Sassy Studio Designs Dare To Be Sassy Thursday 9/6/2012

Welcome to another Sassy Studio Designs Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge. This week's challenge is "Fancy Folds." We want to see all of those fancy folded cards. This is the perfect opportunity to try a fold that you have always wanted to make but never got around to!

The base of this circular side step card was created with Kraft cardstock. Using papers from my stash, I created the background and incorporated "paper tearing." The image "Captain Hook" was offered as a freebie during our last new release chat. I fussy cut the image colored it with Copics and used a glitter pen to highlight the sword, hook and buttons. While fussy cutting I cut off the "plume" and substituted a real feather. The ship and treasure are Jolee's dimensional stickers and the sentiment was a freebie from Create w/TLC. I distressed the edges of the "mat" and added Tim Holtz distress ink around the edges to give it a vintage feel.
