Motions and Folds Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I am so happy you are visiting today and hopefully taking part in the Motions and Folds Blog hop sponsored by Ellen at Card Monkey. Hopefully you came from Sarah's blog atSimply Shaddock, if not and you would like to start the hop from the beginning, head on back toEllen's blog. This hop was sooo challenging for me! First off, it's very hard to decide on which card to make. If you do some searching, there are a lot of options to choose from and some pretty neat cards could be made. I chose to make a Diagonal Double Fold Card. I found the directions online at Splitcoast Stampers and went from there. My friend Nancy is having her birthday tomorrow (Happy Birthday Nancy!) and I wanted to make her a very special card to celebrate the big day. I also made her a travel journal which I will be posting on Monday so be sure to check back! Anyway, Here is the card I made:


This card is made from one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. If would like a tutorial on this card, this is the one I used from Splitcoast Stampers:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/diagonal_double_pocket_card/ I wanted to include a fold in the card where I could put this little tag in. The tag is for her to use as a bookmark in her journal. The second flap opens up and that is where I entered the sentiment. I am a little obsessed with ribbon flowers right now so I included a flower and also some ribbon on the bottom. I chose colors that would go with the journal I made so they would all coordinate. I also used a Market Street Background Stamp called Hearts a Plenty to decorate the front of the card. I thought it came out really sweet.

So what's a blog hop without some blog candy, right? I have some very special blog candy sponsored by Market Street Stamps! I am so excited about this as I just love Market Street Stamps and would buy everything they have to offer if the budget would allow!
That's right, a 25.00 gift certificate to Market Street Stamps!! Just leave a comment under this post with an email address and I would love if you become a follower if you aren't already! I will choose the winner Monday morning using random.org, good luck!!

You next stop is Sue at Susana's Corner!
