Fancy Fold Card

I have seen this pleated front fold (Technique Junkies) several times and really liked the look. Today was a perfect time to try the technique since the  Bloggers challenge and the monthly SweetStamps challenge were both fancy folds.
I used the depth of field technique (Technique Junkies) to stamp the background. Then I folded the front of the card. The image, colored with distress markers, and the background stamps are from SweetStamps. I die cut the image with an oval die and layered it over an oval frame which matches the inside panel. the card was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be.
