Here's a photo tutorial to help you see how this fold was done. Note: I ended up using the black and white floral side of the paper as the card face, but the tutorial is showing the folds as it would be done if the black tone-on-tone side of the paper was going to be used as the card face.

This is just a few of the many, many ideas out there and all of these can be interpreted in new and unique ways. Of course, you may have your own new creation. Some of these ideas could even be translated into scrapbook pages or mini-albums (don't get me going on all the ideas out there for this!).
What will you create? To play along, just follow the "rules". All you have to do to play along is...
Until next time...
- Use mostly CTMH products
- Incorporate this week's challenge (fancy folds)
- Link your project back to Heart 2 Heart from your blog post or online gallery. If you are linking from a blog, you must link directly to the actual post, not your entire blog.
- You also need to mention H2H in your blog post.
- Finally, we do ask that you consider turning off word verification, as it does make it easier (and less time consuming) for the design team to leave comments, as well as visitors to your blog. ;)
Don't have any CTMH products? That's an easy fix! Simply contact your local CTMH consultant (or go here to find one near you) or you can place an order by going to my website. If you'd like an Idea Book, you can either email me (if you're local) or simply use the Paypal button in the side bar.Now it's your turn. I can't wait to your fancy (and fabulous) folds. :)
Until next time...
ETA 1/21: Thanks to Sarah Stone for reminding me about the fun color challenge that she leads over at Color My Heart. So I'm entering this card for this week's Color Dare Challenge...Black & White and a pop of color.
