DRS Designs Challenge #21: Raising a Flap

Today's challenge on the DRS Designs' blog is to use the Flap Fold Technique (tutorial HERE), a tri-fold card usually secured by a mini magnetic closure. Here's a ladybug greeting that actually started with a pre-made, textured black card base -- it even came with the scalloped edge!

Stamps: DRS Designs 'Ladybug Stack', 'Funky Thanks', and 'Dot Easy Background'. Paper: Black textured scallop-edged card base, real read, Basic Black, GP110 white, vellum envelope. Ink: Versafine onyx black, Real Red. Accessories: Prismacolor pencils, turpenoid, CM circle cutter, red satin ribbon, black dotted organdy ribbon.

The next card features several new releases by DRS Designs, including the Dustin Pike line:

Stamps: DRS Designs(Worm on Hook G843, Worm Can G847, Good Things sentiment F840, Easy Dotted Background H628). Cardstock: Kraft, Black, Riding Hood Red. Ink: Memento, Copics. Accessories: Rectangle Nestabilities, Basic Grey magnetic closures.

I off set the image to make room for this very punny sentiment, appropriate for all the anglers out there. Personally, I don't like to bait OR wait!

Here's the card when opened:
