Twist Fold Fun Card

This is card features a pocket on the front and back making it perfect to tuck a gift card inside. I gave my customers a choice of which design they wanted from the Sycamore Street DSP.  Then they chose the coordinating colors and buttons for their embellishment.  I guess this is where the “Fun” comes in to play in its name.

The Stampin’ Trimmer makes it easy to score and cut the precise measurements for this card.

A Perfect Day

This was a quick and easy card to put together.  The vivid colors of the Sycamore Street Desiger Series Paper and the sentiment is what makes it outstanding.  Maybe I should send it to myself.  I wouldn’t mind having a perfect day.

Sycamore Street Pinwheel

I cased this card from a swap Sally Nusbaum received at Leadership. I thought it was adorable. I didn't get the name of the source. It's just too cute not to share.  The base of the card is 4 ¼ x 5 ½ with Island Indigo.  Whisper White is cut at  7’1/2” x 5 ¼” and scored at 4”.  The Sycamore Street DSP is cut at 3 ¼” x 5” and attached to the card front.  I punched a scrap using the 2 ½” circle punch to use as a template to position the circle placement on the front of the card.  Punch through both the Whisper White and DSP at the same time.  I also punched another scrap and folded it in fourths to locate the center of the circle for the brad placement.  The pinwheel actually rotates when attached through the back Whisper White cardstock.  Once the pinwheel was attached, I mounted it to the Island Indigo card base.  I quick stamp and ribbon finishes the delightful card.
