Hey, y’all – it’s Monday! Bleh. No. Really.
Bleh bleh bleh!! Yes, I’m happy to be home, but…I’d like a month of weekends, please! And no work. And no specter of future travel to places in Utah….I say again. BLEH BLEH BLEEEEEHHHHH!!
Okay – my self-blehing pity party is over.
Thank you for listening!
If you were able to join me last night on Facebook (thank you!) you saw me make today’s fun-fold card. If you weren’t able to join – here’s a link to the video on You Tube! Enjoy…
This card technique has been seen a lot on Pinterest these days, but the card I saw that really struck me and inspired this one is from Flutterbyheidi! Check out her card right here!
I used the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch to make this one. And a little bit of Wood Textures DSP. Take a look-see:
Oh wait – yes, that’s quite pretty, no doubt. But here’s the fun part!
So – the video shows all the how-to’s and where for’s. But, basically, you start with an 8″ x 8″ piece of card stock and then do some scoring and a little folding. Cut out a corner and then, with a little Tear and Tape, you end up with a square, corner pop-up card to decorate!
Now – I’d seen a card quite similar to this out on Pinterest, so I decided to try it for myself. I used the light whitewashed design in the Wood Textures DSP on three panels – all matted on Cajun Craze.
I cut a hole in the front panel, added a sentiment from Daisy Delight in Cajun Craze ink and then added a scalloped-edge circle frame in Cajun Craze. That’s made by cutting a scallop circle with a Circles Layering Framelit and then cutting the next size smaller straight side circle out of that. Then I just adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
The Daisy Delight daisy is stamped in Crushed Curry three times on Whisper White and punched with the matching Daisy Punch. I used my Clear Wink of Stella to pull some color into all the petals and then lightly curled them with a Bone Folder. I stacked them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals between them and adhered it to the card inside panel with a little smear of Fast Fuse.
The sentiment on the inside is from Daisy Delight, stamped in Cajun Craze – I’ve cut my Thank You image in half so that I can get the stacked words! I also stamped some Old Olive stems and Crushed Curry flowers.
I decorated my Whisper White Medium Envelope with more flowers from the Daisy Delight stamp set on the front…
…and I added another piece of the white-washed Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap and stamped it all over with Crushed Curry daisies!
Et Voila! This isn’t a hard fold to do – just take your time. Watch the video – and I highly recommend that you make a template to help you keep the folds and cuts straight. Or…diagonal…as the case may be! I love this one with the Daisy Delight stamp set and punch – but what other sets can you think of that would work with this kind of fold? Anywho – hope you like! 🙂

I think in a past FFF, I mentioned that Finny will grab the tail end of his collar and carry it along as he runs around. Yes?
Well. He’s gotten a bit obsessive….nay, compulsive!…about it!
He’ll twist himself into crazy contortions to grab it now. And – he works so hard trying to get it that he’ll twirl himself into a bush.
Or a golf cart! He’s a goof-ball, I tell you!
Apparently SOMEbody has to hold the dog to keep him in line!
Even in the house.
While he’s resting…
I got nuthin’, y’all. I simply do not know. 🙂
