Fancy Folds

Supplies:  OA Buddies Stamp - Greeting Farm, grey and red 
cardstock - Canson, birthday sentiment - Waltzingmouse Stamps, 
glittered alphas - American Thickers, button - Basic Grey, 
machine stitching, Tombow roller adhesive, glossy accents, 
Notebook punch - Fiskars, notepage die - PTI, copics, 
black tuexedo ink - Memento, pop dots and Scor-pal.

This week's Challenge on Paperplay is "Fancy Folds".   We are very kindly sponsored by Whiff of Joy this week.  Check out the other DT creations right here.

This was a difficult one to make because I made the front before I decided to turn it into an easel card!!!  I know, completely backwards!
I then did lots of measuring and playing with grey cardstock until I was happy with how it stood.  I used a Basic Grey button (which I threaded) and adhered to the cardstock with glossy accents.

I matted the coloured image to grey cardstock and layered it using pop dots for added dimension.
