I have managed to make it through this week and the Texas’ idea for dealing with cold weather. Do. Nothing. Turn power off. Turn water off. C’mon Texas, we can do better! The rest of the US deals with way worse temperatures just fine! Ok, rant over.
I did manage to get some cards done when the power sporadically came back on!
Last Saturday, I showed these gorgeous cards created to show both sides of the paper. Here is the link for them.
Since I’m sort of short on creativity and electricity time, I decided to do the same today with another Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper, Paper Blooms.
In person, this paper looks a bit different. It wasn’t my favorite honestly.
But……I created some cards and I like it a little better now! Because, just look at these –
Pretty sweet, right?
They all three use the same card base, 5 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″. This gives a base of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2, with an inch flap to adhere the pattern paper to.
The pattern paper layer varied in size a bit from card to card. Anywhere from 4″ x 5 1/4″ to 3 3/4″ x 5″. My layers are in 1/4″ increments.
These first two cards, the solid layer in the inside was 4″ x 5 1/4″, with the pattern paper being 3 3/4″ x 5″. The strip on the outside is 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.
I used the same sentiment on all three cards from the In Bloom stamp set. We always need birthday cards.
This last card, the pattern paper was 4″ x 5 1/4″.
All three cards had a navy twine bow for a little extra something!
This shows what the cards look like on the inside. You can see the other side of the Designer Series Paper and how I decorated the insides. Simply pretty!
Sort of a ‘fun fold’! What do you think?
