Chapel Road Artstamps Blog Challenge - Unique Fold

Time for another fun challenge over at Class Act. The challenge is  to use a unique fold. Lucky for me I had a little help from an on-line friend who found a fun new technique called the napkin fold for me to play with. .

This is the view of the card folded and with the band around it.

Here is the view with it open:
Rather than me try to explain how I created this I will send you right to the source: Napkin Fold. 

The only main requirement was a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock. I pulled out some of my Bazzil bling and some beautiful shimmer paper from The Paper Company. The stamps are from the Chapel Road ArtsStamps and include: Variations Lilacs and Butterfly Square.

The edges were punched using a EK Success border punch and the doilies are from Spellbinders.

You can check out the rest of the teams fabulous creations and the details of the challenge at the Class Act Insider.  The Design Team links are on my sidebar as well!

The great news is that the challenge is open to any stamps, if you use any of the Class Act stamps or Chapel Road Artstamps  you will get two entries in the challenge.
