Triple Celebration

A Card for a Triple Celebration


This card was made for friends who have a triple reason to celebrate this year -
  • Their 40th Wedding Anniversary
  • A 60th Birthday
  • A 65th Birthday
3 milestones in one year!

I used the colour palette to match the beautiful new 'Everyday Enchantment' DSP. All products are SU except for the birds (Martha Stewart punch), Tim Holtz Alterations, Carnivale Die for the letters/numbers and the card was from a pack of pre-folded centre step cards.

PS: Here's a link to a gorgeous card that was inspired by my Triple Celebration Card: https://me35.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/birthday-girl/ It is stunning!

Thanks for stopping by,

Wonderful! Love the little birds, butterflies, flowers and stars - such sweet embellishments. Wow - a ready-to-assemble centre step card? That sounds right up my alley! This is a beautiful card to help your friends celebrate all their milestone occasions, Bron.

Wow you did a fabulous job to incorporate all three celebrations in one card. Awesome!

Love the idea of pre folded cards - no mistakes in that.

Definitely spectacular Bron! The mix of prints, pennants & embellies is wonderful. The centre step card works perfectly to showcase all those milestones. :)

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink


1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.


This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.


2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.


3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.


4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).


5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
