Broadway Bound Fancy Fold Birthday Card

Good Evening,

I hope you are all well, so today is my first day on Maternity Leave... EEEKKK. I was very sad to say goodbye to everyone from my full time job on Friday, although it's not forever - I'm really excited for what's to come... We have 6 weeks until official due date so I'm hoping to get as much crafting in as I can...

Today I have this great fancy fold birthday card using the fabulous Broadway Bound DSP, it looks complicated, but it really isn't. It's just a lot of layers and score lines. Really Simple!!!





Measurements:-

Basic Black Cardstock
1pc - 5 7/8" x 11 3/4"
1pc of scrap for oval

Broadway Bound DSP
Numbers
1pc - 4 3/8" x 5 5/8"
1pc - 2 1/8" x 5 5/8"
Dots
1pc - 4 3/8" x 5 5/8"
1pc - 2 1/8" x 5 5/8"

Gold Foil
1pc - 4 3/8" x 5 5/8"

Whisper White Cardstock
1pc - 3 3/4" x 5 1/8"
1pc of scrap for oval.


Pop the large piece of basic black into the simply scored and on the long side score at  4 5/8" & 9 1/4". Fold on the first score line to the right, then fold the second score line to the left. Burnish well with the bone folder. 

Open  the card out flat, and adhere the large dots DSP to the left, and the smaller dots DSP to the right hand side - in the middle and the whisper white, layered onto the gold foil.

Fold in the left hand side and add the large numbers DSP, the fold in the right and adhere the smaller numbers DSP.

Run your scraps thought the big shot using the Oval stitched shapes framelit dies, cutting out the largest on basic black and the second largest on whisper white.

Stamp the sentiment in the centre f the white card and layer onto the black. Add dimesionals to the right hand side only, then centralise on the card front when it's folded flat and adhere. This will create an overhang on the left hand side, so you can still open it.

Needlepoint Nook Thank You card

Good Evening Everyone,

I hope you are all well.

Today I have a card the Wednesday Sketch Challenge over on Stampin for All, I know I'm last minute on this one... but I really did want to give it a go and here's my card...


Measurements:-

Whisper White Cardstock
1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 4/", scored at 5 7/8"
1pc - scrap

Old Olive Cardstock
1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper
1pc - 1 7/8" x 5"

Berry Burst Cardstock
1pc - scrap

Take your Old Olive cardstock and place in the layered leaves Dynamics Embossing folder and run it through the big shot. Just remember that this is a thick folder, so you will need to adjust your sandwich. 

Whilst the big shot is handy, cut out a berry burst circle in the largest size, and a whisper white from the next size down.

Create the card base by folding the whisper white cardstock in half along the score line and burnishing well with your bone folder. Add the embossed cardstock layer to the card front.

Take the Needlepoint Nook DSP and round two opposite corners with the detailed trio punch. Add this to the card towards the right hand side.

Stamp the sentiment on the white circle and layer onto the berry burst circle, then add this to the card. Pop on a couple of metallic pearls to add a little bling.

I'm a huge fan of quick and simple - but just because it hasn't taken you hours - doesn't mean it can't be beautiful.

Gingham Daisy Aperture Birthday Card

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I hope you are well today, the sunshine seems to have disappeared here in Yorkshire but it's still pleasant. I have the day off work today - I'm waiting in for the carpet fitters! Things are starting to come together now  which is good considering I only have 7 weeks to due date!!!

Anyways, here's my card for today.  I love how fresh and spring like the colours are, in fact it was designed with this weeks Stampin for All challenge in mind. Jill has set us the challenge with the theme 'Spring Flowers'... what do you think???


Measurements:

Highland Heather Cardstock
1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4". scored at 4 1/8"

Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper
1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Whisper White Cardstock
1pc - 3 1/2" x 5 1/4"
Scraps for the sentiment and daisy images.

Take the largest circle from the framelits and place onto the gingham gala DSP and I added a little bit of washi to keep it in place (as below), then ran it through the big shot.



Add snail to the back of the DSP and add to the card front, then line up the same framelit into the cut out area as the image below, and then run it through the big shot again.


Place the whisper white panel on the inside the card. On a scrap piece of whisper white stamp out two daisy images and add the centre to one. Punch these out using the daisy punch and gently curl the petals with your bone folder. Layer up the two images and adhere together, making sure you offset the petals to create a full flower and have the daisy with the stamp centre to the top. Close your card and adhere this in the centre of the circle on the whisper white. 

Open the card and on the whisper white stamp birthday wishes in Highland Heather above the daisy. Make sure you place it far enough up so that it isn't seen when the card is closed.

On another piece of whisper white stamp the sentiment in Highland Heather ink and punch out using the everyday label punch. I thought the sentiment looked a little lost in al the white, so I popped the 
punch out into the trimmer and lined the points edge up with the track and sliced off the excess



Finally, layer this piece on to a full punch out of the everyday label in daffodil delight and stick to the front of the card.
