The last step fold card for now

This is the last of a bunch of four easy cards I put together using 'all wrapped up' supplies by Kanban. The theory was to try and take my mind off the pain and burning sensation of shingles in my head and face ... it didn't really work, but at least I've made some cards! Once again, there is an acetate domed image over the underneath image.

This is for:

Paperminutes 224: stair step fold
Fussy & fancy 66: fancy folds
Lollipop crafts 84: Christmas in July
Through the craftroom door: Christmas in July
Hooked on craft 22: Christmas in July

  1. Now this, I think, is the best of all! The image is lovely, especially with the acetate, and the patterns on the edges of the card look so good!

    Thinking of you and sending you good thoughts and prayers for a swift recovery!

    love Mags B x

  2. what an utterly lovely card, and soooooooooooo cleverly designed in that "step fold" configuration. the graphic is beautiful as well, and i love all the scrolly bits you have added, it looks like a renaissance altarpiece in a grand cathedral!!!

    ps: i'm so sorry to hear you're suffering. i know that shingles can be seriously painful and hope yours will be SHORT LIVED!!!
