Tutorial: Tilt Cards

This style of card would be ideal for when you need a lot of space for a group of people to sign their names or add personal sentiments.   They fold out into a rectangle of card stock - as small or large as you like - and stand on a funky angle when placed up on display.  The best part about them is that they're pretty easy to make!


1.  Start with a rectangle of card stock.  It doesn't matter what size you use, but for the purpose of this tutorial I used a piece that measures 81/2" x 11".


2.  Score the card stock in half on both lengths so you end up with four equal sections.  Fold along the score lines and press the creases firmly with your bone folder.


3.  Now you need to score and fold a diagonal line that runs from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.  Fold it back and forth a couple of times along the score line to loosen the crease.


4.  The diagonal creases fold inward toward the centre of the card.  This takes a little bit of manoeuvring, but eventually you should be able to bring the two side creases together.  If you're having trouble with this step, try folding back and forth along the score lines a few times until everything folds together and you can flatten the card.


5.  To decorate the card, cut pieces of patterned paper for the sections shown below.  These sections will all be visible when the card is folded.


6.  Now you can add some stamps and embellishments to decorate the front of your card.  If you're feeling particularly ambitious, you can decorate all the other sections of the card and even add little hidden sentiments behind the different folds.  Have fun!

New Release: Wetlands Set

Today I'm releasing a mix-and-match "Wetlands" set.  It's a little bit different than my usual digital stamps as each image is saved as a png file that can be layered with the other designs to form different scenes.  You can use the images separately for clean and simple cards or use them all together for a beautiful river, lake or pond vista, and since they're silhouettes, you can print them over patterned paper, photographs or your own coloured backgrounds.

Wetlands Set

My designers have created a wonderful range of beautiful cards and projects to help inspire your creativity.  Don't forget to visit their blogs to see more of their fabulous work.

Carla's Card
Carla created a gorgeous, monochromatic card using just two of the images from the set.  The soft background and beautiful moon rise give it a truly serene feel.


Judy's Card
Judy also used a limited colour palette for her fabulous card.  She printed the water and treeline, then fussy cut the turtle and reeds to add some dimension to the foreground.


Karin's Projects
Karin has used several of the images as stand alone elements on her cards.  She used a digital software program to give the ducks on her second card some texture and interest.


Petra's Projects
Petra created a wonderful card with an oval aperture looking out onto a beautiful evening scene.  She also created two beautiful Father's Day tags featuring different elements from the set.


AJ's Cards
AJ made two fabulous cards using a variety of images from the set.  She combined the printed scenes with bold background papers and a scattering of shiny sequins.


Anesha's Card
Anesha created this stunning card by printing the images over a photograph she had taken.  She resized and positioned the ducks to give the illusion of depth and distance.


Annie's Card
Annie has used gorgeous bright blues and greens to create a fabulous background for her card.  She used multiple copies of the heron image, with some flipped and resized, to create a bird-filled shoreline.
