PIERCED BLOOMS CARD IN A BOX!

I forgot to show you this project.

A couple of months ago it was my Mum’s birthday. Yes a couple of months ago! We recently had to move her in to an aged card home. I didn’t know what to get her but I wanted to make a special card for her to sit on her windowsill. I thought a Card in a Box would be good.

I used the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with the Misty Moonlight print. Blue is her favourite colour so couldn’t miss that one. I used the Pierced Blooms Dies to create an array of flowers.

This shows it folded flat.

I have made a number of these Card In A Box type cards over the years. Click on the ‘tag’ Card in a Box and you will see them. If you want a tutorial for this version you can head -> HERE. I can’t remember now if this is the one I used. This one is in Metric.

Sadly with the restrictions (which are still going …) I couldn’t see her for her birthday but I delivered it to her home. I think she liked it. I enjoyed making it for her.

Hope you have a great week.

POCKET CONCERTINA BOOKLET WITH YOU’RE A PEACH PAPER!

Yesterday I shared the Concertina Card that I made for my daughter’s 21st. Today I wanted to share with you this special little booklet I made. Of course using the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.

It was just a little booklet with some inspirational sentiments for her.

It’s small in size and tied up with some Pale Papaya ribbon. The peach is cut from the You’re A Peach paper.

When you open it there is a little concertina piece. I have held it down here in the photo with the Bone Folder so I could take the photo.

Folding out the strip of card there is a special sentiment on each section. I used a number of different stamp sets for the sentiments and for the images.

This was really fun to create (and made from the heart to my gorgeous girl).

I will share the dimensions for it another time. I only have them in metric at the moment.

Hope you like it.

Hope your week is going ok wherever you are in the world. Thanks for visiting me and take care.

CREATE A PINWHEEL TOWER CARD + VIDEO!

For our Friday Flicks today I show you how to create a Pinwheel Tower Card.

You might have seen these around. I have been fascinated with them and wanted to have a go. They are so easy – and they look so cool. You will want to try one yourself.

I have used the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle.

Here are each of the other panels.

It can easily fold flat. This particular size is too large for a standard envelope but you can create your own OR cut the panels 2cm (3/4″) thinner and it should work.

I have the video below for you or it is now on Youtube to view. I give the measurements for them in Metric and Imperial but don’t stress I have the measurements below.

PINWHEEL TOWER CARD MEASUREMENTS

There are a number of versions around. This one was based on Karen’s card -> HERE.

Tower Base – 17cm x 14.8cm 7″ x 6″ Scored at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm (1″, 2″, 3″, 4″)

Panels – 3 @ 7cm x 14.8cm 3″ x 6″

Designer Series Paper Pieces – 4 @ 14.4cm x 6.6cm 5 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

– 4 @ 14.4cm x 4.1cm 5 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

Hope you get to make one yourself.

The Tidings of Christmas paper is one that is reduced at the moment in the Paper Sale. This finishes on Monday. So not long to save 15% on it.

You can find it in my store -> HERE.

Have a great day,

Jenny

SINGLE STEP CARD WITH BUTTERFLY BRILLIANCE + VIDEO!

Today’s Friday Flicks is a Fun Fold creating a Single Step card. I couldn’t help but use the new Butterfly Brilliance bundle – Oh! and the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper.

I have made this fold before quite some time ago. It is still re-pinned so many times on Pinterest and many people head back to my blog to see it. I thought it would be good to freshen it up. You can see the original card -> HERE.

Check out the card. It is a bit hard to capture it in photos. It folds up easily to mail too.

HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK POP OUT SWING CARD + VIDEO!

Friday Flicks. I have a fun card for you in today’s video. This video is a replay from my Facebook Live on Wednesday. I created a Pop Out Swing Card with the Hey Birthday Chick Bundle. I have made a few of these over the years and I love making them. It has been a while so thought I would pull it out again and freshen it up.

Here is the card for you first.

Hey Chick Pop Out Swing Card _ Inside

Check it out on the video. (If you are receiving this via email then the video may not show. Head to the blog post by clicking on the title above or head to Youtube).

It is now also uploaded to Youtube -> HERE. (Have you subscribed to my Youtube channel yet. I’m shooting for 200 subscribers by the end of the month so head on over there) 🙂

MAKE YOUR OWN POP OUT SWING CARD

The video will show you the details. I will give you general details and measurements below.

Base card is a standard size card. Designer Series paper is 4mm (1/8″) smaller. I used the Balmy Blue pattern in the Subtles pack New demonstrators receive free in Sale-A-Bration. (They will receive a pack from each Colour Collection. 200 6″x6″ in total valued at $100)

I used the Layering Squares Dies for the window cut-out. You can use a circle or rectangle also if you wish.

The inside White card measures. 15.2cm x 12.8cm (6″ x 5″). Score at 5cm and 10cm. (2″ and 4″). Adhere to the inside of the card with the white card in the folded position. ONLY place adhesive on the back of the right hand section. Centre it inside the card to the right and at the top and bottom. Close up the card and adhere the square panel in through the window to adhere to the white bi-folded card. Only place adhesive on the back on the right hand section.

Check out the Hey Chick or the Hey Birthday Chick Bundles. They both have the cute chicks and dies that co-ordinate with each one.
