MFT August Creative Challenge–Fun Folds

This month, the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is to make a card with fun folds. I chose to make a tent card – you can see a tutorial for making them HERE. They really are FUN! To see what some other members of the Design Team did with this challenge, be sure to check over at the MFT Blog.

I’m using a PI from the August release,
PI - Sunflower Girl. I colored her with Copic markers and cut her out, then attached her just inside my opening. I added a strip of die-cut grass, and also put some on the “mountain” fold on the inside of the card. A few embellishments and it was done!

Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:

Fresh Cut Grass, Sunshine, and First Place Award Ribbon
