How Fancy!Pat Frank is our hostess for Mo's Challenge this month, and her first challenge for us is to create a card using a fancy fold. I usually stick to making regular cards that are 5 x 7, so this was a real challenge for me.
I needed a baby card, so I chose "Spit Happens" for my image, because it just makes me smile! It also reminds me of our oldest grandson when he was a baby....his head was huge and round! He ran everywhere, and being so top-heavy, he fell all the time! His poor noggin was always getting banged up! He's eleven now, and, luckily, he grew into his head! LOL!
This is a gate-fold card that measures 5 x7 when closed.
This view shows the card open. The right-hand flap slides between the image panel and the left-hand side to keep the card closed.
