This is my attempt at a fancy fold, a side stairstep card. (You can find directions at SCS if you've never done one.) I wanted to make it look like a little scene of a room, and it took more work than I expected.
To start, I used paper from "The Sweetest Thing -- Tangerine" collection from My Mind's Eye to create "wallpaper". The collection also has a pattern that looked like woodgrain, so I used that to make a hardwood floor. I had the die-cut window (an RAK gift) at hand. I watercolored an outdoor scene to put behind it, and added a snippet of lace as windowdressing.
The plant is a die cut (cut into two pieces and artfully arranged to look like a healthy houseplant), and the urn was stamped on a snippet of terracotta paper and cut out. There are tons of lovely chair stamps out there, but unfortunately, I don't own any of them, so I found some line art of a chair, printed it on brown card stock and again on another co-ordinating piece from the MME set, and paper-pieced the lovely upholstered wing chair.
The card is for these challenges:
Love's Rubber Stamps #100, Fancy Folds
Pixie's Snippets playground #121, use a snippet (the lace, plant and urn are all from snippets)
Word Art Wednesday, #128, Anything Goes
Sister Act #53, Anything Goes.
