Perennial Lavender Z-Fold Card

In today’s post I’m sharing another of the cards from the February card class featuring products from the Perennial Lavender Product Suite. Building on the last post featuring a fun fold, this design is a double Z-fold card. The Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper provides a beautiful backdrop for the die cut leaves and the Paper Butterfly Embellishment. The card also uses the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder to cut and emboss the sentiment.

Cut Dimensions for the Perennial Lavender Z-Fold Card:
  • Lost Lagoon Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ and 1-1/4″ x 11″, score both at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″
  • Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper: (2 pcs) 2-1/2″ x 4″; 5-1/4″ x 4″‘; 1″ x 5-1/4″; (2 pcs) 1″ x 2-1/2″
  • Basic White Cardstock: 1-3/4″ x 2-1/2″; 5-1/4″ x 4″

Perennial Lavender Book Fold Card

It’s been a month since last posting!  Where has time gone?  Even though I haven’t taken the time to post, it doesn’t mean that I’ve not been crafting.  Actually, I’ve been spending more time crafting than doing lots of other things.  So today, I decided it was “computer time” and I’ve been busy outlining my posts for the next few weeks.

Now on to today’s card!  It’s a book fold card featuring the Perennial Lavender Product Suite.  The product suite features two stamp/die bundles – Perennial Postage and Painted Lavender.  In addition, the suite features the Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper and two different embellishments.  For the February monthly card class, the cards all featured products from the suite.  In addition, word sentiments from the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder was incorporated on several of the projects.  In the assembly video below, I also demonstrate how to use the hybrid embossing folder along with recreating the card.

Sweet Citrus Zesty Birthday

Today’s colorful card sends Zesty Birthday wishes using the Sweet Citrus Stamp Set and coordinating hybrid embossing folder/dies set. The hybrid embossing folder with the coordinating dies helps create cards that look complicated but really aren’t complicated at all. The embossing folder/die combo does all the hard work! The card is one created in a previous card class and the designer series paper background has since been discontinued. However, you can easily substitute with another paper or stamp and create your own background paper if the paper. Have fun creating this Sweet Citrus Zesty Birthday card!

FYI…this is the perfect card to accompany a drink kit for the margarita lover! 🙂

Watch how to recreate the Sweet Citrus Zesty Birthday card in the video below…

Sweet Citrus Lemons

Thank you for the recent inquiries – I’m well! The past month was busy with my son’s wedding plus other commitments and something had to give. So, I decided to take time away from blogging. But now I’m back and will be sharing more projects with you! Take note – I have a backlog of projects so will intertwine the postings with new projects from the recently released 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.

This week’s project features the Sweet Citrus Stamp Set and coordinating Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder to create a cheerful card featuring lemons. If you’ve not purchased or used this set yet, you must! It’s a fun set that allows you to create a variety of citrus fruits. The Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder (like all the hybrid embossing folders!) is a game changer. Not only does it emboss but it includes dies that will cut a portion of the cardstock while embossing. Of course, you can also just use the embossing folder alone to texture emboss. You’ll notice on the card below that the background piece is embossed. Be sure to check out the video below from the recent class to see tips for using this fun set. Note: the Stitched Rectangle Dies and embellishment dots have retired but can be easily substituted with another die set & embellishment.

Sweet Citrus Lemons Cut Dimensions:

-Daffodil Delight Cardstock (Base:4-1/4″ x 11″, score/fold at 5-1/2″; 4-1/4″ x 5″ for embossing)

-Basic White Cardstock (4 1/2″” x 3-1/2″ for stamping/die cutting fruit; 5-1/4″ x 4″ for interior, 3″ x 2-1/2″)
