Joy Fold Tiger

Hello.  Welcome.  Spring madness continues and my stash remains little used.  We have been having a bit of wild weather today.  Rain, wind, sun, hail, repeat.  So I decided enough was enough and I would try the joy fold card technique which is the MFP challenge this week.   You can find the tutorial HERE

This is the front of my card.  I used various patterned paper and the tiger from MFP Tiger set, stamped, embossed and fussy cut.

Opening the first panel.  I have used some die cut voile stars and some black stickers from Craft Creations.

I have added an extra panel and fold to the dark green element to give me a money/gift card pocket.  

I cut the third panel of the dark green element at an angle, glued just the edges to make a pocket and added a panel on the textured paper.  I stamped, embossed and fussy cut the other tiger from the MFP Tiger set, more stars and stickers.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
