Triple Fold Fun Birthday Card

Today’s my birthday so I thought it would be appropriate to steer away from the Thanksgiving and Fall-themed cards and celebrate on my blog!

Sketched Birthday Triple Fold Fun Card A

Sketched Birthday Triple Fold Fun Card B

 

Sketched Birthday Triple Fold Fun Card C

This card my stampers created a few month back at a Technique Tuesday class.  The technique is Triple Fold Fun – and it is truly a unique and fun card style.

Here are the instructions for the card:

Supplies

Scoring Tool or Simply Scoring Board

2-1/2” Circle Punch/Large Scallop Punch

Card Stock  – 11” x 4-1/4”

4” x 4” Designer Series Paper

4” x 4” Neutral Card Stock

Stamps/Inkpads

Stampin’ Dimensionals

Score 11” x 4-1/4” piece of card stock at 4”1/4” and 8-1/2”.

Big Shot/Embossing Folder (optional)

Latch Piece-cupcake, butterfly, or other?

 

  • Fold at score lines.  If you are going to emboss top section, do so at this point.  Be careful WHAT SIDE you emboss!
  •  Center the 2-1/2” circle punch over 4-1/4” score line – about ½” from the edge.  Punch out a circle (use it on another project).
  •  Punch scallop in matching color.  Stamp or embellish this focal point.  Adhere it ONLY on the bottom so it can peek out of the hole left by the circle punch out.
  •  Adhere DSP on front section and stamp or punch out a latch piece.
  • Important to pop the latch piece up with a dimensional on the bottom/center– leaving top section with NO adhesive so it can hold down but also let go of the top piece.

World Card-Making Day Art Palette Punch Art Card

If you’d ask me what kind of cards I like to make most, I’d have to say PUNCH CARDS.  I adore the creativity and resourcefulness it takes to use items in different ways.

My sister is a grade-school teacher, and her mantra in her classroom is COLOR, COLOR, COLOR.  I offered to make her birthday cards for her students this year, and this is what I came up with:

 

Art Palette Punch Card - MJ

She loved the cards.   I hope you like this one too!  It is really a very simple card using the 3″ circle die and the 3/4″ circle punch – but you can easily change the size of the palette to 2-1/2″ circle punch and a smaller punch (1/2″) for the paint drops.  The paintbrush is made with the word window punch and the retired build-a-blossom punch.  The notch is made with the wide oval punch.

My next post will include a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

Up, Up, and Away!

Welcome!  This weekend I am featuring two items from the Occasions Mini Catalog – the Create a Cupcake stamp set and the Build a Cupcake Punch!  I have made many cupcake projects with these two items – but I love creating out-of-the-box samples!  Here are two items I showcased at a workshop I did last night – a birthday card and a 6 x 6 scrapbook page.

Create a Cupcake Hot Air Balloon Card

Create a Cupcake Hot Air Balloon Scrapbook Page

To make the hot air balloon, I used Real Red textured cardstock, So Saffron cardstock, hemp, crimper, Build a Cupcake punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, Small Heart punch, crimper, and Stampin' Dimensionals.  Be sure to place the Stampin' Dimensionals on top of the hemp – it helps secure them!  The "clouds" are made from the frosting section of the Build a Cupcake punch and sponged with Marina Mist ink.  On the scrapbook page, I distress the edges of the photo section with our distressing tool.
