The Freaks Are Getting Fancy (Folds, That Is!)
This month's edition of the Tour de Freaks is sure to be fun because we are featuring fancy folds, gift tags, or gift packaging, along with some sneak peeks from the upcoming Holiday Catalog! If you landed here from Melissa's blog, The Stamp Doc, welcome! Just follow the links on each blog to go to the next stop on the tour.
I knew immediately what I wanted to do when this theme came up. It's been so bloomin' HOT here that I can't wait for cooler weather and, dare I say it....SNOW?! We got slighted in the snow department last year, and I'm hoping this year will be different. So, with that in mind, pairing the new Snowman Season stamp set with the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP was a no-brainer!
If you have never made a Double Z-Fold card, you really must try it. It's so quick and easy and packs a little wow, too! Start with a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock for the card base and score it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2", then fold in a z-fold. Then do the same to another piece (1" x 11" used here). Flip it around, add your DSP or stamping and adhere it to the card base. So simple!
The snowman scene was colored with Seaside Spray and Purple Posy Combo Stampin' Blend Markers to coordinate with the Feels Like Frost DSP. Some Sparkle Glimmer Paper snowflakes were cut with the Frosted Frames Dies, which are part of the Feels Like Frost Suite.
Now hop on over to Julie's blog, Julie's Stamping Spot to see what confection she has cooked up!
