Business Card Holder

P1010229

Wow! This is a quick post!

Earlier today I went to a networking event run by a friend of mine.  Before I went I shared these quick phone snaps of some business card holders that I’d made to take with me over on my Facebook page, and in a couple of groups that I’m in. And I honestly wasn’t expecting such a FANTASTIC response from everyone who saw them!  I’m still a little overwhelmed a few hours later… SO… Here’s the post I promised of how to make them 🙂

You will need:

Cardstock measuring 3 3/4 x 7 inches – I used Old Olive, and Calypso Coral.
Pretty Petals DSP – Front panel measures 3 1/2 x 1 1/4 inches… or whichever gorgeous Designer Series Paper you fancy 😉
2 DSP Side Panels measuring 1 x 2 inches
Very Vanilla cardstock trimmed to 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches for the sentiment.

To make the card holder;

Score your cardstock on the long side at 1 3/4, 2 1/4, 4 3/4 & 5 1/4 inches.
Attach the DSP panel to the top front flap in the centre using Snail Adhesive.
Stamp the Very Vanilla strip with “HELLO” from the Crazy About You stampset in co-ordinating colours.  Attach to the bottom centre of the bottom flap (Snail again).

Score the 2×1 inch side panels on the long side at 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1 1/4 & 1 1/2 inches.  Concertina fold, and attach to the inside/bottom of the holder using Snail.

For the closure I used the 2nd Smallest Buttons from the Neutral Designer Buttons pack in Very Vanilla, adhered with Mini Glue Dots to the back.

This is also my first attempt at playing with my new photo backgrounds, and I really like them! 😀

Let me know what you think, speak to you soon!

Adventure Bound Happy Birthday card

100_1364I love simple cards… and nothing gets simpler than this!

Simply cut a sheet of Lost Lagoon for a card base (cut in half at 14.8cm, then score in half at 10.5cm)

Trim a sheet of the gorgeous Adventure Bound DSP Stack to 14.3 x 10cm

Using the Big Shot die cut the ‘Happy’ thinlit from the Hello You thinlits set in the middle (the Magnetic Platform makes this a breeze!)

Stamp the ‘Birthday’ from Crazy about You onto Whisper White in Lost Lagoon ink.  Trim into a flag shape, and layer onto a Lost Lagoon ‘flag’

Stick it all together, and you have a super quick, super simple card ready to give!

Does anyone else love super simple cards?

Baby Girl Card with Butterflies

IMG_0796

This cute little baby girl card moves away from the typical pinks and ‘baby’ images.

The card base is a sheet of A4 Whisper White Cardstock cut in half, and folded in half again, which gives an A6 card.

This is topped with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock from the 2013-2015 In Colour Collection cut 10mm smaller in both length and width (95 x 138 mm).

I then cut a square of Lullaby Designer Series Paper measuring 85 x 85mm to create the third layer.  Each layer had the corners rounded using the PL Corner Rounder punch, and were layered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

4 Bitty Butterfly shapes were punched after being stamped using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Stazon White.  These were then teamed with 2 Elegant Butterfly punch outs on coordinating cardstock.  These are layered up on mini Glue Dots.

Pair this with a Whisper White C6 Envelope, decorated to match, and we are good to go 🙂
