Fancy folds in pink with green

It's time for another challenge! Actually two challenges, because with this card I'm playing along with Our Creative Corner and Crafter′s Companion UK.
For Our Creative Corner is the challenge fancy folds. Crafter's Companion has a color challenge, namely pink and green.

FromLein I got a CD with all sorts of fun cards(thanks again for that cd!), and for this card I used one of the layouts.
I (still) don't have a scorpal or another tool to score with, so my first attempt went wrong with the folding part. I had used cardstock that was too thick. In my second attempt I used thicker A4 paper, and the layout was for 12 x 12. So I had to change all the measurements, but I succeeded. Here is the result:


The supplies:
  • Distress Ink: shabby shutters, spun sugar, victorian velvet, worn lipstick, peeled paint
  • Stamps: French Script and swirls from Tim Holtz, memories from Teresa Collins , eiffel tower and aimer la vie from kaiser craft.
  • ribbon

Of course I used my new stamp-and-cut method for this card. You don't have to cut twice using the hinge method, you can also stamp on the first cut out of the stamp. It's less work, but a bit more tricky.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Sannie,

Super gave kaart hoor, vooral de Eiffel Toren!! Love it!! Groen met rose, daar was ik niet opgekomen, maar ik vind het een geweldige combi. Prachtig weer.

Graag gedaan hoor, die CD. Er staan super leuke dingen op. De meeste kende ik al, maar een goede omschrijving is altijd handig he.
