For one day I'm skipping doing a CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) of last weekend's blog hop and instead copying an idea from a card that I received from a friend – who also happens to be one of my downline!
This card has basically the same fold as Wednesday's card, but the flap fold is at the bottom of the card for this project and it was at the top of the card in Wednesday's. There is a reason for this and that happens to be because I made this card for a challenge. Yes, it's Friday so this must be time for the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge! Here's the challenge card and it felt just like the card that Dana gave me – so off I went with the idea!
I've pretty much included everything that was called for in the sketch. Imagine that! I even used the Labels Collection Framelits, as shown in the sketch, along with the Chevron Border Punch which has been in the last two Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogs, and which will also be featured in the coming 2014-15 Annual Catalog.
I made my card a landscape style card which is really the only way I could get a card with that tab fold and still use just one piece of cardstock.
The Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper set that I used for the card is featured in the Celebrate the Everyday catalog, but Sunday (June 1st) is the last day to purchase from that catalog. So, if you want the paper, now's the time to buy it! You can get it directly from me with just a couple of clicks, starting with a click on the picture of the paper at this end of this post! I adhered just the one sheet to the front of the Tangerine Tango Cardstock card base.
I also used two pieces of Washi Tape from the Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi Tape set. That's in the Celebrate the Everyday catalog, but the set is NOT retiring. But it does go so well with that paper!
Instead of a button, I used one of the retiring In Color Boutique Details, in the Baked Brown Sugar color, which is a color in the Designer Series Paper set that I used.
Finally I'm sure you noticed the strip of paper at the bottom of the card. That's a "belly band" that I used to keep the card closed. A small tab such as the one on this card will not stay closed on its own. But then, when the card is opened, it can stand on the tab and stays put pretty well! I think that Chevron Border looks very nice as a stand for the card!
The greeting is from the Four You Stamp Set. Oh, and did you notice that I used the Chevron Embossing Folder on the piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock that I used as a mat for the greeting? That was a fun accent for the Chevron punch!
