Over the top wedding card

 This week at Sugar Creek Hollow we want you to think outside the box and create cards with more than one fold so our challenge to you is FANCY FOLDS. Remember, your cards must be vintage, shabby chic or primitive.

We will select one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. The Design Team will select one card as their Top Pick and the creator will also receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

For this challenge we are pleased to welcome a Guest Designer, Debbie Reid, who was chosen from the February Top Picks. Debbie and our regular designers have all created some unique and wonderful cards with fancy folds for your inspiration.

This card was a labor of love.  My very good friend 
and very good card customer requested a wedding card.
When I saw Sugar Creek Hollow's Fancy Folds challenge
I thought I would incorporate the two.  I found THIS
card on Pinterest and thus began my journey.
This card took me 5 HOURS to make.  I wanted it
to be just perfect and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned
out.  I usually say "I hope she likes it."  This time I'm saying
"She BETTER like it!!!"

This is the front of the card they will see when
they pull it out of the envelope.

Then they open it to find 4 panels.

Two of the panels have pockets.
One for the check or money...

and one for a tag that says "You hold the key to my
heart" which coordinates with the die cuts that I used
on the front of that pocket.

Here's the tag.

These are the two center panels.
One has a pretty digital verse  and the other
is blank so that my friend may personalize it.

I hope SHE BETTER like this!!
