365 Cards Day 45

I'm super impressed with myself!! I've been 3 for 3 so far since I started making cards for 365 Cards Challenges.  Today's challenge was to make a trifold card. I haven't made one of these yet and I followed the tutorial found on Tammy's blog but I found the card a touch skinny so I wasted some cardstock and rescored my card at 2 1/4" and 6 1/4". 
I know the extra 1/4" doesn't seem like much but it makes the card feel just wide enough to make me not notice the skinny-ness. 

Anywhooo, I am quite happy with how little Ian turned out from The Greeting Farm. It's the first time I got to use my Hello Ian stamp and I'm so glad I decided to buy him. I stamped him in Staz On on watercolor paper and colored him with a blender pen an Classic SU ink. I also stamped him again on patterned paper and cut his hat and scarf out. The hat is popped up a bit even though you can't tell in the picture. Finished off the card with some satin ribbon from SU (love love love it) and some silver brads and pewter large eyelets all from SU. 

And once again, thanks to all the ladies that stopped by and left comments. Everyone's kind words absolutely warms my heart an makes me feel all bubbly inside. Makes me want to keep pumping out cards just so I can read more comments!!

Paper: Stampin' Up cardstock Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black and DSP from SU, watercolor paper
Accessories: Satin Ribbon, Eyelet, Brads (All SU)

I love making the cards too and reading what others think of them - it is inspiring! This is a sweet card, I love Ian. The little touches of repeating the colors throughout just make this a great card!
