Sweet Magnolia Shaker card

Hi Friends, my first shaker card using my new Fuse tool.  Finally decided to go for it, because whenever I make a Shaker card, the "stuff" inside gets stuck to the foam take edges and sticks there.
I LOVE the Fuse, simple to use and looking forward to making some other things with it too.

I pulled a Tilda from my Magnolia stash.  Haven't bought many in recent years, don't like the way they changed the shape from sweet children that they were.  Every once in a while, like yesterday I see one on sale (I actually bought two with American flag themes)  and buy them.


Stamp - Magnolia
Doily from under my tea cup at a restaurant!!!
Trim from Michaels along with the bow
Heart Die is SPellbinders nestabilities die
Corners are a punch
Colored with Copics

I am entering my card into the challenge at 


Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day, Until later....

BSS MONDAY IDEA - A Double Pocket Card

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is a double-pocket card.  Easy Peasy to make and
so much fun to decorate. Makes a 5 1/2x4 1/4 card

You can find a great tutorial HERE, which uses one sheet of
card stock to make.

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/diagonal_double_pocket_card/

I used one sheet of 12x12 paper and used the same pattern, except
the first corner fold leaves an inch border on both sides.
I needed to make the larger card to use this wonderful stamp.
I also folded it so that the front of the card was solid and
the pockets were inside.


This is the stamp I built the card around
You can click the first image for a slide show
with a larger view to see details.


Front of the card


Card Opened


Card Opened with tag extended


inside with tag extended
The second pocket behind this tag holds a gift card,
or you can make a second tag or tuck some
other small goody in it.


Stamp-Stampingbella-Uptown girl, Lucille sends her love
Inside sentiment is included with this set.
Papers - Red and White card stock.  Designer paper on front
and in inside pocket Carta Bella. Red and White glitter paper
Dies - Large Scalloped oval Spellbinders
Inside Cascading hearts die- Spellbinders S4-457
Assorted hearts Sizzix Hearts Primitive #3(657021)
With Love - Dee's Distinctively (IME-102)
Lace border-Martha Stewart punch
Gold Stickles on her dress
Colored with Copics

This is a fun make and easy to put together.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later......
