Here is the card closed.  It featuring the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper that is a free item during Sale-a-Bration or while supplies last.  I used my Aqua Painter with the Watermelon Wonder, Pear Pizzaz and Wild Wasabi to color the flowers and leaves in.

The flower center are highlighted with the Gold Wink of Stella and the flowers themselves with the Clear Wink of Stella.

The Detail Dragonfly Framelits Dies were used to highlight the Belly Band.

Peek-a-Boo Card

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Peek-a-Boo Card.  I am thinking this card is more of a creative cut then a creative fold.  But whatever I call it, it is just so cute with the adorable Hay Chick Stamp.


I used the technique of inking my Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that I showed you on Friday.  If you missed that technique here is the link to that video.


Have you noticed that on my recent videos there is an "i" in the upper right corner?  So excited about this.  Thanks to a dear friend, France Martin, she has helped me figure out how to do this.  So now when you are watching one of my videos, and want to get more information you click on the "i" and it will take you directly to my blog post about that video.  No more search to find where the blog post is on my blog.  How cool is that?  So thanks France.

Have you tried the Shimmery White Card Stock for water coloring?  Whether you are using the Blender Pens or the Aqua Painter you will find that the Shimmery White Card Sock gives a really nice surface to work on.

Here are the sizes of Card Stock I used:

  • 4 1/4" x 7 3/4"  Real Red Card Stock Scored at the 5 1/2" mark
  • 2 pieces of 1 7/8" x 4" Crumb Cake Card Stock
  • 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" Real Red Card Stock
  • Small piece of Shimmery White Card for the Stitched Oval
  • Small pies of Basic Black for the Oval Background

Dutch Door Video

#succulent #creativefold #lindabauwin

In today's video, I use the beautiful succulent that I made in a video last Friday.  If you missed that video, you can check it out here. I am calling today's creative fold a Dutch Door Opening Card.  Not sure that is the correct name but that is what we will call it.  When it is closed it looks like a regular card.  But when it is open it does open like Dutch Doors.

#dutchdoor #lindabauwin

This is a very simple to make creative fold.  I did some collage stamping wit the Timeless Textures and the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Sets.  Both of these stamp sets make collage stamping a breeze.  I did tone on tone and I think that helps with the Vintage Look.  This is the technique that I used on the gift boxes from a couple weeks ago and the Petite Cafe Bag a few days ago.

Sizes of Card Stock Used for This Card:

Creative Fold Video

#sodetailedthinlits #lindabauwin

Did you see how I made this beautiful belly band in my video on Friday?  I used the So Detailed Thinlits Dies and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies. Today I will use this belly band on my creative fold card.

#shuttercard #lindabauwin

Here is the front of the card with the belly band on.  I used the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper along with the Sahara Sand Card Stock.  The Gold Foil Butterfly just shines on the front of the card.  

#shuttercard #lindabauwin o

Here is the card opened.  When you watch the video you will see how the card goes together.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits and you want to make sure you use the Tear-n-Tape on the pieces of card stock for the shutter closure, but use Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue for the inside greeting of the shutter.

Here are the measurements for this card:

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Sahara Sand Card Stock scored at 2 1/8" along the 8 1/2" side to form a gate fold card
  • 2 pieces 2" x 5 3/8" of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper
  • 2 pieces 3 1/2" x 4" Sahara Sand Card Stock scored along the 4" side at 1/2" watch video for cutting the ends of these two pieces for your shutter opening
  • 3" x 5 3/8" Sahara Sand Card Stock
  • 3" x 5 3/8" Falling in Love Designer Series Paper

Time for a Creative Fold Video

#creativefold #storybook #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Storybook Fold with lots of fun new products from the Occasions Catalog. On the front of the card I used the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies. These dies are part of a product bundle that includes the Special Reason Stamp Set.  This bundle will be featured in my March Stamp of the Month Kit, so stay tune.

Notice the stem it is a negative image. Think that is what is so need about the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies, they give you another look.  Another favorite die in the Occasion Catalog that is so easy to miss, is the Timeless Tags Framelits Dies.  That is where the little butterflies come from.  That die can be used as a negative image also.

#creativefold #specialreason #lindabauwin

The inside of the card features more of the Stylish Stems and Timeless Tags Framelits Dies along with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and the beautiful Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.

In the video, I show you how to cut and score to get the Storybook look.  But here are the measurements of the card stock:

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Sahara Sand Card Stock
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Old Olive Card Stock
  • 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Sahara Sand Card Stock
  • 2 pieces Sahara Sand that measure 7/8" x 2"
  • 2 pieces that measure 2 1/8" x 3 1/4"
  • 5 3/8" x 8 1/2' Falling in Love Designer Series Paper

All the cutting and score of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper is explained in the video.  Want to give a shout out to dear friend France Martin who inspired this card with her Christmas Card to me.  Thanks France.



Twisted Pop-Up Card Video

#twistedpopup #lindabauwin inside

Why did I wait so long to do this creative fold?  Because I felt it was too difficult.  Boy was I wrong.  Once you get the basics down it is an easy creative fold as you will see by the video below.

#twistedpopup #creativefold #lindabauwin

I started with a piece of Smoky Slate that measured 4 1/4" x 11" and it's important to decorate the front first.  I used the beautiful Lift Me Up Bundle.  This bundle matches the Carried Away Designer Series Paper which is a free item with a $50 order until March 31, or while supplies last, during Sale-a-Bration.

To make the pop-up part of the card you need a piece of card stock that measures 3" x 8".  You will score down the center on both ides at 4" on the long side and 1 1/2" on the short side.  Mark at the 2 1/2" from each corner with a pencil, on the top and bottom edge of card stock.

You will score an "X" from mark to mark.  The center of the "X" should match the center of the card stock where the other score lines intersect.  Watch the video as it will help you, this is what scared me, but it is very simple.  Just remember to burnish your score line well.  You will mark 2 1/8" in the center fold of your card and that is where this pop-up goes.

To cover up Pop-up cut to piece of designer series paper that measure 4" x 5 1/4".  Mark at the 2" on the short side and 2" down on each side.  You will cut a triangle to fit inside the card and cover up the center.

The focus piece is 3 3/4" x 11" score in center at 5 1/2" and at 2 3/4" from each end.  This will fold like a "W".  You need 4-2 1/2" x 3 1/2" panels for the focus piece.

To assemble the card, center the booklet at the top of the open card, ends upward just inside the edge, with the back page facing up.  Apply Adhesive to the Pop-Up Mechanism, as show in the video.
