Heart2Heart Challenge Fancy Fold

This week, Heart2Heart challenge blog is all about the Fancy Fold card.

As a Pinterest addict, I jumped over to my creative fold card board and found a few ideas and finally decided on the Double Front Fold.

Using the awesome Happy Times paper pack (May's National Scrapbook Month special) staying with the gold foil striped paper with black and white daisy cardstock and gold sequins and white with gold stripe ribbon.

The stamp sets I used are A Bunch of Love (C1647) and Doodled Designs (A1170)

I was inspired by one of our Instalife 2D ring books. While I am not an instagram type, I do love how these little books can work with so many other things. Mine holds specialty round stamps and this weekend in Vegas, someone shared how they would work for her husband's speciality chip collection.

When you open the first flap, you will find the second message again from the stamp set, A Bunch of Love (C1647).

 One more flap to open showing your final sentiment or gift card or whatever your imagination could come up with.

The scribble circle from Doodled Designs with three little hearts encircles the gold embossed final sentiment.

Love the gold, white, and black of this card -- simple, elegant and definitely fancy folded!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 



The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
