December 31, 2013
For this Dutch Paper Craft Release, I will be using 5 different embossing folders. For my first card, I got this great idea to use an old picture of a little girl, which I found on My Graphic Fairy. Here is my card using HSF006 Embossing Folder " Round Frame -1 ". This card can be used as a greeting card or a note card.
To make this card I also used the following items:
Dies-scallop circle die from spellbinder
Card stock- cream and soft pink
Photo- My Graphic Fairy
Stamps-Just Rite stamp set " Old Friends " # JB 10015
Marker-stampin up- melon mambo, pink ink pad
Pearls, bow, and ribbon from my stash.

The next card I made was using embossing folder HSF007 " Small Flowers". I got this great idea to cut the paper into sections, then carefully place them back together into a inked embossing folder. then using my ATG gun I placed them carefully onto some eggplant colored card stock. Tied 2 ribbons around it and stuck a few gems in place. I then cut the edges with my Martha Stewart Punch.

All in all this was a fun card to make and was very easy. Here is a list of supplies I used:
Spellbinder die Label one S4-161
Spellbinder die Floral Doily Motifs S5-041
Martha Stewart Punch, black ink pad
Stamps- Just Rite- " Sending You sunshine" JB-09890
Gems and ribbons from my stash
Card stock- white and elegant eggplant

Embossing Folder " Flowers and Leaves" # HSF008 was next on my list of beautiful folders. I decided to use a combination of the folder along with some dies and they worked beautifully together.

To make this card I used the following:
Dies-Memory Box 98401 & 98402
        Spellbinders Shapabillities Botanical Swirls & Accents S5-146
Stamp set- Just Rite " Botanical Medallions & Banners # CR-03705
Card Stock- Yellow, White, White Core Yellow
Paper Shaper Petal Punch, Pearls from my stash, bronze stickers
Marker- Spectrum Noir- LY1 and JG1

Embossing Folder "Swirls- 1" HSF009
When I saw this folder the first thing that came into my mind was a beautiful white wedding cake.

I decided I not only had to make the cake, but a box to put it in. For the card I used the embossing folder and cut pieces and glued them together in the shape of a cake. I then added pearls from my stash and white wedding trim to look like icing. All that was left to do was to add the ribbon and bow and then write my message on the inside of the card. The box is home made also using white card stock. the following was also used to make the box as beautiful as can be.
Dies-Mini Fanciful Flourish Cheery Lynn B1175 used on the outside of the box
Punches-Fiskers petal punch & paper shaper petal punch to make small and large flowers.
Self adhesive pearl gemstones from the paper studio to place on the box and the card front
White card stock, acetate for the window, 1" satin ribbon to make bow for the card. White wedding trim to appear as icing on cake.

Embossing Folder " flowering Spring " #HSF010
For my last card all I could think of was Spring time. I love when the flowers start to pop their little heads up out of the ground after a spring rain.
This is such a clean cut card, so sweet. Very easy to make. For this card I used the following items:
Stamps-Just Rite "Old Friends" # JB10015 
Card Stock- white & mint green
mint green ribbon and flower beads from my stash. Stamped image inside of card that is colored with colored pencils and glossy accents applied over the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed this release just as much as I enjoyed making it. All my dies and stamps were purchased from Dutch Paper Crafts. If you go there for your shopping needs they will take very good care of you. 
Hope you have a Blessed Day.
Love Carol
