Now for today's projects. 


To kick of this week's event we have not one but two of the Scor-pal designers sharing projects with you! We're sure you'll find something to love now matter what your style.




Our first project comes from Scor-pal designer Gini Cagle.



I recently saw a tutorial for a very cool shaped/ folded card and have been waiting for just the right moment to try it out. The tutorial that I used was from Marianne Skjelstad’s blog. She didn’t have a name for this fold, but I thought that a wing-fold shaped card was a good description. The Scor-pal Design Team got to play with products from Momenta this week – and I used papers from one of the Momenta Pyramid Pads. This particular pad coordinates with the Butterfly Garden line.

Here's how to make the card:

First, cut your paper 6” x 11 ¾”. Using your Scor-pal, score at 3 ¼”, 5”, 6 ¾”, and 8 ½”. 
 Fold as shown.

Trace the shape that you want to use for your wing on the two outer panels of the card, and cut to shape. For my card, I traced the outside of my Cheery Lynn Designs Oval Doily Stacker One die, so that it would be slightly larger than my die cut. Ink the edges and add decorative die cuts, and patterned paper panels.



I used a smaller die from the same set for my front panel and decorated it with matching stickers from Momenta.  Below is the card with both a side view and folded into closed position.

Next up we have Scor-pal Designer Diane Zechman. 

Hi friends! Today I have 2 different projects to share using the same Kaleidoscope papers and stickers. First up I have a 12 x 12 scrap page. As you may know, I am not a scrapper but I am slowly trying my hand at it. The sticker at the bottom says "Smile and the world smiles with you". So true!

 


This is an old photo of my DD when she was little...love that grin! All dressed up but no swimsuit on. lol. If you look closely through the panes in the door, there's a little kiddie pool outside...all that we had at the time! 






I used those panes of glass as inspiration to make a diagonal embossed background of 1" squares on the top of the page. It was very easy to create with the Scor-PalHere's a close up of the scoring and some random stitching on my sewing machine. I love the puffy scalloped border sticker and I especially love the layered flower sticker I used. Super cute! 



For the next project, I went in a different direction and made 2 friendship cards. The same Kaleidoscope papers and stickers were used, along with the same green thread for stitching. I also added some Stickles to the stickers and stuck on a few sticky-back rhinestones. (say that a few times!)


The cards are 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 4 1/4 and 8 1/2 to create a pocket inside. (Exactly like the Gift Card / Money pocket cards I made... except this time it holds a little pull-out tag).


Here's the inside. The flap is made into a pocket with Scor-Tape on the top and bottom edges. As you can see, I added more Momenta stickers and papers to the inside.
Scrap page: paper- Momenta Kaleidoscope, Bazzill White; accessories- Scor-Pal, Momenta Kaleidoscope stickers, 3/4" square punch, sewing machine. cards: paper- Momenta Kaleidoscope, White, SU! Bermuda Bay; accessories- Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, Momenta Kaleidoscope stickers, 1 3/8" circle punch, sewing machine, Martha Stewart Floral Lace Edge punch, Stickles, gemstones.

That wing fold card is very intricate-appearing, and is another card to be CASED. The diagonal scorlines on the on the middle layout was definitely put to good use!

Auntie Em said...

What great projects! Gini, I love your wing card. What a great idea to use the spellbinder shape for the wings and add the pretty lacy shape over.
Diane, I thought this was a card when I saw the little peek on your blog. But it's such a fun background for a LO! I love the title in the squares too. The cards with the little pull out tabs and pockets are a lovely way to cheer someone up.
Thanks for sharing all the fun ideas! :)

Auntie Em said...

I love the colors you used on your wing-fold card, it's so peaceful looking. I'm having a hard time visualizing exactly how it folds up so I guess I'm just going to have to make one. Thanks for the tutorial and link. I also liked on FB.
