{Tue} Technique: Potted Plants Fancy Fold Cards

Tuesday, March 09, 2021

 Hello, Kraftie Friends!

I made a Pop-Up Box Card a long time ago (click HERE to see the post)...so, thought it was time to make similar cards with the same concept, but different designs...

These cards were inspired by Challenges that are using Book covers as inspiration...

The first one is very easy, since I used a Die Cut Set (Card In a Box - Christmas by Sizzix) plus other dies by Spellbinders...do you see a camouflaged birdie?

Card #1

The second one was inspired by a card I saw on the homepage of SplitCoastStampers.com + me trying to make the most out of double-sided papers (I plan to make a video soon once I recover my voice...who knows when that will happen! lol!)

Card #2

This is a Trifold Card...and this is the front:

...and when you open it:

I used double-sided PP and some die cuts from Spellbinders, others are Sizzix and SU!, CTMH Cherry Blossoms Stamp Setalcohol-based markers, Blue Belle Sequins, and an embossing folder from my stash. I made the box myself (unlike the previous box, which was die cut).

I was inspired by the "There's a Tiger in the Garden" cover...the plants, butterfly and flowers...just don't have a tiger on it...but I used the color orange!


Card #1

1. The Library Challenge #78: Garden Birdwatcher's Bible (inspired by elements from the cover)

2. Double Trouble #78: Wearin' o' the Green partnering with Use Your Stuff 

3. Cuttlebug Mania: Today our Favorite Color is Green

Card #2

1. Double D: Book Covers

2. Beyond The Blue #5: Rustic Wood Background

3. Unicorn Challenge #63: Make it Feminine

4. Try it On Tuesday: Say it With Flowers
