Today is a great Fold card with a little interesting window. It makes such a fun addition. And I have a video to share some tips when you create it.

I have used the Irresistible Blooms Bundle and Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper.

This is the card.

Don’t you just love that “dotty” strip. It’s so cool!

And for the inside of the card.

Just a tip with this paper. The Paper colours include Pretty Peacock and Lost Lagoon. These were current as In Colors a few years back.

Why have they included these now???

Well they are coming back. Yes! They will be part of the Regular Colour Collections starting in the new catalogue in May.

Watch out! It looks like a little Colour Refresh is happening. More on that in the coming weeks. It will be all revealed on the 29th March.

I share a tip in this video. If you don’t have the those colours as yet. I found using the Evening Evergreen and stamping off one time. It matched so close. But Evening Evergreen will be going at the end of this current catalogue. It’s a good short term fix for now.

So watch the video below. (If you are catching this in an email post and the video doesn’t show, head to my blog directly Or head to my Youtube Channel (HERE) and view the video there.

If you haven’t subscribed already to my Youtube Channel I would love for you to. You will keep up with all those crafty videos that you can go back to anytime. Thanks for that.

I have had more fun playing with the Around the Bend Bundle. I’m loving these stamps and dies.

Today’s project comes with a video with 9+ Tips in using this bundle when putting together this card.

The paper is the gorgeous Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper available for Sale-A-Bration. I love the pretty prints in this paper and I think it works so well.

Here is the card.

You can watch the video below especially look out for the 9+ Tips in using the dies and lining them up with the Stamps. I think you will find that helpful in putting the card together.

You have probably seen the Fitting Florets Suite around now. It is all so gorgeous. I had to play with it. And I pulled out an old fold that I haven’t done in a while – A Panel Fold Card.

Today’s video is a fun card I think. It’s a Pocket Front card.

It’s a standard size card and with a little folding and scoring creates a pocket in the front. Just the size for a tea bag, Gift Card or even a small chocolate.

I have a video to show you how to make it but also have the measurements below for you so you can recreate your own.

Here is the card for you. We have some different angles so you get an idea of it.

I used the Tea Boutique Collection for this card. Quite an appropriate one to include a Tea Bag in the pocket.

Below is the view from the front with the card standing up. It can stand well just on the point.

Lying flat.

Inside. I added a piece of white card so there is room to write.

Check the video out below.

The original idea came from Splitcoaststampers website -> HERE.


Follow along with the video to see the scoring and folding of the card.

Base card 14.8cm x 21cm Score on the long side at 10.5cm

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Score on the long side at 4 1/4″

On the long side place the left hand edge at the 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ point on the Paper Trimmer. Mark in pencil at the little channel on the Trimmer. Alternatively use a ruler to measure in 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ from the left hand edge and mark the point.

Turn card clockwise 1/4 turn. Mark halfway on this side which will be 7.4cm or 2 3/4″.

Score an angled line from the centre mark on the short side to the mark on the long side. Repeat the angled line from the centre to the mark on the other long side.

Fold on the score lines and fold in at the angles. Adhere to 2 angled folds down with tape.

Cut Designer Series Paper to 10cm x 10cm 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.

Cut the piece at an angle from one corner to the other. Keep one triangle as a large piece. Cut the other triangle in 2 to have 2 half triangles.

Adhere the large piece to the front of the card.

White card for inside measures 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.

Adhere the 2 smaller triangles on each of the bottom corners. Adhere the white card inside the base card.

Decorate as you wish to.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know how you go.
