Magnolia Monday #23 - A Fancy Fold with Bat Tilda

Happy Magnolia Monday!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend, thank goodness the Texas Rangers won on Saturday as it meant I got to watch X Factor on Sunday! LOL I love me some reality TV, especially talent themed shows.
I decided to go with a different fold for this weeks Tilda card, it is super easy but effective I think :)

This is a super simple fold, you have a piece of cardstock 6" by 12" and using a trimmer cut an angled piece off starting at the 4" mark on one end and up to the 6" (top) on the other. Then just score at 4" and 8" and fold.





I hope you like this one, I'm really happy with my coloring today, especially the shading on the jeans, it looks like it's supposed too! LOL
Be sure to add your card and I promise I'll visit.
Katie
