Wedding Bells!

On my way tomorrow to my cousin’s wedding, and I made this card for the happy couple.

It’s a tri-fold card, made from a double sided sheet of 12 x 12 inch paper, cut to 12 x 5.5 inches.  Then, I scored and folded it at 4.25 inches and 8.5 inches.  The short flap tucks inside.  The paper is Stampin’ Up! Share What You Love, along with solids in Mint Macaron, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla.  I left the front fairly plain to show off the pretty paper, but you can decorate this tri-fold lots of ways!  Post a picture if you give it a try.

Getting started…

I’ve been stamping for a number of years, mostly for personal use- Christmas cards, special occasions, “thinking of you” cards.  Sometimes, I sold them to friends and family, but mostly I supplied my husband, daughter, and myself with cards.  Recently, I cut back from full time to per diem work, and have been enjoying the time for crafting, including making more cards– and got thinking more about sharing my hobby with others.  So, I took the plunge, and became a Stampin’ Up demonstrator.  I hope you will follow me on my journey, and comment/share photos so we can learn from one another!

Here are some cards I made with one 12 x 12 inch sheet of designer paper, with a different pattern on each side.  The center card is a tri-fold, and the others are standard cards.  The paper is from the Share What You Love collection (how appropriate!) and the stamps are from Lovely As A Tree, Simply Wonderful, Thoughts and Prayers, and Sunshine Sayings- all from Stampin’ Up!  Let me know what you  think, or if you have any questions, and thanks for looking.
