Try a Blinz fold

I played the SCS Try a New Technique challenge today (TLC179)! This challenge was to try the Blintz Base fold. Apparently this is a type of origami fold, but it works great for framing in an image on a card (or a scrapbook page). Directions for that fold were kindly provided by Cook22 (all the way from Dublin Ireland!), right HERE. I still can't put the new Bella Rose DP down...so I gave this Blintz fold a try with it. It was surprisingly easy and something I will use again in future projects! Lots of August birthdays coming up : ) , so I pulled out the new Sock Monkey set and used the cupcake and "just for you sentiment". I did a little paper piecing with the cupcake. Love that technique...use it all the time! Click HERE to see a monkey card I made earlier this month with the same set & DPs : ) ! This set was a big surprise for me....I seriously did not expect to like it this much!!
This is going to be the shortest post ever, but that's it for me!! Thanks for stopping by... {{hugs to all}} !

Supplies for the card~ Stamps: Sock Monkey Paper: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Pirourette Pink, Whisper White, Bella Rose DP Ink: Black Stazon, Chocolate Chip Accessories: Fiskar Cutter/Scorere (for score lines), Silver brads & eyelets, Pink rhinestones eyelets, Paper piercing tool/mat pack, Paper snips, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Cropadile, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug with small round scallop nestability

This is lovely, Nancy, lovely colours too; and so many layers. Must have taken you a long time to complete.
