Funky Folds blog hop!!

 

Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn.


This ise myfirst  Funky Folds Blog Hop. I'm so thrilled to join this amazing group of like-minded paper crafters who love to make cards with funky folds. Funky actually means "modern and stylish in an unconventional or striking way"... so we are featuring cards that are not your usual rectangle/square portrait or landscape style. Think 'easel', 'pop-up', 'gatefold', 'z-fold', 'shaped' or 3D cards etc. The list is endless. All Blog Hops have an 'anything goes' theme using any type of 'funky' card fold


My card is actually a gate fold card with a fun pop up feature inside!!  I was looking for a great way to show off glorious papers and created this fold - it's a bit of a mash up of a couple of other cards.  


When you first see the card it's a traditional gatefold card that will fit into a standard envelope.  This fold shows off the glorious Thoughtful Journey papers which have stunning scenery and artistry.  


And then, when you open the card there is a floating panel to feature more of the gorgeous papers.


Each of the side panels are ready for any greeting you want to write to your recipient.  Contact me if you'd like the dimensions for this card at julia@handmadebyjuliaquinn.com 

Make sure you keep hopping!! Up next is Chantall
