Cross Stitch Rose

Challenge 121
FOLDS (more than one fold)

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

I don't know what was in my head but all I could think of was black and white so I went with the flow for this challenge to keep my head quiet lol.  I tend to make all my cards square and buy them as card packs, not out of being lazy I don't think but more to do with having uniform cards for selling.  Making fun shaped cards if fun I agree but for the amount of time that goes into them and often having to make your own envelope too I am not sure they are fully appreciated by non crafters to the degree they should be and they are often hard to display too.  OK, so there is my reasoning for my card not being full of fancy folds hahaha, sorry Ike and Ginny :) :)

For this card I started by folding the right hand edge of the front of my card over a third of the way.  I then covered the left side of the card front and the right side of the inside of the card with a very old sheet of design paper from one of several pads I have kicking around that don't see the light of day very often.  The image was printed out in black and die cut with a black embossed die underneath it and finished off with black glitter sticky back dots.  This section was mounted on the front of the card with double sided tape.  A very, very simple and quick card to make so I feel a bit ashamed of myself but I do love the end result and hope you do too.
