Fussy & Fancy DT Challenge Fancy Folds

Hi All!
This weeks challenge over at Fussy and Fancy is to create a project using fancy folds.  I tried a couple folds before I came to this very simple tri-fold card.  The card measures 6 x 11in" and is scored at 2 1/2 in" and again at 7 1/2 in".  My masculine card is a birthday card for my stepdad.  I was happy with the results and here it is....

I used twine to bind my card and hid it within the layer of ephemera.

Supplies: K & Co Ephemera
Gartner Studios papers
7 Gypsies metal embellishment

I enjoyed working on this card and look forward to making more just like this one.  
If you give it a try please let me know!

I look forward to seeing your projects over at Fussy & Fancy!

Shabby Chic Tag Tutorial and Card

I recently decided to create a tag and card using some goodies I picked up from the Great American Scrapbook Expo.  I couldn't wait to use my papers from Melissa Frances.  I want to share my tag with step by step photos so here it is...

Here are the supplies I used for my project!

Dry brush the edges with white paint.

Add shabby trims, laces, and embellishments.

Tie seam binding to finish.

Here is the card to match.

Have a blessed day!
