I Was Challenged

While at a paper crafters get-together a friend asked me to teach her how to make a mini muira card for an upcoming swap. She didn't have a 12" piece of card stock that the printed directions said to use so I told her to make it shorter. Well, she was making this way harder than it actually was and after a few minutes she got it.  We shortened the size to 9" as you need a length equally divisible into thirds.

Since I was working on Christmas cards for my July class I only had Christmas papers with me.  I finished my card a couple days later and boy, is it wild! All card stocks are from my stash and I colored using my Prisma Color pencils.

I made a video on March 10 (on my YouTube channel) and a post on March 11 on the making of this style fancy fold. 

Isn't this a hoot! I used the cool Holiday Gnomes set by Stampendous that I got at I remember my hubby's parents saying Uff Da when we went to visit them many years ago.  


Here you can see the way it starts to fold when closing.  I will be taking this card to my friend to swap for me as I won't be able to make the club meeting. I bet she'll get a kick out of it. What do you think?
