Get out of your comfort zone!

Happy beautiful Tuesday and first day of February everyone!
Today starts a new challenge for Claudia & Company:

Create a unique fold

Design a card that is not your usual standard style, let's see gatefolds, z folds, tent, tri-shutter, stair steps - there are so many wonderful tutorials for these! {Just click on each link for fun directions}
For my card I wanted to try the free standing pop up technique:

Embellishments: Satin Ribbon Coral; Delilah Collection Buttons

I used Izzy from TGF, then rolled my own flowers from Be-Loved scraps. The yummy satin ribbon is even prettier in real life, and those Delilah buttons are so fun, it even comes with bling in the same container!
Can you believe that this card folds flat to fit a medium size envelope? I love that!
You can see the other beautiful cards here on the Claudia and Co. blog, this is also where you'll link up your work. 
Get out of the comfort zone and have fun with this challenge! 
Thank you so much for coming by, have a wonderful rest of your day everyone. :)
♥ & Aloha,
