Daring Cardmakers - Folding up

A whole day dedicated to cardmaking so that is what I have been doing. I got all the chores done yesterday and I am having a blast making cards all day.
Here is one I made for the dare at Daring Cardmakers .

It's "just what it says on the tin", we'd like to see some folds on your cards this week.
Fold the whole card, fold some paper, fold some ribbon.
Do some origami, teabag folding or just fold over a corner of your paper to reveal the other side.
As long as there's some sort of folding used as a feature of your card then it counts. Any subject, any theme, any reason.

I folded my paper to make a bouquet of flowers made from MME stamps, Martha stewart punch and some stickles. I then used promarkers and stardust pens to colour. I added some BG paper and folded some more paper to make the card have more dimension instead of using an adhesive. I then added some doodles and a sticker. I am really liking the outcome.

Wow you've created a stunner here! Just love that bouquet... how sweet is that! Love the folded background too - very inventive. It's all gorgeous.

Love Lynda xxx

I love this bouquet of flowers. I once did a cross stitch of a similar bunch of flowers. Great take on the dare.
