I'm progressing nicely with the Love Fest challenges over at Splitcoast. So far I've completed five days of challenges (maybe a bit late, but that's ok because you have until Feb 28th at 1pm EST to upload your creations to be eligible for the amazing prizes!). So what are you waiting for? Go check it out and play along!

My card today is for the Scor-Pal challenge and I went the 'Oodles of Folds' route. I used my Scor-Pal to create the pleated paper panel (a technique I learned in the Clean and Simple 2 Online Card Class I recently took).

I started with a card base of Whip Cream cardstock then added a layer of Kraft and another layer of Whip Cream. The pleated panel is Grape Jelly cardstock and I layered it onto a Steel Grey panel.

I used my Designer Labels 1 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Kraft panel for the image, which is from the Sew Nifty stamp set from My Favorite Things. I stamped the image with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink then added a little sparkle along the scroll thanks to my Gelly Roll glitter pen.

I stamped the sentiment (it's actually a two-line sentiment but I wanted it all on one line, which is easy to do because the stamps are clear) onto a strip of Whip Cream, trimmed the ends, then stitched it onto the image panel.

For a little something extra I used the Sew Nifty Die-namics to cut out the scissor charm from Steel Grey, coloured it with my Gelly Roll glitter pen, then attached it to the card with a Hemp Cord bow.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Sew Nifty then added the dress form stamped with Kraft Premium Dye Ink

Here are the supplies I used:
