Tri Fold Card Idea feat. Stampin’ UP! Floral Frames

By Wendy | September 17, 2018 | 0 Comments

I have a fun Tri Fold card idea for you today!  With a bonus feature of a window on the front of the card. A little different than most of the tri fold card ideas I’ve seen out there.  This one folds from the top and the bottom versus side to side.  I also had to use the beautiful Floral Frames bundle from Stampin’ UP! to create this card.  In the catalog it focuses on using it as a spring themed set, but I love how I was able to use it for a fall idea here. I am going to be demonstrating this awesome card for you today during my Facebook Live event at 10:30am PST.

By Wendy | September 14, 2018 | 4 Comments

The peek a boo card has been around for a long time.  However, I have never made one. So today I have a peek a boo card tutorial for you, and I think I’ve made it pretty simple.  I am featuring the adorable Trick or Tweet stamp set from Stampin’ UP! I watched Jennifer McGuire’s video on creating this style of card.  If you want to see her video you can go HERE. This card is very simple to make, but it has several steps.  I created a video in order to hopefully help you with the steps involved.  But I know the value of written instruction, so I hope you find the tips & instructions below helpful also. TIPS & INSTRUCTIONS: + Cut 3 pieces of card stock to create your card base.  You will need 1 – 4 1/4″ x 8 1/4″, 1- 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ […]
