Meeting Make and Takes

I cased a card  from a swap at convention designed by Cheryl Lafore. 

She did a beautiful job with the color combo—Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Naturals Ivory.

Background design done with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder #120175  $7.95   then sponged with choc. chip ink.

Okay, finally, a card that I designed.  Uses the sneak peek hostess set, Peaceful Season, that Stampin’ Up! gave to us at convention.  Colors: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Real Red and Sahara Sand.  Technique: Poppin’ Pastels (I stamped the holly image with versamark ink, then used sponge daubers to dab pastels onto the wet image—the color just pops!)

Here’s the fun fold to this card:

Can you give measurements, where to score and size of outer decorated front flap? Thanks!

Hi Debbie, I guess that would be helpful wouldn't it? The flap is 5 1/4" X 3 1/2". It is scored on the long side at 1 inch--that's the piece that will stick under the inside Vanilla piece to hold it in place. Then the layers on that are just each an 1/8" less (vanilla 4 1/8" X 3 3/8"; the crumb cake piece is 4 X 3 1/4")
