Baseball Jersey with Pop Up

Happy Monday friends!  This one's for the GUYS!  CottageCutz has a new  BASEBALL & GOLF RELEASE    and it's perfect for those masculine cards, (if they like baseball or golf) and the individual dies from this release are currently  30% off !  I wanted to make the front look like a baseball jersey, then when you open the card ~ SURPRISE!  A pop up feature completes the sentiment ☺ ...and here's the inside: HOW I MADE IT: 1.  I cut a piece of thick white cardstock at  4-1/4" x 11" -  then   scored at  5-1/2"  for an A2 card base. 2.  I cut a royal blue cardstock at 5-3/8" x 4"  3.  I cut a blue/white/grey pinstriped card (from an old Paper Pumpkin kit) at 5-1/4" x 3-3/4" 4. I then measured to find the center of that pinstriped card and placed a mark along the top.  I then placed the corner of the largest die from the Nested Rectangles Slimline dies (but you could easily use the squares, rounded rectangles etc.)  onto the top of the card

Mini Slimline Window Card

Hello!  Today I have a window card that's pretty simple to make and uses the new Fresh Fruit stamp set and Mini Slimline Thin Pierced Frame from Divinity Designs.  I also used the Pierced Heart Die for the window. Here's a photo of how it came together.  I first die-cut the heart from the white piece and embossed it (that makes the diecutting more defined)  and stamped the strawberries, then colored them with Copics.  Then I cut my card base from green using the Mini Slimline Card Base die .  Then I placed my white (w/strawberries) piece over the front of green and traced lightly in pencil the inside of the heart.  Then I die-cut the heart from the front of my card base.  Next, I put the heart die back in place over the cut out as well as my card base Die and ran them thru again with the embossing mat.  I then placed another piece of white cardstock inside my card and stamped the strawberries through the heart opening, then I colored with Copics, then die-cut & embossed

Double Z- Fold Golf Card

Happy Monday ~ I hope you all had a craft-astic weekend! I did - got lots of crafting done and today I have a  Double Z-Fold Box Card FORE you! I love a good pun! There's a new  AUGUST RELEASE  at the Scrapping Cottage ! This release is so great for those masculine cards - especially if they like golf or baseball!   And if you want it ALL... you can get the whole release bundle at 50% OFF  for a limited time! Individual dies from this release are 30% off! HOW I MADE IT: 1.  I cut a piece of light blue cardstock at  4-1/4" x 11" - then   scored at 2-3/4" (mountain fold) and 5-1/2" (valley fold) 2.  I cut a green strip (for the front Z) at  2-1/4" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4" (valley fold) and 5-1/2 "(mountain fold)  See photo below. 3.  I used the die pictured below from the Grass Slimline set to cut the top of the green Z strip.  The strip will be a bit longer than the die, so I cut to one of the score lines, then moved the die down
