Fancy Fold Blog Hop with Imagine That Digistamp

ITD's Creative Playground

Hello Folks!!  Today we are doing something a wee bit different over on the Imagine That Digistamp blog. Normally on this day every week we have a special Thursday Inspiration post. This week however, we would like to invite you to join in a special blog hop for some "Fancy Fold" inspiration using items from Imagine That Digistamp!   

Welcome to my stop on the Hop! If you've come from Kristy's personal blog then you are right on track. If you are just starting out, you can find the full hop list at the bottom of this post.

We hope you will be inspired to try some of these card folds, treat boxes or other 3D projects you will see along the way. Creating something a little bit different is perfect timing with Christmas right around the corner!

I made an anniversary card for my parents who just celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary last Friday (Nov. 10th), adopting a simple gate fold. I used an image from the Love Swans digi set. You can click HERE or on the preview below, to find it in the store.

Below you will find my card and some of the details.


Digital Image Details:
  • Love Swans: I have used the pre-coloured image from this set and added my own background which I manipulated in Photoshop Elements (background image courtesy of Free Footages & Effects). You can find Love Swans in the Imagine That Digistamp shop by clicking on the watermark linked above.


Digital Sentiment Details:
  • The sentiment on the top is from Paulette from Create with TLC. It is available for purchase in the All You Need is Love set which can be found in the Create with TLC store HERE. For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store. This sentiment was recoloured for the purposes of this card. 
  • The sentiment on the bottom is one of my own. You can find it on my blog for FREE by clicking HERE. There are a number of other 'love' related sentiments also available for free on this same post.

Paper Products:
  • The paper used for the card base is from Michael's.

Challenges I am hoping to enter...

Gorgeous card! Love the background a lot. It is so real looking. It makes the swans pop so that you feel like you are seeing real ones. Edwina Brown
