Halloween available here.  I coloured the image with Copics using chalks for the background.  The papers are Echo Park The Apothecary Emporium, I am trying to use some of the many paper pads I have accumulated - a long way to go yet!  I cut the image out with SB Circle Die and matted onto Dienamics Pinking Edge Circle Stax.  The cobweb corner is La La Land die and the Dangling Spider is Memory Box.  The Wrought Iron Fence along the bottom is Memory Box.  My sentiment is made with an Uptown Rubber Stamp embossed in Black Sparkle.

Another view:

The inside:


As usual there is a fabulous prize available to the lucky winner:


Please take a look at The Paper Shelter Challenge for lots of inspiration.

Thank you so much for looking and the lovely comments you leave.

This is brilliant, I know what you mean about using papers. I would need five lifetimes to use mine up I think!

Sounds like you have a hectic few family days ahead but I bet you will love every minute.

You asked about the neat edging. It's a die - I could never be that neat! It's from the Blueprints sets by My Favourite Things, just love all those sets.
