Thanksgiving Four Flap Fun Fold Card

This is a fun fold that's great for any occasion, but today I'm using it for a Thanksgiving Card. You will be able to show off your beautiful designer series paper with this card and I used - (of course) - the gorgeous Ever Eden dsp! I have a free PDF sheet with supplies and measurements below.

Thanksgiving Four Flap Fun Fold With Edens Garden2

The pumpkin die cuts are from the Detailed Pumpkin Dies.  As you can see, I've layered card stock on gold foil or gold foil on card stock. The pumpkin acts as a latch to hold the card shut.

Here is what the dsp looks like when the card is opened:

And here is a look at the inside sentiment piece:

I've used the "Happy Thanksgiving sentiment from Banner Year stamp set and the beautiful flower from Eden's Garden.  It's stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. 

And then, there's the dsp that's wrapping around the card, and this is what the back looks like:

This is a great way to use up that dsp that we all have lol.

Double Tri-Fold Pop Up Card

This is a wow card with it's double triple panels that showcase beautiful designer series paper. I've used Ever Eden DSP with it's beautiful flecks of gold for this seasonal holiday card. Inspiration for this card is from Dawn Griffeth of Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. 

Here are a couple of cards:

Even though Ever Eden Designer Series Paper isn't officially Christmas or Holiday DSP, it's beautiful to use for Holiday cards.  I've used the Encircled in Warmth stamp set for the lovely sentiments.

Ever eden trifold single card2

As you can see, there's not much room to sign this card, so I added a panel on the back.  It's the same size as the designer series paper for the large panels ( 5 1/4 x 2 3/4").

Here are the measurements for this card:

Card base: thick Basic White -  5 1/2 x 9" scored at 3 and 6"; Small card 3 x 9 scored at 3 and 6"

Shimmery Trees With Evergreen Border Punch

A little extra sparkle is always a good thing! Did you know you can use the White Shimmery Embossing Paste to add texture to card stock? Yep, you can use it to add beautiful sparkle and texture to your cards without using an embossing mask. It's also beautiful as clumps of snow on trees.

Here's a pic of one of the first cards I made.  There are two rows of trees for each color.  The plan card stock is in the back, and the card stock embossed with the Shimmery White Embossing paste is in the front. I was going for an ombre look on the front of this card. (Also, I show you in the video how to line up the card stock in the punch to get a row of trees.)

See the sparkle on the first row of trees?

Here's a pic of cards done in blue:

Same thing on this card.  The trees in each of the first rows were covered with Shimmery White Embossing paste.

And a black, silver and white version:

This card has silver metallic trees in the background in each row.  

Which colors do you prefer?

Card stock for all cards (landscape or portrait) is 4 1/4 x 11" scored at 5 1/5".

Lovely Pocket Card With Christmas Season Bundle

This card is so beautiful and so easy to make - you might want to make a whole bunch once you get started! Inspiration for this card is from a card I saw Rachel Tessman create. Measurements and supplies are listed below.

Here is a picture of the cards:

Christmas season pocket cards2

I love the Evening Evergreen open weave ribbon on this.  

This card is a simpler version:

Christmas season simple pocket card2

A simple ribbon to the side, and no layers of foliage or evergreens - the images are just stamped on.

Here is how the stepped up version looks with the sentient pulled out:

Christmas Season pocket Card inside and out2

The Christmas Season stamp set is one of the Distinktive stamp sets, which means the stamp is made to give the effect of lighter and darker areas on the stamped image.
