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…

Playing In The Rain Fun Fold

This week I am featuring a cheerful fun fold card using the  Playing In The Rain bundle.  The recent class focused on Playing In The Rain Bundle and this is one of the cards participants were able to create.  Isn’t that bunny cute!  Though the stamp set includes the bunny, this bunny is from the Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper.  A  coordinating die from the Playing In The Rain dies makes it easy to cut the bunny shape.  More of the designer series paper is used for the background prints on the card.  Who doesn’t like a cheerful card?! 

Cut Dimensions for the Playing In The Rain Fun Fold Card:
  • Mango Melody Cardstock (Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″; 3″ x 4-1/4″; scrap for kite die cut)
  • Rain or Shine Specialty Designer Series Paper (floral print – 2 pieces cut 2-1/2″ x 4″; checked print 4″ x 5-1/4″ for interior; 2-1/2″ x 6″ for envelope; bunny for die cut)
  • Basic White Cardstock (2 pieces 2-3/4″ x 4″)
  • Basic Black Cardstock (scrap 1-1/2″ x 4″ for kite)

Petal Park Thank You Card

Today’s card is from the recent class featuring products from the Regency Park Suite Collection. The Petal Park Bundle is used to create the focal point on the front of the thank you card. In addition, the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder adds textural interest. Do you notice the card size? It’s not the typical 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card. The card is the 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″size in the Memories & More Cards and Envelopes Packs. It’s a nice alternate size to use especially when creating specialty cards. You’ll find the card materials and an assembly video below.
