Top Tip Tuesday - Designer Paper Challenge

Surprise!!!! Last week was suppose to be my last week as Guest Designer over at Top Tip Tuesday...and it was. So what am I doing joining in another challenge? They asked me to join their team as a regular Design Team member!!!!! How exciting is that!!!!

So here I am sharing the next Challenge...Use Designer Papers...it doesn't get easier than that:)

The Tutorial at TTT this week is Zig Zag Flowers. If you would like to be considered for a Guest Designer spot on TTT, use handmade flowers on your project and add GD after your name when you link up!!!


Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"



The Sponsor's for this week's Challenge are:

Robyn's Fetish-offering 4 stamps of your choice



and Simon Says Stamp!-$20 gift voucher.
Photobucket

You may recognize the style of this card...I'm loving how easy and fast it comes together, and the unique fold...I've used it a couple of times already, you can find the instructions below.

I used a couple of My Mind's Eye papers for my card. I used a Zig Zag flower on my card...I love how easy and pretty they are to make. I got a new die...the Fence...from Our Daily Bread and had to use it on my card:)


As I took this photo...with the sides open...I noticed that it seems a little stark, so I'll add a piece for writing a greeting and signing your name. I was doing this at the last minute, shame on me, lol, and didn't have time to make one & add it, and then photograph it.


Recipe: Patterned Paper-My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Two Collection & Colorful Christmas Collection, CTMH CS-Vineyard Berry, Olive, White Daisy & Black, CTMH Ink-Black, Baby Pink & Creme Brulee, CTMH SS-Happy Birthday & Tender Tags, Distress Inks Vintage Photo, Martha Stewart Punches-Pinking Scallop Border, Hydrangea, Grass Border, Butterflies & French Scroll Corner, Our Daily Bread Fence Die, Stickles-Crystal Ice, Platinum & Pink, Nestabilities-Lacy Circles, Scallop Circles & Fancy Tags, Paper Crimper, CTMH Glitter Brad.


Bendy Fold Card Instructions:
I found the instructions by Emma Fewkes over on Lady and the Stamp, you can see her instructions HERE. I found them a little wordy so I thought I would share my instructions based on hers, with you.
