Fancy Folds

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the Creative Card Crew team; this fortnight our sponsor is Stamp Fairy and our challenge is "Fancy Folds".  Today I am working with the Tommy Here Comes Santa collection...thank you, Gerda, for the adorable image!

I'll have to say that "fancy folds" threw me for a bit of a loop...I tend to be a  no-frills stamper and I knew I would need some help with this one.  I went to Splitcoast Stampers, found a tutorial for a "T-Slide Card", and went to work!  I found the instructions to be fairly easy to follow and it helped that there were pictures.  My photos don't show the folding/scoring involved, that part is behind the image panel.  Below you can see the card opened and completely closed.

Image/Sentiment: Stamp Fairy Digital Stamps 
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Fine Linen and Dark Chocolate, Crate Paper DP 
Ink: Printer, SU! Black Marker
Embellies: Bella Dots, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust"
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will head on over to CCC...I think my teamies have really outdone themselves with this challenge!  I'd love to see you play along...what "fancy fold" will you choose?

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

ABC Christmas Challenge: U for Up to You (anything goes)
Cards Galore: Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft: Pieced Off
Make It Monday: Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time: Use a Digi
Totally Papercrafts: Christmas

Thank you for stopping by!
