Stampin’ Up! being an American company, naturally celebrates Halloween and the Holiday catalogue always has a number of products specifically for this occasion. Whilst we here in Australia don’t celebrate Halloween, I still look forward to seeing what’s on offer.
It’s the accessories and embellishments that I look forward too. We have a few “tween” aged kids in my family and friends groups, that are into Gothic style everything! So when I spied the Spider web doilies and black glimmer paper, I knew they would be perfect for some birthdays this time of year.
Here is one I created on the weekend…
I love how the spider web doilies fit perfectly into the shape of the largest flower in the Floral Frames Collection framelits set. I love this shape and when accessories coordinate like this, it’s just pure heaven. Using the base card in this way, varied from the original instructions (which you can find here), but it just worked to coordinate with the spider web and I hope you’ll agree it looks pretty cool!
I just love this fancy fold and have entered it into this weeks fancy fold card challenge over at Just Add Ink (JAI#284), one of my favourite challenge blog sites. When you have a minute, don’t forget to go and check them out.
I’ve used this fancy fold for a couple different themed cards recently. Here is a special Christmas card made using the instructions as described in the original link. This uses the wonderful Winter Wonderland printed vellum paper stack and the Delicate Ornaments framelit set on that oh so yummy Red Foil Paper!
Check out my Pintrest board for more ideas using this fold.
UPDATE: This project entry received an honourable mention at Just Add Ink.
Until next time, Stamp creatively…
