'Special Folds'

Good morning crafters. Our new challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies is my all time favourite 'Special Folds'. Those who follow my blog know that I love a challenge of a new fold. So this theme is perfect for me!!

Here is my inspiration for you.

It's a step card with a difference. As you can see I have made it into a baby's 'room' with chest of drawers and wardrobe. The idea came from one of my craft group, Christine. She always has some clever ideas. When she showed us this creation I thought it would be perfect for this theme.

I made the basic step card from white card stock and added panels of blue checked card on to the wardrobe doors and drawers. The central panel was covered in the same designer paper. The bottom edge of the main step card was cut with a die to give the shape of the 'feet'

Then came the fun part of adding the embellishments. The 'Baby' element is from an Ooh La La CD, 'Everyday Occasions'. The birth weight chart is from Kay and Co.

The little wooden 'baby' was bought locally and the bootees were knitted by an online crafter and given to me as a RAK, thank you Angie. 'Congratulations' is a die cut as is the baby vest.

I hope you have as much fun as I did trying out 'Special Folds' for this challenge. I am excited to see what folds you use to create your cards. Remember this is a fun challenge for cards only.
Have a great week crafting!!
