More than "1" fold

The August 2010 challenge at Card-making downloads was to make a card with 'more than 1 fold'. Typical of me .... I as usual went a little overboard, and made a card with 9 folds, 5 mountain folds and 4 valley folds! It took me ages to get the folds in the right place, and the right way, and then to get the card to fold up properly into the 'book' shape. But, perserverance paid off. As per usual, one has to use one of the products from the website, so I used the "Trendy Hats set" from Debbie Gibbons, with the gorgeous spotted paper. I backed the images, and spotted paper, with black paper. The front topper was decoupaged, and the card tied together with ribbons on both sides. The first photo shows the card folded and tied up, and the second image shows it opened up. Well I tried anyway to show the various folds in a photograph, but after taking 10 shots, decided to give up, and post this one. A lot of fiddly work, but worth the effort.
