Fun Fold Flying Cards Any Occasion So Fun to Create!!!

 These cards were super easy to make. It's a nice change to get a nontraditional fold card. The papers I used were floral black and white and spring florals. Any printed paper can be used to go with the particular occasion. The cuts and folds are very easy to do. As you unfold the card and look at it from the top it can look like wings or an M because of the folds.

My Gnomey-Sketch & Color Challenge Make One Card

Once again I used the Mini Garden Gnomes Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. These Gnomes are absolutely adorable and make a sweet card.

I used the Irresistibles cardstock to make the rectangles. It comes in 6 patterns and all you do is choose the color then sponge them.

Melon is our Color of the Year and will only be available through July. There are a full array of coordinating items in Melon, like the little flowers I used. Love Them!

I used the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge as the inspiration for the card.



Here's my card:

Two Very Easy Fold Sympathy Cards

 These 2 cards are super easy to make. It's a nice change to get a nontraditional fold card. The papers I used were floral black and white so I decided to make sympathy cards, a sad necessity.



The card on the left is made from a piece of black cardstock cut 4 1/4 x 11. It is scored at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4. I used the lattice card front thin cut to make a white background. I then cut it to 4 x 2 1/2. The inside piece of white cardstock is 5 1/4 x 4. The center square is 4 1/4" (black) and the floral square is 4".

The card on the right is a A2 card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. A 1 1/4 " flap was cut up to the score fold on both sides. After adhering it to the inside of the card, I covered it with 2 pieces of 1 x 4 papers. The floral piece is 4 x 3. 


Supplies:

Value Pack of white cards

Stitched Lattice Background Thin Cut

Intense Black Ink

Cardstock

Patterned Paper

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 514 & Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 537

 This is a card that I created for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #514. I combined the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 537.





I cut the oval using a piece of white daisy cardstock and pick the shape from the Art Philosophy collection from CTMH. I placed it it Design Space for a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card. I stamped the daisies using the Daisy, Daisy Stamp & Thin Cut set and versamark. I poured some embossing powder on the image and heated until the powder melted. I used Grape and Lagoon Ink Pads and dabbers to add ink to the background of the daisies and a stencil to add color to the front of the card. The hummingbird was in my stash and was colored with the Grape and Lagoon and a medium round waterbrush.

 




Supplies:
Grape Ink Pad
