Crazy Crafters January Blog Hop!

Welcome to a Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! I was invited to blog hop with the team! Today we are all featuring projects using products from the Sale-A-Bration & Occasions Catalogs. I will direct you to the next person in the hop at the bottom of my post. Make sure you visit each and every one of us!

For today's project, I actually case'd (copied and shared everything) a card shown on page 25 of our Occasions Catalog. The only thing I changed is the designer paper pattern on the front. Take a peek:

This is a tri-fold card and when you open the top panel, this is what you see:

Isn't it neat how the little cafe setting sits behind a window? I used a Window Sheet to cover the square die-cut hole. You'll also notice a blue tint on the window. I used the Dark Pool Party Blends Marker to color the window. So quick & easy!

Next, open the center flap in the opposite direction and you'll see the center of the card where there's room for a small note at the bottom:

Here's the detail I colored with my Stampin' Blends:

I don't usually purchase 12" x 12" cardstock so in order for me to use the 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock, my card base measures 10-1/2" x 5-1/2". I scored on the long side at 3-1/2" x 7" and folded.

The front of the card uses the Sweet Soiree Designer Paper and all of the stamping is from the Charming Cafe stamp set and coordinating Cafe Builder Framelits Dies. To finish off the card, I added some Black Baker's Twine on the left-hand side of the card base!
