Saturday Blog Hop – Awning Cards

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring  “Awning special fold” cards this week!  I first saw one done by my fabulous friend, Lorri Heiling, with a hut and mixed drinks and have wanted to try one for myself!


Here’s what I came up with using the cute potion bottles from Spooky Cat stamp set!

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Cajun Craze Cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded to form the base card.
  • A 1-3/4 x 3-3/4 piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock was scored at 1/4″ and placed at the bottom of a 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Very Vanilla cardstock.  It was stamped with Happy Halloween with Memento Black Ink.
  • A row of the hash mark image from Spooky Cat stamp set was stamped above it using Soft Sky Ink for the “table”.
  • The potion glasses were stamped with Memento Black Ink on top and filled with Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Cajun Craze liquids.
  • The awning was made by cutting a 2 x 3-3/4 piece of striped Spooky Night Designer Paper and scoring across at 3/8 and 1-5/8″.  Adhere the top scored piece to the top of the Very Vanilla layer, then bend out the center section.
  • The black awning piece was cut with the Home Sweet Home Thinlits from Basic Black cardstock (twice) and adhered along the edge, then trimmed to fit.
  • A witch hat from the Spooky Night Designer Paper was cut out and added to the bottom with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

This is SO CUTE! Lorri is fabulous, but then, she’s my upline and I love her to pieces. So glad you made this as Halloween, it’s adorable with the “mixed drinks”. LOL
