What a fun and easy card this is! I was challenged with creating a fun fold card for our team swap this month and decided to try a spanner card.

This card looks like it would be difficult to make with all of the secret openings and inside sentiments but it's not at all and once you get the design created, you can use any of the DSP you have in your stash! Just a reminder that the Awash in Beauty DSP is retiring and will only be available while supplies last!

Check out my YouTube video below for step by step instructions to make this card. I have also provided all of the dimensions and products used below the video.

Balmy Blue Card Base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2

I made this pretty card, using the Places in the Heart stamp set, for a friend who is expecting her first child. I think the memento black ink stamped on vellum creates a really stunning effect on the front of the card.

I think this is the first time I have made a card without a sentiment on the front, but I felt like it would take away from the image. I love how the Framed Florets dies create that beautiful border.

Most of the products I used for this card are retiring and will be included in the Last Chance Sale beginning today! You can head over to my website to check out all of the things that are retiring. Remember, that they are all while supplies last so don't wait to get those things you've had on your wish list at a discounted price!

I got the idea for this card from the Mini Catalog and created it for my monthly card class. Everyone had a great time making this card and learning some fun new techniques as we went along.

I began by making my own DSP (Designer Series Paper) using the adorable heart stamp from the Share a Milkshake stamp set. Then I did some heat embossing with gold embossing powder on a piece of Vellum cardstock. I added some crumb cake ink to the edges of the ice cream cone using a sponge dauber for some extra interest.

Check out my YouTube video below for step by step instructions for this card.
