I created this card based on inspiration from Day 2 of Online Card Classes Clean & Simply Holiday class. You need to take the class to get all of the steps, but it was fun to get back with my watercolors again and a technique I learned long ago in college. I layered the watercolored panel onto a shiny piece of silver cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment for a bit of gloss and sheen. Thanks for stopping by.

I created this card for a friend. I love the sentiment–eating cake is important on one’s birthday! I colored the stamped image with Copic markers and layered it up using the sketch listed below as a reference. I was really pleased with the way it turned out and that I was able to use everything from my stash. I’ve had most of the supplies for years! That makes a card even better! Thanks for visiting.

- Dies – Spellbinders Swirl Happy Birthday Frame
- Patterned paper – Graphic 45
- Cardstock – Bazzill Bling
I created this card using a folding technique I had never tried before. This is called a double-pleat fold. I belong to a cardmaking group online and periodically we propose challenges to the group. During our fifth anniversary celebration recently, someone had a challenge to create a card featuring a fancy fold. This is the fold I chose. At first I thought it would be really difficult, but once I read through the instructions, I was able to create it without problem. I adhered the frame die-cut down onto the card base and then added the pleated piece. Having double-sided paper for the pleated piece made it finished very nicely. Once that was all adhered, I topped it off with the sentiment die-cut, which is really striking. I love this die set from Spellbinders! I added a few rhinestones on points on the die-cuts to add a little sparkle. I really enjoyed this fold and will definitely make some more cards using it.
