Twist Gate Fold – Get Well

Hello Stampers,

With the summer vacation and extreme heat we are experiencing it’s been difficult to sit down and prep my posts. But, today here’s a card that is very unique. Warning…it looks smaller than the normal size card but the way it’s made makes it just fit into an envelope. 


You can see that the diagonal is just long enough to fit into an envelope. This card is great for using up all that leftover DSP you have sitting around. Just find two complimentary designs and you are all set.


Here it is opening up to find a lovely greeting inside. 

I got the idea for this fold from Julie Davison.   

It looks complicated but it isn’t really. I used this fold for cards in one of my classes and it was a hit.


Open all the way!

Highland Heather Sympathy

Hello Stampers!  Today’s card features several new items. One of our new colors is Highland Heather…it’s lovely! I’ve also featured two new stamp sets – Painted Glass and Kindness & Compassion. 

I know most people don’t like to make Sympathy cards but they are needed at times. I try to make my Sympathy cards a bit cheery and elegant. This card has a lot details that show the recipient you really care.

The die cut along the bottom comes from the new Stained Glass Thinlits. I wove a piece of white satin ribbon through it and the final result is beautiful. The Layered Leaves Embossing Folder gives the background a nice subtle touch of texture. This wonderful font greeting is from the Painted Glass Stamp Set.

This is a beautiful sentiment and the butterflies add a bit of color.
