A Special Friend…

This design was a really quick one using patterned paper…stamped on of course! I’m loving that look these days. This particular layout came from this week’s CPS sketch and I played around with it a little to create my own version. The original sketch doesn’t call for a center opening card but I thought that scalloped line would be a perfect place to split the design and use a different fold for a change. It’s just like barn doors. When folding your cardstock, instead of folding in half…fold your outer edges to the middle. I attached a little piece of Natural cardstock that I scalloped the edge on to hide the seam. 🙂
