Arrow Fold Condolence Card

Welcome my crafty friends, Today I have for you an arrow fold card that I created.  The card design is not mine I found it on YouTube it is by Sam Calcott of the UK. Card base was created following Sam's YouTube video found here I kept the flowers simple because of pattern paper being busy. Using Susan's Garden Notes Love In The Mist I created 3 white flowers and several leaves attaching with Kids Choice Glue. Sentiment was stamped with black ink on white cardstock then matted in green cardstock.  Another sentiment was stamped inside of card. Hope you enjoyed this card and has inspired you to create your own Arrow Fold card they are really quick and fun to do. Remember Susan has a brand new release coming out 1st of September with Spellbinders so stay tuned you will love them! Thank you for stopping by today and until next time - Happy Crafting!

Family Birthday Cards

Welcome my crafty friends! Today I have a couple birthday cards I did for our grandson and my hubby.  Our grandson and hubby share their birthday - grandson was best birthday gift ever. Our grandson turned 18 and he loves to fish he has a boat and fishes when he is not working.  Hubby turned 79 and loves his John Deere tractor.   Cards are both 6" X 6" and I used a combination of dies and Cricut to make my cards. The pop up mechanism was same for both it was an old die set of Karen Burniston when she was with Elizabeth Craft Designs - Bathtub Pop Up.  Another time I would reshape the bathtub into a boat but I had already hand cut the boat then went looking for a die set that had a pop up mechanism to use kind of like putting the cart before the horse. KB Riley  1003  Word 2 Birthday, 1031 Numbers and 1049 Camping Charms  were used.  The fisherman, fish and the silhouette of boat and fisherman were cut on Cricut.  Hooked On Fishing was  cut from a top strip of design paper fro

Susan did the envelope card a couple of weeks ago on her Garden Club Live found here .  Another good video for making the envelope card is by Sam Calcott it can be found on YouTube here . From white soft finish cardstock created envelope and card base.  Used pattern paper to decorate envelope.  (An old Close to My Heart Paper used here)  I stamped  quote in black then used some little blotchy stamps with black ink to decorate inside of my card.  Close to My Heart stamp set - A Million Little Things was used. Created 4 Susan's Garden Notes Daisies, 6 asters (cut from blue cardstock), some Jasmine and ferns - Ladder and Maidenhair.  A few small branches were tucked in arrangement. To create the chicory I cut off the very ends of the asters then with small sharp sci
