Club LLLC May Kit

This month's club kit contains both a Marci and Luka and has a formal theme!   For my first card, I tried a Theater Fold Card with the happy couple inside.  The fancy frame Dies on the front and the chandelier on the inside are part of this month's club kit, along with Marci and Luka! It's hard to see, but I stenciled some sun rays behind the chandelier for ambiance ☺ I did not use a die to cut my opening as they weren't large enough - I used my paper trimmer for both the red opening and the gold frame.   I followed Sam's tutorial HERE except I didn't include the 2 middle strips. I skipped the part between 4:30 - 10:15. (3) pieces of 5" x 7" red cardstock - glued 2 of them back to back for card front the other will be for the back of card. (2) pieces that are 4-7/8" x 7" for the sides.  - score each of those at 1-1/4" and 3-1/2" (2) pieces that are 1/2" x 6" LLLC PRODUCTS: May Club Kit Rain and Shine Stencil Set Magical

Umbrella Shaker Card

Hello - I hope you're having a good weekend so far!  I had some crafty time to make an extra card with some of the new products from the April Release at  La-La Land Crafts that I haven't used yet!  I made this umbrella shaker card featuring the Showers of Joy clear stamp set , the Umbrella Die , and the Rain and Shine stencil.   The grass and clouds are actually part of the Forest Die - all in one!  How cool is that?!   I was really tempted to also make this Forest Die into a 3D card, but I figured the shaker was the wow factor on this one, so I glued my layers of the Forest Die together. ☺  For the back layer of the umbrella, I stenciled some flowers from the Floral Beauty Stencil Set.   and here is the inside.  The hippo is also from the Showers of Joy clear stamp set.   And the sun up there is covering up an OOPSIE ink splotch.  PRODUCTS : Showers of Joy Clear Stamp Set Forest Die Spring Blossoms Small Die Stitched Ribbons Die Stitched Sun and Clouds Die Rain and Shine S
