Secret to a rich life..



I finally was able to sit down today and work on a card or two. This coming Wednesday night is the card swap at my lss (Stamp and Deliver). The theme this month is odd shaped cards or folds. I went with the folds and created a wiper card. This card also will be submitted for the ad inspired challenge at 365 cards and for flutterby challenge to use green . I began with grey cardstock cut into 4 1/4 by 8 1/2 pieces. You will need 2 of these. Score at 1.5 and 3 inches on both sheets. Fold on the scores. Create your main panel as desired and add patterned paper on the two side panels. Cut a piece of cardstock 1.5 by 3 inches long. Score on the diagonal at 1.5 inches. This will be the part that pops up. Embellish as desired. Once the card front is complete, add a strip of sticky tape on each side and adhere your second piece of 4 1/4 by 8 1/2 cardstock. Along with the grey cs, I also used Aqua Mist by Paper trey ink, the patterned paper is from My Minds Eye Home collection. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, buttons by Basic Grey, ribbon from Michaels. I sponged the front sentiment panel with SU Baja Breeze, Ranger Distress inks in bundled sage wild honey and dried marigold. A few black rhinestones finished the card. I needed to make 4 cards total and I didn’t have enough of the patterned paper so I also made this version:


Both sentiments are from the clear set by Cloud 9 birthday sentiments. This really is an easy card to put together and when folded, it will fit into a regular envelope for mailing. Thanks for stopping by today.
