Pop Out Swing Card with Ellie's Pumpkin Costume

Happy Saturday!  I'm excited about the new 3D decoupage (paper tole) kits in my shop!  Hazel Braimbridge is now creating these using my digi sets!  Some of the kits also include extra elements not available in my regular digi stamp sets.

Here is my first time trying the paper tole kits.   I used "Ellie's Pumpkin 3d"


These pieces would be super quick and easy to cut with a cutting machine (ie. Cricut, Cameo, Silhouette, Scan n' Cut etc) which I do not have, so I opted to hand cut each piece with scissors. 

When cutting them out, I also put the # by it so I know which order they are meant to be layered. 


Here she is all layered with pop dots!

TIP: 
 it's BEST to go around every piece with a black felt marker (alcohol based) which I could not find my Memento marker, prolly still in a box somewhere!  But here, you can see all the white edges.... the black would just give it a much nicer finished edge.  

Next, I made my card base with the swing out mechanism.... I followed Amanda's tutorial here.
I used textured white cardstock for all the 3d pieces, front layer and clouds, and designer paper for grass and border.  I sponged the front white panel with teal so the clouds would pop :)  I also added dimensional tape to the back of Ellie's Pumpkin Costume for "extra" dimension (like she needed it right?) 


I ♥ this card fold - so cute and different.

I'm normally the type to put out all the dies and add flourishes and flowers, but since the border on front was so thin, and I couldn't have anything hanging over towards the middle opening, or it would get in the way of the swinging panel.... I let the Ellie be the focus :) 

You can find this 3d kit and more at my shop HERE.  This is a brand new category, so check back as we'll be adding more kits in the near future!  :)  


Gift Box-in-a-Card

Just had to try this style of card - fancy folds are my faves, but this one takes the cake.  Of course, you can't fold and stick it in an envelope to mail, but is great to give in person :)  Panda digi set is one I made - you can find it in my shop Here.




Love You 2 Pizzas Gift Card Holder

With my pizza-loving daughter away at college, I made this Pizza gift card holder to send her.  It was easy to make using the envelope punch board and a tutorial I found on Pinterest.  It was a while ago, so I lost the link.  When I find it again, i'll update my post.  ;)
