ICS Blog Hop...Christmas is Coming!

ICS header

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop.  This blog hop goes live on the second Tuesday of the month.  Every month there is a theme for the hop  and this month the theme is, Christmas Is Coming.   Enjoy the hop and I hope it will inspire you!

I love the Words of Cheer bundle.  It has  great sentiments,  a big focal image, and lovely dies including 2 word dies. The beautiful foliage arrangement is a great one to color.  I used Stampin' Blends in Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight.  The image was cut out using the dies and is on one of the Scalloped Contour dies.  Two designs from the  Heartwarming Hugs DSP were used for the front of the card.  The Heartwarming Hugs DSP is a returning favorite and is rich with  patterns that mix and match.

This card style is one of my current favorites.  You start with a 8-1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock and score it in quarters (4-1/4 along the 8-1/2" side and 5-1/2" along the 11" side) and then cut it on the diagonal.  You get 2 card bases.  The 2 patterns of DSP are cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and then cut on the diagonal.  

Here is the 2nd card I made using the other half of the cardstock and the DSP.

Yes, it looks very similar except I positioned the foliage at the bottom corner instead of the top corner.

I also glued the bottom edge of the right triangle to create a pocket.  This is a great place for a gift card or to insert a photo.

Beautiful card Sharon. I think I've only created one card in the past with a fold like that. Thanks for sharing the inspiration reminder.
