What's Cookin'?


I made this joy-fold card for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge "F is for fancy fold." There's my favorite critter again - Cocoa mouse from SNSS. The papers, flowers and card stock are all from SU! in cherry cobbler and crumb cake. The red bling is from Pizzazz Aplenty. The little circle with a flower in the left-hand corner holds the card closed.


Here you can see how the card folds. There's one dimensional on the closure embellishment, while the other end is open to slip the corner of the card front behind it. I left the inside blank for now, but I could make it very snarky for a friend who hates to cook by adding something like "Roadkill?"  LOL  I'm open to any suggestions, so feel free to add one in a comment :)


 And here's a close-up of the front panel.

Thanks for stopping by and I may have something later today, so stay tuned!

Love the card, the fold, and the clever way you set it up so the card won't flop open. Great job.


Q: What to make for dinner?
A: Reservations!

This is adorable and I love the color combo. I think Roadkill is the best snarky sentiment you could come up with.

A gorgeous card Carol, I love your design and fabulous colour scheme. Your image is just delightful - I presume your friend has a good sense of humour - I can't think of anything other than 'Roadkill' !!

I love your card fold and I love those polka dots. Your card is cute, cute, cute. I don't think I can top you with the "road kill". :-)

A brilliant card Carol, doesn't the little mmouse look so cheeky and smug peeping out of the pie.

Please, PLEASE put 'roadkill' on the inside! That is by far the BEST snarky remark for this fabulous card! Thanks for joining us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for the F is for Fancy Fold challenge!

Love this fold, and thanks for showing how you keep it closed. I'm loving this little mouse too. You can make him cute or snarky. Don't think I can beat your inside sentiment thought. Sounds great to me. The beige & red color combo is so pretty on this one. TFS & glad your snow was not the stay & visit kind! TFS
