Card Fold Friday Video

Card Fold Friday is here and I chose to do a V Fold Card. Again it is a simple card with an open style.  Watch the video to see what I mean.  I have a bonus card below it.

Measurement:   Base card 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″

Score at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″

Inside piece:  3 3/4″ x 5″ and  3 1/2″x 4 3/4″

Remember the Tool of the Week is embellishments.  So this card uses two embellishments —  button and ribbon.  I chose this delightful stamp because I think it will work for any gender.  Afterall, you have Father’s Day coming up in a couple of months.  Also, think about this as retirement card or graduation.  So circle the globe with this card.

Stamp Set:  Going Global

Embellishment:   Basic Metal Buttons, 5/8″ Striped Cotton Ribbon (Lost Lagoon), Linen Thread

Color Combination:  Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon

I would like to challenge you to use these colors or the other retiring colors in a card or a project of your choice. You may post it to my Facebook page.


What do you think of using Mossy Meadow with Lost Lagoon? Is Mossy Meadow too dark?  I didn’t think so.  To me they are perfect combination.  These colors will be the ones that probably will retire out.

Paper:  Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow Cardstock

Today is another challenge. So you are getting extra card today.  The theme is Western and had to go to my retired stamps. The one I pulled is Stampin’ Up!

Check out all the other great designs at   So now that is Friday you kick up and your heels and have fun creating.

Did You Know It is A Season to Celebrate?

DSC_0026 Wooden Celebrate

Before we get to celebration season,  I want to apologize for the video problems.  I was notified this morning that the last two videos were marked private.  I was surprised because on my end it shown public.  However, for some unknown reason the publication button did not take.  I do not check my playlist on You Tube.  I go to what shows up on my blog.  A fatal error on my part.  So the Friday Card Fold Video is up and so is yesterday’s WOW Wednesday.  Again sorry for this.

Now onto today’s card.  You notice I said “a season to celebrate.”  This time of the year we have graduations, people retiring, and birthdays as usual.  Hence, season to celebrate.  So keeping with the embellishment theme, I chose to use the Stampin’ Up! Expressions Natural Elements.  These are wooden elements that add something to a card. It is perfect on that special card. These elements have Congrats, Thanks, plus the Celebrate all in one package.


Stamp Set: Gorgeous Grunge

Embellishment: Expressions Natural Elements

Color Combination: Crumb Cake, Tangelo Twist

I think Crumb Cake is a natural with Tangelo Twist.

Ink:  Archival Black

Paper:  Black cardstock, Crumb Cake cardstock,  2014-2016 Color Collections (Brights), Tangelo Twist

Accessories: Star Framelit, Big Shot, Chevron Punch

I can’t resist giving you another item.  Notice I said item because it isn’t card. Your second embellishment is doing a treat bag and using a clothespin.  Stampin’ Up has all these colorful mini clothespins. I simply chose so paper and made a treat bag and decorate.  Go to the Annual Catalog and check it out.  If you need a catalog, you can request on my blog site.
