First – before we get started with today’s tutorial – don’t forget about this FABULOUS event this weekend! It’s FREE. You can see some of my most favorite and amazing stamp friends give you some super cool crafting ideas…..
And – these days – really – where else will you have to go? It starts tomorrow!! – hang out with us on the private FB group that night and again all during the day on Saturday. The lives, videos and samples will be on the site for you to catch anything you miss for about a week.
Door prizes, inspiration and no strings!
Click the picture – you will need my name (Cheri) and this code 697FVRQW for entry. Open to US residents (and to those who are not SU Demonstrators – if you are, go to the bottom, there IS an event for you too!)
Now on to our tutorial. This technique is for a Fun Fold that I have used several times in the past – the first time with the lovely Ornate Frames Dies – I think you are going to LOVE IT!
It’s not difficult at all to do – just take it one panel at a time!
The secret to these cards is having a nice assortment of stamps and dies to show through the holes and fill in the windows.
This suite fits the bill for sure!
I used a combination of the stamp set from the suite and then the lovely Designer Series Paper.
Don’t color too many of the flowers or it will be too much. There is a lot going on with the card already. Take a “lot” card and use the “less is more” theory, lol.
Then I used foils from the Noble Peacock and just regular Gold to give some lovely lace accents.
It’s a beautiful card. While I used the Ornate Thanks you can easily adapt the exact same card for a wedding, shower or Mother’s Day by swapping out the sentiments.
Instead of adding bits of words across the front on another version you can try some small flowers.
I hope you enjoy this – and I hope you are able to join me in one of the upcoming events this weekend or next!
I will be hosting a Retired Stamp With Me event for anyone in the US – it will be super inexpensive – and you will be able to join live via Zoom or FB or watch later on YouTube. I will be mailing kits to those who are participating – watch middle of next week for BOTH the retiring list AND the information on how to get your card kit!! If you are not on my email list – then do that now – it will be in the easiest way to get information on getting your kit.
