3 Different Fun Fold Cards

This first card is a Center Pop up Step Card. I know it is a mouthful but it is a fun card to make. It has pillars on each side and looks more like a shadowbox. This one is for my sister's birthday which falls on Easter this year! The link below is from Iced Images and she does an amazing job explaining it.
The above card is a Gatefold Cascade card and it is held together with a belly band. I made this card with Graphic 45's Imagine Paper Collection. This card is for my soon-to-be daughter in law who just got a promotion and she is so excited about it. She is a hard worker and definitely deserves this! We are so happy for her. The tutorial for this card is below and it is from Mixed Up Crafts.
The third card is a birthday card for a music lover and her favorite singer is Eric Clapton. I have made this style card before but this was perfect for a good friend. I did make it a little different with a pocket so that you could put a gift card or additional note for the receiver. For the record and needle I used punch art with different punches but there are dies out there to use. I love making cards that I have a theme for and this worked perfectly! Happy Easter everyone!

Ocean Blue Birthday Card

Love these pop up dimensional cards. I made this one for my hairdresser's birthday. He lives near the ocean and loves to run to Willard Beach in South Portland. It is a beautiful spot! I have made countless cards and mini albums with Graphic 45's Ocean blue. I am also hoarding the paper collection for more projects with this special collection. Here is a picture of the front of the card below. I used some cut aparts for the front.
I also wanted to share some pictures of some Easter projects that my sisters and I did for our "space" at Cole's Corner in Wells, Maine. Thanks for stopping by.
