Here is the 1st demo challenge card for me. I do THO workshops, so my cards need to be easy enough for everyone to recreate.
This card works great for demos because:
*uses 4x4 square of designr paper (you can get 9 from 1 sheet)-shows how to coordinate from that dp
*quick stamping-2 color pads (rose and choc. chip) to show how they match the paper
*ribbon tails use 3-4 inches each-easy to show coordination (have folks tie knot 1st and then cut to save ribbon)
*Showcases different but EASY fold. Adhere designer paper first, and then fold in from there. Still fits into our envelopes with no problems.
to step it up you do the paper piercer lines-can do faux stitching if you want

What a great card! Thanks for giving a breakdown of why you think it's a good "demonstratable" card. At first glance, I thought it was a bit complicated (esp. for first-time stampers at a workshop), but really, it's not. Wonderful job.
