Team Meeting Card Guts Samples

I think I've mentioned this before but every month at our team meetings, I give everyone in attendance some supplies (all the same) and challenge them to create something and bring it to our next meeting. At last months meeting, I gave them the following:

Midnight Muse 5-1/2"x8-1/2"
Summer Starfruit 4-1/4"x5-1/2"
Very Vanilla 4-1/4"x5-1/2"
Baja Breeze 4-1/4"x5-1/2"
Comfort Cafe (Midnight Muse chevron pattern/Summer Starfruit pattern) 4"x6"

You can use any current stamp set, accessories and tools.  The project can be a card, 3D project or something scrappy.  Over the next couple days I will share with you the beautiful projects we received. 

This first card is Carla Woelinga's.  She did a fancy fold and used the Everything Eleanor stamp set - this is her favourite set out of the new catalogue.
This photo shows the bottom flap open.
And then with the small flap open.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I love it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love the fold of this card....(and have wasted way too much cardstock trying to figure it out!) Would you be willing to post the sizes of the card stock pieces and where to score? Thanks so much!

I checked with Carla and she said she used the instructions she found here:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/joy_fold_card/

but used the option to make it square.

Make it a square
Create your square card base by scoring a 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" piece of cardstock at 4 1/4".
Score a 3" x 6" piece of cardstock at 3" to create your insert.

Because she was working with precut pieces (the guts she was given) her cardstock was only 5.5" long so she added the 2 layers of edging to the end to make it 6".

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!
