#SU! Waves of the Ocean Twisted-Easel

Are you looking for something a bit different when designing a card for that special someone? This fun-fold card is just what you are looking for!

It uses basic dimensions, but with a "twist"! 


The card front comes from a design I just loved, shared by Linda Cullen. I simplified the design front, but then used it for a Twisted-Easel fun-fold card. Thanks for the idea Linda!

Here are the measurements as promised:

Card base: Coastal Cabana cardstock, 4-1/4" x 11"; scored along the 11" side at 5-1/2" (score diagonally along the card front from lower 5-1/2" score-line up to the upper corner)

Basic Black cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4"; 2-7/8" x 3-7/8"; scrap with Adhesive Sheet adhered to one side for the bird dies

Shimmery White cardstock: 2-3/4" x 3-3/4"; 2" x 3" for the bird on the inside; scraps for clouds cut from dies

Waves of the Ocean DSP: 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"; 1-1/2" x 5-1/4"

#SU! Cactus Cuties Hello

Sometimes you want just a simple card to put into the mail that says "hello". That's exactly what this cute little card does!



Paired with the Pattern Party designer series papers (paper that you can choose when you host a party or spend $150 or more) or any fun patterned paper that you have on hand.

By choosing a pastel color palette, it changes the mood. And, this layout can be turned around to make a horizontal fold card too. So many possibilities!

Here are the measurements:

Basic White Thick cardstock: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored along the 11" side at 4-1/4"
Pool Party cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4"
Crushed Curry cardstock: 2-1/4" x 3-1/2"
Pattern Party DSP: 3 coordinating prints 1- 1-1/2" x 2-1/4" (horizontal orientation); 1- 1-1/2" x 3-3/4" (vertical orientation); 1- 1-1/4" x 1-1/2" (horizontal orientation)
Ribbon or Trim of choice (I used Pool Party 3/8" sheer ribbon): 2 pieces, 1- 6"; 1- 3"

#SU! Ocean Front Sympathy

It never fails that when you need a sympathy card you don't have one. I am not in that situation right now, but I want to be thinking ahead a little bit. This card layout is one that I think I might use for other occasions as well; perhaps with different color schemes.


This simple layout goes together quickly, and if you decided you didn't want to cut-out the rock in the foreground, it would go even quicker.

Here are the measurements:

Coastal Cabana cardstock base: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored along the 8-1/2" side at 4-1/4"

Pumpkin Pie cardstock: 3-3/8" x 4-5/8" 

Shimmery White cardstock: 3-1/4" x 4-1/2"

Basic White cardstock (you could use Shimmery White as well): 4" x 5-1/4" and scraps to stamp the rock and the greeting.

I hope you'll watch this short video tutorial for tips and assembly tricks:

#SU! Beachy Birthday Slide-Out Pocket Fun Fold Card

 When it's just 6 degrees outside, I tend to want to think of warmer climates and for me that always include the beach. The Paradise Palms Bundle is the perfect set for that beachy feel.



When I think of the beach, besides sand and ocean waves I also tend to think of white-washed wood. The opposite sides of every piece of Heart & Home Designer Series Papers has a gray wood-grain design. Perfect choice for a beachy card!


So many of the birthday cards I send these days get sent with a gift card. Therefore I'm always looking for a great way to package the two together. This gift card pull card was just the thing. 


Instead of using ribbon which adds a bit of bulk to the front and makes it a bit more difficult to mail, I added an adhesive-backed die cut which makes this card very mailable.

Hope you'll check out my video tutorial below:


Measurements:
Basic Gray cardstock: 4-1/4" x 11" and scored along the 11" side at 3-1/2" & 9"; 3/4" x 5-3/4" apply Adhesive Sheet to the back and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with die-cut

Basic White cardstock: 3-1/2" x 7" and scored along the 7" side at 1/2" and 5" (this is for the inside pull); 2-5/8" x 3-3/8" for the beach scene image

Pool Party cardstock: 2-3/4" x 3-1/2" 
Heart & Home DSP: 4" x 5". Cut so you have 2 pieces: 1- 1-3/4" x 4; 1- 3-1/4" x 4" 
(You could substitute a pieces of ribbon or trim, 14" instead)
