Card in a Box - Ornate Baby Crib Tutorial

Hi there and welcome to addINKtive designs.  I have a new Baby Crib Card to share with you.  It's the third design and is actually a combination of ideas from the first two.  This one has different inserts and is a bit easier and quicker to construct.

In June I created the 'girly pink' version for a competition that Stampin' Up! ® was running called #punchitup and have been meaning to write a tutorial ever since.  It's been in the 'draft' phase for a while but a very lovely friend and work colleague of mine recently had a baby boy, so it was a good opportunity to make another card and finish off the tutorial.

  
I already had some animal images stamped from Zoo Babies and thought adding baby Teyo's name from Little Letters Thinlits would be a nice touch. It was great to be able to construct this card from the new Thick Whisper White Card Stock; a great addition to the SU range!

  
I really love how it folds flat for posting but easily opens up to form this cute 3D card.  If you would like to purchase the instructions just click on the tab at the top of my blog - My Tutorials for Sale.


Thanks for stopping by,

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.

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!

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…
