Double Z-Fold Card - Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter - Sweet Friend Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute and fun fancy fold card that is super easy but looks very complicated.  You all know how we roll here!  Easy but looks more involved, than it really is.  I created this Double Z-Fold Card using products from the January-June Mini Catalog and Saleabration items.  I also tossed in a sentiment from one of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog just for fun.  I used the Welcome Easter Stamp Set for the main images on my card today and one of the sentiments came from the Welcome to the Team Stamp Set.  I used some of the Golden Honey Speciality Designer Series Paper as well.  Here's a look at my project.

So this is a super cute little card with a fun unexpected wow when you open it.  Unlike normal z fold cards it opens vertical.  And has plenty of room to write massages which makes it a perfect card from a team or church group.


This was not the easiest card to photograph.  Here's a look at it all unfolded.

How to Make a Star Easel Card - Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super fun fold card for you.  As you know if you have followed me or been here be for you know that I love cards that look complicated but are super easy todo.  And, today's cards no exception.  My project today is a Star Easel card.  I made this card after seeing it in a UK card magazine and just had to figure it out.  Here's a look at my project.

Tips & Tricks: 

You can create this card with a half sheet of cardstock for the base.  Along with that you need just a little whisper white and a couple sheets of six by six pattern paper.  For my card I used Seaside Spray as my card base and the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper. 

You can fit this card in a standard A2 size envelope.  So it's easily mailed, without any extra postage.  Which is always good.  Once I had the designer series paper attached to the card and put together I added some snowflakes and rhinestones to decorate the card.  I also stamped some snowflakes on the sentiment piece, but stamped off first.  I then added the sentiment full strength. 

When you go to put the points in place as you will see in the video you may have to use your snips to cut the cardstock all the way through.

Here's another version of the star easel card that I made.  With this version I used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.  
Thanks for dropping by I hope that you enjoyed this card, and I hope that you give it a try.

Bird Ballad Tri Fold Shutter Card (A Cat's Dream)

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a super cute card with you today.  I created a tri fold shutter card for you today.  This card was inspired by my little Louie that loves to sit in a window and watch birds outside.  Of course you know that I could never catch him doing this yesterday when I wanted to take a picture for my post today.  Cats are very much their own little furry creature and have a mind of their own.  Here's a look at my card.

I know that the only reason he sits in the window looking at the birds outside is that he wants to just be friends with them.  Right? I am going to go with that thought anyway.  I used both the Free As a Bird Stamp Set (NEW) and the Nine Lives Stamp Set (Carry over item) from the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog on my card today.  I also used the matching Cat punch to punch my sweet little Louie out.  Louie is a solid black cat that Charles' Dad found two years ago and he came to live with us.  He was about six weeks old when he came to us, and had been dumped by a busy street.  Charles' Dad Tee found him and rescued this sweet love muffin.  Louie is the black cat in the box with his now sister Georgie-Ann (Georgie was also a rescue she was born around the same time under our pool house/garden shed and I worked for months to get her to come close and then into the house.)  Now she's in the house all the time.  They love each other.
Charles took that picture and sent it to me at work one day.  They got in my Amazon box that came in the day before.  Silly fur babies.  You have to love them, but let's get back to the card shall we.  

A tri fold shutter card looks way more complicated then it really is, I had made one in the past but forgot how to do it.  So I just YouTube it and found a ton of tutorials for it.  I used the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper for my card and trimmed it down to fit my card panels.  I matted each layer with some Daffodil Delight cardstock and my cardbase is in Soft Suede.  I pulled all the colors I used except the basic black from my designer series paper.  Basically a Tri Fold Shutter cards is 2 score lines all the way across the cardstock on the short side and two score lines that connect the cut lines.  
My base was cut at 10 1/2" x 5 1/2" and on the short side you make two cuts.  You line the cardstock up at 1 3/4 on the trimmer and line the cutting arm up at (the little ruler on the cutting arm) 1 3/4 and cut down to 8 3/4, flip it around to the other side and do the same thing.  Then you are going to score at 1 3/4 all the way down.  Move to 3 1/2 and connect the cut lines with a score.  Move to 7 and do the same thing.  Then move to 8 3/4 and create a score line all the way down.  It folds up like this in the end.  

My Designer Series paper and Cardstock Measurements: 

  • Cardbase:  5 1/2 x 10 1/2 
  • Designer Series Paper: (2) 1 3/4 x 5, (4) 3/4" x 1 1/2", (2) 3/4" x 3
  • Daffodil Delight Mat layers:  (2) 1 1/2 x 5 1/4" , (4) 1" x 1 3/4, (2) 1" x 3 1/4" & (1) 2 3/4 x 3 1/4
  • Whisper White:  2 5/8 x 3 1/8 and some scrap to stamp and punch out the cat

I colored my little Louie bug using Smoky Slate light and dark blends, and the basic black light blend for the darkest part.  I added a little of the dark petal pink blend to the inside of his ears and then punched it out.  The bird and branches were colored with Pool Party Light and dark and Old Olive light and dark blends  I used just a little of the light Soft Suede blend on the branch. No super fancy coloring just simple blends coloring for my card.  The sentiment I used came from the Nine Lives Stamp Set; I thought it was just to funny not to use on my card.  
Thanks for joining me today for another fun card featuring the products in the Bird Ballad suite.  I hope that you have enjoyed my little card.  If you need any of the supplies I used I would be happy to help you and be proud to be your demonstrator.  You will find all the links below in my shopping list.  Have a wonderful day and I will see you tomorrow for the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop.  
Happy Stampin'
