Product Information/ Samples/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

As I'm writing this post it is a dreary day here in Texas. I spent yesterday with my youngest granddaughter while her parents were celebrating a birthday and an early Father's Day. We had such a great day of fun and now I'm in my stamp room creating.

Do You Need an Easy Gift Idea?

Classes / Events/ Facebook LIVE/ Papercrafting/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Happy Friday Stampers! Those of you moms, students, and just busy peeps,  I have an easy gift idea to share with you today! This card folder which holds six cards with envelopes,  can be made with minimal supplies. To save time since you would have all your supplies out, you could even make several at one time to have on hand. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't need a set of cards organized in a cute folder! Heck, why not make a couple for yourself and put birthday cards in one, sympathy in another, Thinking of You, and so on!

I purposely designed this to be a simple project. Now, if you are the Glitter Queen or lover of any embellishment, you can certainly “glam” it up!

Do You Need an Easy Gift Idea?

For my supplies I used:

1 sheet of Designer Series Paper (I used our new Garden Lane DSP coming June 4 in our Annual Catalog)
6 sheets of neutral CS, I prefer using Whisper White or Very Vanilla THICK CS – depending upon which is in your DSP
3-4 sheets of coordinating, colored CS, depending upon how many layers you want (for my project I used Mint Macaron, Garden Green, and Mossy Meadow)

I did this class in a Facebook Live video and you can watch it below. In addition to showing you how to make the folder and cards, I also share a few extra tips that I think will help you in your papercrafting:

easily cut your layers AND mount to your card base straight every time
save time mounting your cling stamp sets
stamp your sentiments perfectly straight every time.
