Card Fold Feed

Double Z Fold Stylized Happy Birthday!!!

 I have been wanting to make the double Z fold card for awhile now. They are all over Pinterest. Some are SO HIGHLY DETAILED and just gorgeous!!! I am always in need of birthday cards (who isn't?) so I thought I would start there.

They are really quite easy to make. Cut cardstock 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". Fold in half and then fold one side back to the center fold. The strip is actually cut 1" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4" and 5"1/2 inches. EASY PEASY!!! I attached the balloons with a small strip of window sheet with a glue dot.











Stamp Set: Stylized Birthday, Balloon Celebration

Ink: Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight

Paper: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Whisper White, It's My Party DSP (retired)

Accessories: Layering square framelits, paper trimmer, Big Shot, magnetic platform, window sheet, white baker's twine, glue dots, SNAIL, Balloon Bouquet punch

I hope I was able to inspire you in some way and I hope you will give this card fold a try!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #201-Halloween Peek A Boo



Welcome back!!! Our home sweet home challenge is Halloweenish (is that even a word?) Since I do not send out Halloween cards I have a very limited supply of Halloween stamp sets but I did buy the Halloween Cookie Cutter Set that is amazing!!!

I made a peek-a-boo card this week. These have been on my list to make for awhile now. I should have taken a pic of my craft room floor. I think I wasted 6 sheets of cardstock. I am a visual learner and so I you tubed this particular card. I don't know if my heart just wasn't it or not really paying attention. GEESSHHH!!! It really is not that hard but MAN!!!! I did finish it and am very happy with it. I think I now have all the measurements memorized from making so many "mistakes". UPDATE: THE CARD ITSELF IS NOT HARD. I SHOULD HAVE MADE MYSELF MORE CLEAR. I WAS TRYING TO MAKE THE OPENING MUCH BIGGER-THEREFORE, THE MEASUREMENTS WERE NOT WORKING. ONCE I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS IT WAS PERFECT. I  RECEIVED SOME EMAILS ASKING ABOUT THIS AND I DIDN'T WANT TO DISSUADE ANYONE FROM TRYING TO MAKE THIS!!





I couldn't find a sentiment I liked to go with the skeleton and mummy so what's a stamper to do? I made my own. I printed out a whole sheet. If you would like these to print here they are  Download Timetounwind.

I also wished that I had some muslin that I could have tied around the card in a knot. Oh well, next time!!

Under The Weather

It seems like at this time every year the seasonal germies and crud start and I always have a shortage of get well cards. The hostess set My Hero has several occasions in it, one being perfect for these types of cards. If you are looking for a versatile set you'll want to get your hands on this set!! This is also a RMHC stamp set which Stampin' Up! so gratiously donates $3 from the sale of each set to a GREAT cause!!! I also got to reach for my new Umbrella Weather framelits.

I love the cut away card. It is just a different shaped A2 card.
