SCH: Fancy Folds: The Napkin Card

  I would like to thank Cec and her Design Team over at Sugar Creek Hollow for selecting me as a Guest Designer for this challenge! So excited and pleased as punch! 
  This challenge couldn't be more perfect! I have been into fancy card folds lately, so this was a a great fit! 
  The fold I've chosen to tackle is called the Napkin Fold. This makes a great gift as well as a card, I think! You could hide a little pocket inside and insert a gift card, a favourite photo or a secret sentiment! 
  I started with one 12x12 sheet of double-sided patterned paper. The paper I used is from K&Company Susan Winget Nature pad. The base sheet is the orangey carmel colour. I then cut out pieces of paper from the same set and glued onto the corners. You could use rubber stamps, or stickers too.
  The paper band that holds the ribbon and card together, is punched with MS Scalloped Dot edge punch. The flower die is Upsey Daisies from Die-namics. Ribbon is Hug Snug Seam Binding, inked with DI Vintage Photo. 
  I inked every edge with DI Vintage Photo. 

Here is the unfolding!

  The blue is the other side of the original 12x12 sheet I started with.
  In the centre, I used a bird/script stamp from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. I stamped on matching cream paper from the set and cutout. The sentiment stamp is from Autumn Leaves. They are both on a matching piece of paper from the set, which had a flower on it.
  This was great fun to make! Endless possibilities! I found the how-to on Youtube. Just search on Napkin Card Fold.
Hope to see your creativity over at Sugar Creek Hollow! Fabulous challenge!
  We will choose one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge. The Design Team will also choose one project as their Top Pick and the creator will receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for our monthly Guest Designer spot which will be determined after the last April challenge. 

Entering this in:

 Get Inky!
