Song Birds

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a fun fold to share with you.  My inspiration came from a very lovely and talented lady.  Her name is Judy and she calls this fold a Horizontal Multifold.   As you will see, it is pretty simple to make but gives you a bit of a different twist for the times you want to add  that little something extra.

Here is a little closer look at the front.  I used Sweet Williams Strip and crepe paper to make the flowers.  With crepe paper you can make the flowers as full as you want because the paper is so thin you can layer many more die cuts to achieve your desired shape and fullness.

Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

B188 – Embellishment #2
B198 – Bird Cage
B266 – Tiny Things with Wings
B307 – Sweet Williams Strip
B308 – City Girl Edger
B312 – Burlap Border
B315 – Ivy Corner Flourish
L-10 – Coved Rectangle Classic – LG Silver Stackers

I hope you have an opportunity to play along with the challenge this week and put in your entry.   The theme is Keep it Krafty (use kraft paper)!  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life.
