{Spotlight Project} Becca Gets Her Fancy Folds On


Every once in a while, I do something stupid.


Like decide that I'm going to figure out how to make a popup computer desk card. Unlike other more mathematical, clean, and organized minds... my mind is a one-woman-tornado-lookalike piece of gray matter. It was not meant for figuring out fancy fold cards. Luckily you all get to be the beneficiaries of my stupidity.



My card base was cut to the normal 4 1/4'' by 5 1/2''. To make a desk for my "room" I cut a sheet of tan cardstock to 6'' by 3''.


I cut out a little place for the desk legs (woops - didn't measure this) and added some drawers, I used some brown Distress Inks to sponge around the edges and add some dimension.


I stamped a teeny coffee mug from the Sketchy Coffee Mugs stamp set, leaving a little piece attached to the bottom for a tab. Then I made another little tab, folding it in 3 places.

I also cut out and colored the laptop from the Hello You stamp club set.


I added a warm background and a wooden "floor" along with a sentiment from the same stamp set.

So there you have it - fancy folds. I did them. Victory is mine.

Ok, I know I'm being a little dramatic here, but I never do fancy folds so I'm patting myself on the back for just a brief moment.

I hope you're all enjoying the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop this week (the STAMPlorations post is here with extra prizes. Don't forget to check out STAMPlorations section of Coffee & Tea stamps!
