I wanted to do something a little different with my card. Spring is usually so much about flowers and I just love hearing all of the birds this time of year. Plus baby birds hatching is about the cutest thing ever!

Here is my card:

Fancy Fold Friday – 4 way card

Happy Friday Friends! I am excited to share a fun card with you. Today at SSInkspiration we are showing off some fun fold cards. I love fun folds and this card was something totally outside of my comfort zone.

FancyFold Friday Card

I found this technique at Splitcoast Stampers last month and I knew I had to try it. I have to admit that it took more than 1 try to get my card to line up well and as much as I wanted to offer this next month for technique class I think there is way too much of a learning curve for a class setting. I love the spinning center piece on this card and I think I would make this again, using different shapes each time to keep things interesting. It’s a great technique to make a card for a special occasion. I hope that you will try it sometime!

Thank you for stopping by today. Please leave me some blog love in the form of a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post. I am posting between 3-5 times a week now – tons of good inspiration!

One Layer Challenge

Happy Monday Friends! I was able to squeeze in the weekly challenge over at Stampin’ Royalty this weekend and I wanted to share it with you. This week we made one layer cards. The new Swirly Bird set was just what I needed to make this quick and easy card!

I am loving the new In Colors – especially Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo. This set has such a variety of elements included that it is going to be showcased again and again. I love that it can be used on it’s own as I did here, or with the coordinating thinlits to step things up a notch.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I would love to know what you think of my card and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!
