Fancy Folds Handmade card with Stampin' Up Mixed Bunch Stamp Set

I am member of the Stampin' Divas which is a group of Stampin' Up demonstrators who swap handmade cards featuring Stampin' Up Only products on a monthly basis.  The March theme was Fancy Folds Cards so I will show you the cards I received during the next few days.

First up is a lovely variation of a Joy Fold card made by Danette Ruger Throckmorton at Dannie's Creative Outlet.

She used several stamp sets - Mixed Bunch, Four Frames and a birthday greeting from Petite Pairs.  The supply list is at the end of the post.


Supply List
Stamp Sets:   Mixed Bunch, Four Frames, Petite Pairs
Colors:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Cantaloupe Crisp, Pistachio Pudding
Accessories:  Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack - 2013-2015 In Colcr Collection
Tools:  Punches - Designer Label, Circle, Blossom, Scallop Trim Border; Sizzix Top Note Bigz Die.

And, yes, she hand cut the printed paper die at the dot punch border so that she had a smaller die to layer on the white cardstock.

This would be a very impressive card to make for someone's birthday!
Happy Stamping!
