Welcome to Glenda's Cards
I have been wanting to make a Napkin Fold card using reds and purples! Of course, it is for a Red Hat Lady! When I saw the current challenge at Just Rite Inspiration is to use more than one fold on a card, I got busy!
The card begins with a 12" x 12" piece of red Recollections paper. Purple paper is Bazzill and the purple check is Recollections. The paper inside the card is DCWV Posies Glitter print. Choosing where to use the different papers took awhile, but I am pleased with the results!
I followed the tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. The paper is scored at 3" and 9", then turn the paper. Score again at 3" and 9". Now the fun begins with all the folding! Check out the tutorial and video for the complete instructions.

Inside of the card! 

Spellbinders Nestabilities:
Eyelet Circles - Sentiment circles on the band. Blossom for the small floral mat on the band.
Label 10 - Sentiment mats on the inside of the card. 
Just Rite Spellbinders - Corners
Just Rite Stamps: Old Friends Set on the band. Nested Sentiments on the inside. I am still learning to work with stamps!
Martha Stewart: Flower Shower Punch Around the Page set. Also the fern greenery...I do not know that name.
Cricut Cartridge: Lacy Labels. The rolled rose is on Heart3 which is the 4th image from the right on the last row. The rose is cut using the layer feature and cut at 12". I know that sounds really large but you see the finished size. This is my first time trying a rolled rose-- need more practice, but I am liking these flowers
Recollections gemstones, pop-dots on the band, white ribbon from stash. Color Box lilac and Versa Magic Gingerbread inking.

Hope you enjoy this Napkin Fold card and are inspired to try one too! This is a bulky card so it needs a box or may be hand delivered.
