#134 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with Q for Quarto Fold Card.

We are now onto the 17th letter of the alphabet which is Q and I bet you thought I was going to by pass that one!. Winners results for #133  are in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you. Can I please ask that  Winners do acknowledge their prize in the comments on the Winners post as well as emailing their details to me. This way I will know to expect an email.  Please state if you are only playing for fun so that it gives someone else the chance to win.

      Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours and 2 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
New for this Yr. The 7th element of the wheel is a card shape.
(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is now an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
There will be a card shape for the letter being used for each challenge and I will be showing a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards. 
The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize without having to combine all of the other 6 elements onto your card. You must of course use your butterfly.  The shapes will all be easy ones, just a different way to either fold or cut your basic cardbase. 

If you don't want to use the card shape then 
You can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel + Butterfly  to be entered  for the 1st Prize.

If you use a Butterfly + a Theme + a Colour from the wheel then 
you  will  be entered into the 2nd Prize. 
Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.

So lets get started.

The wheel is
Quarto Fold  Card.
(A card that has 4 distinct folds to it )

  Your 6 elements are:
Quick Silver/Queen Pink /Quinacridone/Quotes/Quartz Gems +your Butterfly.

N.B.   Queen Pink  = Pale pink.

(These colours  really do exist on the colour wheel).

Your quarto fold cards are both delightful, love the shapes and the paper used make them very feminine. The second one particularly catches my eyes with the butterfly closure and the romantic look!

Fabulous cards and inspiration Mrs. A! Looking forward to playing regularly in your fun challenge during 2020!

Hello, Mrs. A! Your quarter-fold cards are gorgeous! Love the papers you used! I like both styles and hopefully I will give it a go! However, in the meantime, I made a pop-up box card. I went with quicksilver - I just linked up! Thank you for inspiring!

I love these cards, Mrs. A!! Did you do a double type fold on the first one? I love that look. I just made the 2nd version and linked up. It was so much fun to make and I plan to make another one ... for my twin nieces. It will fit a gift card inside and I will give those to them for their graduation. :-)

Love your creations, great seeing different folds on the cards, Hazelxx

Janis said...

I LOVE your beautiful quarto design cards, Mrs. A.!! I don't usu even attempt the fancy fold, but this one was so fun and appealing. Thank you for making such great tutorials and showing us such inspiring samples!
I think I managed to do all 7 elements of your challenge....if the Take Flight sentiment that came with the butterflies is considered a quote. :)
Thank you for another lovely challenge!!
