Hello again, peeps! Well, I thought I was finished posting for the year but decided to create one more card this afternoon to enter into The Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge! Our sponsor is Fred She Said, and participants have the option to choose from New Year, Christmas, Thinking of You and Anything Goes themes – and I chose the Thinking of You theme this time. I created a triple cube fun fold with an inspirational feel that I thought would be a good ending to 2020. I love me some fun folds and this is actually the second one of these I’ve made – you’ll see the first one on January 1st!
Despite it’s looks, this really is a super easy card to create. I reached for some double-sided papers in teals with a floral pattern on one side and stripes on the other which I paired with light and dark teal cardstock. I added an iridescent gemstone to the center of each flower on the panels for a little interest.
COVID came to mind while I was creating this card so I chose this sentiment that would be appropriate for someone who isn’t feeling well or is dealing with a sick family member or dear friend, or for someone who has lost a family member or friend. It has been a horrible year and I really hope 2021 is a better one for everybody.
And one more peek… flattened out and ready to put into an envelope. I love that this folds flat for mailing!
