2019~~A Card a Week Challenge



Happy New Year's Day! Welcome to 2019!

Today is the first day of my challenge for 2019--I am calling it "A Card a Week". I set a goal to do a card a week--for 52 weeks--with a preset challenge for each month.  If you saw my post yesterday, you read my challenge themes for each month--January is Fancy Folds!  Each Tuesday, I will post a card that fits the theme of the monthly challenge.

Today is a gate fold card--one of my favorite fancy folds to make.  It is not that hard to do and I think it is a nice way to highlight a fun image or cute sentiment.  Today, I went with a sentiment that is perfect for New Year's Day!  I used some shiny metallic striped paper that I got last summer.  It was a pack of Cricut Papers that was on clearance and has various patterns of reds. 

Here is the card opened a bit:


Here is the inside of my card:



I hope you will stop back each Tuesday to see my creation for my A Card a Week Challenge!  January will be all about Fancy Folds!

This looks like fun, Barb! I may have to jump in.. just not this week. LOL Life is already crazy and we're barely 12 hours in to the new year. How does this happen?

Hmmm, I like how you have set this up! it will be fun for us (your readers) to see how it unfolds throughout the year :) Pun not intended, but I'll take it ;)
Love the shiny strips on the paper you chose. So happy and makes me think of peppemint sticks!
