Corner flip card

Saw this type of cut on YouTube and just had to try it
 Take traditional card however on the front you put it in your trimmer at 3" and place your cutting blade at the 5/8" mark and cut down to the 3" mark.
Turn the card to the inside (traditional opening and make the cut again.
 Flip the wedge you sliced down and you get the corner flip. Add a bit of adhesive to keep the flip down to the base. The pattern paper is 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
The leaves are a die set from Lawn Fawn, and the Thank you sentiment dies are from Tim Holtz

Celebrate die card

Got this die in a surprise pack. Of the purchase price for the "surprise" box, not many dies I liked but thought I would give this a go.
Base card is yellow card stock and I placed two different colors behind the bottom flags. Raised the blue cardstock on foam.
Kinda cute for either male or female birthday card.

Double pillar step down card

To create a card to handle the star banner I had to devise a card that would showcase the stars.

After making a previous stair step card, I had to try to make one but in reverse.

Not too bad!
Think I'll use my creation more for banner type cards.

Center Stair Step Children under a Tree card

I had a quiet evening to create a bunch of random cards.
This was one of them that I just bought.

I thought - how can I get the tree to have more dimension so I used the Center Stair Step card technique.
I used the grass from Elizabeth Craft Design - Garden Bench die set
I used the tiny butterflies from SU Stampin up.
The leaves are a very old punch.
The tree is raised up on foam strips

Heart of a shamrock card

Using a floral swirl embossing folder I applied that to yellow card stock.
Took a SU heart punch to create the clover and the branch from the bird punch to make the stem.

Sentiment from SU, the label from Spellbinders
