It's Fussy and Fancy Time!

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
 Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge
This new challenge is hosted by Beth and the theme she has chosen is

FANCY FOLD OR SHAPED CARDS

I decided on a Z-fold card I spotted on the Heartfelt Creations newsletter recently.  I bought a big stack of their beautiful paper last year and totally forgot I had them ... so here goes!



OVERHEAD VIEW

CLOSED
Didn't it turn out beautiful!  I'm so happy with it!
I rarely make square cards because even though I think they are gorgeous
and love the extra crafting space, I sell my cards and I have found
people don't want to pay the extra postage required to send a square
card in the USA so they don't buy them.  HOWEVER, that doesn't
mean I can't send them for myself and I know exactly who's getting this one! LOL

I hope you've enjoyed my card today and are inspired to come join in our challenge.  And, for more awesome inspiration be sure to pop over and see what my team mates have created ... OMG, so much talent on this team!!

A lovely card I like the corner dies.
I'm from the UK so I didn't realise it costs more to post a square card this is one of my favourite shapes to make xx

Beautiful fold! Love that gorgeous flower and the way you have decorated your panels! So pretty! I always thought you could just mail a square card in a regular A2 envelope for the normal postage fee....no? We'll have to research! ;)
