JFF - Week 7 - Try a new format


This is week 3 of Zoe's JFF monthly theme of 'let's try it out'.  I couldn't think of anything new I could try so Zoe sent me the instructions for a twisted box fold card.  I decided to make it into a mother's day card for my mum, hence the reason it's not too messy and inky.  She really doesn't like anything like that.  I did manage to use distress inks on the two triangle sections.  I thought the weight of the flower might cause the card to fall over, but it's actually quite sturdy.


This is the card stood up.
