Well I finally got to the post office so my winners will be getting their packages within the next 3 days. When you work long hours you tend to miss things before they close, so making it there today was a blessing.
So to my blog candy winners...."the packages are on their way."
As usual I am always looking for new techniques or folds and this time I found a cute little card and decided to give it a try. Keep in mind that both cards are demo's therefore they aren't the best I could do but you can get the idea.
Well let's get started.
The newest card I found is called a "Block Card" and it is the cutest thing with lots of potential. The best part is you can use up all your scraps.
For this one I used some scraps left from my Graphic 45 "Birdsong Collection." I adore this little block card and can't wait to do more and decorate them all up.
One thing I need to warn you about is if you decide to make this card make sure you use some heavy card-stock, like the paper from Stampin Up or even some DCWV.
This card I created to be a display, which is why it is sitting on a base. I added the tag for a sentiment and then if I can find a few lightweight birds I can set them on the steps.
Although the card has lots of folds it can still be folded flat to fit inside an envelope.
Here I am showing a block envelope that you can make for your card. It will accommodate any decorations you may want to add, to include bulky items like charms or flowers.
Like the card, the envelope is really easy to make and can be decorated to match the card.
When you create these type cards you will need to decorate both sides with 1.5 inch pieces of scrap. I didn't mat my pieces on these demos but I will when I create one to actually give to someone.
And I will definitely use Stampin' Up card-stock for my base.
Well I just thought I would share these demos with you and maybe inspire you to give it a try.
