MIU # 46 - February - Fancy Folds

 Hello there!  It's time for another wonderful challenge over on the Mix It Up blog.  Our theme this month is Fancy folds.  

I decided to make a Valentine card using the Tri-Fold Window fancy fold.  I recently watched a Jennifer McGuire utube on this style.  She was using stamps and die sets.  I've just used a really great, bold letter die set from Tim Holtz.

My paper is 4" x 12".  I scored it at 4" and 8".  I kept it really simple.  A little tip:  Add your pretty paper to the front before you die cut or you'll never get it lined up.  I learned the hard way.  LOL!




Supplies:

Authentique - Sweetheart collection
Tim Holtz - Alphanumeric Shadow Upper -dies
Cricut Cuttlebug - Hugs & Kisses embossing folder
Coco & Reno- xoxo die

CCAYR - January - Starts with 'A' or 'B'

 Hello there!  Happy New Year!  It's time for another wonderful challenge over on the Christmas Crafts All Year Round blog.  Our theme this month is Starts with 'A' or 'B'.  

It was my first time to play with the Tim Holtz Deck the Halls dies.  I'm not going to lie-- it was a challenge.  You will need 3 shades of red for the ribbon and 3 shades of green for the leaves.  You also need to cut two of everything for the leaves to end up with the four leaves like I have it here.  And also you will need to cut the berry stems more than once and the berries more than once.  


Supplies:
Tim Holtz - Stacked Deckle die
Tim Holtz - Deck the Halls, Colorize die
Tim Holtz - Holiday Words - Script
My Mind's Eye - Cozy Christmas - book paper
Glossy Accents + Distress Stickles - on berries
pop dots
