Hello friends, thank you for joining me today.  If you are like me,  you enjoy finding different ways of using products. Today I have a wonderful new way for you to use the Foldout card blanks in my tutorial below! Join me for some crafty fun and make some beautiful projects for your friends and family.

Our Crafters say:

Heartfelt dies and stamps has taken me to a whole new level of scrapbooking and card making . you cannot buy these type of cards anywhere so this is so unique for me to give these cards. Keep creating and bringing us new things and so thankful for Emma Lou and her tutorials which guide us each time. - Peggy 

Your cards are gorgeous! it is such fun to make them & think of the person(family), I am sending them too. your products make Christmas even more special. - Karen Stuntz 

I love the way you show details. Your samples are always so beautifully coordinated. Thank you for sharing so generously. - Phylis Smith



Step 1 Using the Foldout cards in black fold all of the score lines and fold the card as you normally would with the two smaller panels on the outside.

Step 2 Turn and put those two smaller panels on the inside of the card to create pockets on the inside of the card.  This now gives you a full area on the front of the card to add more details and embellishments.

TOP TIP You can keep these two smaller panels attached, but I found the card did not close tightly so I just trimmed both panels off and then into two pockets and used the border basics dies to cut my papers to size. Here is what the inside of the cards now look like.




Step 3 Cut the borders out of black card stock and attach them to the front and inside as shown, then adhere your pockets on the inside. Be sure to check first if any trimming on the edges need to be done to have a clean and crisp fit. Here is what the front of the cards now look like, with the smaller pockets folded on the inside in the above photo. 


Step 4 Cut and stamp out the sunflowers, classic rose leaves and the botanic windows. Watch this video HERE to learn how to easily to shape the sunflowers.




Step 5 Mold and shape your leaves and flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add detail to your flowers with the Crystal Clear and Frosting powders.  Add ribbon, trinket pins and gold thread to add some more details and voila, you now have a fun new way to use these fold out cards.


Have lots of fun making some of these for your friends and family, add messages, photos, gift cards even money into the pockets to make someone's day!


Karan has made a short video for you too for these projects HERE

We love to see what you make, share your projects with us over on our Facebook page.

HI Beverley After molding my flowers, i added a drop of Art Institute dries clear and i let it spread out to form a small circle of glue; then i sprinkled root beer seed beads in the middle and set aside to dry, Seed beads are available at a lot of craft stores and dollar stores if that helps and they come in a variety of colors.

I'm back again to take another look at your beautiful cards. I'm so inspired by them....I truly meant it when I said among the most beautiful cards I've ever seen. I have purchased all four of the border die sets and can't wait for them to arrive....should be here by Friday. Yippee....next on the list are the sunflower die and stamp. Thank you, again, for getting the creative juices flowing....I'm more of a technician than an artist and this is why I follow blogs...I need the jump start. BTW, I participated in the live video the other day, too, and it was wonderful to see the dies being used with lots of helpful tips. Kudos to HC and TEAM.
