Pretty Fun Fold

Tonight I decided to try something new to me...I don't think I've made one of these before.  I love how it opens and closes and still leaves room to leave a message, unlike some of the other fun fold cards I've made.  I used a pre-colored image and paper from The Paper Shelter.  The image is called The Lady & The Fountain.  I added gems, flowers, a porcelain bird, a stick pin I made and some pink & purple pearls.  I drew some stitching around the image.

What is really cool about this fold is that you can make two of these with one sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock. The card measures 4 x 8-1/2, the strip is 1/2 x 8-1/2.
