Here is the card I made this month:

I wanted to make a card which looked like a FOX.  Hope you see the whimsey in making a Triangle Fold Star and the strategic placing of the off white pattern paper to mimic fox cheeks and the flourish in the red paper to resemble the nose.  The metal holder bounced some light off washing out some of the details.

Here is a closer look at the card:
The medallion in the middle is popped up with 3D Foam applied to only half of the surface (this ensures the medallion hangs over the center and allows for easier opening of the card).

Here is the card opening up:

And the inside . . .

I used the new Jubilee paper pack for the reds and the neutral from Frosted paper pack.

And if you are curious about the stand holdiing the card . . .

I made this with a tin sheet and used shelving paper in the cricut to cut a design using Art Philosophy.  Once the image was cut, I peeled off the paper backing and stuck the cut image directly to the tin and wrapped around some of the flowers.  The colored balls are backed with magnets and highlight the flowers of the cut image.  I actually use this for recipe cards but it works for photographing cards as well.

  1. Such a unique use of that card design - great job!

  2. What a cool fold for your foxy card!

  3. Very creative! Thank you for showing how to open it. I have never seen this kind of card before. Did you design it yourself?

    1. Thank you Melinda. I did not design the triangle star card (wish I had). I saw this on pinterest last year and taught it to one of my card groups. When I saw this stamp set I just thought it would look like a fox if I could figure out how to place the B&T correctly. I love things which fold and move, my team calls me the "fold freak". :0)

  4. At first I thought the stand was part of the card, but I like the fold card, it is intriguing.

  5. Wow, I am so impressed with your techniques. I'd be terrified to put a tin sheet in my Cricut. Very creative!

    1. Michelle, I cut a 12 x 12 piece of shelving paper and put it on the cricut cutting mat. Then I just dialed in the image I wanted cut, when it was cut, it was simple to remove the image from the mat, remove the backing from the image and apply it to a tin piece. I run metal through my Cuttlebug, all the time, to emboss images and now you have me thinking . . . . off to experiment!

  6. This sure is an intricate card to create! Totally outside the box.. great job!


I appreciate your feedback - it helps me grow!
