When I found this awesome fold on Valita's Designs & Fresh Folds blog I knew it would be perfect for my Card Clubs to make.
Isn't that fold fantastic? The folded Vanilla card front is scored & folded in like a hanker-chief. And you could choose to fold the bottom corners inside too - that is a whole new look! Here's a link to her video on how to make it.
I used the Vintage Vogue stamp set & the Extra Large two-step bird punch. The Mellow Moss leaves are also punched using the 2-step Bird punch & the swirls are from the Swirls & Scribbles sizzlit. I stamped the flowers in Cameo Coral & So Saffron, cut them out & sponged them with more Cameo Coral ink. Then added a rhinestone brad & a dimensional between the flowers.
We added texture to the Mellow Moss & So Saffron layer with SU's Backgrounds 1Texturz plates & the Big Shot.
And we never seem to have enough manly cards, so this month we did a masculine birthday card.
The colors are Dusty Durango, Not Quite Navy & Sage Shadow. The stars are from the set called 'Starring You' - another one of the Free SAB choices.
Yes I did add ribbon to it, which when asking my husband opinion, he declared 'unmanly'. But it passed once I added the hemp twine with it.
