Week 30 (take three challenges)

It's week 30 over at 'Less is More' &
this week it's a 'Recipe'  & 'take three
challenges'. So I have chosen week 14
'colour' which was 'white on white', also
week 13 which was'Thankyou or
Congratulations '. My final one is taken
from week 15 which was 'embossing'.
Great idea C&M to use this recipe as
it has so many possibilities using themes
from all the previous weeks challenges. 
I had already decided to make a white
on white card again if it was possible
so was amazed to find C&M had aready
decided on  the same idea for a card too. 
Right back to my card, I made a tent fold
linen card as usual ( well I almost always seem
to make a tent fold card). Then cut a strip
of white card and embossed it with the
swiss dots folder, then 3d'd it to base card. 
I added a strip of sheer white ribbon ( hard
to see here), then cut a tag with my new
nesties (  fancy tags 2), then 3d'd that to
card also.
I punched a few flowers and embossed those
& added tiny pearls, also added a few
punched leaves too.I stamped congratulations
in silver and heat embossed that in silver/white. 
That's when I realised my mistake.....arggghhhhhh!! 
I had stuck the layers to the card on the wrong way,
so it opens sideways and not a tent fold!!!Never mind
just try to imagine it as a tent fold card as I always
think they look nicer! enjoy the bank holiday everyone:O)

Gorgeous Viv. If you hadn't said about layering it up side fold I don't think anyone would have noticed. But I must agree with you tent fold for some reason does look better!
