Share a Milkshake Fun Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share the card that I demonstrated on during my Facebook LIVE last night: My Share a Milkshake Fun Fold Card. Sorry I couldn’t get the video to download, but you can view it HERE on my Facebook page. It will be much easier and quicker to understand how the card is created, plus I shared some tips as well.

So you know I’m highlighting the Share a Milkshake, the Designer Paper comes from our Sale-a-bration catalog!! The Dandy Designs has 48 – 12″ x 12″ sheets in the yummiest colors: Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green (what I used for my card base) Mango Melody and Petal Pink.

Let me show you the “closed” view … If you watched my LIVE last night, you will see a few changes!

Boy … that mint ice cream with hot fudge really does look delicious! And, I added the cherry on top and a greeting which I stamped in hot fudge, OH … I mean Early Espresso. The greeting comes from the Charming Sentiments bundle.

The vellum cardstock was cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies, a great staple to have in your stash because it has circles … squares … and banners for your greetings. I popped up the greeting and the ice cream with the small stamping dimensionals.

Ok … now lets get to the FUN in this fun fold. The card base is 8-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ then scored at 2-3/4″. The “z” part of our Fun Fold that gets attached to the front measures 9″ x 3″ and scored at 3″ and 6″. The striped designer paper measures 4″ x 2-1/2″. The two pieces for the “z” measure 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.

Now … isn’t that fun!? The front flap opens to the left but the “Z” folds over the top of that! You really need to head over to my Facebook page and check out the video HERE. The “sweet” sentiment on the inside comes from the Share a Milkshake bundle… Don’t you think those two fonts look nice together? Almost like they were made to be paired up … like the cherry on top!!

Thank you for stopping by and sharing a your time with me … Hope you enjoyed the Ice Cream!

Have a great day ~

Wednesday Wow … Two Cute Cards!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have two super cute cards to share with you today … Both from suites that I purchased from the Mini Catalog (retiring soon) because I just had to have them. With all my grands and greats they are just what my stampin’ stash needed … something for kids! Please not these cards were created by my stampin’ sisters from the Design Team I am on.

First up the amazing Santa’s Express ….

The adorable back ground comes from the Santa Express Designer paper … as does Santa! He was cut out using the coordinating dies. He is popped up on a layer Petal Pink and Evening Evergreen die cut from the Layering Circle dies.

The greeting comes from the Jingle Jingle Jingle stamp set (also in the mini pg.26) Stamp “tis the season to” with Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White layer masking off the word “be” with a post it note. Stamp the outline of “Believe” with Poppy Parade and the inside with Petal Pink.

Now this next card is for my Gnomies ….

Our second cute card was created with the Kindest Gnomes and Christmas to Remember stamp sets. The multi pattern designer paper makes for a fun background and comes from the Storybook Gnomes Designer paper.

Cut the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies in Basic White cardstock and stamp the sentiment in Poppy Parade ink. The gnome is stamped in Memento ink and is colored using Stampin’ Blends then cut out.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out these little cuties … Don’t forget to LIKE my blog is you liked these cards as much as I did.

Have a great day ~

Here are the main supplies used to create these cards …. If the designer papers do not show, it’s because they have SOLD OUT already.
