Card Fold Ideas….

These cards were made for specific people but show a range of card fold ideas. The first card is made by a lovely crafty friend Anne for a special young lady. Anne’s card inspired me to use the same topper on two of these cards.

Anne's card - gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration Anne!

 I love these Debbi Moore Designs.

Below I have made 10 card designs to give you an idea of what you can create with these packs.

I will put a list of the products I used below when I get a moment. All products can be found on our store.  http://www.cardandscrapbookingsupplies.co.nz/

Centre Step and Side Cards using the new Card Topper Pack – Love and Hope

I love these new Toppers. You don’t have to do much with them to make a quick and easy card. Add a bit of bling, some ribbon, flowers, whatever you have in your craft cupboard and you have a beautiful elegant card.

I decided to make my favourite style card (at the moment), the Centre Step and created the following. Then I made an easle card with one of the other Toppers and that took hardly any time at all. (Below)

Card ideas using some new products

I have had a run of birthdays and it seemed the perfect opportunity to try out some of the new products recently listed on my store.
 
I love the new Whimsy Stamps and Dies and also the Graphic 45 – A Ladies Diary papers – useful for scrapbookers and card makers.
 So rather than reading heaps – just take a look. I have listed the products I used below each card – 5 cards in all.

La Creme Mat Stack papers used on the 2nd card

http://www.cardandscrapbookingsupplies.co.nz/index.php?cPath=103_162

The paper used to matt the photo and down the side pieces and also the lace border along the front on the 1st card are from a K & Co pack I had in my personal stash. I cut the lace border from a Fiskars Lace Border Punch.

The Centre Step card design instructions came from Splitcoast Stampers. The Fundamentals card I used is the exact size needed for this card – no trimming to size required.

The Dress Form Die also has a stamp image listed on my site as well. This is the correct size to fit within this Dress Form. Next time I use it this way I will cut the dress seperately so that the top and the feet of the Die are in a different colour – then the dress will just be – a dress on the Dress Form!!!

The Notables Dies have a range of stamps that fit within the border of the dies. I should have used one here as there was a perfect one to fit the card but I ran out of time before meeting my SIL for lunch to give her the card – next time!!

 

Whimsy Stamps Dress Form Die, Pre Embossed cards and more!

For this card I used a Pre Embossed Fundamentals Square card, Pink Flat Back Pearls, (some ribbon, Hunkydory background paper from my personal stash) and a Peel Off and of course the Dress Form Die from Whimsy Stamps
 
Pre Embossed Cards – Flourish Design but also sell mixed pack of the 5 designs.
 
Pink Pearls 
 
The Dress Form Die and Peel Offs have links from the previous list.
 

Side Step Card - more info below!

 
This side step card also instructions from Splitcoast Stampers was made for my great aunt who was turning 96. A  very special lady who loves flowers and handmade cards.

Butterfly by Whimsy Staps and designed by Rainbow Echo Designs

 Chromatics Cardstock for the card base

http://www.cardandscrapbookingsupplies.co.nz/index.php?cPath=45_60

I also used some Hunkydory background cardstock for the layer and an oval nesting die to cut the sentiment oval and the oval behind the flower – these are both from my personal stash and tool box.

 

Whimsy Stamps Butterfly Die and Hunkydory coming together!!

 

Another Centre Step card – a favourite card style at the moment. You know how you go through phases – this is one of mine!!

 
The background card and the picture were from a Hunkydory pack I had purchased some time ago. Many of the Hunkydory card Toppers listed on my site have background cardstock in the packets.
The Peel Off down the side is new and found in the Peel Off category listed above.
The flatback pearls are also listed above.
And of course I couldn’t resist that beautiful butterfly (layered up twice) from Whimsy stamps again.
