Happy Tuesday, peeps! I wanted to share one of the cards we made at my club meetings yesterday! This card is a CASE from Beth McCullough, who got it from her team member. (You can see hers HERE). I just adore this fold; it's easy but impressive and can be used with almost any image or diecut! Here's my take on it:
The basic folds are very easy....on a standard-sized card (8 1/2" X 5 1/2"), score at 2" and 3 1/8" on the longest side, then turn it and do the same thing on the other end. Fold on the score lines as shown and decorate as desired!
For our card, I also used the beautiful Bird Ballad DSP, and for the focal image, we cut some watercolor paper with the Nested Labels dies and loosely colored it with Blushing Bride ink, flooding it with water first, then adding a little ink to get the desired effect. The bird was stamped with Memento ink and colored with blends; now if I could just learn to stamp straight, without my Stamparatus, LOL! I used Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette blends, but one of the other girls used Balmy Blue and Mint Macaron and it was beautiful!
We also stamped a little sentiment on the back, where we would place our signature.
Here's another take on the same fold, this time using Rooted In Nature, Rustic Retreat for the sentiment, and Garden Lane DSP:
This makes a great masculine birthday card, don't you think? And finally, here are the little gifts one of my club hostesses made for her co-stampers....so fun! I know Cassidy will be thrilled to get hers!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
