Keep opening until Reveal!

Hey Guys!

We do the best we can. How are you holding up? I am working on it, I am doing videos every week, and there is one for this card! You can go to YouTube and check it out! Having ups and downs are normal right? Being a normally happy person, I try very hard to not let the World get me down. Making this card made my very happy! I even had my friend over and we made it together! This card is fun because it has a lot to see, you open it and keep on opening for the final reveal!

Triple Fold card closed
One flap back, see how I had these two pieces of DSP meet in the middle?
Triple Fold all the way open!

The Dies for this Suite are really fun! The World Globe can be wherever you live! And cutting it out of Brass Foil is the best! The Brass Foil is so pretty, it seems like it is brighter and deeper in color than the Gold Foil. Don’t get me wrong I still love the Gold Foil but this one is a keeper for sure!

Didn’t it come together well? As I said, techniques have always inspired me and helped to make my stamping even more fun! Look through your stamps and see if any image has this basic shape and see what you come up with! If you didn’t catch this technique, go check it out!

Who doesn’t love a Palm Tree!?

Hey Guys,

First off, I want to thank you for sticking with me. I haven’t always been consistent with my blogging, but I HAVE been consistent with my classes. If you would like to do any of my classes let me know, I love to make cards and decorations and would love to have you join me!

Second, the card I am going to show you today is one that I somewhat cased (which means that I saw a card, loved it but changed it up just a little), this one was inspired by Michele Zindorf. She is very awesome but not everyone can do what she does, so I try to bring it down to what I would hope with some guidance anyone can do! Here is her card:

My card is one that fits in a regular envelope, that was my main objective……make this card, but have it fit into an envelope I have.

What I love about her card is that you really get to see the basket weave background, since I had to make mine smaller you get a hint of that!

Here is my card:

Not sure if I have told you this in the past, but my husband has a virtual tropical paradise in our yards, here in North Carolina! I grew up in SoCal, we and go to Disney World all the time and we both love how tropical it is. So, of course I naturally gravitate towards tropical stamps…..this one REALLY called to me! I hope you love how this came out as much as I do!

Here is the inside of this card:
