Hello, Have we got a fun challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls. Lisa is our hostess and she asked for us to make a tri-fold card for Wild card Week. If you know me, I rarely make a card that is not your typical A2 size, so this was a good challenge for me. It certainly pushed me to do something different and shock my followers. LOL I did some Pinterest browsing and I stumbled upon a barn-door fold and decided to turn “My Barn” sideways.
Here are the pics of the inside!
Card Details: I didn’t give my Spellbinders bunny much love at Easter time so I thought I would bring him out once again. The clouds and balloon come from that same die set as well. The Grass is from MFT and the butterfly is from Sizzix and fussy cut. The inside greeting is from Close to My Heart and it’s an oldie but a goodie. I did use a dotted EF on my clouds.
Now, you have to come to Just Us Girls and check out all the various folds from the DT and I hope you will be brave like me and give a Tri-fold card a try! I really did enjoy the process. Before I go I want to tell Mac thanks for being an amazing guest at JUGS! It was such a delight having you along!
Take care and enjoy your day and hopefully, you will find some time to be creative! Nanc’
Over at Just Us Girls today’s word challenge is Spring and it’s brought to you by Sharyn. Super idea Sharyn, as that leaves things pretty wide open! I am still in the Easter mode and wanted to share with you the other two cards we made at my crafty get together at my house a couple of weeks ago. Both cards were a starting point from cards I saw over at Pinterest and I will include them at the end of my post. The above card as you can see has two pieces of marbleized paper. One of the friends had the brilliant idea to add the stems of grass peeking through….and I loved it so I went back an added it to my original card too. It’s the coolest grass die cut from Impression Obsession Stamps. ( io stamps) I made sure each one of the eggs had some sort of dry embossing on them. The scalloped grass and button is from MFT. The sentiment is something I picked up at Michaels. The bow is a die from my school. The butterfly is SU.
The card below is the other card we made that had nothing to do with the marbleized paper we made, but I needed something for the girls to start with while they waited their turn to marbleize, or while waiting for the papers to dry. Isn’t the pink pom pom so cute? I generated the sentiment on the computer, thinking this way someone could use this for something besides Easter if they wanted to. The ears were made with the SU blossom punch, thank god I found a use for it…lord knows I haven’t used it to assemble any flowers yet. LOL The rest is pretty self explanatory. Die cuts, punches, distressing, and some pop dots. The tilted panel is a stitched rectangle from MFT.
Hope you come on over to Just Us Girls and help us welcome our New Guest Designer Kathy and see what else the rest of the team has done with this challenge. Remember if your chosen as our Chic of the Week you will be in the running as a possible future Guest Designer as well. Good Luck! Nanc’
