Flashback Friday: Hold Onto Hope

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

With Easter just around the corner I thought I would share a beautiful card that was created by my friend and fellow demonstrator, Peggy.  This was a swap card from our last Spring Stamping Retreat and I do believe it was the winner! Our guests swap and then vote on which of the cards they like best.  My heart is saddened that we had to cancel this Spring Stamping Retreat due to the Corona Virus.

The color pallet for todays card is Pool Party and Bermuda Bay with a touch of white to pull your eye to the focal point … the cross. Peggy layered the cross which creates it beauty and texture.

Peggy created her card using the “Z Fold” technique … so fun and not to hard to do.  I will share one of my Z-Fold cards with you  in the next couple of days along with step by step instructions so you can recreate these cool cards.

There are several different ways to do the Z-Fold and it’s all based on the dimensions of the “Z” that you are using.  Some appear centered on the card front as Peggy’s and some are smaller and are used to add embellishments to the card.

I hope you enjoyed Peggy’s card, it is so pretty and so fitting for this time of year. The Hold onto Hope stamp set and coordinating Cross of Hope Framelits dies are a nice addition to your stamp collection. I purchased mine to go with the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

FYI … I have the name wrong on my picture!! That’s for the framelits … Hold Onto Hope Stamp Set is correct.

Thank you so much for joining me today. Enjoy your day, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
