Catch the Bug Challenge - A New Fold



Another of my hubby's colleagues is pregnant (it must be something in the water!) I certainly never expected to get so much use of this Bugaboo set!

The current challenge at Catch the Bug is 'A New Fold' so I tried a gatecard fold.

Here is the other side which shows the fun sentiment!



And here's the inside with space for writing:



Papers are Nitwits again. I cut out the mat using a Nestie, then measured across and down the die's cutting edges to get the rights size and shape for the image.

Flowers are Wild Orchid, ribbon is Hobbycraft, leaves are a Woodware punch, and I stickled with Waterfall stickles. I also used Glossy Accents on her specs and shoes.

Another pants picture - the card isn't that wonky, honest, guv!

Thanks for looking

luv, Mags x

PS Sorry the pictures aren't very good, I had to take them in a hurry yesterday so hubby could give the card today!

Promarkers: Putty, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink; Cinnamon, Cocoa; Vanilla, Ivory, Powder Blue, Sky Blue
