Know When to Fold 'em!
You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em,Know when to walk away and know when to run.You never count your money when youre sittin' at the table.There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.
Challenge Focus: Cards/Poker/Games/Gambling/Luck - anything loosely related - just tell us how it relates.
Required Element: A card made with other than a standard fold (think joy fold, z-fold, tri-fold, accordion, hinge card, etc.)
Restricted Element: No buttons. (Yes we know buttons are *hot* right now.)
So, now I guess is the part where I try to convince you that it is related, right? Well, personally, I don't think it was THAT far a stretch, so here goes. Gambling, if you win, you are fortunate-fortune cookie....get it. Plus they have lucky numbers on the back right?? There are also other reasons why I think this will fit, but lets keep it PG, kay?!! Easy enough, right, one would think so, but I had my card COMPLETELY done and forgot to do a fancy fold so I had to scrap the base and start over. Luckily, I only had to do the main image panel once. I used Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday sketch for my card along with the Paper Pretties stamp set, Flirty Fortunes. I colored my fortune cookie twice, cut one out and glued it on for a tiny bit of dimension. I used two different DP's, both from the SU Patterns Pack from last catalog, and some of the yummy new silver brads. The embossing was done with my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots folder...and just in case you can't tell, this card is a gatefold. Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
