One of a Kind with Cheery Lynn Designs

The reason I have called this a One of a Kind card is that if I tried to recreate it exactly like this, I couldn't.
While at CHA this year, with Cheery Lynn Designs, we were across from a company that had all these fantastic ideas that I wanted to try!  So, sorry gals, you are my guinea pigs, so to speak.
I am trying my ideas out here!
I created this card from the die called Folding Fan.


Behind the fan I have pleated the paper that the fan sits on.  I was able to do this very easily using the 
Easi Score from Diamond Card Craft.  It comes with an idea book and pleating the paper was one of the ideas in the book.
I have tried to take a picture in full sun to show off the pleats.


I am using Authentique Paper's Splendid line.  I thought it was perfect for the overall feeling I was trying to create.



I used each fan piece as it's own canvas and drew a different design on each panel.


On the inside I used lots of fun things, starting with the Embossing Plate I used on the blue paper called Black Eyed Susans. I love using paper with white core, it just looks so lovely when it is sanded.


I also used the Lace Edger and the Zig Zag Ric Rac dies. The small fan on the inside I made with a small Scalloped Circle.


I love the layers and dimension on this, I hope you have enjoyed this too.


I wanted to make sure you knew about our current challenge.
