First Fancy Fold

Ok, this was a biggie for me.  A fancy fold card!

I took days to get this done.  Almost didn't make it.


Most of you stampers that do this probably didn't even break a sweat. 



It may look weird to you, but here we go.





You are probably thinking...I don't remember seeing this fancy fold at the Just Add Ink's Fancy Fold Blog Hop.



It is, really!  It is Nikki Spencer's  traditional side step card....just


UPSIDE DOWN.



I wasn't trying to be difficult, really, I just really liked it better from this end.  I had placed my traditional side step card down upside down and thought...


HEY!  LOOKS LIKE STEPS GOING UP!



I just had to do it this way for me. ;)

I must have spent way too much time hanging upside down on my bed studying with my book on the floor (Back in THE DAY). 


I just feel like I look at things backwards, upside down....


you get the picture. ;)

Anyway....


Thank you, Just Add Ink.  You really made me crack down and 

MEASURE.  

NO EYEBALLING HERE, THAT'S FOR SURE.


You still have a wee bit of time left to enter...but not much.  However, check out the blogs...the fancy folds are INCREDIBLE.  I was in awe of all the choices there are.  


Have fun! ;)

  2. This is totally cute. I don't do fancy fold cards at all so you have impressed me. They scare me.
