Thanksgiving Slimline Easel Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful readers. As an ex-pat Brit now living in North Texas, Thanksgiving is not a holiday that I was familiar with until we moved here just over 19 years ago. While it is a day for food and football it is also one for quiet reflection, thinking of the things that we are thankful for and I shall be doing just that!

Today’s card in another of the popular slimline fold cards, this time an easel fold card using some of the pretty autumn themed products in the 2020 August – December mini catalog……………. and showing you how it all goes together with a video tutorial.

Thanksgiving Card – Funfold with Leaves and Pumpkins

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are in Thanksgiving week and while this year has not been the best there are things to be grateful for, starting with the health and wellbeing of family and friends, followed by having a roof over our heads and food on the table.

Today’s card features the Gather Together Stamp Set with the co-ordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. I love that stem of corn in the set as well as the cute little pumpkins and I used both on this card.

Thanksgiving Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and my card today would be perfect to send to friends and family members to celebrate this year. We might not be able to get together in person as we have in the past so a beautiful card will show them they are in our thoughts.

I have used the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set along with my very favorite Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen, to color the pumpkins, leaves and berries.

Delicate Gatefold Congratulations Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card was inspired by the Playing with Patterns Combo Ribbon Pack! ~ the combination of the Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy Ribbons was just perfect. This is the card I created for my niece’s 18th birthday earlier this month. I am not too much up on the likes and dislikes of young people reaching their majority but I know she is really not into lots of frills.

There is only a tiny bit of stamping for my greeting which comes from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

Healing Hugs ~ Get Well Soon Fun Fold

Welcome to my Corner of the World

An easy fun fold for today with a simple gatefold with a front panel, they look so impressive but so easy to do.

I used the Healing Hugs stamp set to create this ‘get well soon’ card in nice bold Night of Navy and Mango Melody colors. I think by simply changing out the greeting you could use this design for thank you, birthday or simply ‘just because’!

Center-Step Card with Prized Peony Suite ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I so love fancy/fun fold cards, even after nearly 10 years as a demonstrator I still am in awe on what you can do with a piece of card stock!! Center-Step cards have been around for a considerable while but I think it is always nice to dust it off and update it with new colors and products.

The Peony Garden Suite of products have been very popular since its release in June, I have used the 3D peony as the as my focal point and paired it with Daffodil Delight and Cinnamon Cider Card.

Forever Greenery Three Block Pop-Up Card – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a really lovely fun fold – it is so impressive but surprisingly easy to make, I have made a video tutorial to help you make one as well.

This fun fold is quite popular but most of the examples I found used 12 x 12 card and needed a custom envelope, which here in the US would have required additional postage – so I footled around to design one that uses a sheet of 11 x 8 1/2 and will fit into the regular 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 envelope!
