I taught a Mother’s Day card class Thursday for the 8-11 year old Achievement Day girls from Church. They each received a packet for a Melon Mambo card and a Perfect Plum card. Here are the samples using the Petal Potpourri Bundle (stamp set and punch). They had a fun time being creative and did well with cleaning their stamps when they were done using them. I did explain they were using “Grown-up Glue” and that they did not need to use very much. We only had two girls that forgot. Hopefully their mothers can open their cards.

We made this card at one of my classes using the Fun Frames and Decorative Dots Embossing Folders and the Sponging the Embossing Folders technique. This monochromatic card is in Pacific Point. Choose the color you are in the mood for when making your own version of this card.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Pacific Point card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. Drag the edges along your Pacific Point ink pad. Attach to your card base with Tombow Glue. 3. Get a piece of Whisper White card stock to use for your Fun Frame. Sponge the side of the embossing folder where the dots sink in making sure to cover the raised area. (Watch this Video for more details.) You can leave some white inside the frame if desired. Put your card stock on the side you did not sponge and gently close the embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot. Remove the embossed card stock. Clean your folder with either running water, Stampin’ Mist, or a baby wipe. Dry with a paper towel. Fussy cut around your Fun Frame. Attach to card front with Dimensionals. 4. Attach Rhinestones as desired.
TIPS: 1. Attach the Burlap Ribbon embellishment to you card with Tombow Glue on the 1/4″ edges of the ribbon. Trim off excess ribbon. 2. Thread the button with one of the ribbon strands you removed. Attach the Button with Glue Dots.
The new Fun Frames embossing folders make a great focal point for any card. I used the Decorative Label shaped one on this card. It is much larger than I thought. I even used a couple of different techniques on this card. Enjoy making one for yourself or a friend.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Tempting Turquoise card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. Watch this videofor detailed card base instructions. 2. Cut your Tempting Turquoise card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot using the Decorative Dots embossing folder. Use a Sponge Dauber (or Stamping Sponge) inked with Tempting Turquoise to lightly color the raised dots. You can darken the edge with either the Sponge Dauber or just run the edge against your ink pad. Watch this video for more instructions. 3. Ink your Sponge with Melon Mambo ink and sponge the inside of your Fun Frames embossing folder (the part with the Sizzix and Stampin’ Up! logos). Carefully place your Whisper White card stock inside the Embossing Folder, being careful to not move the card stock. Now Run through your Big Shot. Take out your Frame and see how nicely all the details show up. Cut the frame out leaving about 1/8″ to 1/4″ border around the Frame. Attach to your card front with Dimensionals. Clean your embossing folder by running under water or use Stampin’ Mist and a tissue or paper towel. 4. Cut your Little Letters “H” and “I” out of Whisper White card stock. Lightly sponge with Tempting Turquoise ink before removing them from the dies. Just use a stylus or toothpick to help remove them by pushing through the little circles. Attach the letters inside your Frame with Tombow Glue. I punched out the star from my first version of sponged Tempting Turquoise card stock that was embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder. Attach with a Glue Dot or Tombow Glue. 5. Tie two bows with the Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine. Trim ends the desired length either now or after they are attached to the card. Place a Glue Dot behind the knot and adhere it into the desired position. Repeat with the other bow. To adhere the ends of the bow, use your Paper Piercing Tool to scrunch up a Glue Dot so it forms a thin line. Now attach the end of the Baker’s Twine to the Glue Dot and position as desired. Repeat with the rest of the ends. 6. Admire your Fun Frame card before giving it away. If you would like you can emboss the envelope flap. Watch this video for instructions.
