A Hoppin' Fancy Fold

 Double Trouble Challenge # 83 is my kind of challenge.

Trouble Maker has chosen the theme - Fun Folds.

(There are links to some tutorials on the DTC blog.)

 Did you know that May 13th is Frog Jumping Day?  Why would you?  For some reason, Double Dare's Twisted Sister has asked that we help her celebrate by putting a frog on your card.

And finally, the Double Dare is to enter the Crafting Happiness Challenge #95, whose theme is Frogs.  I suggest you visit this blog, if only to see the dancing frog!


I love Fun Folds and today I've made one that I never made before.

It's a Bay Window Card.

When it is removed from the envelope, it looks like this.


 But then tuck the pink strip on the right side under the inside strip, just like you would an easel card, and it looks like this.

Here's another view.  You can see the spring that makes the cute frog, a CTMH stamp and die, wobble just a bit.
I added a strip of glitter foil across the bottom for some shine and used a Pink and Main die for the scalloped edges.

It was really very simple.



Additional Challenges I am entering:

Creative Creases Challenge - AG with a Fun Fold 

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Something in the garden (I have a cute little garden toad that returns every year and lives in the planter on the porch. )
