More Folds.

It's week 2 of the Butterfly challenge

#93 Butterflies + X is for Xtra fold and or the colour Peacock  Blue/ Green.

and here is some more inspiration for you.

1st card  is a Block Step Card which looks complicated but is really easy to make. There are lots of tutorials on You Tube on how to make it from a piece of cardstock 30cm x 11.5cm and a scoring board.
 I have used lots of design papers and embellishments from my stash.  The butterfly on the top is 'Isabella' and 'Pippi by Memory Box.
 Butterflies on the side are an SU Punch. Best Wishes /with Love die cuts are  by Crafters Companion.

The other side of the card. It folds down flat for posting. 

2nd card is a Four Fold Card. Again very easy to make.  I have decorated the front with a Pearlescent Butterfly  acetate sheet from Lakeland (when they used to do craft stuff). Unfortunately it is not showing up here very well byt does IRL. Sentiment is a Tonic die cut. I attached the acetate by green cord threaded through holes punched in each corner  and then tied in a bow.  Paper unknown from my stash.

 Inside of card looking down to show the folds which is simply the same size card as the front that has been folded into quarters and then attached to the card either end only.
 Paper is by Aspire Crafts called Sew Pretty.  There is another panel of the butterfly acetate attached inside plus another of the SU punched butterflies.
Sorry photos are the best I can get in this bad lighting and I'm racing to get loaded as the internet is up and down again.

Jane has also made a second card  for the challenge which you can see here on her blog.

Hope we have inspired you to play along. You have until Tuesday the 30th Jan to enter.

Two fabulous folded cards Mrs A. Haven't tried the step card before, looks amazing and a great way of using smaller scraps that we all hoard.

Wow, these are stunning Valery, hard to believe that the top one is made from one sheet of card and its very different to anything I've seen before.
