Lemon Lime Twist Corner Fold Card

Hello Stampers!

Today I’m featuring three things. First this card is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #6 using the row with Shadow – Layers – Square. Then I’ve brought back a fold I used in the past (but I love it) – the Corner Fold.  Lastly I’m using one of our NEW In Color cardstock colors – Lemon Lime Twist.

 

I’m really getting to like this Lemon Lime Twist more each time I use it. In person the Daffodil Delight butterfly looks so much better. Also, I apologize again for the bit of blur in the photo. I’m still working on the correct settings. This camera just isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

Measurements for the Corner Fold:  Card base – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/2″; Black Cardstock – 2 3/4″ square, 1 1/4″ x 4″ strip, 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece for inside; Whisper White – 2 1/2″ square, 1 ” x 3 3/4″ strip, 3 3/4″ x 5″ for inside.

To make the Corner Fold:  Place the card at the 3″ mark on your Stampin’ Trimmer, place the blade at 2 1/2″ and cut from 2 1/2″ to 4 7/8″, turn your card one quarter turn clockwise and place the blade at 3″ and cut from 3″ to 5/8″.  Fold the corner down carefully making sure the corner is positioned evenly.

I liked this card so much I decided to use it in my July classes. So, if you are attending class on either July 19th or 22nd you will be making this card!

I promise my next post will be using the Early Release Carols of Christmas bundle. The Thinlits in that bundle are awesome!  Until then…

Happy Stamping!

Here’s our second card for June classes. I LOVE this butterfly die and plan to use it as much as I possibly can. 🙂

Best Wishes Butterfly 2

Using only one stamp set (Butterfly Basics) this card is complete. The new In Color Delightful Dijon and Whisper White made a statement of simplicity. There’s a little polka dot retired DSP in the background. The Hello Honey Satin Ribbon blends in nicely. The Tag Topper punch made the cute tag with Wild Wasabi ferns at the bottom. I stamped the little butterfly on the inside and on the front of the envelope. The Pearl Jewels embellishment add a touch of pizzaz. All in all a well received card by class attendees.

Enjoy your summer and find a little time for yourself – to stamp!

Happy Stamping!
