Make two cards in a snap with the Angle Fold card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy way to create two cards at the same time with the Angle Fold card! With the holiday’s quickly approaching, finding cards that are easy to make and make multiples of, can be a time saver! When it comes to the Angle Fold card, you really have to make two cards at the same time with cutting the DSP and cardstock. When creating today’s card, I stamped, cut, die cut, and punched enough to make two cards.

First start with this design from the Come to Gather DSP for the base layer, you will make your first cut at 4”, turn the DSP to make your second and third cut at 5 ¼”, and you will have a 1 ½” x 4” piece of scrap, cut this in half, which will give you two pieces at ¾” x 4”(This is if you are cutting a new piece of DSP). For the two pieces of DSP measuring 4” x 5 ¼”, you will cut them both diagonally, but in different directions. The reason for this, is that since you are using one design of DSP, but both sides, flipping one side over will not fit the cardstock card base:

The cardstock card base is Crumb Cake cardstock and you will use a full sheet. First you will SCORE in half along the 8 ½” side and the 11” side (4 ¼” and 5 ½”). Then you will have to line the cardstock DIAGONALLY in your trimmer, so that each end (or tip) of the cardstock is lined up in the track, you will have to remove your scoring blade to get the cardstock to fit. I used the new trimmer for this and the trimmer left an “indentation” at each end from pressing the arm down to cut, however, I used my bone folder to burnish the ends flat. Do not burnish the score lines on the cardstock until you place your DSP, one card will open one way and the other will open the other way. I used liquid glue to adhere the DSP, this gave time to adjust the DSP if needed:

For the card front: 

1. I used a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink on the tree trunk stamp, used another sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the edge of the stamp, and stamped this on Whisper White cardstock. I fussy cut the tree trunk out, heat embossed the sentiment in White Emboss Powder, and used the sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the edge of the cardstock. I did this process twice so I would have two of these.

2. I used the Sprig Punch to cut out of Silver Foil Sheet and cut the sprig in half. I did this twice.

3. I used the Crumb Cake Twine to make a bow, one for each card.

4. I used the Silvery Shimmer Metallic ink to stamp the large and small leaves on Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake cardstocks. The leaves are then cut out with the coordinating dies.

5. I used the small leaf die from Beautiful Layers to cut out of Silver Foil Sheets, two for each card. This DSP reminded me of this die:

Since the tree trunk is the center focal point, you only want to adhere one half to the DSP. I adhered the two sprig pieces to the back of the tree trunk and then adhered the lower half to the DSP:

Use two of the leaves to help as a “closure”, but they need to be placed on the opposite side of the tree trunk. I adhered the leaves with a dimensional, so they acted as a tab to fold the tree trunk under:

I used glue dots to adhere the twine bow and the two foil leaves to complete the card front:

For the inside, on a 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink, the small leaf in Silvery Shimmer Metallic ink, adhere one of the leaves, and adhere one of the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

Here are my completed two cards:

Isn’t this a fun card?? I just love it when you can make two cards at once, especially for the holidays!! When you make this card, you just need to keep in mind what you are going to use for tabs, whether it’s circles, ovals, squares, or like I used, leaves.

Fun fold card with Beautiful Promenade!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun fold card with the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and the Perennial Essence DSP! I decided to make this a birthday card with the sentiments from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays! If you missed it, this is a cute stamp set with classic, funny, and a little witty sentiments! Since most of my go-to birthday stamp set have retired, I thought these would be a great staple set to turn any card into a birthday card. 

To start, cut a piece of Petal Pink cardstock at 4 ¼” x 5 ½” for the base layer and then this design from Perennial Essence DSP at 4” x 5 ¼” to layer on top:

For the mini card, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock at 4 ½” x 6 ½”, and scored at 3 ¼”:

For the card front, stamp the outline flower in Blackberry Bliss ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, carefully color around the edges with Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and fill in with Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends (I used a very light touch around the Blackberry Bliss ink, it will bleed with the blends pen), use the leaf die from Beautiful Layers to cut out three in Mossy Meadow cardstock, some Silver Metallic Thread, and a coordinating piece of DSP cut at 1 ½”x 3 ¼” and used the edgelit die from Beautiful Layers:

To assemble the mini card, I first stamped the diamond shape background stamp in Blackberry Bliss ink along the side edges, adhered the leaves to the back of the flower, adhered to the DSP, adhered the metallic thread to the back of the DSP and then adhered this to the mini card front. I then heat embossed the sentiment in Silver Embossing Powder:

I adhered the DSP to the Petal Pink cardstock base and then adhered the mini card to the front:

For the inside, cut at piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 3” x 4 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink and stamp the flower in the corner, colored with Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers:

Isn’t this a fun fold card to make? Perennial Essence DSP is so versatile and I just love it! I really can coordinate with a variety of flower stamps, I would never have thought to combine this stamp set with this DSP!!

Stronger than most with Petal Promenade Suite

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which a beautiful encouragement card made with the Petal Promenade Suite! There may come a time when a friend or loved one may be going through a rough time, and what better way to let them know that you are thinking of them, with some words of encouragement, than sending them a heartfelt card. The Petal Promenade Suite is a beautiful suite and perfect for such occasion!

Start with a base layer in Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then the next layer is this design from the Petal Promenade DSP, cut a 3 ¾” x 5”:

For the rest of the card front, you will use the doily die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies to cut out of Champagne Foil Sheet, stamp the sentiment from Beautiful Promenade stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out with the smallest oval from the Layering Ovals Thinlits Dies, cut out a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock with the smallest scallop oval from the dies to layer the sentiment on, cut out two of the leaves from Beautiful Layers in Mossy Meadow cardstock, and cut enough Very Vanilla Lace Trim and Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon to wrap around the front of the DSP:

Layer the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon on top of the Very Vanilla Lace Trim and adhere the end pieces to the back of the DSP. Then adhere this piece to the Very Vanilla cardstock base layer:

The oval layers are adhered together, the leaves are adhered to the back of this piece, and then this is adhered to the foil doily piece. To adhere the foil doily to the DSP, I cut a dimensional in half, placing one piece at the top and the other on the bottom, and then adhered to the DSP. By doing this, the ribbon will be in between the dimensionals and the foil doily will stay in place and keep the ribbon in place:

This completed piece is then adhered to a Fresh Fig card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” Very Vanilla cardstock, stamped in Fresh Fig ink. I used the background stamp in Fresh Fig ink along the left side and the flowers in the bottom corner are in Fresh Fig and Mossy Meadow inks, which I used a Sponge Dauber to color the stamp:

Isn’t this a beautiful card that was so easy to make?? Card making shouldn’t just be limited to birthdays or holidays, but for any reason to get you creative!

Words of encouragement

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a stunning card featuring the Beautiful Promenade Bundle and the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper! The Petal Promenade DSP was a must on my list from the Annual Catalog and I recently decided to purchase the coordinating stamp set and dies bundle. I was really on the fence for a while about this bundle, but after really looking at all the creativity with it and really seeing the sentiments, I caved in! lol The card I am featuring today is one that I made for someone very special to me because having a beautiful card to express your love and support during a difficult time can mean the world to them.

The card base is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The base layer is from the Petal Promenade DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need enough Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to go around the DSP, Gold Metallic Pearls, use Gold Foil Sheets to cut out the detailed thinlit from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies, and stamp the sentiment from Beautiful Promenade stamp set in Versamark and emboss in Gold Emboss Powder on Petal Pink cardstock, then cutting out with the circle thinlit from the Stitched Labels Thinlits Dies:

The inside sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in Gold Emboss Powder. The hearts along the bottom are from the Stitched Labels Framelits, cut out from Gold Foil Sheet:

This is such a beautiful suite and I am so happy that I decided to purchase the stamp set and coordinating thinlits! Much to my surprise and goes to show you that I was not paying attention when I placed my order, but one of the thinlits actually cuts the DSP so you can layer on the inside of your cards! I always kick myself when I think back on how I missed out on the thinlits SU! sold so you could insert DSP to the inside of your card and even though I figured out a template that works for our envelopes, this was an even bigger win for me! I love to decorate the outside of envelopes and now I can make the inside pretty too!!
