Chalk Ah Lot challenge.....Join in on the fun

For my card today for the challenge at Chalk-Ah-Lot,

I chose to make a Double Z fold card. You can see the tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers HERE.
It is incredibly easy to make. I find that I don't usually make cards that have fancy folds but then when I do I'm amazed at how easy they are with such awesome results. I will be making another one of these cards for sure.

Here's what it looks like when it's closed up. I used some egg stamps by Stamp N Plus that you can find HERE. I used M1513 Tulip egg and L1505 Forget-me-not egg. I colored them in using powdered chalk and paint by Stamp N Plus. I combined the peach chalk with the color Passion for the flowers and the green is a combination of Mossy green and Cool green powdered chalk and paint. The sentiment stamp is from a set of greetings which includes labels that you could use to personalize your card or on your scrapbook pages. (Mom, Dad, Pastor, Uncle...). There is a picture of the stamps and details about it at the bottom of this post. 

Here's what the card looks like with the closure off and card opened. It has panels of cardstock decorated with patterned paper ready for an inside greeting.
The tutorial noted above, uses ties a piece of ribbon in a bow and foam adhesive to keep the card closed. I couldn't find the right ribbon and my foam adhesive is MIA at the moment therefore I improvised and made a "belly band" out of cardstock to slide easily over the card keeping it closed when the band is on and open when the band is off.

The patterned paper is by K and Co, kraft cardstock by Oriental Trading Co, watercolor paper by Strathmore, pearls by Want2Scrap, ink by Hero Arts.

If you are interested in purchasing the set of greetings and labels from the Stamp N Plus company, please call  715-271-1873 to place your order with LuAnn. Please tell her that Cindy sent you. 

Best wishes for a fabulous week.
