Cool Kid

Here's a fun, cheery card using the Cool Kid stamp set, you will find it on page 29 of the spring/summer catalogue. It's one of the cards we made in class last Wednesday.

The base card is Night of Navy and measures 5" x 5".
The squares measure...
Whisper White: 1 3/4" x 1 3/4"
Rich Razzleberry: 2" x 2"
Whisper White: 4 3/16" x 4 3/16"

The corners were finished off with some paper piercing - just about shows up in the photos. The bow ties were fussy cut, a little fiddly but easy enough to cut. I emphasised the eyes with my chalk marker, just a light touch needed. Finally, the envelope was made using the envelope punch board - quick and easy :)

Thanks for visiting x

Fine Feathers gift card holder

Hello crafters, I'm back. Happy Bank Holiday Monday.  I love long weekends.  Who doesn't?

My Fine Feathers stamp set has had an airing. The card has a pocket inside to hold a gift card and tag to write your greetings. All stamped with black StazOn on Very Vanilla card.
Fine Feathers gift card holder
The back is made with a 6" x 6" piece of Modern Medley DSP.  Mark at 3" on all four sides and score from 3" mark to adjacent 3" mark so that when you fold the triangles in the points meet in the middle. When folded it measures 4 1/4".  The front of the card is a 4 1/4' x 4 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card. As you can see, one triangle/flap is adhered to the card front.  The other 3 triangles fold in and are held in place with tiny 5mm magnets. You can see both magnets a photo further down - also instructions for the pocket :) ...

For the pocket, cut a 4" square in half diagonally (you will get two pockets from a 4" square). Score on the two short sides at 3/8".  Snip the ends diagonally and fold under as you see in the photo below. Put adhesive on the flaps and adhere to one corner as above, not too close to the folds.
I will take photos and write up instructions for the box envelope later in the week.
Thank you for visiting x
