Paper Engineering Folds

Color Fusers November Blog Hop!


This nice combination of fall colors had me thinking of an autumn card, but I couldn't figure out what to do with the Blushing Bride color!  Since it is a skin tone, I decided to go with one of my favorite Stampin' Up! Sets, the Beautiful You, and the gorgeous tangerine DSP I was saving from the Foil Frenzy pack of paper.  This is where my thought processes took me.....




Christmas in August???

The new Holiday Mini is fabulous with a lot of hidden gems in it.  Some of the sentiments are wonderful because they not only are large, they also have great fonts!  I have made this style of card many times before, but it is an oldie but goodie.  It holds a gift card and takes only a few minutes to make!  It is great for birthdays, weddings, practically any occasion.  The tree punch is discontinued.  If I had the holly punch in the current catalog, that would have been a great addition to this card!  The Christmas paper is Be Merry from our regular catalog and the sentiment is from the Swirly Snowflake Bundle.  Below the photos is a great tutorial for those of you that  are not familiar with this fold!

Gift Card Card Tutorial

Color Fusers Blog Hop for July 2017!


Cards do NOT have to fold in the middle!  I love to make cards that are a surprise to open!  The Whisper White Cardstock measures 5 1/4 by 4 inches and folded in half, forms the card inside for this card!  Using the Layered Leaves Textured Embossing Folder on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and backing it with Dapper Denim, makes a bold statement for the Colorful Seasons images from one of my favorite new bundles in the new catalog!  The new copper metal ribbon matches perfectly with Soft Suede Ink!
