Charming Duck Pond Screen Fold Card and more

Today’s cards using the products found in the Lily Pond Lane Suite Collection (163354)

This collection is filled with a wonderful stamp set, dies, paper and even a fun embellishment. And the images in the paper are just lovely.

When I was a little girl I had 2 pet mallards that my dad got for me at the 7 Mile Fair, they were so pretty with their iridescent tail feathers and I raised them from little ducklings along with our 100 chicks. This Suite reminds me of those ducklings.

The first card that I’m sharing with you today highlights that paper and the Charming Duck Pond Dies (163349) that will cut the images out of the Lily Pond Designer Series Paper (163342). The card is a fun fold called a Screen Fold, or Folding Screen Card. Kind of like the room dividers that I saw when I was younger.

Can you seen it? This card folds in half to slide into the envelope and gives you 4 or 8 panels depending on what you would like.

This first side uses the all occasions sentiment found in the set, and the Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) have been used to cut it and pop it up. The sweet little duck on the right has been cut from the Lily Pond Designer Series Paper (163342). Don’t you love the Pretty in Pink 3/8″ Bordered Ribbon (163784) and the fun Adhesive Backed Dappled Dots (163353). The other side

has some more of the lovely Designer Series Paper and a bit of more stamping done in Gray Granite. The little duck has been colored this time with our Stampin’ Blends to match the Designer Series Paper. And while this next card uses those same little Adhesive Backed Dappled Dots (163353) and Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) it has a complexly different feel.

This time the background uses an embossing folder, the Layered Florals 3D Embossing Folder (162935) a bit of Basic Beige ink has been placed on the folder before running it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss to create a tone on tone effect. The Balmy Blue has been used for the sentiment and matt layers and then again in the male duck giving it a softer feel.

Aren’t they both great cards? While they use the same Suite products they “feel” so different. Which one do you like best? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.
