Shabby Vintage Fan Card

Hi all, hope you had a nice weekend.  I've been in the mood of making fan-shaped cards lately. I made 3 so far, using different stamp images and color themes.  I am pleased they turned out pretty good. I will show them in separate posts. Here's fan #1:




The card measures about 5.5"x 5.5". The front of the card has a stamp image from Crafty Individuals which I colored with Copic markers. The back of the card has a pocket for tags. I cut out a half circle from a sheet of 12x12 designer paper and made accordion folds to form the fan inside the card. Dies used here are from Magnolia Doohickey and Memory Box.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Thanks again for stopping by.

Hugs Katie

A stunning fan card. The Crafty Individuals (maybe I am biased lol) is absolutely perfect stamp choice for this style and beautifully coloured.
This is very special indeed.
