Fold Out Card

I have been doing just plain cards lately so I decided to follow a challenge posted over at Mommysavers in the Scrapbooking section. http://mommysavers.com/boards/challenges/105222-random-card-challenge.html

It comes from a tutorial that I had found on this blog... http://francineclouden.typepad.com/tuesday_todo/2008/11/foldout-christmas-card.html What a gorgeous card she made!

Here is my try at a fold out card:


I used Paper from the DCWV photo Holiday stack, cut my snowflake out from the Cricut "Going Places" cartridge, covered it with Glossy accents and added Stampin Up glitter. The stamp is something I picked up at a garage sale and I am not sure who makes it but love his spikey hair!

Challenge--Emboss Paper Flowers

I made a card for a challenge on www.thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com I love the different ways that there are to use my Cuttlebug. So the challenge this week was to take paper flowers and emboss them. I took a pretty pink flower and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder. The stamp set is from Inkadinkadoo, die cut squares from Funky Squares die cut made with the Cuttlebug, paper from Stampin Up and Cardstock from DCWV. I also used a few stickles on the owl.

Outside: "A wise man once said..."


Inside: "Follow your dreams. Except the one where you are at work in your underwear."

Sorry the inside is blurry. I couldn't get a decent shot.
