It's Friday... time for another

Fancy Fold with 4th of July, Americana, Military Theme

This week's sponsor is:


PRIZE PACKAGE -- $15 Store Voucher

Here's my card:

I'm not sure what my fancy fold is called, but it features two diagonals. Here's a view of the card when it's partially opened:

The sentiment is attached simply with a star-shaped brad with allows it to swivel, making it possible to open the card.

I also had the joy of creating a card using a McMahon Five Designs image, gifted to me by the incredible owner! THANK YOU, SUE!

Both are fantabulous cards!!

I love that fold on your SMC cards, and that DP behind the fishbowl is wonderful!!

Sniff, sniff! That has to be one of the sweetest images I have ever seen on your first card - wiping my eyes! As we know, being military children, that real life photo is probably sitting in our old photo albums! Beautifully done - I had to do a double take on your second image, at first I thought it was a piece of paper towel! (you know, the baby wipe technique!) Awesome touch, both are out of this world fab! Much love! x0x0

Both cards are great. Love the bubbles with the fish and the type of fold you came up with for the Military.

The image on the first card is so cute with those oversized boots and I LOVE that creative fold! So fun!
And your second card is totally fab too! I love the paper behind the fish bowl and using the dew drops to make bubbles was so clever!! Have a great weekend, Jeanette!

These are AWESOME Jeanette! LOVE the fold on the first one - will have to give that a try sometime:) CONGRATS on losing 73 pounds, that's AMAZING!

Great cards. I had to check out McMahon too. Good stuff there. I am addicted to SMC. I have almost all of the digis Angela has drawn. I like your color combo for the card. Tan works well even for a baby.
