Embellished Ornaments Corner Flip Card

8 Dec

I love folds that are simple yet provide that little “Wow” we all hope to get with our cards.  Today’s corner flip card does just that.  This card uses the Embellished Ornaments stamp set.

To get the flipped corner….
1.  On the front the card, place the outside edge of the top of the card at 3″, then cut starting at 2-1/2″ down to the 4-7/8″ mark.

2.  Rotate 90 degrees, placing the card at the 3″ mark again. This time cut from 3″ up to 5/8″.

3.  Now flip the corner and crease with your bone folder.

To You & Yours Too

1 Dec

2015-11-29 20.52.18

Sponging is an easy technique that gives a great look.  In this card, I used the stamp set To You & Yours Too.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.  If you’d like to recreate, here are the directions.

  1.  To create this card, you’ll want to make a CS and Xerox paper mask  by using the 2″ circle punch.
  2. Begin by using Marina Mist to sponge the center ornament.
  3. Next use a Xerox paper mask to stamp the image through using night of navy. (I found the image doesn’t come through clearly if you use the CS mask.
  4. Going back to the CS mask, use Soft Sky to sponge and then stamp the stars on the other ornaments.
  5. Finish by stamping the hangers and saying in Night of Navy.
