This is a card I made for a friend. I found a similar card here on Tosh's Blog . It looks more difficult than it is. It takes some measuring, some cutting and some folding. I used scrapbook paper from my stash. The Friendship stamp is from Stampin' UP! and the sentiment stamp is by Stampabillities. I punched some of the flowers and others are from the Pretties kit by Stampin' UP!

I made this for a friend. I used an empty Altoid tin. (Love my Altoid's!) It was perfect to put a small gift in. It is covered in Rose Red and Close to Cocoa. Stamps - Looks Like Spring and Pocket Silhouettes by Stampin' UP! A friend on one of my Yahoo groups suggested using sand paper to smooth the edges of the cardstock so the fit perfectly up against the edges. I was amazed at how much easier this one tip made making this project. I was really happy with it when I was done. Thanks for looking.

My favorite color Purple(s). So, I chose it for this monochromatic card. The stamps are from Pocket Silhouettes, Sweet Dreams and Beyond the Basics by Stampin' UP! Lovely Lilac is the color I used and white as my neutral. The ribbon is from my stash. Thanks for looking!

I really like how this card turned out. I cased the layout from someone on Splitcoast Stampers, but I'm sorry I didn't save the post or the name of the artist. Thank you if it was you! :) All stamps are by Stampin' UP! - Stipple Butterfly, Script, and Beyond the Basics. I colored the butterly using a blender pen and ink pad. Colors - Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Mellow Moss and Cameo Coral.
I tried without much success to make a swing (or flip flop) card in the past. But, I wanted a card with a different fold, so I tried again. You can find the directions here on Splitcoast Stampers. For some reason, it made sense to me this time and it turned out the way it was supposed to. :) I like when a plan comes together. The cutting for me was the hardest part and after getting the right, it was easy.The stamps are all by Stampin' UP! I used Looks Like Spring and Sweet Dreams for the sentiment. The colors are Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow, and Only Orange. The punched flowers are the punch that matches the Looks Like Spring stamp set.
