Yumi and Fumi Challenge: Multiple Folds

Hello!  Hope everyone is enjoying this nice, fine weekend!  It's nice and warm these last couple of days.  A big change compared to last windy!

We are onto week 2 of our current challenge at Yumi and Fumi Handmade Crafts.  The challenge is MULTIPLE FOLDS!

How many folds do yo usually go for when creating a card?  I am so used to creating top fold (single fold) cards!  It's pretty much automatic as soon as I start creating a card.  lol

Well, for a change I actually made this card with LOTS of folds!

I used the newly released Yumi With Birdie.  I love coloring her!  She is so adorable and because she is not too big, she took me no time to color!  LOVE!!!

I just realized the other day that Mother's Day is coming up!  So, instead of my usual Birthday cards, I went for a Mother's Day card this time.  I actually need to make a couple more.  Hopefully real soon!!??

I am not sure what you would call this kind of cards so if you know, please do let me know!

This card opens from top and then side.

This is what it looks like once you flip open from the top.  A message is revealed.

Leaving the top flap up/open, open the side flap (left side) and this is what you see.   Can you tell what it is?

Yes!  A gift card holder!  I made a little gift card holder and attached it to the card!

I lost count of how many folds here.  lol  Oh, I almost forgot.  Did you notice my pictures are a little different?  I took these pictures with my cell phone..late at night.  I am not sure what's wrong with my camera but when I tried to snap, nothing happened!  I need to have hubby check it.  I don't know anything about cameras!  lol 

Hope you have fun looking at my card . I hope I inspired you to create one and maybe enter our current challenge!  Please visit our blog for challenge details HERE and link your card on this post HERE.

Have a good one, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by!

I missed seeing this post while traveling. I truly love the entire card. Everything from the Yumi and Fumi image to the sweet inside message and the attractive card holder make your Mother's Day perfect in my eyes. You are so talented!
