Snarkalicious!

All Hail Me--the mighty Princess of Snark!
 
How ' bout them apples? I got honorable mention AKA Princess of Snark over at the  Sisterhood of Snarky Stamps blog.  I got this award for my loverly public service announcement warning people to not to accept false Leprechauns before them.  This was for their "P is for Paddy" challenge.
This time 'round the Snarky Sisters bring you the Letter F, with F being for Fancy Fold (that's actually a double F).  Everyone put their pinky in the air so they can be fancy!
Believe me, this card has several fancy folds in it. I'm not sure what this type of card is called so we'll call it the Fancy Fred Fold for triple F action.  A stamping buddy of mine saw this Fancy Fred Fold card online somewhere and figured it out how to duplicate it all by her little own self.  Her version was from a 7" x 9" piece of cardstock.  I thought that was a little too tall so I chopped mine down starting with a 6.25" x 9" paper.
I didn't really know how to take a photo of this card to show off the different folds, so you have a couple different views here so you can see the big picture.  Now I know you are wondering what is it that makes this card so snarky?  Lemme tell you! You know how some cards are made with love?!! Well, this card is made with germs, unhappy snotty germs.  So someone will get this sweet card in the mail that they think is filled with happy when really it's a biohazard.
The Fine Print: No seriously, I've totally caught the creeping crud.  Garden stamp by Great Impressions, greeting by Stampin' Up "Yipee Skippee" set, border punch by Martha, greeting die by Spellbinders "Labels 16," flowers by Prima and other stuff from my stash.

Whoa! VERY pretty card! Love whatever kind of fold/cut that is and it made into a gorgeous card.
Big congrats on the win too. Well deserved.
Hope the germs decide to go elsewhere and you feel better soon.

Congrats on your Snarky recognition. That was very Snark of them to recognize the validity of your Leprechaun warning too. Loved your card. I've never attempted this kind of FFFold, but it's very pretty & intricate. Fancy your friend figuring out the fundamentals all by her own self. But you made all the decorating decisions, so you get some recognition too! Loved the DP and trims, but please do keep the biohazard stuff out your way! TFS such a pretty card (but not the germs) & happy wkend. I hope you feel better really soon. Can't be under the weather for spring ...which is coming...Sooon. I hope! Hugs

oh i am so bowing down to the princess. how the world did she figure out how to make a folded card all by herself. i had trouble with one straight fold when i started. please don't send me your card. i had germs enough abounding this winter, besides all that snow, and cold, send it to someone in a warmer climate that gets all uppity and superior cuz their weather is warmer than ours. I have a cousin you could send it too. ah-choo

Fab fold (I made one of these once, but can't remember what it was called!) and very pretty colours too, lovely card :o) Hugs, Lisa x

Leslie Hanna said...

Oh, well YAY for the win!

Also, that card is fab. It reminds me of Cindy's tri-shutter card here: http://thecraftyfrugalista.blogspot.com/p/tri-shutter-card-tutorial.html template and all.

I know you are the Princess, but there are times when you can be the Queen of Snarky. (That is NOT a complaint). I enjoy the snark. LOL!

Karen Schroeder said...

Congrats on being one of our Princesses! Your card is beautiful and folded quite fancifully. Thanks for joining our Snarky challenge with your Fabulous Fancy Fred Fold! Please don't send it to me...don't want any creeping crud!

Great job. I find decorating fancy folds difficult.
Thanks for joining us at SoSS. Congrats on bring a princess.

Jessi Fogan said...

ewwwww, creeping crud. I feel for ya. I mean, not TOO closely because I don't want it, but you have my pity. Also, I love your alliteration, and the pinky in the air :)

Violent Kittie said...

Sorry about the crud, Princess of Snark! We actually don't have to be snarky all the time. Your fancy fold is fantastic! Love the springy colors. Thanks for joining us again at SoSS

Lindsey said...

That is some very fine fancy folding, especially while your pinky was in the air and your head was full of gunk! Such pretty spring colours, too. Thanks for joining us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Barbara Godden said...

Wow great fancy fold card, i had trouble deciding on how to photgraph mine too. Awesome job.

Violent Kittie said...

Congrats on the promotion to Queen of Snark!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Yay, QJ!! You shall forever after be referred to as QJ and not PJ!! And you should know that because I have genetically curved little pinkies, it's a pain for me to type a Q! I only do that for YOU!

In all seriousness, your fancy fold card is out of this world and your coronation is well-deserved!! Hugs, Darnell
