So, this past week, one of my friends, Angela, asked me where to find a card on my blog.
She wanted to refer a friend to a card that we made using the SU Ready for Christmas Bundle.
I got onto my computer, and indeed I did not post it! However, the funniest thing is…I actually had added it to the line up of displays this month
at class just to remind everyone at class that it is still in the Annual Catalog. So, Angela was able to see it and share it.
I perused Pinterest to find who I cased it from…because it was so darn neat!
I found it was Joanne Cantrell:
This is the one we created for a Product Class using the SU Ready for Christmas last year.
You can use any small patterned DSP to be the wallpaper!
A simple folding back of half of the card front at 2-3/4″ makes this fun fold.
A message can be written on the middle panel that is left unstamped. I should have put a little sentiment there:)
I forgot how cool this bundle is…those puppies and presents…what a great set that is in the Annual Catalog!
Don’t forget that the Online Extravaganza is up and running!
A lot of Goodies on the list!!! Check out the last day of the sale HERE.
Now for some eye candy….
I had fun making this cute Foldover Designer Series Paper card.
A little history on the designing of this…I was playing around with folding my cardstock back on the front as I have done before for something different and adding a strip of DSP to the inside but then thought I wanted to showcase this absolutely gorgeous DSP more.
You know how it is with DSP, you either hoard it and use little strips here and there or just go all out and use a *ouch* huge piece! So, I decided cut my 12″ x 12″ piece into (3) 4″ by 10-1/2″ pieces and do a fun fold of DSP on the front. But needed to give it some support so I mounted it on a 1/4 sheet of cardstock and made a place for the inside greeting! See how much of the DSP you can show off? It is a great use of the DSP- three cards from sheet!
Tip: cut the 1-1/2″ piece off first from the 12″ x 12″ to make it 10-1/2″.
That way, you have a 1-1/2″ x 12″ piece to use later on either a landscape of a portrait card:)
How about a video to show you how I did it?
The Petal Promenade DSP is just perfect for this fun fold! Here is one with Highland Heather and Petal Pink with the darker floral.
The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls work lovely with the colors in DSP pack, too!
Time to play with that DSP you have…if you make one…send me a pic or email…I love happy mail!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Happy Monday to you! I have a fun fold birthday card for you today! And, it has a video, too!
I used to awesome new Broadway Birthday Bundle and the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is the greatest paper- bold colors on one side and gold patterns on the other!
Here’s the video:
* TIP: When I cut for the card, I cut two cards at a time from a whole sheet of Basic Black cardstock so I had a 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Basic Black cardstock lying on my desk. After the video was made, I saw the 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece I cut off the front of my card on my desk. I thought…hmmmm…that 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ I cut off the the Basic Black could be the actual flap! In the video, I have the flap measuring 2-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ but in the photo below you see the slight difference in the flaps, I just altered the other flap to be 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and the Lovely Lipstick panel on the flap is 2-1/4″ x 4″. Just thought I would share that- no waste!
