Forever Lovely Pocket Card Tutorial

By Wendy | January 23, 2019 | 5 Comments

I’m not even gonna lie, I am so dang proud of this card. Y’all it took me a couple rounds of measuring and figuring to get this right.  But it’s so fabulous. I actually was laying in bed when I thought up the design for this card. Thankfully I sleep with a pencil and notepad right next to me on the night stand.  I grabbed the notepad and sketched the idea super quick and then was able to fall soundly asleep. TIPS & INSTRUCTIONS: + Cut Whisper White thick card stock pocket piece at 8″ x 5″, score at 4″ on the 8″ side + Score at 1/2″ & 4 1/2″ on 5″ side + Cut away the 1/2″ tab on one side of the pocket card (see video if this step doesn’t make sense) + Trim away at a diagonal and trim tabs that are left down about 1/2″ […]

By Wendy | January 11, 2019 | 1 Comment

Making fun size cards is, well, fun! HAHA! I love going out of the box and creating stuff that will be a surprise to the person I am sending it to.

Fancy Fold Humming Along Card

By Wendy | January 9, 2019 | 1 Comment

Fancy Fold cards are super fun to create.  I had an idea for this one that just kind of came to me. Earlier this week I used the hibiscus flower quite a bit and realized I needed to show off this gorgeous humming bird. I created the base of the card with a Whisper White thick card stock.  All the details are below, I would very much appreciate it if you would pin some of these photos to your Pinterest boards if you have them.   One the things I am attempting to focus on in 2019 is creating envelopes to go with my cards.  Even if it’s just a simple stamped image. Doing this really isn’t difficult.  You have the stamp set out anyway, may as well add a stamp to a envelope. I have created a video for you so that you can see how this card folds […]
