Before I get to this awesome card I have to share today, I want to mention the fabulous Sale-A-Bration Join Offer.  Please read the information and let me know if you might be interested.  I would love to speak with you about it.  Or you can skip down to the project if you are not interested.

The Ultimate Bundle is the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit.  During Sale-A-Bration you get the extra value for your $99.00.  If you have a wish list or are ready to place an order and it totals close to 99.00, please read this first.

There is NO OBLIGATIONS to do anything beyond ordering the kit. You pay $99.00 + tax and receive $125.00 of your choice of products + any stamp set from the annual or mini catalog (the most expensive one is the Well Said set with a $45.00 price) + the Mini Paper Cutter, a $26.50 value + the 6X6 DSP sampler pack (48 sheets of DSP) an $11.50 value + a Paper Pumpkin Kit with a value of $22.00 + FREE Shipping which is usually 10% of the order and would add another $23.00 value here.  This equals over $230.00 value + business supplies added in at no cost.  That is an awesome deal!!  And you never have to purchase another thing.  But while you are trying it out, and you have until the end of July before your trial period runs out, you are part of my Team!  As well as my upline’s team.  We have Facebook groups to share our projects and assist each other.  I would love to talk with you about this opportunity.

Okay about the card…….  I love Fun Fold cards and found this Buckle Card on Pinterest  the other day.  The video I watched was by CindyLeeBeeDesigns.  I did not provide instructions since she did a great video for you to checkout. You can click the link to go to her video.


Stampin' Up!, Lovely Lily Pad, Buckle card, Jackie Beers


I paired the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set with the Lily Impressions Designer Series paper.  Both are Sale-A-Bration items.  I also used the Special February Release item of Lily Pad Dies.  You can see the special release flyer at the bottom of the post.

Of course I generally get my color choices out of the DSP, and that was what I did here.  I mixed Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Pool Party and Pretty Peacock card stocks.  I also used Flirty Flamingo for the Lily.  I stamped it with Flirty Flamingo Ink and then colored the shadow parts with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend.

The sentiment is from a new stamp set in the Mini Catalog named Thanks for the Laughs.  It is a great group of sentiments.  And these fit perfectly above and below the buckle strap.  To finish off the card I used the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

And here is a view of the Buckle part.



I will say I made a mistake on the buckle flap.  I scored at 1/2″ instead of 1/4″. I did not think it was a big deal since the length was long enough to go through the slot.  After attaching the lily though, the 1/4″ shorter length makes it a bit more difficult to get the buckle back through the slot.  So keep that in mind when you try this.  And I hope you will!!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope your day is as special as you are!
