Tri Shutter Fold Card #2

This was another card from our Fancy Folds Class...It's one of my favorites to make.  I used Tea For Two DSP for all 5 of our cards that we did, and this is my favorite pattern from the pack.  I used the Kindess Matters stamp set butterflies to stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot using the Honeycomb embossing folder and then punched it out with the XL Oval punch and popped it up onto the Designer Frames embossing folder ran through over a layer of Very Vanilla that I cut with the Labels die and adhered it to a slightly bigger Island Indigo label an onto the card front.  I then used the Early Expresso marker in the Color Spritzer tool and spritzed a Paper Flower (in which both of those products are retiring VERY SOON!) and layered a Faceted Designer Button onto it with a bow tied from Early Expresso Baker's Twine.  The girls LOVED these cards and this one, believe it or not, was one of the EASIEST to ones to make.

Fancy Folds Card Class-Card #1

It's a Wacky Fold is so simple even though it doesn't look it.  The card base is Early Espresso and the front is layered with Pretty in Pink ran through the Fancy Fan folder.  I then punched the edges of a piece of So Saffron with the Scallop Edge punch and picked out a scrap of Tea For Two DSP and wrapped Early Expresso Baker's Twine around it and stuck it all down over a Doily cut in half.  I then used the stamp set Collage Curios and stamped out the words in Lucky Limeade and the Butterfly in Early Exresso, punched it out with the 1" circle punch and adhered it inside a Bottle Cap that I ran through the Big Shot to lay flat for sending.  I don't do videos yet, so I don't have any easy way to tell you how to do the inside fold, other than if you attended the class, you have the directions! lol

Build A Blossom

Where did April go? Wow, I just realized that I hadn't posted anything from card classes...Anyway, I had designed this card before the retiring list came out so little did I know that this cute set and coordinating punch were going to be on the list.  The flower petals (from Build a Blossom) were stamped in Daffodil Delight onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and punched out.  The stem is from the Bird Builder Punch out of Old Olive cardstock and the center of the flower is from the 1 3/8" circle punch from Early Expresso and ran through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot folder.  I used the Woodgrain embossing folder with Cherry Cobbler and layered on to that some more Early Expresso and Whisper White and stamped a sentiment(one I love very much!) in EE from the stamp set From My Heart.  Added some little Basic Rhinestones to finish it off.  Tommorrow I will start posting some of my cards we did at our recent Fancy Folds Classes!
