Simple Fun Fold Cards ~ w/ Hold on to Hope Bundle

____________________________________________

Hi Everyone,

This week I will be sharing 3 simple fun fold cards with you. I have had a lot of fun learning how to make these and am surprised how very easy they actually are.

A couple of weeks ago I shared 3 other projects using the “Hold on to Hope” stamp & die bundle from Stampin’ Up!® I will link to those three posts at the end of this post just in case you missed them.

For this first card I have is a super simple design. I will list all measurements and that way you can easily create one of your own.

Card Stock Cut and Score Measurements:

Base Card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ ~ Scored at 3″ & 7 1/4″ ~ Elegant Eggplant

Front Panel Piece 1 (The larger one) is  2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ ~ Perfect Plum

Front Panel Piece 2 (The smaller one) is 1″ x 5 1/4″ ~ Perfect Plum

Front Focal Piece ~ 3″ x4 1/4″ ~ Elegant Eggplant

Front Focal Piece ~ 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ ~ Whisper White

For the focal point I have used the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set along with the Hold on to Hope Bundle. I cut two of the cross dies in this set. Once with glimmer paper using the solid shaped cross die and the detailed top portion is cut from Silver Metallic Paper. It is so shinny!! Anything with blind must be good huh?

Hold On To Hope ~ Midweek Clean & Simple Card


Just a quick post today as I know everyone is busy trying to get through their weeks. These cards are PERFECT when you want to get a little crafting in but you just don’t have a whole lot of time.

The Hold On To Hope bundle is timeless. This set was designed by Brandy Cox and this card is actually cased from her as well. The simplistic design is perfect for my CAS Wednesday post so thank you Brandy for your inspiration.

This card is simply made from paper and ink. There are no embellishments or bling. Just simple stamping using the Hold On To Hope stamp set.  This card can be completed in about 5-10 minutes. Perfect for Midweek!

 

 

Isn’t the bundle breathtaking? I hope you were also inspired today. Happy Stampin’ ®

Hold On To Hope ~ Happy Birthday to My Husband!!!


 

Welcome Back Stampers!!!

This week we will be focusing on the stunning Million Dollar set designed by Brandy Cox. I think this is probably my Favorite set in the Spring Occasions Catalog. It is called “Hold On To Hope”

My husband and I have been through so much over the years (25th Wedding Anniversary will be May 19, 2018) and today is his BIRTHDAY! So Happy Birthday to my husband. We live on faith now so celebrating your day with God in our marriage is super precious to me.

Randy, You are my favorite Remarkable Creation. Thank you for sharing your life with God and me. I love you baby!

This beautiful bundle has an amazing coordinating set of dies along with some beautiful sentiments. The design possibilities are endless. For this card I chose to use the Wood Textures Paper Stack because I wanted this to be a masculine card. For the sentiments I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Then used two of the dies from the bundle and a small heart gold enamel heart in the center of the cross. Isn’t the top layer stunning?

Thank you for stopping by today. I will have a Clean & Simple card design to share on Wednesday followed by a stepped up card on Friday. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Melanie
