Today's post is a Accordion Tag fold card. If you'd like to learn how to make this type of card you can find a tutorial under my tutorial tab or click here.  I have also linked additional card samples of  under the tutorial.
I chose 3 patterned papers from the stack to coordinate on the card front. I also stamped the yellow card stock with a large background stamp to give it more texture and interest. you can see the list of supplies I used below.

I also used the background stamp for the card inside

Here is a look at the accordion tag. I thought it might be fun to add quirky birthday greetings
and I used the same stamp set for the card front background and the envelope.

For this card i stamped the image on the patterned paper, then stamped another image on white card stock, colored it in, fussy cut it out and glued it on top of the patterned paper stamped image.


I then stamped another image on whiter card stock, colored it and cut out just the cake image to paste inside the card.

Small Coaster Calender

Hi There! Welcome to All Things Beautiful!
 I am so glad you stopped by for a visit on this Monday Morning!

So this will be a quick post. I made this paper project over a year ago at a crafting retreat with a Stampin' Up demonstrator and never ended up taking pictures of it. 
I recently came across a Youtube video making one almost identical and thought I would share the tutorial under my tutorial tab here.

I just thought this was so cute and wanted to share. I know the demonstrator got some of her supplies on Amazon. I'll link what I think she used below.





Products:
I don't know the exact products and supplies because they were given to me prepped by the Stampin' Up demonstrator...but
here are some links to what I could find that looks pretty close.

Happy Monday and I hope you have a great week. Now it's your turn to go make something beautiful!

Merry and Bright

Hello friends and welcome to All Things Beautiful.
I hope you are having a fun summer and also finding time to be creative.
In today's post I am showcasing a Christmas card. 
What would be July with out a little Christmas in July?!

For this card I chose to stick with a 6x6 paper pad and play off the elements in the patterned paper.
I also incorporated some stitching as well. If you'd like some ideas on how to incorporate stitching into your cards you can find a stitching tutorial under my tutorial tab here.


For the inside of the card and for the envelope I continued to use pages from the 6 x 6 pad and additional cut out pieces from the snowflake dies listed below. I added a strip of paper and stitching to the flap of the envelope. I hope it mails well. It's not too thick but does have some dimension.


Products:
Craft Smith Shimmer Noel 6x6 pattern paper stack
Gina K Designs Black Onyx cardstock
Martha Stewart Aspen Snowflake border punch
CAS-ual Fridays Bring On The Snowflakes stamp die set



Have a great week! 
Hope you find time to make something beautiful!
