Under My Umbrella Side Fold

It’s a good day for a Blog Hop!  This week we are focusing on side fold cards.  It’s an easy way to add more interested to a simple card design.

My project for today uses the Under My Umbrella stamp set and Umbrella Builder punch.  In the US, spring has just arrived, so I wanted to make a pretty spring card.



This is a very easy fun fold.  Basically, you take a half sheet of cardstock 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score at 5 1/2″ and 6 3/4″.  Fold the card on the 5 1/2″ score line, then fold back on the 6 3/4″ score line.  Put adhesive on the inside of the small panel between the score lines and seal that part shut.  How easy is that?!

For my card, I stamped the umbrella and the rain boots directly onto a piece of DSP from the Ornate Garden Specialty pack.  I stamped the umbrella handle directly onto the white stitched square, fussy cut the boots, and popped the boots and umbrella up with dimensionals.

No card is complete without some sort of bling, so I finished this one off with In-Color Enamel Dots.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  If so, I’d love for you to comment below!

Now, let’s see what the other ladies have created!

Tri-Fold Twist Butterfly Gala

I am totally in love with this Fun Fold!  This was actually the second card I made using this fold, but I have others to share with you.

This card uses the Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating punch, along with the Flower For All Seasons DSP.

When the card is folded, it is in a vertical (portrait) orientation.

But, when you open it, it twists into a horizontal (landscape) orientation.  Isn’t that too cool!

Stay tuned for more cards made with this fun twist!

Coffee or Tea?

We are living in crazy times, aren’t we?  Was it only three months ago that we were encouraging people to stay off their phones and computers and get out and be more social?  Wow!  What a reversal.  I hope you’re all staying in and staying safe.

We had our March Stamp Club just before all this began escalating.  I’m so glad we were able to get together!

This is one of the cards we made at club.  There are stamp choices for both coffee and tea, and you can tuck a tea bag or coffee gift card in the inside pocket.

This stamp set is available FREE with a $100 order, but only until the end of the month!!
