I love the Coffee Break suite! 

I still remember looking through this catalog in April and coming across this suite!  I shrieked loud enough that people down the hall in the hotel had to of heard me! I LOVE my Starbucks!!  So this was just a pleasant surprise-even the color combos!!

So this month’s club I wanted to make a card that was a little different.  An easel card fit the bill!  And they are so easy!  The Coffee Break suite has super cute framelits that can cut out cups, tops, beans, shapes, and cupcakes!  Plus a cute whipped cream (or poop emoji) shape too!  To make an easel card you start with a 11″x 4 1/4″ piece of cardstock.  Score at 5 1/2″ and fold like a normal tent card.  Then you will take the front and fold it back on it’s self and crease.  That will be the part to place your Tear & Tape.  Then decorate a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece to place on top of the folded back part with the tape.

Here a top view and you can see the DSP strip peeking out.  I just love the beans!!

And of course I had to use Wink of Stella clear for the whipped cream!!  I made a clear lid with the Window Sheets.  And the corrugated pieces are just to stinkin’ cute!!

Fanfare Fold II

I held a Fun Folds class today and this was one of the cards we made!  I like to mix up my cards to create that WOW factor!  This one was CASED from Lyssa Zwolanek’s Blog: Song of my Heart. She has great tutorials and her cards are just beautiful!! Instructions were adapted from her blog:

  • 4.25×5.5 inch cardstock base (Whisper White shown here)
  • 4×5.25 Night of Navy mat piece
  • 4.25×11 inch cardstock strip (Night of Navy shown here)
  • Simply Scored or other scoring tools
  • Tear n Tape or other strong adhesive
  • patterned paper of your choice (Floral Boutique shown here)
  • Score the cardstock strip at 1 1/2, 5, 3, 5 1/2 and 8 inches on the long side.
  • Attach the widest panel in the center of the cardstock base, using a strong adhesive since there will be a lot of tension on this piece.

Accordion-fold the rest of the strip, pressing each fold down firmly with your Bone Folder so that it will lay as flat as possible.

Decorate each panel as desired. Stagger your embellishments so they are all seen from the front when the card is closed. Here’s the measurements for the patterned paper layers:

  • 4 x 2.75 inches (largest back panel)
  • 4 x 2.25 inches (middle inside panel)
  • 4 x 1.25 inches (outside front panel DSP)
  • 4 x 2.25 inches (neutral cardstock or plain panel for writing message)
