Gone Fishing

Hello Friends,

I am sharing a slimline card featuring the dies Fishing Gear and Fishing Pole and Boat.  I am really low on masculine cards so I am making this one that can be used as a Birthday or Father's Day card for any guy that loves the outdoors.  It reminds me of my Grandpa who use to love lake fishing!


Design Steps:

1.  Start with a dark brown slimline base measuring 8 1/4 x 3 1/4 when folded.  Cut a piece of water designer paper 2 3/4 x 7 3/4. Cut three pieces of kraft card stock using the Window Slimline die


2.  Glue the window frames together and then ink the windows with TH Vintage Photo
3.  Glue the water DP to the back of the Slimline Windows and then glue to the dark brown card base
4.  Use the following dies Fishing Gear, Fishing Pole and Boat, Campin' Out Sun & Moon, Bear & Sign and Moose and Trees cut out the various colors of card stock.  Assemble the pieces
5.  Glue the lake, boat, tree and sun to the middle window
6.  Glue the sign, lures and tackle box to the right side window as shown above
7.  Glue the Pole, fish, vest and boots to the left side window as shown above and your card is complete

Giddy Up!

Hello Crafty Friends 

It is Pam sharing with you today!

I decided to change it up a bit and do a Western Theme card.  I am featuring the sweet Dog in a Cowboy Boot die on a fancy fold card. The slip in tag can hold a greeting and gift card.  This fancy fold was inspired by Beth over at SplitcoastStampers.

                                                                                                                                                     Background picture from Freepiks


Designer Steps:

1.  Use a dark brown A2 card base and cut the front flap at a diagonal save the cut off triangle.  Cut a piece of double sided designer paper 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Take the double sided designer paper and cut it at a diagonal as shown above
2.  Glue one side of the designer paper to the left flap and the other side of the piece to the triangle that is not attached yet.  Next put a thin line of glue on the outter edge and bottom of the unattached triangle and then glue it to the front of the card.  This will create a pocket
3.  Cut a piece of dark brown card stock 5 x 3 3/4 and a piece of stripped designer paper 4 3/4 x 3 1/2.  Round the corners and glue together
4.  Decorate the inside piece as you wish.  I am going to use it as a gift card holder.  Once decorated slip the stripped piece inside of the pocket

5.  Using the Dog in a Cowboy Boot die cut out the pieces and ink the edges before assembly
6.  Cut a strip of brown card stock 1 x 11.  Use a punch on cream colored card stock to create the scallop.  Cut one 2 inch cream colored circle and ink.  Cut one 2 1/4 inch circle in dark brown.  Glue the circles together
7.  Wrap the band around the card and secure it to the card back.  Glue the circles to the center and then add the Boot and your sentiment.  Your card is complete

Just Bee-cause

Hello Friends

My supply of cards is running a little low so I thought I would make one that could be used for multiple occasions such as thinking of you, miss you, just because and so on.  I did a fancy fold that I have done in the past that I just love.  I am featuring two dies: Bee Gnome and Flowers.

Background photo by FreePiks
Design Steps: (Here is a link to a video that I used to make the base https://www.pinterest.com/pin/443534263317816376/ )
1.  Start with a piece of white card stock measuring 10 x 6 3/4.  Score at 3, 4 1/2, 6, 7 1/2
2.  Fold the flap back along the 6 inch score. Place a ruler at the bottom along the fold and use a pencil to mark small dots at 1/2, 1 3/4, 2, 3 1/4, 3 1/2, 4 3/4, 5, 6 1/2
3.  Place your card into a paper cutter and cut from the dots to the closest score line as shown above
4.  When you have completed the cuts fold as shown below



5.  To cover the panels cut 2 black pieces 6 3/8 x 2 3/4, 2 white pieces 6 1/4 x 2 1/2, 1 black piece 6 3/8 x 1 1/4 and 1 white piece 6 1/4 x 1 1/8
6.  I used a honeycomb stencil to decorate the white panels and 2 colors of yellow ink
7.  I then splattered the panels with the darker yellow ink
8.  Glue the panels together and then add to the white card base
9.  Glue down the 8 black rectangles as shown above
10.  Use the Flowers and the Bee Gnome dies and cut out the pieces
11.  Shade the pieces and then assemble
12.  Stamp the sentiment and layer onto black card stock.  Decorate with front as shown above.  Cut out the letters in yellow and shade then add to the card.  Finish adding the flowers and bees and your card is complete
