Hello friends. The next post in my Fall Card series features two cards using the same Frame die in two very different ways. And I also stepped up one of the cards by adding a fancy fold inside the card. The first one is a shaker but it turned out to be difficult to see the shaker bits inside because of the word die I used, so really this one ‘doesn’t ‘need to be a shaker; it could easily be a floating sentiment like the second card.
For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and another piece to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I die cut the shadow from the Honey Bee Stamps Large Thanks Dies (retired) and backed it with Acetate to create a window. I used the Catherine Pooler Fall Frames to emboss the border on the top panel. Check your embossing machines for the proper sandwich to do this properly.
Hello friends. This post is all about adding fancy folds to your cards. I used different shaped dies and papers as well as a variety of stamps to create different themes. These were inspired by Catherine Pooler’s video on fancy folds over on Stampnation. Check it out here>>.
For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base and then I scored the front of the card at 2-1/8″. At this point you need to decide what shape you wll be die cutting out and which side you will be folding your panel. You will see that on my second and third cards the folds are in the opposite direction.
I chose a scallop square die from the Sizzix Framelits Squares Scallop Die Set. The way to achieve the flip window is to only die cut one half of the panel. To do this you just need to align your cutting plates along the score line covering only the side you will cut out.
Hello friends. I am starting my Fall series with a card featuring the new release from Catherine Pooler Designs. More cards using these products will be coming soon. For this one I featured the Woven Cover Plate. This cover plate adds lots of texture to your cards without to much work. That’s a win win!
On the inside of the card I added a piece of pattern paper measuring 1 x 4-1/4″ and another measuring 1-1/8 x 4-1/4″. I stamped a sentiment from the CP Joyful Thanks Sentiments with Eucalyptus ink and added another sprig.
