Double Diamond Fold Card (2) - using Free As A Bird - Video Tutorial


I have another Double Diamond Fold card to share with you today. This one shares the same name as the one I showed a few posts back (HERE) but looks completely different. You can find the Video below.

I used the Free As A Bird stamp set and coordinating Bird Ballad Designer Series papers - it's a very pretty card :o)


The sentiment comes from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set.

All the images on the centre panel were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I also embossed this panel using the Subtle folder.


The card folds quite flat and will fit inside a standard envelope for a 6" square card.


On the back is a panel to write your message.


I decided to create a coordinating box to hold my card. You can find a Video on how to create this size HERE.

Here is the Video for the card ...

Holiday Haul - Trio of Trees


I have another Holiday Haul card to share with you today :o) This is one of our newer Host stamp sets from the Autumn / Winter catalogue.

I just used the little Tree image this time together with the Stars. 

I stamped the middle Tree first in Shaded Spruce and then heat embossed the Gold Stars onto it using the Delicata Golden Glitz ink and Gold embossing powder.
I then added another Tree either side of the first one, this time with Pear Pizzazz ink. I also stamped two extra Pear Pizzazz Trees onto scrap Whisper White card and cut them out by hand. These were layered over the first ones using Dimensionals. I added some Clear Wink of Stell to these to give them some glimmer.


The beautiful Gold Ribbon is from the new Christmastime is Here product suite. The products in this suite are all available separately.

The sentiment is from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set, another of our Host sets from the Autumn / Winter catalogue.
