I have wanted to make a bi-fold card for some time and here it is. I chose to enter this card in a few challenges that showcase both the monochromatic theme of this card and also challenges that called for the use of stitching, faux or real.
I started with a base cardstock in chocolate brown which I scored to create two folds. I applied a modern leafy designer paper from Me and My Big Ideas in beige and brown and applied it to the panels. I rounded the corners and turned up the bottom edges which are held in place with bronze brads. The same brads were used to attach the ribbon closure. I finished off the front by adding a brown cardstock heart hand stitched using a white gel pen. The embossed sentiment, A Gift for You completes the card. I loved the end result - a truly modern card that is a bit unusual.
This card was entered into the following challenges:
1. Penny Black, Week 97 - Monochromatic Brown;
2. Charisma Cardz - Monochromatic;
3. Allsorts, Challenge #48 - In Stitches; and
4. Sweet Stamping, Challenge #22 - Stitches.
