Fancy Fold Cards

Hello crafters! Jo back again to share today.  Thanks for popping by.
Today I have a couple more cards to share with you.  Yep I have kind of gone a little card crazy the last few weeks.  These cards are a little different in that they are fancy folded cards.
I have used the 6 x 6 Vintage Rose pad for my cards with some of the new dies

Here is a close up of my first card.  Kind of like an easel card but it has the ends cut off.  You will see from the template below how I have made this card.

I have used my favourite Anastasia Set from the Frames n Frills collection for the doily and also the decorative strips down the side panels.  I then layered another piece of patterned paper cut with my circle nesting dies.  Then I added the super cute Honeypot die from the Background savy dies.  On top of this I then put my finishing touches.  I made some flowers using the Sharp Flower die from the Kalini collection.  I cut about 4 of each and just laid them on top of each other.  Poked a Cyad Leaf at the top and my card is done!
Below is a picture tutorial on how I made the card base if your interested in having a go

Cut your card base at  22cm x 14 cm
and score and fold in half
Next cut 4cm of each side of the top of your card.
Then with the little piece that is left in the middle fold it in half and that is the part that you will attach your doily on.

Here is a closer look at my second card.  This is a tent card. 

The little butterflies (Edith and Baby die) are attached by a piece of fishing wire.  I have added a little sparkle using some Glitzin Glamour.  The flower patch is another from the Frames N Frills collection called Elissa Set.
Below is a template to help you make your card base.

 Hope I have inspired you all in some small way :)
Until next time
