One Basic Fun Fold, Three Different Layouts with the Season of Chic Bundle

I want to share three different cards with you that are based on one fundamental fun fold. There are pictures for each of the cards and a PDF to download with all of the measurements. You can also watch my YouTube video for more details (link below).

One thing I love about the Season of Chic Bundle is that you can use it for all of the seasons.  The Texture Chic Specialty DSP also includes paper for all of the seasons. I'm showing a Fall, Christmas, and Summer card.

The basic fold is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of card stock scored on the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4" and 7"(pictured below).

For the first card, I am layering the front panels with Texture Chic Specialty DSP and also using one large piece to become the left side of the inside of the card.

The inside looks like this:

The second card is a gift card or cocoa pouch holder. It is created similar to the first card, but horizontally and without the large piece of DSP. Again, find the links to the PDF and video tutorial below.

The third card uses the same base for a z-fold card:

Three Fall Flower Garden Cards

When we think of Fall, we think of pumpkins, gourds and squash, but there are beautiful Fall flowers too!

I created three lovely cards with that in mind that feature Echinacea, Ranunculus and Mums (or daisies) - all beautiful flowers that are glorious in Fall array.

Each card features something unique and different.

On the Ranunculas card I used the Water Color Pencils and then blended the colors together with the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Early Espresso Card Base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" and die cut with long Contour Scallop die on end (about 3/4" in).

Gingham Cottage DSP – 3 x 5 ½”; 1 ¾ x 5 ½”(inside)

Crumb Cake for Die Cut Scalloped Rectangle

Very Vanilla – 2 5/8 x 3 7/8 for front stamped piece; 2 ¼ x 5 ½” for inside sentiment piece.

The card below features a flower bouquet and foliage from the Harvest Dies with the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome. I also die water colored the flowers with our Water Color Pencils and the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Make a Kraft Gift Box into a Shaker Box!

Did you know Stampin' Up's Kraft Gift Boxes are in the weekly sale this week? Not only are these boxes sturdy, but they have a beautiful window in them. You can easily turn them into an even more beautiful gift box by making them a shaker gift box! I will show you how.

Here is a picture of the one I made tonight in my live:

Kraft gift box wreath shaker background2

I began by sponging the front with Soft Suede to give it a rustic look. I also did that on this one featuring the Christmas Tree dies from the Christmas Lights Bundle:

Kraft gift box tree shaker2

This is the first one I made with sponging  but no background dsp:

And this gift box has the lovely Specialty Vellum in the background.  The beautiful snowflake is die cut using the snowflake die from Twinkling Lights Dies with the Rose paper from the Gold & Rose Metallic Specialty Paper.

When you make this you need a piece of Kraft card stock that is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" and a piece of background paper that is the same size - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4".
