May 2018 Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Hello Stampers! I am thrilled to be joining the Blogging Friends Blog Hop group.  Their blog hop occurs on the first of each month to share fresh stamping inspiration with you.  The theme this month is Fun Folds and I am featuring our Coffee Break designer series paper and Coffee Cafe bundle.
 I had so much fun learning the Twisted Gate Fold card technique.  I love our Coffee Break designer series paper, it has so many interesting geometric designs in a soothing color palette.   This suite is one or our Retiring Products so I had to create with it today before pulling it from my shelf.

The rosette is a clever embellishment to connect the card flaps. I used a tutorial by on Youtube to learn this technique.   The Simply Scored tool makes it so easy - all my supplies are detailed at the end of this post.
This would be great with a gift card for a coffee loving friend!  I also wanted to make an appropriate envelope for this size and shape of card.  The envelope punch board came to the rescue.
I think the Coffee Break DSP looks great in this fun fold design and it is especially charming with the coordinating envelope.  Don't forget to order the Coffee Cafe bundle and get 10% off before the bundle savings price retires.  The stamps and framelits will return in our next Annual catalog but only as separate products.
You don't want to miss out on the rest of the Blogging Friends Blog Hopping adventure, so, click below to advance directly to Crystals's website.  I know you'll be inspired by her creativity!  Or, click below on any of the names to see what they have created for you.

What a fun fold! I love the little rosette! And a good reminder we can make our own envelopes, I keep forgetting that! :)
