Oval Fun Fold Card

Hello my friends!
Here's another card in my Flip Flap Card series.

I cut out several of Lori Whitlock's Flip Flap cards
but I didn't cut the card bases - just the decorative pieces.
A while back I found a way to make these cards
in a much simpler way. Is simpler a word? It is now.

Instead of cutting out the card base
 (which is confusing to me to figure out which way it folds),
I fold a regular A2 size card, 
then fold the front cover back onto itself.
I add the card decorative pieces
only attaching the center overlapping piece
on the left of the folded front cover.
I'm telling you - it's so much less frustrating and easier this way!


Isn't this little dino a cutie?!
He's from a Close To My Heart stamp set 
called Dino-mite Birthday.
I colored him with Stampin' Up stampin' blend markers.
Cardstock and pattern papers also from SU.
Lots of space to write or stamp a sweet message on the inside.


It's a great way to use up some scrap pieces
of pattern papers and cardstock.
And of course it mails flat with no extra postage.
That's always nice.

Big hugs to you all!

Flower Fun Fold Card

Hello my friends!
Yesterday I cut out several of Lori Whitlock's Flip Flap cards
but I didn't cut the card bases - just the decorative pieces.
A while back I found a way to make these cards
in a much simpler way. Is simpler a word? It is now.
Instead of cutting out the card base
 (which is confusing to me to figure out which way it folds),
I fold a regular A2 size card, 
then fold the front cover back onto itself.
I add the card decorative pieces
only attaching the center overlapping piece
on the left of the folded front cover.
I'm telling you - it's so much less frustrating and easier this way!

This card has nothing but the decorative pieces added.
No embellishments or stamping of any kind,
and I think it's so pretty.


Lots of space to write or stamp a sweet message on the inside.


For the next several days, I'll be posting more of these cards.
It's a great way to use up some scrap pieces
of pattern papers and cardstock.
And of course it mails flat with no extra postage.
That's always nice.
Hope you'll like the cards I post for the next few days.
Big hugs to you all!

Hello Box Card


Good morning, everyone!
I haven't made a box card in a while and thought this would be fun to do for today. The cut file is from Lori Whitlock's Cricut cartridge, All Occasion Box Cards. It's a fun cartridge.
The textured cardstock is from Cricut, and the pattern papers are from Stampin' Up.


You can fold this card flat for mailing.
Okay, this photo doesn't make it look too flat, but it smooshes down. :)


Have a blessed day!
:) Janis

Hi, everyone!
I colored this image with crayons.
Wasn't happy with that, and

Wasn't happy with that, but hey, it's still a cute image.

Valentine Project #10

Hi, everyone!
Time for the next Valentine project in this series.


Well, this was a different style of card for me to try.
I meant to have the inside attached to the inside of the card,
but I got glue crazy and accidentally attached the circle 
with the sheep to the inside of the cover. 
D'uh. Oh well. Still cute. 



MFT stamp set, Ewe Are the Best
Colored with various markers
Foam tape to attach jumping sheep
Flower pattern paper is Doodlebug Design
from the Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition, I Chews You,
stamp set in September 2018.
MFT Stitched dies for circle and rectangle cuts


Thanks for visiting with me today!
Here is your comment prompt:
Do you ever count sheep when you can't sleep?

Hugs!
