Elzybells Challenge 20 - More Than 1 Fold

I know I haven't updated in a while but I've been away on a residential. Took children climbing and abseiling - in fact it was my first time doing abseiling as a leader. I enjoyed sitting on the edge of a crag just dangling over the edge. All went well and a good time was had.

Anyway, onto the card. I got thinking about folds as that was the theme of the Elzybells challenge and thought how long it's been since I did any teabag folding - mainly because I didn't have any of the papers. So I got thinking and thought about using a stamp to create my own papers and this was the result:

It took ages to make as I had to fold each one, then unfold it to be able to stamp in the right place and then re-fold each one. Really pleased with the result but will definetly only make another one for a special occasion due to the time it took to make.

I created the backing paper by stamping the same sundae image using watermark ink so that it all ties in. All the images are from Elzybells including the sentiment.
