We Stamp for Lara week 3 Colour Challenge - a tough combination! and a Fancy Fold

well sometimes the internet is agin me!
Just lost a whole post ( and an hour or two, aaarrrggghhh!!!)
so this will be better!

My entry for WSFL colour Challenge certainly did challenge me as the Crisp Cantaloupe is a terrible colour ( in my humble opinion)

In decided that since all my other entries for WSFL
 have used the Hello Love stamp set that I should do that again,
 which was easy since it's a great set.

This Fancy Fold Card is easy and fits in a standard envelope.

The base is 3 x 7"
Score at 1 3/4" and 5 1/4" and also score 3/8" from each end. The glue strip goes on these little flaps.
Fold the two side flaps to meet in the centre
Decorate a large panel for the front, I cut mine out using the largest of the Window Frames collections and then cut it directly down the Centre, Adhere each half to the card base on those little flaps.The inside panel for the greeting is 31/8 ' square.
I used the Burlap ribbon and trimmed it down to fit in the button (retired), and used some of the threads to decorate the inside panel. I Love this technique and use it all the time, and I was glad it was included in the WSFL techniques - #15. I also separated the Thick Baker's Twine in the Cantaloupe to tie the knot. this gives texture without too much bulk. I did use the Crisp Cantaloupe with the Blender Pen to colour the birdie's belly on the inside.
The crumb cake panels still needed a little depth so I used the fabulous strip of dots from Painted Petals to do that.
All in all I am happy with the end result but ti sure did test me to put those colours together!

As always I try to make 2 of the same (in an effort to save time and consolidate techniques - its a theory, nothing seems to be quick today). So here is my first version, not as successful because the framelit from Deco Labels was a bit small,  but I do love the new Crazy About You set!

well it has taken me ages, but I finally found the tutorial, you can see it here

thanks for looking, Liz
