Clothesline Thank You Card

Here is my Clothesline Thank You Card! I have a friend who so generously gives us her sons old clothes for Timmy. These clothes are great and Timmy loves to be wearing "Brett's clothes", it's so cute! This is the thank you card that I made for her. I thought this could also be an adorable baby card with onesies on the line. I'm sure that's going to be my next one, so check back soon!
Here is how I made it:
I scored a 12" x 4-3/8" piece of Bashful Blue cardstock at 4-1/4" in from both sides. This makes the middle section 3-1/2". I then folded it and centered it in the scallop square die on the Big Shot to get my main card shape.

Then I used the 2-1/2" Circle Punch in the center square as far up as it could go. Then I folded over each side one at a time, and used the center as a guide to punch the other two.
To make the airplane I used the Large Oval and Word Window punches. I did not take good pictures while I was doing this, so I will do another one with better instructions. I basically just trimmed each piece a bit to get it the length I wanted. Check back for better directions to come soon!

For the clothes I used the template below and printed it out on Whisper White cardstock and colored them in. The I used twine for the clothes line and the new mini clothespins to keep the clothes on. The twine is attached with Mini Glue Dots and then I used the Cupcake punch to make the clouds and cover them up. The "thanks" is from the Word Play stamp set and just cut into a banner shape.

Hidden Pocket Glider Card

Here is my Hidden Pocket Glider Card! I had so much fun with my Ultimate Glider Card that I had to change it up and simplify it a bit to make them for swaps for Convention! This card is really easy to do and simple to prepare so it would be perfect for classes! You can even put a message or a gift card inside the hidden pocket!
You can watch the video below to see how the card opens and closes.

Mommo's Christmas Swap from Convention

Here is another one of Mommo's Christmas swaps from Convention. The base is 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” in marina mist card stock. The white is 4” x 5-1/4” embossed with the swiss dots embossing folder. The marina mist is a 3-1/2” square with a red 3-3/8” square. The white inside are 1-1/2” squares. She put them together on the table and stamped them, and then taped them to the card with space in the middle. These are stamped with soft suede ink and sponged around the edges lightly with marina mist ink. The sentiment is stamped with the stamps set and then cut out.

Mommo's Convention Christmas Wow Swap

Here is my moms Christmas wow swap from convention!

The card is a Baja Breeze 6-1/2” x 5-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4” for the fold to make a standard sized card that only opens half way from the top. The white piece is 4” x 5-1/4” on the inside. The front white is 5-1/4” x 2”. She used the Northern Frost strip die cut and then used the negative paper that’s been cut out of to sponge in the snowflakes with baja ink. She stamped the Heard from the heart sentiment and used Organza ribbon tied at an angle across the front and taped under the sides of the white. All of the white edges are sponged also with baja ink.
