Craft It Up & Link It Up - Fun Folds

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day to all of my friends in the USA!! I want to sincerely thank the men, women and dogs who risk their lives so that we may enjoy freedom. God Bless our troops!!

 

Did you get the chance to hop with the Craftin Desert Divas DT this weekend to see the five awesome new stamp sets?? Today is another fun CDD Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party. Our theme this week is fun folds - lets see how creative you can get with fancy or simple folds :) The sponsors are Digital Delight by Loubylou: $5 G.C.; Miriams Crafting Supplies: $5 Credit (not on ATG or Shipping); Lucy Kelleher "Close to My Heart": $10 G.C. (Only in U.S.).


For my fun fold card, I created what I think is called a Tri-Shutter card or something like that. I made this card a few months ago and I found the directions on a blog. I thought I would be able to find it again when it was time to do my post and I can't. I've looked and looked. So I apologize...someone went to a whole lot of trouble making a tutorial and I can't give them proper credit :(


The papers are from Heartfelt Creations Balmy Breeze Collection. I created this card for my Dad who loves lighthouses and the ocean. The palm trees are Taylored Expressions Ride the Waves, colored with Distress Markers. The chair is a Die-Versions Adirondack Whispers die. Dad is from CDD's Snips & Snails stamp set...I masked off the "dy" in Daddy. Life's A Beach is from CDD's Summer Lovin' stamp set. Happy Birthday is from CDD's Simply Said stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp - Vacation/Travel
  2. DL.Art - May Linky
  3. Little Scrap Pieces - Show Off Saturday
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - May Linky
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Craftin Desert Divas to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge, then Craft It Up & Link It Up!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  24. My sweetest friend, I apologize for the delay! I had family here for the holiday. I love tri-shutter cards and yours (naturally) is fantastic! Papers are so key in this design and you couldn't have chosen more beautiful ones. What a stunning collection. Your dad is going to flip over the interior with the beautifully colored palm trees and sweet adirondack die. This is so perfect for him. Gorgeously designed project as always, my dear Lisa! I pray you had a blessed holiday! :o)

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen

  29. Oh Lisa....You are so AWESOME! I just LOVE your card and I love your message - BEAUTIFUL! I can only dream of creating like this. You are amazing my friend!

    I hope you had a nice weekend! I hope you were able get some sun and some BBQ :) We had such nice weather and lots of grilling time - our favorite. We're certainly blessed to live on a block that celebrates with parties for all the Holiday's. On Sunday our church honored the men and women that serve our country...It was a beautiful experience for our families and children to see why the Holiday is important. So when I saw your message, it made my heart smile :)
    Hope you have a GREAT evening!
