The Home Sweet Home Thinlits make a very cute little house with decorations for a spooky house, a dog house, or a Christmas gingerbread house. You can use just the front of the house from the set, but I wanted a 3-D house to fold flat and fit in an envelope. I saw one “Crafted by Helen.” Here’s my version.

I love cards that look difficult but really are not. This “Z-Fold” card is just a standard half sheet of card stock folded in half and then one side is folded a second time. The Old Olive and Whisper White strips are folded the exact same way, but reversed when you add it to the card base. The result is impressive!

The stamp set can be found inside the back cover of the 2017-2018 annual catalog. That spot is reserved for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) stamp set. Each year, Stampin’ Up! offers a special stamp set. You help RMHC when you buy this set because Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 (US) for each set sold. Stampin’ Up! and demonstrators also give time, money (over $1.5 million), and cards to this organization that provides a place for families to be surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatments far from home.

Don’t buy the Everyday Jars Framelits just for this card. It’s not difficult to “fussy cut” the jar and the lid. But the Framelits also coordinate with the Jar of Love stamp set. I think you may want to buy all three, so I’m including Jar of Love in the links even though it wasn’t used in this card.

I’ve seen quite a few of these cards and I really wanted to try one. My friend Jeanne showed me how and they are not nearly as complicated as they look. I used Just Add Text for the greeting, the gorgeous Layered Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background, and Flower Shop for the images. I was really pleased with the color combination as well: Dapper Denim, Pear Pizzazz, and So Saffron. Don’t wait as long as I did to try this layout!

This card is simple on the front, but used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits for the surprise inside. The Thinlits does all the work for you! So fun.

Flash your messages on this marquee. It uses a Pop of Pink and a Party Pop-Up inside. I had a bright idea to mount the pop-up. Watch the video to see what I mean.

Yep some of the products are now gone. I’d hoped to get this posted before they retired. But just change out the Designer Series Paper and the ribbon and you can still make this card. Here’s one alternative, but you can pick any paper, ribbon, and ink.
