I have another sneak peek today. This time, a fall fun fold using the Painted Autumn designer series paper and stamps from “Merry Cafe”. The stamp set coordinates with the Coffee Cup framelits that were introduced in this year’s Annual Catalog. It includes a lot of fun seasonal accents for the coffee cups – for Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
When I made this card type in the past, I carefully cut out a portion of a standard card front. My upline Mindy Gray showed me a much easier way this summer. For this card, I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Garden Green. I added a 2 3/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Garden Green, scored at 4 1/4″, with adhesive only where they overlap (see picture below).
The dotted designer paper measures 4″ x 3″, and it overlaps the seam between the two green pieces, hiding it nicely. The Very Vanilla piece measures 4″ x 2″.
The striped designer paper on the front of the card measures 4″ x 2 1/2″. The oval is attached to the front panel, with adhesive only on the lower half of the oval.
Holiday Catalog products, including the Painted Autumn designer paper and “Merry Cafe” stamp set will be available starting September 1.
Have a great day!
