just dance

Hi everyone! Well, it’s hard to believe it’s March already! I’m happy to share that I’m once again sponsoring and guest designing for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge, this time for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #547 – Female! As a sponsor for this challenge, I have a great prize pack consisting of a package of Prima flowers, an adorable Crafter’s Companion Paintbox Poppets rubber stamp and a slew of handmade bows from Polly’s Paper Studio – all for a lucky winner over on the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge blog! So come on over and play with us!

I created an encouragement card. Those who know me know that I am a fancy fold fiend. I discovered a corner fold over on Liz’s Crafty Sunflower blog which looks very similar to one I made several years ago HERE but constructed a little differently. I see more of these little ballerinas on a birthday card for one of our granddaughters later this year using this fold! ;)

So, what’s better than an adorable little ballerina dancing her heart out?! FIVE adorable little ballerinas dancing their hearts out! ;) These stamps and dies are from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and I’m so smitten! The sky is the limit with what one could create with these ballerinas using different sentiments!

As Liz mentioned in a comment on her blog, the construction of this card is very simple. I used a 10″ square piece of white cardstock, scored at 5″, rotated and scored again at 5″. Cut one center score line up from the bottom to the center, then diagonally score the two sections at the top and decorate. There’s a plain white panel ‘hidden’ underneath for a signature and handwritten message. I used a Unity stamp on that panel and added half of a Velcro circle to stabilize the card while in the open position.

The card folds into a 5″ square, flat for mailing. So fun! Love how it turned out!
