Art Impressions Challenge # 39 Fun and Funky Folds
Today is my new son-in-law's birthday and I wanted to make him a fun card. Not only is it his birthday, it is his 30th birthday! When I saw that Art Impressions had their challenge using a special fold, I began planning.
I saw my sentiment first, and started building on that! The inside sentiment is a digital by Marlene, over at Disguised As A Grown-up. She creates the funniest things! The fish images are unknown. They are called Funky Fish and Funky Fish 2. I used an old designer paper of an ocean scene and white card stock for my base, with panel layers of Grass Green PL. The fishes are colored with Copics and my inside fish is popped so he can fold. There are tons of Stickles for sparkle and Crystal Lacquer on eyes and teeth to make them look meaner.
So by now, you have figured that my fun fold is a gatefold. I used a Velcro half circle to keep things closed, since the card came out on the thick side. Oh, andplease ignore the sun sticker I digitally applied to cover where I signed the card before I remembered to photograph it! Duh!
He will not be coming to visit until this weekend, but I know he does not visit my blog. I am very anxious for them to arrive, as I will get my own copy of the wedding photos to play with! Woo Hoo!
