When I saw the technique challenge on Splitcoast (TLC676) was a fancy fold, the first thing I thought was “it’s gonna be trouble”. I was right. But at least I had resigned myself to that fact going in. And it was really only trouble for a few reasons…

1. I also decided I HAD to give the Gilded Faux Silk another try (first time was horrible). It made the sliding top really stiff & hard to fold.
2. My measurements were a little different so I had to reverse engineer it. Sheesh! Will I never learn?
3. I keep getting sucked into the bottomless pit of hubby’s plumbing reconfigurations. Not only has he acquired every plumbing tool known to man, he also constantly borrows MY crafting tools. Apparently, my tools are better than his tools, lol. And I have to help him reengineer the problem. (He’s NOT a plumber..he’s not even particularly mechanically inclined, lol.)

So..the gilded faux silk turned out better this time, probably because I needed snowflakes & blue & that looks good together. The fold finally cooperated. But then a fourth problem..silver & fancy folds are very HARD to photograph. It is what it is & here it is.

And here’s a look at the inside. I went simple since the front was an engineering feat!

A big Congrats to Kandie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS534) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the tree & birds & most of the layout, but I used different images, different colors & made my a thank you/sympathy card.

I masked off the die cut blue/grey panel & stamped the Woodgrain Bg across the top 2/3 w/ the weathered wood ink & added just a little gray in between areas. The greeting was stamped below in the majestic blue ink then I added the die cut tree & birds & a dividing strip w/ a little Candi dot.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Don’t you just love these adorable little penguins? They look so happy! I couldn’t wait to color them…and I love giving them rosy little cheeks and bellies. I put together parts of two greeting (the little Thanks fit much better in the space than the cursive thanks that comes w/ the Much part) and layered a die cut Snow to go between the two words. The snowflake designer paper was split to let the other paper show through & I added some snowflakes from the Snowflake Reverse die. I had every intention of adding some stickles or sparkly gems to the snowflakes, but just totally forgot.

Here’s a look at the inside..I’ll add a greeting when I know who’ll be receiving it. Below it are the Copics I used. penguin-thanks-inside-00194
