Hello friends. The next post in my Fall card series features a window card using the coordinating dies from the Catherine Pooler’s Appley Ever After stampset. This was a very easy card to make. To add texture to the background I added an embossed panel behind it (more on this later in the post).
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.
