Crafty Sentiments Designs 'Use A Bear' Challenge

Good morning all, just where are the weeks going? I seem to be bogged down with orders and struggling to raise my head for anything else lol.

It is time for a new challenge over at Crafty Sentiments Designs and this week our challenge is to 'Use A Bear' and with all the lovely bears we now have in the store that shouldn't be too hard for anyone!!

For my card this week I decide to try out a different fold which I really like although because I used the Create 4 Fun Challenge 'sketch' which I would like to enter this card into it took some working out, but I got there in the end. It is a gate fold style card with sort of cross over sections, well that is the best way I can describe it anyway lol!

The base cardstock is actually a dark pink, it looks almost black on my computer as the colours my laptop screen are going and everything looks strange on my computer. I sure hope the colour looks better to you. I fully intended on embossing the yellow stripe but was so intent on making sure it all went together right so it opened I completely forgot.

This is it closed and below I tried to take one open so you can see how it crosses over.

oh wow I love the way this card overlaps and folds together. I'm into cards with either a different shape or which looks different in some way, so this has really intrigued me. Well done Kim, it's excellent! Love Karen xx
