Fancy Folds...Joy Fold for BSC#2

Good morning everyone!  It's official...I'm the parent of a teenager!  YIKES!  How scary is that?  I took him to IHOP for birthday breakfast this morning...we had fun.  He has been asking me what we were getting him and I always say underwear, so I made a stop on my errand run this morning and picked up a couple of packages of boxers for his gift bag.  I couldn't lie, could I?  LOL!  He'll be sooooo excited.  One can never have too pairs of undies anyway!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAKE!!!

Now, on to my card.  I made this one for the challenge over at The Beary Sweet Challenge for The Beary Scrap.  Fancy Folds is the name of the game.  I made my very first joy fold card...how fun!  I really want to try (at some point) a swing card or flip flop card, I've heard them called...the instructions at SCS sounded confusing, so I passed it up.  {If any of you know of another place that has directions to make it, please let me know.}  On my card I used a brand new image from Wink Wink Ink called Hanging Out.  There is a boy and a girl version (b&w AND colored) along with sentiments...too stinking cute!!!  Be sure to get on over there to the STORE and buy yours today!


I hope you can see the dimension.  I printed two copies and colored and popped up her head and arms to make it look like they are really sticking out through the tire.  :O)  I love the effect.  I used some jute for the rope and I sprayed the Prima flower with Smooch Spritz to give it a little bling.   Not bad for my first attempt at this type of card, I think!  Have a wonderful day!!!

Hi Lelia! Hahaha - Jake would die if he knew about this post! This card turned out great. I've been thinking of trying the joy fold, too - I love how you did yours (how the top part flips up rather than left or right). Very cool!

This image is absolutely hysterical! I remember that bored mid-summer feeling...

Thanks for joining our Beary Sweet Challenge - good luck!
