Hello everyone and welcome to the Calendar Girls' monthly Challenge!! :o) My on-line stamping friend Barb, was the awesome hostess for the month of May. She challenged all of us to 'shape up'! lol...
This is how she put it,in her own words:
" ....Let’s Shape Up. No—not running, biking, weights, but cards that have a different shape.
So, your May card is to be a Shutter Card, Side Step Card, Gate Fold, Easel Card, Joy Fold, Criss Cross, etc. Any shape works—but to be true to the challenges we have had in the past—try a new shape that you have not used recently or really take a leap and try a design that you have never done before! The theme of the card can be for any event that happens before posting our next Challenge ..."
**with this in mind I decided to case this beautiful card fold I fell in love with at first sight :
As soon as I read Barb's challenge, I knew this above was the new fold I was going to attemp to make for my sweet, sweet Mamma to give her for Mother's Day .
I have no idea what this fold is called...I am counting on some of my stamping friends to come up with its right name...lol....*Thanks in advance!*
To it, I added my own touch by embossing the front side flap ,using my alltime favorite colors, and added an extra heart fold to the mix. Once done, I made a large matching envelope from the beautiful SU designer paper I used (Bella Rose)
Voila' this is my result, I must admit I really like it,and was very pleased that my Mom loved it
very much. Hope you will enjoy my photos for this fun fold card to make,on which I used 'Element of Style' stamping set from SU.

Barb this was a GREAT challenge..and, admittedly,it was really hard for me not to post this card right after Mother's Day!
Thanks for the lil nudge to 'shape up!'...at least with paper and such.....:o)Thank you all who visited, your comments are very valuable to me...
God's Bless you all my Friends!
