Creative Sketches - Fancy Folds

Hi Everyone! Ready for a challenge?

The challenge today at Creative-Sketches is to create a project using a fancy fold of your choosing. I chose to try a new-to-me slider technique to create this 5x5 greeting card. Here it is in the 'open' position:

Wondering how it's made? Check out this how-to video and you'll be making one in no time!

(And don't worry, the video is 7 minutes long because I was moving slow - it is not a hard technique. I tend to get a little nervous making videos and end up sounding like Minnie Mouse on helium while  rushing through to finish. I was calm this time and took time to explain!)

Thanks for stopping by! To see more fancy fold projects, visit the Creative-Sketches blog.
