Pretty Snowman Panel Card

DSCN0053

I think these panel cards are the BOMB!  They are very easy to make too.  Just take a 12 x 5-1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock and fold it in half.  Then fold each side in half again. Use the Decorative Label punch on the bottom of each panel by punching out a little less that half - it makes it look like the bottom of a dresser to me. The Confetti Stars Border punch was used on the top of this swap card.  Cut Basic Black layers for each panel and then a layer to stamp on.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Sure to get a big WOW!

DSCN0054

Hop on over to my blog (AStampAbove.com) and leave a comment in the comment screen (you can see where that is in the photo below - it's at the bottom of all my blog posts) and I'll do a drawing - the winner will get one of these cards in the mail!!!

Fun Fold Pine Cones

DSCN9588

Crisp and clean...not a lot of fuss on the front. The BOOM happens when this card is opened!

DSCN9589

Here's a cool fun fold that I received in a swap - I LOVE Fun folds!  She used the Wonderland stamp set and the Woodland Embossing Folder...DID YOU KNOW that this embossing folder is retiring with our Holiday Mini Catalog -GASP!!!! Not kidding!  It's not going to be in the next catalog - it's going bye bye.

DSCN9590

To make a card like this - you simply cut two card bases and score the inside one at 5-1/2 and then fold each side in half again.  Run it through your Big Shot with the Oval Framelit in the middle to cut out the opening. SUPER EASY RIGHT???

Cardinal Tent Card

DSCN9634

 Here's a pretty and bright swap card I received.  Love the cardinal stamp set called Joyful Season - I love watercolor and this is a GREAT watercolor set. The card is called a tent card - because it makes a lil tent on the bottom. The card base is 4 x 8 folded in half with the circle layers attached to the top front...just something a lil different.

MOOSE for the MAN!

DSCN7132

Here's a fun card that my stampers enjoyed making this month - I LOVE FUN FOLDS!!!  This one is soooo simple!  I'm sad to see the Walk in the Wild and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets RETIRING!!!

The Lost Lagoon base is cut at 5 x 8 - scored at 2, 3, 5 & 6.  The Soft Suede panels are 1-7/8 x 4-7/8 and stamped with Soft Suede ink and the Hardwood Background stamp.  I stamped off the background stamp and added that to the background of the Very Vanilla pieces too.

DSCN7133

 Here is the card spread open...

This is the back of the card - this Very Vanilla panel is also 1-7/8 x 4-7/8.  This is where I will write on my card.

Snowflake Die Card!!!

 

DSCN6018

 I had to share this pretty card with you - I made it for my Technique Tuesday class - and it was so simple!!!  The Snowflake Card Thinlits Die makes this a cinch!  I used Soft Sky cardstock with Soft Sky and Basic Black ink.  The Endless Wishes stamp set is so pretty...love all the little snowflakes and the font on the words.  Combined with some Silver Glimmer paper and silver ribbon and I think I have a winner!

DSCN6027

 I made my card larger than just cutting it with the die.  If you cut your cardstock at 5-3/8 x 8-1/2 - the 5-3/8 will fit inside the framelit perfectly so you can put the right side over the top of the die and not cut that part off.  After running it through the Big Shot - it will actually score that extra piece on the side so you can fold it over and have the right side flap to make your card wider  - TRY IT!!!
