In the Clouds Duel!

On the 15th of each month a great group of friends on Split Coast, the "Classy Card Ladies" have a challenge duel.  The two teams, Diamonds and Pearls, rotate the hostess for the duel.  Each team's hostess picks the theme and sends a small kit to each team member.  Today's the day for the Diamonds and Pearls to show off our creations using these kits!

I'm a member of the Pearls, and this month's hostess is Jeanette.  Hostess for the Diamonds is Kelly.  The theme that they selected is "In the Clouds".  Here is my card, using my latest favorite fold/layout:

The silver cloud on the right panel is popped up on only the farthest right side, leaving the other side of the cloud available to tuck in the 1/4" panel of the front.  This makes a cute stand-up card.

Here's a closer look at the right hand side.

Overall card dimensions are 5x7.  Fold 1/4" on left and right sides of the front panel.  Score the front panel at 2.25" and 4.75", fold to get the pop out shape.  

Here's the front panel flattened a bit for you to see.

Here's a look at the inside and the back of the front panel:

This was a very fun kit!  Thank you Jeanette!

Now it's time for me to go and admire the creative talents of the Diamonds and the Pearls.  Have a look - links to their galleries and blogs are in my side bar.  Then, maybe you can go outside and admire the clouds!
