Window Framelit Fun Fold

First off, no MDS Monday this week, because on Friday I am participating in a Stampin' Addict's Blog Hop featuring My Digital Studio projects.  So come back on Friday to see a boatload of My Digital Studio ideas and stuff.  So today, you get a regular creative post.

At convention in July, Shelli Gardner showed a really fun card on the mainstage that featured the Window Framelits in a trifold card.  You can see her original card on her blog: So Shelli.  When I saw that card, I knew I would have to CASE it.  After all, my customers love to buy what I show, and I know they would have to have these Window Framelits if I showed them a card like that.

So for my September Stamp Clubs we made this card:

Colors: Basic Gray, Midnight Muse, Marina Mist, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White. Stamps: Friendship Preserves.  Big Shot: Window Framelit Collection, Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Accessories: Stampin' Write Markers, Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper, Simply Scored.
This window shape is fabulous for so many projects.  For this one, I used the two largest sizes and then scored them just a little bit off where the circle meets the square notches.  I adhered the flaps to the back and then added a few more framelits to the the top. 

I used the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack to get those paper piercings perfect like that.  In October, you can get that pack free when you purchase a Christmas Gift pack.  Contact me today for all the details.  And ff you come back on Wednesday, I will show you a second card I made with this same layout, but this time for Christmas.

Oh that is such a fun fold! Different, plus it gives us yet another way to use our tools - love it!
