D2D - Caring Kaela Stand Up Card

Happy Friday!!  Today was the last day of school before Spring Break for the kids.   I picked up my mom and we went to the Talent Show at the Middle School for the last hour and a half.  My older daughter Carly sang in it and was fabulous!  She was so nervous though understandably!   She had me get up early today to curl her hair in ringlets and it turned out so cute.  Here’s a pic I snapped just before school today.  

So my card today showcases the cute new digi set called “Caring Kaela” by Designed 2 Delight!   I first saw this card by Lorraine so I searched SCS forums and found instructions for this Stand Up card and thought I’d try it!  This fun set comes with so many images, with or w/o a smile, butteflies or w/o, tulips, scenes or individual!  So I used my picket fence punch and grass die to create this cute li’l scene.  Whaddaya think??    

Here’s the pattern I followed.  It’s sooo SIMPLE too!  (click the pick to enlarge for detail).  

1)  Cut your cardstock to 12” x 5.5” and score horizontally at 2”, 4”, 8”, and 10” 
2)  On the 2 outside ends, measure down 3” from the top and make a pencil mark.  Then using your cutter, make a diagonal cut from that mark to the TOP of your 4” score.  Discard that cut-off triangle.  
3)  Then just fold and decorate!!  Easy Peasy!!  SCS also has a gallery of these if you’d like more inspiration! 

Here are a couple more photos so you can get a better idea of what it looks like. 

Have a creative day... Ink Something!!

Double Layered Cube Card

Ok y'all, those who know me know I love a card challenge - especially fancy folds!  So when I saw this gorgeous card of Lavonne Schwendeman's I had to try it.  And as impressive as this style of card is, I prolly won't make another of these for a long while as it took me quite a long time to make.  But it was worth it for my daughter who's birthday is in a couple of weeks!  Maybe I'll make a (fall/winter) one for my other daughter who's birthday is next May, LOL!     I love how the sentiment and larger butterflies actually POP OUT away from the card base!   Here's a view from the top-ish.... The "Lovely Wishes" foam words are pink foiled on the front and are shiney when the light hits.  They are attached to clear window sheets that are then glued to the cardstock in front of them.   The flourishes were pretty flimsy, so I cut out 3 of each and glued together to make them more sturdy. Each size of butterfly is embossed with a different texture - th

Tutorial - Darling Donkeys Double Z-fold Wiper Card with Barn Doors

While creating another wiper card, this time with grey 'Buffalo Check' and barn doors, I thought, why don't I make the doors open to reveal 2 more donkeys?!  Bare with me, I'm no pro on tutorials 😉 but you can find all the measurements & written instructions below  The folded card size is standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"  When you pull on both ends of the card, a donkey pops up When you turn the arrows, the doors open to reveal 2 more donkeys and a message! Tutorial *Please note I am not the original creator of the wiper card.  I am sharing what I've learned, along with my own instructions of how I created the barn doors.  Please leave me comments if you try this!  :) 1.  Cut one piece of Smokey Slate cardstock (or color of your choice) at 8 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches, and score  at 5 1/2 inches and 7 inches 2.  Cut one piece of thick white cardstock (thicker is better for this piece) at 8 1/2 inches x 2 3/4 inches, and score  at 1 1/2 inches and 3 inches 3. 

Tutorial - Box Cards W/O Dies

 Hello again!  I'm back with 2 more box cards using some brand new stamps and dies from the upcoming SU! Holiday mini catalog & SAB and a tutorial on how you can make these without using special dies! First I'll show you a card that uses special dies that make it super quick & easy to create the basic box base to showcase all your fun images, and then I will show you how you can make a very similar card without using the dies.  This is a fun new stamp set featured in the upcoming SU! Holiday Mini Catalog called "Penguin Place" - I bought the bundle, so it has a punch that goes with it to punch out the sitting/standing penguin outline, the white inner piece, and the feet.  I had to fussy cut the trees, gifts, hats & scarves and the sliding penguin.  This is one set I wish they had made a die set to match for all those smaller pieces.   The Box base is created with dies by  My Favorite Things  called " Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics ".  My

Barn Shaped Double Z-Fold Wiper Card with Darling Donkeys

 I guess you could say I'm on a roll with these ' Darling Donkeys ' from Stampin' Up! this week.  I wanted to take the double z-fold wiper card to the next level and I think I managed that by adding a barn shape for the background... and throwing in a bale of hay and some cute chicks for a Birthday-themed card.  What do ya think? Here it is with the wiper popped up... and here it is when the doors are opened up... and here it is all closed up.   The dimensions closed is 5 1/2 inches square, so would easily fit into a 6" square envelope.   Here are the measurements if you are using a board that measures from right to left. and here are the measurements if you are using the large grey scoreboard type that measures lt to rt I did add score lines all throughout the red "wood" to give added texture.  I think it looked kinda plain when all closed up.   You can find a video tutorial for my previous barn door card here .  Although it does not have the barn shape
