Pretty Pumpkin Pinwheel Thanksgiving Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love a fun fold card and I have a personal mission to ensure I used my decorative paper in my card making. Today’s card meets both of those plus I have a lovely thanksgiving card as a result, plus it will fit into a standard 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 envelope for easy posting!

I have also used several techniques that I have used before, coloring with Stampin’ Blends and heat embossing – if you scroll down a little you will see links to post and videos I have made about those……. enjoy!

Quick and Easy Z-fun fold card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This time next week it will be Christmas Day!!! After a year of everything being turned on its head I am determined to hold onto some of my Christmas traditions, I have my trees decorated, lights on the outside of the house and a traditional (English) Christmas Lunch planned!

But sometimes I like a little ‘non-tradition’ to creep in, so I have a tree in my hall that is decorated in purples and pinks and chose to use similar colors for today’s card, Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose, to create this ‘lazy Z fold card’

Forever Fern ~ Fun Fold

Welcome back to my corner of the world

When I saw that Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon had been carried over to the Annual Catalog I was so thrilled, it is 1/4 wide, has sparkly bits in it and ties the most scrummy bows!  As so often happens with me it was the starting point for today’s card.

I also used the Forever Fern Stamp Set again, this time with two shades of blue ( who said leaves had to be green?) This has the most wonderful variety of leaf images, so easy to build up a great design.
