More Design Team Projects


Happy Monday!  Hopefully everyone had a great weekend, keeping cool in this heat wave!  We have 2 more days of DT projects and then we'll be creating and working on September's projects!  Let's take a look at Debbie's last card, which has another great, handmade embellishment on it!

Yo Yo Card Tutorial

For this card I used two tools to make my embellishments, I used the Sizzix Tim Holtz Rosette die to make the accordion flower. This flower can also be done with a scorer by cutting a strip of paper approximately 1" - 2" depending on the size that you want, then edging it with a scalloped edge and scoring at the peaks and valleys of your scallop. This is a fun flower to use on cards and layouts.

I also used my epiphany round to make the 3 buttons across the top of the card. This is such a fun tool to use because you can make a fun button from the paper that you are using so everything matches really well. You can find these Epiphany tools in the store and they are fun to use on lots of different projects.

Thanks, Debbie!  Please stop into the store to see this sample up close!  And you can also check out Becky's step by step tutorial from July for the yo-yo flower here!

See you back tomorrow for our last project with Michelle!
