Fancy Fold for Sugar Creek Hollow

Good morning and welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week our challenge to you is FANCY FOLDS. So think outside the box or past the single fold and let us see vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards with fun and fancy folds.

This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Don’t forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve.

The ladies on the Design Team are joined by a Guest Designer today. Please welcome Brenda Brown, who was chosen from the October Cards of the Week. All the designers have created some cards with very fun folds for your inspiration. To get details just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

I found this fun fold when I was surfing around and thought it was interesting enough and easy enough to make this week. It is an upright Z fold and I found the pattern here. Just one comment, my card only stands if it is clipped together (see the little circle), otherwise it wants to fall down. I am not sure if it the fact that I used card stock for the back section and that gave it too much weight but I don't mind, I still like the look of this card.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
