Lyn said Quirky Well Fold It!


In case you haven't guessed - it is Quirky Crafts challenge time again! Lyn has set the challenge as "Fold it", make something with more than one fold, anything will do it doesn't have to be a card. 
We are generously sponsored by The Cutting Cafe who are giving all three prizes, and provided the team with two sets of printable files to use. I have used some of the many bicycles and sentiments from Lets Go for a Ride. 
I decided to make a side step card, and had to go find the instructions on Split Coast Stampers  (where there are at least a couple more tutorials I want to try). This card was so much easier than before because I used the Scor Buddy, which is the smaller size of Scor Pal board, and the instructions were written using one of these in inches and I didn't have to try and convert it to metric. I bought the Scor Pal and got the Scor Buddy free in a great offer last year, so my Scor Pal is metric and the buddy is imperial to provide the option of using either as required.
The ribbon tag, bicycle sentiment and some of the panels of paper are cut using Spellbinders dies. The spotty ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. The final touch was to add a pearl heart to each wheel of the largest bicycle although it looked just as nice without. Saddles, handlebars and hearts are coloured with Promarkers.

Top down view showing the back of the folds decorated with the star paper, papers are by DCWV. I just need to add a panel of white to write on the back and this is done.

  2. I had to press the home button this time to get the comment box.... but I'm here now! I love the bikes! I might do bikes for the reminder! Although I have already printed something out. Great card! I got mine in about three minutes to posting time! Regina's comment made me think of Mars Attack for some reason, maybe a good idea for a future challenge! ((Lyn))
