Challenge #219 - "A Card with Many Folds" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers well its my turn again to host this weeks Challenge and this time we want to see that you have created a Card with at least 2 folds please. I hope the children all went back to School OK and you are now able to spend a little more time Crafting, Im eagerly looking forward to the arrival of my second great grandson who is due on the 16th, but if hes anything like his brother he could be late deciding to make an appearance, so hopefully by  the next time its my turn to host the Challenge he will have arrived I will keep you informed.
Anyway as always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter, and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website


But this is always providing you have used one of their products on your card and that could be either a Image, Backing Paper or Printable and they are such good value against the british pound, you will find lots to choose from here The Paper Shelter website, so do click on the link and browse to your hearts content. But even if you dont use one of their products they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice so you really cannot loose can you?
Anyway here is my attempt of creating a double fold Card.


I have used "Japanese Cute Doll" for my main image, and I have to confess to have used a pre-coloured image for my card and you will find her here, she comes as a digi as well as a pre-coloured image in jpg and png so you can choose which you prefer, I have also used the separate backing paper for the other two folds.
I took a A4 card and folded it into a three fold card then I used a Marianne Butterfly border die to create three mounts for the folds, on top of these I have placed two of the backing papers for the inside and the image on for the front. I then used a piece of double sided adhesive paper and put gilding flakes on it and cut them in strips to mount behind the butterfly borders as shown in the photo.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "A Card with Many Folds" Challenge.
