Paper Craft Crew Challenge 233 - Nifty Fifty, Fancy Folds & Dragonfly Dreams

Wow!  Is it really already Wednesday, March 1st?  The start of the third month of the new year and our 9th Paper Craft Crew Challenge of the year!  Time is flying by and although I keep thinking I am going to have more time there is never enough.  I am writing this post at 10:30pm on Tuesday,February 28th after my fantastic Nifty Fifty Party for my customers who have spent $50 with me over the last year or so and had filled up my board.  Although, they too seemed to be a bit stressed about time, everyone took time to have a snack and make the card I decided to share for this week; Paper Craft Crew Challenge as it meet almost every Tic Tac Toe box.  It more link a BINGO challenge than Tic Tac Toe!  It could be any of the following:

  • Lace (the doilies, Shimmer (Glimmer Paper) Collage
  • Sequins, Shabby Chic, Burlap (the little embellishment on the front)
  • Collage, Burlap, Insect (Dragonflies!)
  • Lace, Shabby Chic, Insect
I need to stop and take a moment to thank Susan Levasseur for the inspiration for this card.  I loved her colors and stamp set choice SO much I had to make it with just a few tweaks to make it my own.  

Yes, this card fits in a standard Stampin' Up! medium envelope!  Isn't that awesome!

So, here is a quick and easy template base of this fancy fold card.  I would recommend making a template and or practicing on a scrap piece of cardstock before you move on to your project.  Plus, then you always have a reminder of how easy this card is to make, but what a wow it will be to the person who receives it!

The Bermuda Bay layers are:
1 - 5 1/4  x 4
2 -  4 3/4 x 3 1/4
2 - 4 x 2 1/2

The Whisper White layers are:
1 - 5  x 3 3/4
2 - 4 1/2 x 3
2 - 3 3/4 x 2 1/4

The stamping on this card is very basic, but the SAB Glimmer Paper and the sequins along with the fancy folding make it a real wow!

So, now I challenge you to pick your favorite vintage Tic Tac, Toe boxes and create a card, scrapbook page or 3D item to share with us on the Paper Craft Crew page!

Thank you for popping by and letting me share my project.  It is late and I am sure I missed something, so if you have a question or want to order any of these fantastic products and get the Glimmer Paper for free contact me today!  I would love to help you!  

Until next week....

Happy Stamping!
