It's time for a new challenge over at the Creative Creases blog, and I'm honored to be a guest designer! It's always anything goes with a fun fold over at Creative Creases, so I hope you will join in the fun and share your fun fold projects here: https://wp.me/p4bS0N-bxr.
I am sharing a Valentine's Day card this time, and my Valentine's Day cards this year feature a mushroom theme. I found some darling digital mushroom paper at the Silhouette Design Store and used it to fill in the heart swing card base which is also a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. I designed a print and cut for the sentiments using my Silhouette Design Studio software and used a Polkadoodles pre-colored digi stamp with a cute hedgehog sitting with some mushrooms that I sized to fit in the first heart. I printed out 180 of each of the elements for the card and then began glueing all the parts together and folding all the score lines. My Silhouette Cameo 4 is a workhorse and did a great job cutting out all the parts. My mom sends out 150 cards to shuts ins, friends, people from her church, etc. for most holidays as a ministry, and I in addition to her cards, I made some extras to send to the shut ins at my church and some friends and family members. I plan to do another set using that darling little hedgehog for my Bible Study Fellowship students. Polkadoodles has some of the cutest digi stamps!
For the envelope flaps, I used a SU! sentiment and heart stamp from the Share A Milkshake bundle and added another heart stamp from my stash. I used my MISTI to stamp out all the envelopes. I love being able to restamp if I don't get a good impression the first time.
Here's a look at what the card bases and pieces looked like before the bases were folded and the elements were adhered:
