Yesterday’s post got sidetracked by helping my son Corey move. He and his wife Anna, just had a new baby and to add more chaos to their lives they decided to purchase a new home. They upgraded by 50 years, 1 more bathroom and 2 more bedrooms. It’s a lovely house with lots of charm and character, but it was brutal moving everything in the 90 degree heat! Luckily it was only across town, maybe a mile, and both homes had air. It’s amazing how much stuff people can collect, living in a house for 10 years!
Now, lets move on to some fun swap cards before I have to go back and help with the few straggler items that didn’t get moved yesterday. I’ve got a couple of gorgeous cards featuring the Hand Penned stamp set.
This gorgeous fun fold was created by Pat Sodeifi who actually happens to have a birthday today! Below is a photo of the card opened so that you can see how this fun fold works.
The card starts with a base that is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the Hand Penned Designer paper. The black layer is 11″ x 3″ scored at 5 1/5 with the top half embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder and then adhered to the center of the base. The white greeting layer is 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and there are 3 Genial Gems scattered around the floral die cut. The greetings are from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.
This very easy to create card was made by Susan Burch. It very clean, simple and classical. The base is Misty Moonlight, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″, topped by a Scalloped Contours Die cut of basic white. Next is a 3″ x 4 1/2″ piece of basic white with a 3″ x 3″ square of Hand Penned Designer Paper adhered to the top. The greeting is from the Quiet Meadow stamp set. A piece of Pale Papaya ribbon is knotted around this layer and it is raised up with dimensionals.
