Try It Out Tuesday #47 - Fun Folds!

Is there anything cuter than a little girl at Christmas time with some books? I absolutely adore Daisy from the Sampler 2 from Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and have been waiting for the perfect time to color her up. Suzanne, our oh so talented Design Team leader challenged us to create a card with folds and I decided to do a gate card. It's simple, but I love how you can decorate the sides and use ribbon and flowers. And the way it opens is fabulous!

Make sure to stop over to Susana's Custom Art and Card Design as she's got some great new products and deals going on. A selected few of her Shapeabilities are on sale so go on over and get a deal on some of them.

You know how I love these sweet faces! I just couldn't resist putting this one on a cute Christmas top with some green bows in her hair. Nothing makes me as happy as coloring up an Elisabeth Bell creation!

I love the look of the gate card and you can do anything with them that you want!

Make sure to stop by Follow Your Heart and see what my other Design Team commrades have come up with for you. They never let you down!

Card Ingredients:

Daisy from Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, Peppermint Forest paper stack from DCWV, Stickles, Smooch, cuttlebug embossing folders, Prima Flowers,
Rhinestones, nestabilities, Diamond Glaze
