A Little Birdie Told Me

Hi everyone, it’s Friday again, and time for another challenge with Pattie’sCreations. Today’s challenge is all about the folds. We want to see all of those wonderful different types of folds for your cards.  
I needed to make a card for my son’s 24th birthday (isn’t it amazing how old our kids get and yet how young we stay? Lol). The fold that I am going to share with you today is a new one that I found on Desire’s blog, Doing Life. She hasn’t got a name for the type of fold, but you can find it on her tutorial page under the heading of Maybe for Sept. 3rd, 2012. I used Pattie’s new image Two Can Love as I thought that it would be great for a birthday card. I wish that I could tell you all of the stuff that I used to create it, but I am not at home with my crafting supplies, so I will only be able to tell you bits and pieces.
The yellow paper is by Bazzil and the black and red cs are by Recollections. The die cut is my Nestibilities Decorative Labels One. I dry embossed the red paper behind the image and then used my roller to apply SU’s black ink on it. I did the sky in the background with my SU pastels and my SU Scalloped punch. The flower is also made with my SU scalloped punch.

Sorry but I can’t remember who the corner punches are by and the red hearts and red flat backed pearls are from my stash. The sentiment is from Bird’s Cards. 

And here’s a view of the side to give you a better idea of how the fold works. And of course I decorated the back and added a sentiment for my son.

Now it’s your turn to join in on the fun. Remember you must use a image, either rubber or digital. You should use a Pattie’s Creations image, but other’s are allowed. If you use a Pattie’s Creations image you will receive an extra entry. For a list of all the rules and prizes…and of course to check out all of the incredible creations my team mates have come up with, head on over to our Challenge Blog. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Charlene - hope things are going okay while you are with your parents.
What a unique design from Desire. I see how it's done by looking at your pics, just have to figure out the measurements, or I could go check it out at her blog, LOL. Perfect sentiment for this image, hope your son enjoys his card!
