Fancy Folds

The Fussy and Fancy challenge 
is being hosted by our lovely and talented Annie
and she has chosen the theme
A Different Fold/Shape.

Our sponsor is Wild Orchard Crafts.

I have an entire notebook of 'fancy folds, but do you think I could locate it?
Not to I went to my favorite place for inspiration
and found this
'Circle Side Step' card Tutorial HERE.
I didn't post the tutorial here because number one
it's not my tutorial
number two
she has a wonderful and easy picture  tutorial to follow.

I cut a 6 1/2" circle on the Cricut Explore
making things pretty simple
then just followed the directions from there.

I cut a second 6 1/4" circle to use as my background.
I simply cut it apart to fit each piece.
The back of the card is covered as well.

I die cut a doily and a wreath (twice)
for my center 'attraction'.
All of my papers used are 'snippets' from my
scrap bags!

Tiny Roses were added along with a few holly leaves and berries.
the berries were die cut using red glitter paper snippets.

I added a doe and fawn and a few pine trees to finish.

It was a fun challenge, one that made me 
'think outside the box' as they say, 
pushing me to get a bit more creative.

Head on over to Fussy and Fancy and see all the 
beautiful creations the design team has to offer!

Leslie Miller said...

Ohhh, pretty, pretty! I love the spots on the fawn. Of all things to mention first, right? But there's just so much fabulousness to see on this -- the roses, the paper, the twig wreath. Wow! And those stripedy trees are so cool! I want stripedy trees! Very fun shape, too. I just make the same old boring card...
