This week’s Stampin’ Sunday video will show you how to make a tag closure card. I learned this card fold from another demonstrator, Laurel, at one of our recent demonstrator meetings. It takes a few steps, but it’s easier than you might think!

You’ll need:

Cardbase: 8.5 x 5.5”
Cardstock panel: 2-3/8 x 5.25″
DSP: 2-1/8 x 5”
Cardstock panel: 4 x 5.25
White insert: 3.75 x 5″

Happy Stampin’!

This week I’m participating again with the crafting blog hop, “As You See It” Challenge. These weekly challenges are meant to inspire creativity and encourage participants to interpret the theme as they wish. Anyone is welcome to participate!

This week’s theme is “Fragile Flames”, named for the colour scheme of Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, and Mango Melody.  I decided to experiment with a technique I just recently learned, using a baby wipe and ink refills to pull colour across the cardstock (watch for an upcoming blog post on how to do this technique!).

I used the Stitched All Around stamp set for the sentiment, and the co-ordinating Stitched Labels dies for the little hearts. It’s a little hard to see in the photo above, but the black layer is also embossed with the stitched detail dies from the same set, to add texture.

 

I hope you enjoyed my project! Don’t forget to click on the image below so you can visit the other blogs and see their projects using this same colour scheme. If you like my project, you can see the products I used in the shopping list at the bottom of the post.

If you’re interested in playing along next time, visit the Facebook page or the blog for the As You See It Challenge and get inspired!

Happy Stampin’!

The Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is one of the most gorgeous papers in the catalogue, and this fold is the perfect way to showcase it as you can use three different paper designs on your card!

The cardbase for this fancy fold (Double Dutch Door) is made of two pieces of Early Espresso cardstock. The long strip is scored in two places (8.5 x 2”, scored at 2-1/8” from each end), so that the two ends will fold around the front of your card. The larger piece is scored once (9 x 4-3/16”, scored at 5.5”), for the panel to fold down in front.

Here are the rest of the measurements:

Petal Pink cardstock:
2 x 1-7/8” (2)
5-3/8 x 4-1/16” (inside card)
4-1/16 x 3-3/8”

DSP:
1-7/8 x 1.75” (2)
3-15/16 x 3.25”

White insert:
5.25 x 3-15/16”

Attach Petal Pink cardstock to large upper panel. Attach cardstock to two lower panels. Add DSP pieces to these three panels.

Apply adhesive to the middle panel of your long thin strip of Early Espresso, and attach to the back of your card. Layer white cardstock and Petal Pink cardstock and put on the inside of the card. Stamp white cardstock if desired.

Stamp large magnolia stamp in Memento Black ink on white cardstock and colour with Blends. Cut out with Magnolia Memory dies.

Use Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut shapes from DSP and Mossy Meadow cardstock.

Layer behind magnolia and add to card. When attaching to card, be careful to put adhesive only on the top half.

If desired, stamp a second magnolia and fussy cut out only the centre. Use your bone folder to curl the petals, and embellish with pearls if you wish!

Add this layer to your flower for extra dimension.

Happy Stampin’!
