Halloween Tri-Fold Card

Well this Saturday is Halloween.....it will be a bit different for many.  Here in Edmonton you are allowed to Trick or Treat in your own neighbourhood. (not sure how that will be enforced!)

Our grandaughters will not be going door to door.  They are having an "outdoor party" with another family...but we will still be giving them some treats.  I made this card to include with their treats!


I found a tri-fold card with instructions on the internet and chose to make mine a Halloween theme.  I used some items that are retired; like the black glimmer paper and the bat punch!  One of my stamp sets is pretty old too it is called The Best of Halloween.  The Designer Series Paper I used is from the Mini Catalogue!

The card opens up and these are 2 of the layers:

This is the second layer. 

This is the third layer and where you can write inside the card.

Paper Pumpkin update

 To all the Paper Pumpkin lovers!

While constructing our new online store, we were required to temporarily suspend the offering of past kits and refills from Paper Pumpkin. We’re excited to announce that the online store functionality that allows us to offer these products is nearly ready to launch! Paper Pumpkin Past Kits and Refills will be available once again beginning 26 October.
On 26 October, available products will include the September Refills and October Refills! These products will only be available while supplies last and require a Paper Pumpkin subscription to order. The re-launch will take place in both the online store (OLO) and the demonstrator ordering system (OEX).
Now that Paper Pumpkin Past Kits and Refills have been made available again, we will continue to release new past kit and refill products each month as inventory and demand allow. If you’re interested in purchasing these products, they’re typically released—if available—on the 4th Monday of each month.

Snowflake Wishes card

Here in Edmonton, it has definitely turned to winter and today I am sharing one of the cards I have made from the Snowflake Wishes Suite.  This card with the sentiment could be used for any ocassion during the winter months.

The Snowflake Wishes Suite includes a Bundle (stamp set and dies), an embossing folder, Designer Series Paper, specialty Balmy Blue glimmer paper , ribbon and embellishments.  The Designer Series Paper is an assortment of hand painted snowflakes and wintry blue tones to give the feel of watercoloured designs. It is just beautiful and has designs on both sides of each sheet.

I cut the different size of snowflakes from silver foil, whisper white, balmy blue and the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.  I then chose 2 to adhere together for each snowflake.  The dies were used to cut the piece for the greeting and I added my snowflakes over the cut out areas.
