Once More into the Fold.

We are into week 4 of the latest butterfly challenge which is 

#122 Spin The Butterfly wheel with F for Flap fold.

I have one last   style of flap fold to show you today for your inspiration. It is called a Fancy Flap Fold. I have put the instructions for making this card on the Butterfly Blog under the Card shapes page and is listed as Version IV.  Again it might look complicated but trust me it requires just two folds and two cuts and all you need is a scoring board and a trimmer or craft knife  + ds tape/glue to make the basic shape.  The measurements and step by step pictures are all in the tutorial.

My card uses Flap fold/Firebrick Red/Flax/Flowers/Butterfly.  from the wheel.
I have used a one sided design paper from my stash which has the colour of Firebrick red for it's background. The fancy flap is cut from plain card stock in Flax. 
The die cut used for both the square and the butterfly are by Spellbinders from their Basic A Set.  Ribbon and gem from my stash.

Here you can see the card partially open.
Below you can see the card fully opened.  I have decorated the inside of the card with matching paper.

I have had a lot of  fun over the last 4 weeks in making all these different flap style cards and hope you have enjoyed seeing them and that I may even have inspired you to have a go yourself.  The challenge is running for one more week and closes on the 28th May at 8pm (GMT).
