A few people have asked how to create the funky folded card design that I use a lot. Here is a video that Sally and I did awhile back. Excuse the pajamas.
And here is another card with that design. I may have shared it before – sorry – but it is a good example of the fun you can have with this fold. I think Sally was the originator of the fold, but not sure.
They currently have a permanent spot within arm's reach on my counter. I lovey them. I do believe they are my bestest friends at the moment.
In the past, I have had a hard time using BG papers. I buy them. I hoard them. I love them. But when it comes to papers with distress, I simply freeze. I don't know how to use them, as much as I love them. Ask Jana – this is the truth.
But then, I met Mr. 6×6 Paper Pads. These have BG's fab patterns on a smaller scale. And they are so easy to use. They are incredible.
My faves? Here they are…
Bonus: many of them are 20% off at 2peas right now! Woohoo. Click on them to be linked.
Here is a card I did today using some of the BG goodness. It was inspired by THIS card by Renee Camacho.
A card that holds a gift card. Would that be called a Gift Card Card? Not sure what to call it, but I love to make them.
Basically, the gift card slides between that blue piece and the white piece. The only thing holding these pieces together is the sewing at the top and bottom. Another tip: I used pop dots under the clear tag for a shadow-box look… just some fun dimension.
We are getting our electricity re-worked this week (old house = aluminum wiring = fire hazard = expensive fix), so I am without power off and on. But I wanted to post quickly while I had the chance to let you know about a video I have done.
