Ariana Club Cards

Next month in my clubs we will be working with our gorgeous Ariana papers. And this month's technique will be FUNKY FOLDS! Instead of just adhering our paper flat and smooth, we are going to try some different folding techniques to create added design and dimension!

This first card was inspired by the incredible Bren Yule

I love this folding technique! It really shows off our two-sided pattern papers and creates a whole new dynamic! I call it the Chevron Fold.

And the silk bows that come in the Ariana Assortment are just adorable!!

This next set of cards features a different kind of fold - a box pleat fold.

I added a paper doilie for fun and I used our DOT Embossing Flder on the top 2/3 of the card base and the flowers.

Our scallop punch makes a nice border transition for the box pleat. And our ProPlayer Assortment makes a nice center for the flower!

The last set of cards is supposed to give the illusion of a quilt pattern. This fold turns a circle into a square and again shows off our two-sided pattern papers!

I embossed the card base with our Damask Embossing Folder to give it more of a quilted feel.

You can make your cards for Birthday or Mother's Day or BOTH!

Let me know if you would like to join our club and make these cards! We meet in both Danville, WV on the 2nd Friday of each month and Cross Lanes, WV on the 4th Friday of each month. Or you can form a club of your own and I will come to YOU!

  1. Love these! Your quilt cards are my favorite. Love the design. Great job!

  2. Thank you Casandra! I'm glad to hear you say you like the quilt cards. I really agonized over those - I didn't feel they were quite finished but had to let it go! Thank you for the encouragement! :o)

  3. Hello Christine! I met you briefly on the bus to Convention last year with my downline Helen Lippi. I was directed to your website by Kathy Markloff and I just ordered both of your Ariana workshops. Gorgeous just doesn't cover it. Thank you for making these available to us. I am now a follower. There is not much to see on my blog yet. LOL!

    1. Hi Jean! Yes, I remember riding the bus with you and Helen! Thank you for your kinds words! I'm ordering supplies today so your timing is perfect! Maybe we will run into each other at convention this year too! :o)

    2. Sadly Christine I am unable to attend Convention this year due to a family destination wedding in Florida. I do hope to be going in 2015.

    3. At least it sounds like a FUN reason to miss! See you next year! :o)
