Today’s project showcases one of my favorite products from the Mini Catalog.  And it is not sold out!!  It is the Desert Details Bundle.  This also is my design for the Make My Monday Challenge, which is “Frame It”.  My frame is a bit different but I love it.

Since the challenge was to Frame It, I am showcasing the awesome Dies with the Desert Details Bundle. The first of the front layers is the Cajun Craze card stock.  But the next is one of the frames in the Desert Details Dies.  I love the indented points!  Additionally all of the other front pieces are cut using various of the same Die set.  I especially love the design the hello is stamped on.  It is such an interesting shape.


All of the papers used are from the Delicate Desert Designer Series Paper or colors from it.  Calypso Coral is the card base, with DSP layers, and then Cajun Craze.  The front Die cuts are Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent, along with some DSP there as well.


The bundle was mentioned under details.  But I do love this stamp set and especially the Dies.  The fun shapes are amazing.  Plus I like the simpler type sentiments.  And the fact the Hello fit on that small die cut shape was perfection.


There are several added touches to this card.  The front has the Linen Thread looped behind the catcus flowers.  That is very soutwest looking.  And I added some of the Gold Faceted Sequins to give some bling to the front.

The best part is that this card is a fun fold.  It is a Double Z Fold.  And is quite simple to make.  Just remember that you use the folds opposite of each other.  The long section on the base card has the shorter section of the layer, and vise versa.  Here is a look at the card open.

From this view you can see exactly what I meant about the opposite direction of the base and layer.  What you do not see is that I added a second white panel between the front and the sentiment on the back for you to write a short note.


The Calypso Coral card base is 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  The Cajun Craze layer is 3 1/2 X 10 and scored at 2 1/2 and 5.  My two inside White layers are 2 1/4 X 3 1/4.  Decorate how you wish.
