Traditional Dutch Fold Card Tutorial

| Dutch Fold Card, greeting card, paper craft, Tutorial

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share & tutorial is a Traditional Dutch Fold Card. This is a super easy and super quick way to make a Dutch Fold Card. You can whip up the base and then get right to the embellishing!

For this card you only need 3 pieces of card stock for the base and there is very little cutting or measuring!

The paper collection I used for this card is Tea Party and it was a Michael’s Hot Buy a year or so ago. My base is made out of kraft cardstock and I used a Martha Stewart lace edge punch on my edges.

I fussy cut out a birdcage from the collection, added tulle, twine and flowers. I added stickles to the flower edges for a bit of sparkle.

Here is the tutorial so you can make your own:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is an explosion box. I know, you probably already know how much I love explosion boxes! 

I think they are so fun and such a great way to say Happy Birthday Day, Congratulations or in this case thank someone for their service.

There are just so many places to add pictures, thoughts of fun or inspirational memories and add special touches for the special person you give it to.

The paper I used was the Jackson paper pack from CTMH. It is such great paper and went great with my little easel in the center.

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is my Design Team Project for Craft Your Passion. 

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments Design & the image I used was Your The Best.

 I made a paper bag card and it is 4 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches. There is a ton of room inside for goodies and a sentiment.

I colored up the image with my Spectrum Noir markers and layered it on a yellow rosette. I added some sequins and a lace bow for embellishment.

Mother’s Day Cards with La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit

| CTMH, greeting card, La Vie En Rose, mother's day, Z-card

Hi Everyone,

Today’s project share are two Mother’s Day cards that I created with the La Vie En Rose Scrapbooking Kit. The stamp I used was My Mother.

I really love this scrabooking kit. The paper is gorgeous and very versatile plus it comes with a bunch of goodies.

My first card is a Z card and is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches when closed and a full 15 inches when open. 

I used the “Mum” my Mother Stamp but there is also a “Mom” stamp as well. I added some La Vie En Rose Flair on the front as well as a little black with gold ribbon.

The side of the card shows how dimensional it is and because it folds up so nicely and flat it is easy to mail. 
 
I added a stamped message on the inside but there is additional space on the inside for a special message or even to add a picture.

The second card I created is an A2 size card (4 in x 5 1/2).

This time on the front I created a bit of interest by using the designer paper in a different way by matting each strip. I also added the little gold hearts that are so cute.

I left the inside blank on this card so there is lots of room for a special message. 

I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!
