Sunday Nights Facebook Live Z fold card

Last night I showed my viewers how to make the card above.  The card is called a Z Fold type card and it is very easy to make.  So kick back and enjoy my Facebook live replay.


In addition to demonstrating how to make the Z fold card, I showed three of my Paper Pumpkin Alternative projects. Below are still photos of those.

Witches hat and jumper

Treat box

Treat box Measurements are 3 x 3 inch square of basic black card stock scored at 3/4″ all the way around.  Cut up two score lines on two opposite ends up to the first scoreline.  This will make your tabs.  Place tear and tape on the tabs and fold in to form your box.  Add liquid glue to your orange and black decorative pieces and add them to your box.  Decorate the white tombstone using the stamps in the kit and basic black ink then attach them to both ends.  Run ribbon through the holes and tie a bow to keep your box closed.



Accordion-style card.

When you untie the bow you can unfold a little surprise.



And then lastly the Mr. Bones card


Thanks for visiting today ~ come back tomorrow I have another cute project to share!

More Cookie Cutter Christmas


Merriest Wishes Stamp Set, Santa's Sleigh Stamp set

Combining Sets is Always Fun

I created this card using Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set plus images from two other SU stamp sets. The Merriest Wishes and Santa’s Sleigh stamp sets have images that enhance the already adorable Cookie Cutter set.  That is so exciting because with those extra images you have so many more avenues to explore when creating.

The sentiments that I used on this card are the number 25, Be Joyful and Glad Tidings and they are all from the Merriest Wishes stamp set. The Merriest Wishes stamp set is one of those sets that helps build on other sets.  Here is a good example of building….The Gingerbread men are holding hands, but without another element connecting them, they could look unfinished.  Adding these wreaths from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set was the perfect building stamp that I needed to build a connection between the gingerbread men and to keep a nice flow going.

I also needed a sentiment on the two smaller panels of this card, however they couldn’t be too big.  The number 25 from Merriest WIshes stamp set worked perfectly. Enhancing the number was easy with the circle framelits.  See what I mean about coordination and building up your cards? I love this fact about SU.  So many stamp sets coordinate with each other.  The font style of the  Be Joyful sentiment is absolutely beautiful.  The size of the Joyful stamp fit perfectly on my second panel.

I know, you must have this set now, here is the item number of the clear stamp set 142066, $20.00. This set does come as a bundle though.  The Merriest Wishes set was made to create Tags.  To create the tags you can buy this set in a bundle which includes the Thinlits.  They do have a wood mount bundle too.  Find the product bundle on pg. 21 of the Holiday Catalog.

Okay now back to the card.   How do you like the Washi Tape?  Yes, those cute gumdrops are Washi Tape.  Just add the tape to card stock and there you have it. So quick and easy.  The Washi Tape is a package of 5 tapes and as a bonus 2 of the tapes can be used all year round. YEAH!!!! Again, SU thinks about versatility so that we can get a lot of use  out of our purchases.

Designer Series Paper (DSP) anyone?  If yes is your answer check this DSP out.  Candy Cane Lane DSP. It’s the cutest paper ever.  On my card I used the mini Christmas trees and polka dot pattern.  I did that for two reasons.  One, the pattern is not too busy and the images are tiny. Because of that the DSP won’t take away from the focal points on the card.  Two, when the card folds closed you want your patterns to match up.

I used retired candy dots on the gingerbread men’s buttons and the new Candy Cane Lane Bakers Twine on the wreaths.

The Candy Cane Lane Suite is a collection of Early Expresso, Real Red and Whisper White colors.  I used Cherry Cobbler instead of Real Red.  I just want you to know that both reds work with this suite.

Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me.  Comment to let me know what you think.
