|I used Holly Berry designer series paper to decorate the top and sides. Love the Real Red satin ribbon which adds a classy touch.|

Last week there was a loud crash as my cat, Cuddles, knocked a box off the guest room bed. I found Elements of Style and a couple other stamp sets mixed in with discontinued items. Seems like I must have gotten my piles of current and retired stamps confused. Yikes! So, Cuddles, this makes up for all the times you stole my stamping sponges, knocked projects into the recyling box, and walked across the drying Crystal Effects. It does not make up for the time you used a box of new items for your litter box, however.
So, on to the card. This was for SCS's color challenge of Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo and Baja Breeze. I added Lucky Limeade for the leaves, 'cuz I felt lucky that I still have this stamp set.

These are for a couple of challenges on SCS. Both cards use the beautiful Spice Cake designer series paper.
|This card was for today's Clean and Simple sketch challenge. Instead of having my paper strips straight across, I varied their height. There's no way I could get them all straight across! The focal point is left over from stamp club projects last week. The Island Indigo layer was made with the Big Shot and Pennant die; the Suede layer is the Lace Ribbon Border punch that I crimped and then shaped into a circle.|
|This card is for last week's Free For All Friday challenge. The fold is called a Triangle Flap Fold and it's much easier than it looks. I finally used the fabric that coordinates with Spice Cake paper. I actually cut it on my table top paper trimmer, which worked perfectly.|
|This is how the card looks open.|

This festive gift card holder was made using the Holiday Stocking Bigz die for the Big Shot.

|I made this fun card for a swap and fortunately took a picture before I mailed it, since I haven't made another one yet. Unfortunately, I let my son take the pictures, and there a bit blurry. Anyway, I adapted this fold from Lynn Pratt. Instead of having the swing out part standing completely vertical, mine is at an angle as you can see from the picture below.|
|You can also see how the Christmas tree sticks out too. I used the Pennant Punch and Pennant Parade stamp set to make the tree. The "ornaments" are punched from red and silver glimmer paper.|
