The current High Hopes challenge is to do a Fancy Fold card (anything other than a standard card fold). I chose to use Flyin' High Santa for my card, along with an old Stampendous sentiment stamp. I've been meaning to make this card for some time, so this week's fancy fold challenge was just the inspiration and motivation I needed to actually get it done!
I added lots of die cut clouds to all the various layers of the card, giving it lots and LOTS of dimension. The plane is cut out by hand, and a healthy layer of Glossy Accents added to the entire surface. While the Glossy Accents was still wet, I very lightly sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for extra sparkle and shine. I attached the banner to the plane with baker's twine, and embellished the banner with a cute acrylic snowflake accent. And if you look really close, you can see a little tiny white pom pom on the tip of Santa's hat. *cute!*
