OCC Challenge - Fun with Folds!

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Hey there!!!  I have a fun challenge to share with you today.  If you are like me, you get stuck in a rut of making a standard card that folds in the middle.  Well, the challenge from Our Creative Corner this week is to make a card that doesn't fold the "normal" way or to use something folded on your card.

I wanted to try something new, so I headed over to the resource page at SCS and found this tutorial for my card.  I think I may have made a card like this before, a long, long time ago.  I have clearly been obsessed with the Hippy Girl paper pad by Kaiser Craft.  I used one of the label die cuts that comes with the paper pad as the focal point on my card.
Instead of closing the card with a ribbon that would need to be untied, I decided to make a belly band that will slide off the card.  The pink label die cut is attached to the belly band with foam dimensionals.  I also decorated the inside of the card using another piece of patterned paper with rounded corners.

You won't want to miss the other fabulously folded cards that the rest of the design team created at Our Creative Corner.  I Hope you all have a great weekend and have some time to join in this fun challenge!!!

Dana, this is so cool! I don't think I've seen that fold before. Your version is awesome - love the colors in those papers and your great label on the belly band!

Such a cool card, Dana! Love the way the whole thing folds up. Great colors and DPs too! The belly band is a great idea to keep it closed.

Have a great weekend!

Very pretty, Dana! Those cards are so fun to make but I never seem to send them to anyone! Love the main inside pannel and the wrap is perfect!

Great card Dana! LOVE the pp and colors you used. That belly band is something I think I'm going to try for my sister's b-day card.
