Book Mark Greeting Card

July 19, 2020

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here with a YouTube inspired project. I saw this card – book mark done by Jennifer McGuire and decided to make one putting my own spin on it. With school officially closed for the summer, reading is even more important for our kidos. Any child would love to receive this fun card that encourages reading.

The book mark simply pulls out of the front of the card and is ready for a favorite book.

Who wouldn’t love to find this on their page?

I began by cutting the Parrot from white Soft Finish Cardstock and then adding the colors (Distress Oxide Inks). I used blending brushes from Picket Fence Studio but you could do this using whatever you have. By adding the color this way you get some shading in the area that you want.

Assemble Parrot.

This is a 5.5″ square card so the base was cut 5.5″ X 11″ and then creased in the center. Using the Indented Squares die set, cut one large (5.25″ square) and two smaller ( 3.25″ square).

A square is needed for the small panel that has an opening for the book mark. The decorative panel for this card is 3.25″ so a 3.50″ panel is needed. Cut a square that is 2 times larger than the desired panel. The square we want is 3.50″ so a 7″ square is needed. Cut the 7″ square in half creating two triangles (only one is needed for this card). Score the triangle at 3.5″ on each side.

Fold the triangle into a square and add a panel to both sides.

The larger square should cut down the center in order to hold the book mark.

Add the Parrot to the front panel of the square with the opening on either side, it is shown on the left side here.

Stamp sentiment of your choice on the bottom of the card. Slide the open side of the book mark straddling the cut in the card.

Attach to card base. Decorate the inside or simply write your message.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed this fun project.

Happy 4th of July

June 21, 2020

Hello everyone,

It’s Sandy Diller with you today to share a fun, colorful and easy 4th of July easel card. I love the crisp patriotic colors of this card and hope that you do as well. One of our favorite things to do in the summer is to have friends over for a BBQ. My hubby is an excellent griller so his talents are put to work in the best way for these events.

Let’s get started on the card –

The card base for this card is 5.5″ X 11″, scored on the long side at 5.5″ and 2.75″. Shown above – cut from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Using the Stitched Hexagons, cut the largest one from red, the next size down from blue and the next sized down from white. Using the Happy Birthday Collection stamp set – stamp “Have an awesome Day”

Using the Stitched Rectangles, cut one panel from red and one panel from white. Using the Summer Sentiments stamp set – stamp “Happy 4th of July”.

Using the Backyard Barbeque die set – cut the BBQ, the flames, the cooking utensils and watermelon from colors of choice.

Fold card base on crease lines. Add largest hexagon (lining up points on crease) – glue only half of hexagon to smallest section of card base.

Add blue hexagon – turning it in opposite direction.

Add white panel to top of blue panel.

Add BBQ with flames. Optional, cut partial BBQ from contrasting color to add to legs and lid.

Assemble watermelon – add to greeting panel.

Add greeting panel (using pop up dots or foam tape) to inside lower section of card.

Add final touches and open card to standing position.

Enjoy your 4th of July and eat some barbeque,

Sandy

Happy 4th of July Shaker Card

June 21, 2018

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances Byrne here and it’s my turn to share a tutorial with you all today. With the 4th of July being less than 2 weeks away, I thought I would create a shaker card to celebrate the occasion. 

Of course, living in Australia I don’t actually celebrate the holiday, but I had fun playing with a number of the new die sets which included the 4th of July & Frame It/Stitched Rectangle die sets.
