Sweet Ice Cream Bundle by #stampinup


This yummy ice cream Birthday card was created by my friend and Team member, Karen Kapfer, using the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle with PUNCH #156244. It's delish!!



Here is a tip: use the coordinating punch to punch the ice cream and cone from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper #154567! It's fast!!



Thanks for sharing, Karen! This card is good enough to eat!




Two Pocket Card Folder & Pattern


My ALL-TIME favorite way to package handmade cards as a gift, is this quick and easy TWO-POCKET CARD FOLDER! Here is my pattern that uses one full sheet of card stock. The Folder holds four standard cards or four note cards. 

Download Two-Pocket Folder for cards



Embellish the front of the Folder as much or as little as you like.  The main thing, REPEAT the colors and images used on the cards inside for a professional look.



Here are the four standard cards and envelopes in this Folder. The same crisp, snappy True Love Designer Paper #154281 was used on this entire project.  I used the Medium Daisy Punch #149517 and used the small daisy-like print on each card. The accent is Silver Foil Paper #132178 and the little heart from the Dog Builder Punch #148543. The cards are fast and simple. Pick your favorite designer series paper and try this!
