Love Note Bird Shaker Card

Spellbinders Love Note Bird-Tunnel Scapes-Out and About-Hello Smile-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Spellbinders Out and About Love Note Bird Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  I spent a fun afternoon creating this cheery Spellbinders Out and About Love Note Bird Shaker Card.  Always a fan of a bird themed project, I created a fun shaker window with the new Tunnel Scape Clouds Dies.

TIP:  Create lots of dimension by placing foam tape between your tunnel layers.  Then add foam tape to the back of  your Love Note Bird before adhering it to the shaker window.

The gold “Hello” sentiment is part of the new Out and About Collection., too.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you will definitely want to take a look.  There are a couple more fun dies that I want to add to my stash!

A Peek Inside

Spellbinders Fern and Indigo Cardstock are the perfect match for papers from the Bayfair Paper  collection.  Green and navy is a bold color combination that I really enjoy!

TIP:  Use washi tape to hold a packet of wildflower seeds in place on the top half of the card.

TIP:  Create a chic and functional sentiment panel by embossing the top of a 4″ x 6″ piece of white cardstock with the Efflorescent Flora 3D embossing folder.  Then make the design pop by brushing lightly with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

The pocket also holds a little Tea Wallet filled with English Breakfast Tea and a packet of honey crystals.

I want to make more of these cute Love Note Birds…maybe in a note card set.  That would make a great gift, wouldn’t it?

Fresh and Fabulous Bayfair Z Fold Card

Spellbinders Bayfair Collection-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Fresh and Fabulous Bayfair Z Fold Card from Spellbinders

Hello, Friends!  I’m back today with another Fresh and Fabulous Bayfair Z Fold Card using goodies from my Spellbinders stash.  I wanted to show how versatile this lovely collection is, and give you instructions for one of the easiest fancy fold card bases ever!

The more I use this collection, the more I like it!  Today I’m showing off the pretty feminine elements from the collection.  If you missed the Fancy Fold Beach Shaker Card (with measurements and basic instructions) or the full tutorial for the Beach Themed Slimline Folio, just click on the links and they will magically appear.

TIP:  Use a die cut postage stamp frame to draw the eye to smaller focal images.  First, die cut the frame (with the insert in place) .  Then back the frame with 1/8″ foam tape.  Now create your collage inside the elevated frame.  The Amazing Paper Grace Postage Stamp Frame I used on this project is no longer available, but Spellbinders has released a new Postage Labe and Tag Die Set with this Bayfair Release.  I’ll link to that below this post.

Easy Peasy Z Fold Card Base

 

If you are looking for a quick and easy fancy fold card base, search no more.  It doesn’t get ay easier than the Z-Fold Card.  Here’s how I made this  Z-Fold Card Base.

  • First, cut a 6″ x 12″ panel of white cardstock.
  • Then score from left to right at 3 1/2″ and 7″.
  • Now fold the 3 1/2″ score line as a mountain fold.
  • Next fold the 7 ” score line as a valley fold.
  • Line the panels with (2) 3 3/8″ x 6 7/8″ and (1) 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ of pink cardstock.
  • Then line with slightly smaller panels of patterned paper.
  • Create a pocket with a 6″ x 2 1/2″ panel of pink stripe patterned paper. Score 1/2″ flaps on side and bottom, trim out the corners, fold and adhere.

See?  Easy Peasy!

Magnetic Secret Message and Sentiment Panel

Secret messages are always fun, so I added one to the center of my card base.  You can use the inside panel from the Postage Stamp Frame as the base.  Cut a panel of white cardstock that is 1/2″ taller, score a flap, adhere behind the panel and then line with patterned paper. Place magnets on the back of the secret message and under the patterned paper on the inside.  Add a butterfly pull tap so the recipient will know to open the secret message.

That’s all for me today, friends.  I hope you enjoyed this post, and feel inspired to go make something beautiful.

Spellbinders Bayfair Fancy Fold Shaker Card

Step Out Fancy Fold Card Design

Spellbinders Bayfair Paper Collection-Buttons-Ephemera-Shaker Card-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

Y’all know how much I enjoy making fancy fold cards.  It took me about a half a second to decide to use this collection of papers, ephemera and embellishments on a fancy fold card base.  I wanted more room to spread out than a typical step out card base allowed, so I kind of made up my own measurements to fit my vision for this card.  Here’s what i did:

  • First, cut a 12″ x 5″ panel of white cardstock.
  • Next, score the paper at 3 1/2″, 7″ and 10 1/2″.  Don’t fold yet!  (You’ll have a 1 1/2″ short flap on the right hand side of the card base.  Don’t worry about that.  It’s part of the plan.  Stick with me, and it will all come round right.
  • Place the 5″ side of your scored card base on the rail of your precision trimmer.  Line your blade up at 2 1/2″ and cut from the 3″ score line to the 9″ score line.
  • Fold the 3″ score line as a mountain fold.
  • Then fold the top half of the 6″ score line as a valley fold.  Now fold the top of the 9″ score line as a mountain.
  • Next fold the bottom half of the 6″ score line as a mountain fold. Then fold the bottom half of the 9″ score line as a valley.  Fold the card and crease.
  • Now cut a 3 1/2″ x 5″ panel from the off cut of the same white cardstock and adhere it just to the right of the 9″ Score line.
  • From left to right you will have the following:  3 1/2″ x 5″ panel; (2) 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ panels; 2 more 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ panels; then a 3 1/2″ x 5″ panel.
The Shaker Element

Die cut the Coastal Escape View dies from gold mirror cardstock.  Then adhere acetate and foam strips to the back to make the shaker window.  Fill with sequins and beads and embellish with the Bayview ephemera pack.

TIP:  Fussy cut words from the 12×12 paper pack and add to the card as sentiments.

Dressing up the inside panels of the card with ephemera is lots of fun.  My lovely blue whale was just a tiny bit too long for the panel, so I cut off his tail and added it to the adjacent panel.  I actually really like the way this looks.

Pocket and Tag

Create a pocket on the right hand panel, then fill it with a pretty die cut tag (linked below).  The base layer of this tag is cut from mirror cardstock.  Then I die cut the “Create a Decorative Tag” using patterned paper and the inset dies to go over the top.  Then write a simple sentiment on white cardstock and add some beachy charms and gold string and you’re all done!

I added  a panel of blank white cardstock to the back of the card so there’s a place to add a  note.

You’ll see more of this pretty collection and a really fun folio project in my Wonderful Wednesday Wildcard tutorial tomorrow.  Hope to see you there!
