Crafting with Chris

Well it's been a full and busy but enjoyable day.
Up early for the hairdressers first thing, then off to Chris's to craft.
We each made a card, then went to Crystal Peaks to meet Janice 
(Chris and Barry's younger sister) for a spot of lunch.
A quick trip into Poundland for dishwasher tablets on the way out,
then back to Chris's and made another card.
After that came home, cooked dinner and sat relaxing for a while.
Just realized I haven't posted on my blog, so thought I'd better do it now!
Here's the first card that we made today.

Front view - open
 Colour combo is So Saffron, Black and White.
Card base made from 1/2 a sheet of 12" x 12" Subtles DSP Stack.
The pieces that were cut off diagonally at the top are reversed and stuck on the bottom
which you can see in more detail on the next photo

Fully open showing centre panel to write on
Card closed for posting

Part Open showing centre panel detail.
Stamp sets used : Papillon Potpourri, Everything Eleanor and the sentiment from Petite Pairs.

Really like this different fold, have enjoyed making this - thanks Chris!
