DIFFERENT FOLDS


Hi I wanted to share  the cards created in my Facebook Live and my class on Saturday , 6 th April .
My ladies created the Mother's Day tea pot card which I created in the previous Facebook Live as well . I decided on a different colour for my card and used Balmy Blue as well as the doily stamp set .



I needed to keep things simple for the next two cards and these next cards were perfect ! 
Measurements for this card are :
Base 4 1/8 inches x 5 1/2 inches 
DSP for base 5 1/4 x 3 7/8 "
Long strip 11 " x 3 7/8 "
scored at 
3 , 5 1/2 , 8 and 9 1/2 inches 
DSP  mat for base 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 
For more information , I cased my card from Lee Ann Greff here , thank you Lee Ann.
  





I cased this card from Teresa Howe here 
Thanks so much for sharing Teresa ! There is a downloadable PDF available when you follow the link to Teresa's blog . I decided to try this style with some DSP in place of the Whisper Whits card stock  Which style is your preference  ?

POP OUT WINDOW CARD


Hi and thanks for taking the time to read my blog .
I wanted to share the cards I created during my Facebook Live last night . I saw a video by Jen McGuire here and was inspired to give this card style a try .
This card style is so versatile as you will see in My Facebook Live video here and you will have all the instructions apart from the measurements which I will now share.
I used a standard sized card base which is Au A4 cut in half and this was perfect for the sizes Jen gave us .
The sizes I used for the inserts are
5 1/4 x 3 inches scored at 3/4 , 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 inches
1/2 x 4 1/4 inches scored at 3/4 , 2 3/4 and 3 1/2 inches
5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 3/4 , 4 and 4 3/4 inches
This is my favourite of all the cards I created and I couldn't wait to share how I did the reverse stamping and die cutting as well as my first time using the kissing technique. I used it to stamp the floral image from Very Vintage onto both tea pot and tea cup ! A shout out to Sandra Mastello for the idea of stamping the floral image onto the die cuts ! This was just what I was looking for because I love Wedgwood style tea cups ! I will add the supplies used for the two cards created in my video  . I hope you enjoy my video and I hope you will have a try at creating some of these cards as they are so much fun !
