S-Fold Card

I made this card for today's Ways T0 Use It challenge on SCS. The challenge today is called Embellishment Pile-up, and the idea is to layer several embellishments on top of each other to create one focal point, instead of spreading them out across the card. For my embellishments, I used olive green grosgrain ribbon (from Michaels), with cs flowers, and finally a Blue Square Ice brad holding it all together. I punched the flowers with my 5-Petal Flower punch out of Certainly Celery and Not Quite Navy cs, and stamped another flower in Certainly Celery on white cs then cut it out. I then spritzed all 3 with water, then formed them into a 3-d shape & let dry. For the card itself, the base is Not Quite Navy cut to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. The "S" shaped piece is Very Vanilla cut to 4 x 11, scored at 5 1/4 and 8 1/8, then folded as you see. It is stamped with Baroque Border wheel in Certainly Celery, and the flower from Fresh Cuts in Not Quite Navy, and the edges are sponged with Certainly Celery. The sentiment is from All Holidays, and is stamped with Not Quite Navy, then layered on Certainly Celery and Not Quite Navy, and attached ONLY to the left side of the card. TFL!!!
