Stampin' Up! Card Ideas from Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sandi MacIver

Totally Trees Side Spring Card

Hi stamping friends and Happy World Card Making Day – to celebrate, I have a new card video for you – Totally Trees Side Spring Card.

It’s Saturday so of course it’s Technique Day over at Stamping and Blogging and it’s also kind of a rewind day.  Plus because it’s such a special day – our project is Public to all.

I recently had some new stampers in my studio and they were totally enamoured with some folding cards I had on display.  It reminded me that although I made these cards quite a few years ago, new stampers had not seen them – so lets rewind back a few years to the Totally Trees Side Spring Card.

This adorable little card has such a great fold and it “Springs” out of the envelope when you open it.

Of course I had to use up to date Stampin Up Products because Stamping and Blogging is 100% Stampin Up.  So, Totally Trees a new stamp set from the Holiday Catalog, Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Paper, Pool Party and Rich Razzleberry card stock.

There is a video here to walk you through the creation of this card – don’t be scared; it’s actually very easy and doesn’t require many pieces.


Please note if you are reading this post in an e-mail, you may need to click on the heading to visit my blog to view the video:

    Hi Sandi!
    Cute card and great video. Thanks for the PDF, too. I will definitely have to try this one, as I have not seen it before either!
    I’m so glad you do these videos – I love to hear your voice again! And I’m so sorry about Oscar – I hope he’s doing better.

      Thanks so much Candi, so glad you liked it. Oscar is doing really well and responding amazingly to his treatment, his tumor has reduced by 95% already so we are very hopeful.
