Stamp Camp Is The Best!

I just love going to Stamp Camp. It's the highlight of my month. I can't wait to see what new ideas and products Heather has in store for us. She is so creative! I also find that she challenges me in some of her projects because of the designs of the cards or the colors she chooses. I sometimes find myself being very safe in my color choices, but am working to breakout from that.

At last night's camp we did 3 cards that ventured away from the "traditional" size card with the traditional fold. This one I really enjoyed. We folded the paper in half to make the card, then folded the top of the card back. We then adhered a piece of the two-sided designer paper to each part of the card front that was showing. We then stamped the Winston Churchill quote onto some white paper adhering it to brown backing with enough room at the bottom to add a splash of ribbon color to the card. After adding a few flowers created by the SU flower punch and dotting their middles with a white gel pen, we added the adhesive tape to stick it to the top part of the card, and there you have it. A beautiful card with a unique fold, AND, there is still plenty of room inside to write whatever you'd like. It was a really quick card to make and I'm looking forward to coming up with some new ways to utilize this card fold with other sets and colors. Thanks Heather!!
