Folding Card Ideas – 3 Fold Card

By Cards

Hi All,

I’m back with another card idea for you. This one is inspired by a book I received called “Folding Card Ideas (I believe you can find the book on Amazon). Although this  book is jam packed with card ideas & drawings, there are little to no instructions on how to create the cards. So I put together a little card sketch of this one & guide you through the assembly.

Here’s the finished look.

Distress Ink & Paper Piecing Bridal Card

By Cards

Hi all,

Welcome back! I hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of summer.

For today’s card I wanted to try using an alphabet stamp set to create my sentiment. I’m one that almost always chooses to use a sentiment that’s ready to go. I don’t mess around with my stamps by splitting them apart, I like things already assembled and ready to go for me. So as you may guess, this card in particular took quite some time to conceptualize. However, once I had an idea of what I wanted, it came together pretty quickly. I knew I wanted to use the scooter element in a whimsical way, and the rest of the card just fell into place immediately after I had the element figured out.

Here’s the how-to on the card:

Here’s a look at the finished card.

Online Card Class – Day 8

By Cards

Hi all,

Today marks day 8 of the online card class and I”m excited to try the newest technique I have learned. It involves using salt after watercolor/distressing. I used it on the tricolored piece of watercolor paper on my card and am intriqued by the results. I do like the effect, however, I think if I had used darker colors it would have been more dramatic. Anyhow, I think it’s an awesome technique and will keep it in mind for future cards.

Here is my card for day 8
