First challenge on High Hopes challenge Blog

Last Saturday High Hopes Stamps has launche their own challengeblog.
to celebrate the kick-of one lucky lady will receive over a dozen of the new released stamps. Challenge #1 is to make a birthdaycard and include brads in your design.
Here's what I came up with....

It's a very big folded card. I saw this card on someone's blog (I forgot who's). I wanted to use a lot of stamps on my card and this one is perfect for that many stamps.
The measurements I used are as follows: 2 pieces of cardstock 15 cm x 30cm. Score the first piece of the cardstock at 15cm and fold (this makes the tallest part at the back).
Then score the second piece at 3cm, 12cm, 21cm and 25.5. Stick the 3cm fold to the bottom of the first card. Fold all the other score lines to create the concertina effect.
Card details:
Cardstock: Color Core
Design Paper: Anna Griffin
Stamps: high Hopes, Setniment text is also Hogh Hopes but made on the computer
Technique: aquapencils and waterpencil
Embellishments: Scrappersfloss, velvet laces and brads from Bazzill.
Thanks for stopping by,
xoxo Karin
