Fancy Friday is Sale-a-Brating

Welcome to another Fancy Friday Blog Hop.  This month we are all sharing a Sale-A-Bration themed card or project.  I chose to show you my project using a card kit.  The Precious Parcel Card Kit is one of the free selections you can earn with a $50 purchase during Jan., Feb. and March.  I love all the vintage and delicate details that come in the kit.  

I made my own pattern to make a "foldout photo folio" made of layered cardstock pieces.  To go with the kit I added in some Grey Granite and Whisper White cardstocks to make my foldout pages. I also included some embossing using the Lace Dynamic TIEF which I think fits the look and style of the card kit perfectly.

Here is a look at the folio tied shut with Powder Pink 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon.

When you untie the ribbon here is what you see.  I fussy cut one of each of the card kit inserts as focal/anchor points for the top and bottom flaps.  To the fussy cut pieces I added lots of leaves and berries cut from the Wonderful Floral Framelits.

I love how this striped airmail envelope from the under/bottom layer peeks through when the top flap is closed.  When the top flap is lifted you get to see another beautiful montage of florals and leaves.

To create a more polished look for all of the flaps I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to round and angle cut all of the corners.

This view is with both the top and bottom flaps open.  It's tricky to tell the colors of the bottom set of photo mat layers.  The main layer with the twine bow and pink leaves is actually Gold Foil.

Each of the mail box panels do open (not shown) and have inserts embellished with paper clips, postage stamps, and Gold Glimmer flowers with Basic Pearl centers.

In total I used not quite half of the kit for my project.  With one kit you can make two folios and a few extra mail box cards with envelopes.

Be sure to catch my Facebook Live video with measurements and assembly instructions on Tuesday, January 29th at 1:00 p.m. PST.

Charlet Mallett is up next and she is surely going to spark your imagination with her unique and clever creations.  Let me end by saying "thanks for stopping by and Happy Sale-a-Bration!"
