Folds and Flowers

Still using up some of my demoing stash of backgrounds and made this card for KCUKs May sketch challenge. Nice to take part even if it's not a style I usually make and although I had to work to a set layout the challenge to me was to make the card a bit different and to use up some of my stash of decorated card!!
I made this card for Beryl from Wales, a lovely lady I met at the Port Sunny show on Saturday. 
I love this versatile fold which is so useful as a card insert.

The cover using card stencils sponged with Distress Ink

A couple of old ideas of how I've previously used the fold .......
It can be made in small scale to create hanging decorations by sticking a few folds together.


Or large to make unusual album pages
Here is a photo of how to construct them......quite simple !!

More gorgeous work, like the way you used the fold for an album think it works really well very clever.
