I’m thinking some of those Jolly Rancher Watermelon candies inside…

Last project, I actually came up with myself…sort of.  I actually copied an idea from My Paper Pumpkin

I really liked the way the card slides into the pocket so I made this to go with the Watermelon theme:

Wild About Flowers

My card today features 2-step stamping!  The new stamp set, Wild About Flowers, allows you to stamp 2 stamps that make 1 image.  Simple & pretty!

The fold was easy to do.  You just cut your cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″.  Then score the front in half at 2 3/4″.  It’s called a “Joy Fold”.

Here’s what it looks like when you open it.

I think it works well to glue your inside first (after stamping) and then line up the front oval to go over it.

I used Wild Wasabi Seam Binding on this next one.  Which one do you like best?

Createwithcheryl Wild About FlowersThe sentiment is from Trust God Stamp Set.

Here’s a picture from the top so you can see how it opens:

Tunnel Card Fun Fold

I’ve always wanted to learn to make a “tunnel card”, so I signed up for a swap at Convention called “Fun Folds”.  I made my first tunnel card and discovered it’s really simple!!

Here’s a picture of the front of the card.  Love the owl hanging on by his toes!
