Fancy Fold Fun

 Hello  and Welcome Back!

Today I have a card to share that is a little different from my normal, every day A6 fold card.  I spotted a Double Z-Fold card over on Pat Tecza's blog and was inspired.  I made a few modifications in the size (I like A6 vs A2) and came up with this card.

My BFF Diane (Nellie's Nest) sent me a beautiful Mintay paper pad last year called Fall Festival and I thought it would be nice to use these coordinating papers to create a masculine card.  I know there's a few flowers on the front panel but it's on a ring of wood so figure it's just fine!  LOL

I love the rich colors in this paper set and of course anything wood works perfectly for the guys.

I die cut a Tutti Designs Happy Birthday sentiment for the front panel and then stamped an older Impression Obsession inside sentiment.  This card is ready for the postman!
