Lots of folds

Right onto my fun yet faffy card of the day...  This card started off a nightmare as I couldn't get the folds right.  The problem was that I wanted the folds to fit my stack of 6'x8' cards, it's much easier to make if you are just using standard cardstock so don't be put off.  I'm just trying to clear my stash pile.  Anyway, once I worked out how to make the folds fit my 6'x8' cards the rest was easy peasy...

Let me know if you want the details on how to do this.  If I get enough interest I may even post my very first tutorial.  Let's see....

So onto the finished product:

You've seen the stamped image on my blog before, this is Toby with Roses again from Wild Rose Studio, isn't he adorable.  I coloured Toby with Promarkers and added a Ruby border to the card he was stamped on.  I fixed Toby to step one on the centre of the card.  On step 2 I added a red ribbon bow and on the final step a sentiment from Wild Rose Studio.  The sentiment is actually from the Christmas range, stating 'With Love at Xmas', as you can see I just inked the 'With Love' part, this way I can make my own sentiments out of stamps I already own.  Great idea right???  Oh do you see the butterflies on the card with the sentiment on it?  All I did was cut a rectangular strip of white card and then punched some of the smallest butterflies on the butterfly border punch from Martha Stewart, I think this looks fab.  What do you think?  The dp is 'My Minds Eye-Spring'.  A few flowers and gems in the corners from stash to finish it off.

This picture shows the card stood up so you can see the folds and now you can also see the full Toby image.  The previous image is when the card is laying down flat.

This photo shows you all the folds in more details.  Great project for me today.  Now that I have figured out the folds I will sure be back with more of these.

This card is being entered into the following challenge:
