This card was my 1st attempt at making the tri-fold shutter card.
I had absolutely NO supplies at this point.. so I had to get REALLY creative!
I used dollar section paper from Target, a heart punch that I ended up glittering, and the same technique described in my previous post of the Flocked/textured card.
I did a little of everything on this card, dry embossing, heat embossing, glitter, pop-up dots. This card took me forever due to lack of supplies and I kept building and building with what I had. It looked so plain at first, but I like how it came out. I made this card for my friend Jackie, who is a SCRAPAHOLIC! Haa haa~ She is "scrapping latina" for those of you who may know her. She LOVED this card, which made me feel good cuz I know she will appreciate it and the time I spent on it. Used her favorite colors... Purple (1st) and Pink. Believe me when I say, I had nothing (supplies).
It ended up coming out nice. Love you Jacko! *Y*
This is a card that I gave to a friend for her birthday. It came out lovely, even though other than construction, I didn't do much to it. The paper itself was gorgeous! Took the work out for me. Ha haa!!
Paper (from Michael's)
Me & My BIG Ideas: Coastal Venice (Flocked - all the plack print you see (feels fuzzy)/textured coral paper)
Recollections: Cardstock Paper (deep blue - base, black and cream - accents)
Base blue paper is cut @ 12" x 6", scored vertically at 2,4,8, 10 inches, then cut horizontally 1.5" from top (from scored lines 2 and 10) then cut again horizontally 1.5" from bottom (from scored lines 2 and 10). The card is folded up and down, sort of like a fan, but then the 2 inner folds are reversed... sounds difficult, but really isn't. I got the idea from many people on youtube - Thanks to all!!
Then I just measured out my smaller pieces and glued them on in a pattern, added a bow and my note.. and wha..la!!

Here is a note that I attached to a 3 piece gift we all gave for a bridal shower. Unfortunately, I didn't take pics of the other two small tags that all matched with this one.
Oh well.. So here I used chocolate 80lb for card base, tropical green 32lb, and baronial ivory 32lb all from envelopperinc.com . I used an alphabet stamp set from Stampin' Up for their initials then heat embossed it. Also from Stampin' Up, the Manhattan Flower embossing folder was used for the card base.
So simple, yet lovely!
As you can see my color schemes are pretty much the same because I'm using what I got.. which was a whole lot less than now. I haven't even started my new projects yet!!!
Another wedding Congratulations card... Different color scheme. Made my own envelopes too.
These colors are: (envelopperinc.com)
eggplant 80lb (card base and envelope)(from Paper Access in NYC - lovely store!)
black 32lb (circle)
Baronial ivory classic crest 32lb (back ground/message area)
The tag on the envelope was re-used, it was used on their wedding invitations to close, it has their initials on it.. so I decided to incorporate it. *Y*
Hello All! I have begun a NEW hobby! Making invitations and cards. Loving it!! Take a look at some things I have made so far... Think it's pretty good since I don't have that many supplies... Just the basics and my imagination. ;)
This is a wedding card I made for my friends. I did a little stamping with a flurished backgrounds stamp along with the congratulations, both from Stampin' Up. The Congrats is heat embossed with clear American Crafts embossing powder and Stampin' Up Pigment ink (I'd have to look up color if interested). The circle border punch is Fiskers, some pretty bow from Michaels, the flowers/brad I found in the dollar section at Target. I ordered the paper from Envelopperinc.com (I can look up colors/weight if interested as well).
Any whoo... got a lot more to post..
