Bright and Happy Fancy Fold Card 2

Happy Saturday All!

It may be raining here in Nova Scotia but I don't mind at all...that means no out door work and more craft room time.  There is a silver lining for every cloud...

Today I am sharing a fancy fold card for a few challenges: Craft Hoarders Anonymous, Scor-pal and Wags'n Whiskers.  The bright paper is a hoarded pad of paper I have not used since purchased...which had to have been over a year ago.  Crate Paper's Random just drew me in so I had to buy it   But then I did not want to cut the paper so I bought another pad as the backup.  Well, I did not want to cut that either.  LOL.  I am my own worst enemy sometimes.  Finally this week I cut it and the end result was this super sunny card.

The base was made using Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles.  I die cut another sheet of it and then cut it down to make the gates. Spellbinders Elegant Ovals cut the yellow patterned paper from Random.  Next, I stamped Quietfire's Live in the Moment stamp onto white die cut paper from Spellbinders' Mystical Embrace.  Yes, I know the fancy fold card I made on Thursday used the same stamp but I wanted to use it again because it is such a great sentiment!  I made a white bow using my new Bow-it-all and adhered it as shown.  A little bling on the bow (also hoarded) was the finishing touch.  

To keep this card closed, I used Velcro under the die cut sentiment stack up.  On other cards I have also used a magnet to keep it closed.  Here is the partially opened card...

...and fully opened...

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
