I'm working on displays today for the Walnut Ridge Business Expo on Tuesday. I'll have a Stampin'Up! booth showing our great Starter Kit and hopefully share the opportunity to become a Stampin'Up! Demonstrator. Laura Diamond will be there with me, so stop by between noon and 4:00pm to say hello. I'll post photos later this week. If you need directions, check my events for more details.
I've also adjusted my comments option, so you don't have to have a google account. Feel free to leave a comment.
Today is day 1 of the Delightful Decorations week long Showcase. Stampin' Up! has had this stamp set and the coordinating punch for a little while, but it's one of my favorites and very versatile to boot!. This first card is an easy fun fold "Explosion Card."
|Here is the card closed. I'm using the new Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog.|
|This is the card fully opened. Plenty of room on the back to write a message. Although it looks a little complicated, it's really a snap. I've included the directions below.|
|(I promise to write bigger next time)|
Cut a piece of card stock 4" x 12". Score (on your Simply Scored Tool) along the long side at 2", 4", 8" and 10". Add the Diagonal Score Plate to your Simply Scored Tool, then score diagonally at 2" and 6". Turn it around so the opposite long side is now at the top, then score diagonally again at 2" and 6". This will give you the above photo. Fold and crease along the straight score lines like a valley (inward). Fold and crease the diagonal lines like a mountain (outward). Push in the outside panels and shown in the second photo, then close everything and crease again with your bone folder. Voila!
The 2 pieces of DSP on the outside panels are 1-7/8" wide by 3-7/8" high. To make the 2 triangle pieces, cut a 3-1/2" square of DSP then cut diagonally to make 2 larger triangles, then cut one of those in half. The center Gumball Green Square is a 2-1/2" square. It's embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots EF.
