A Life in the Forest Diamond Fancy Fold Card from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

A Very Happy Monday Morning to you! How was your weekend? I hope you had a good one. 

I have lots of lovely projects to share with you this week. I will be posting projects made with my favourite retiring products (giving them one last airing before we move on to all the new loveliness of the new catalogue).

I have a  project to share from my May card class today. I had seen a similar project over on Belinda's blog and loved the effect of the combination of the Hardwood background with the Life in the Forest stamp set. I adore these little forest critters and will be putting this on my 'keep for my girls' shelf come June 3rd. This is definitely one I cannot bear to part with.

I used the basic measurements for the Double Diamond fold from Belinda's blog but I changed the width to allow for two cards to be made from one single piece of A4. I used Crumb Cake for my base with Soft Suede layers. The Hardwood was stamped with Chocolate Chip.

To colour the animals I used my Blender Pens and ink pads (I squeezed my closed ink pads to get ink on to the lid of the pad). This is how I managed to get a blended effect with my colouring. I love the vibrancy of the Chalk Marker for the details on the fox.

  1. I have been trying to hook up to a stampin up rep but I never get a reply. I am in the US. How expensive is the shipping from you to the US?
