Fancy Fold

We made a fancy fold card on Tuesday that I had seen demonstrated on Facebook last week by Rhonda Wade.

The butterfly was fussy cut from Botanical Butterfly which is retired.

Use a half sheet of card stock – folded in half for your card.  I used Basic Black for the butterfly card and Early Espresso for the magnolia card.
Open the card and run the top part through the Big Shot with the square framelit die – cutting a window in the front & top of your card.
Cut a 5” x 6” piece of Designer Paper and score it at 2” & 4” – making a tri fold.
Glue down the DSP on the inside of the card on the right side.
Use the square that was cut out of your card and adhere it back in place - only using glue on the right side adhering it to the DSP.
Decorate as you want.
When you pull the banner under the magnolia, the card will open so you can see the DSP inside.

Hope you give this fold a try!

Stitched Label Box

I actually have some cards to share with you today!  I had Stamp Club Tuesday and even though it was a small group, we had fun and make some cute projects.

First off - although we did this one last - was the Stitched Label Box.  I found this on Brenda Quintana's blog and love it so much.  I was hoping not to overwhelm my gals and had all the pieces die cut for them which helped a lot except when I gave them the wrong measurements for scoring!  Luckily, we discovered it early enough that we didn't waste too much paper.  You can die cut all the pieces for the box out of one piece of cardstock if you are mindful about placing the dies on the paper.  You will also need 2 pieces 10 3/8" long.  I used Whisper White Thick Card Stock for my box and the Bird Ballard Designer Paper.  You only need a 1/2" strip of DSP (10 3/8" long) so look through your stash  and pick something that you have just a strip of.  Some of the boxes we made today used the Magnolia Lane Designer Paper.  The stamping on the top of the box is from Good Morning Magnolia.

I hope you will try and make this cute box - it really is not hard!!

Good Morning Magnolia!

I am "leaving on a jet plane" tomorrow and I can't wait!  This will be my final trip to Hawaii.  Ashley and I will return to the mainland on June 17 but until then, there are beaches to be discovered, shrimp to be eaten and shaved ice to be eaten!  I probably will not be updating this blog.  So, I thought I'd leave you with a beautiful card that I made today using the new Good Morning Magnolia stamp and the designer paper that coordinates with the suite!  I love it.

I used my Blends (Flirty Flamingo dark and light, Petal Pink and Old Olive) to color the image and popped it us with dimensionals.  

Everything in this suite is great.  I purchased the bundle that includes some great leaves, flowers, and sentiments to die cut like the "Enjoy Today" that I used on my card.  The dies
