Tri-Fold Window Cards + Video

Hi, there!  This is a Louisa weekend coming up, so I'm looking forward to seeing her.

I've got a couple of crafts for her to make.  We made tulips a couple of weeks ago and she had so much fun using scissors and a hole-punch for the first time!

These tri-fold window cards were a lot of fun to make.  I've got a video (below) with a couple of tips (especially how to hide the tab).

I love the plaid stencil on the front of this one with that fun turnabout showing through the window.  The colors are soft and pretty.

Here you can see the turnabout stamped and then cut to fit the flap.

Have you created with any of the turnabout stamps?  Such a cool idea!

The inside is actually the leftover piece that makes the window from the front.  

Adorable kitties steal the show on these!  I couldn't decide how I wanted to color the kitty, so I colored it up a couple of different ways and then used both of them to create cards.

I think the kitty might be jumping up to catch a butterfly and then 

he caught it or maybe the butterfly caught him!

This one's fun with all the sequins and the silver embossed grid panel.  It's so weird - in this photo it looks like there are some blue sequins.  Reflecting light, I guess - there are no blue sequins!

I really love corny puns - I love mew cracks me up!

Here's the video with some tips on making tri-fold window cards:

So glad you stopped by!
