Good Monday Morning. That means it's time for the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Challenge. The challenge today is to make an envelope fold card. I first saw this design on a
blog, Valitas Fresh Folds. She makes the card with a double fold. I kinda like the V-fold or
envelope fold. This is my finished card. I made my card with red cardstock and made the fold as per the
instructions that follow. The design paper is Basic Grey, Green at Heart. I stamped the flowers on a die cut diamond (sizzix) . I used a solid round stamp (remember shadow stamps?) and used colors in the designer paper to highlight the flowers. I sponged Ranger Distress ink around the diamond and the words (the color is Barn Door) The fence is also a sizzix die. There is also a Martha Stewart punch that makes a border fence.
The little butterfly is made from two prima 5 petal flowers with one petal cut off. Feelers
and flutters were penned in with stickles down the middle.

Hope you like this idea and have time to try it out. It's a simple fold and makes a unique card front with a lot of possibilities.
Have a great Monday. Thanks for stopping by. Until later.
