Handmade Folding Cards

The Happiness Blooms product suite and the Doily Builder thinlits are the featured products for the cards I’m sharing today.

I’ve created five variations on this same card layout. They each use different patterns from the Happiness Blooms designer paper pack.

The set of Handmade Folding Cards in this post are made with the Doily Builder Dies and the Happiness Blooms designer series paper.

You’ll find four out of the five designs in this post.

The fifth version is not included here as it is exclusive to the Simple Suite Stamper’s Tutorial Bundle. You can get this tutorial bundle for FREE with a qualifying purchase. There are more details ahead.

As you may be able to tell these cards are made with a folded element, for something a little different.

I love these monochromatic designs on these handmade folded cards. With these simple color schemes, the detail in the die cut doily shapes really stands out.

Another fun element on these cards is the Clear Faceted Gem in the center of the doilies.

The color scheme here is Whisper White (outside doily), and Night of Navy (inside doily). The Gem is clear on the green card but I’ve added some color to the gem on this blue and white card!

The gem on this card was colored using a Dark Night of Navy Blends Alcohol Marker. Isn’t the color just gorgeous? I LOVE it!

Here’s a closer look at the version in greens:

The color scheme here is Whisper White (outside doily), Mint Macaron (middle shape) and Call Me Clover (inside doily). I love this bright and cheerful green and the pattern in the designer paper pattern used here!

On this close up can you see that the Basic Black panel is dry embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder?

I love adding texture to my projects and this was the perfect added touch for this card!

These next two cards are so bold and cheerful don’t you think?

The color scheme on the card below is Pineapple Punch (outside doily), Grapefruit Grove (middle shape and card inside piece) and Calypso Coral (center doily).

A Dark Calypso Coral Blends Alcohol Marker was used to color the Clear Faceted Gem in the center.

I love coloring these gems and the Blends Alcohol Markers work so beautifully!
