VIDEO: Stampin' Up! Pick of the Patch Floating Card Tutorial

If you've been following me for awhile, you know I love "easy" cards. My style is clean and simple and this fun fold card fits that perfectly! I was inspired by a couple swap cards that I received this year and couldn't wait to try out this "Floating Card" again. I've made it in years past and always called it a "Cut Apart Card" because that's exactly what you do! You'll start with a long card base and cut a the "middle" out of the card front and then turn it and use it to bridge the top and bottom of the card.

You can use any designer paper and stamp set. Her are two that I created using this beautiful fall plaid from the Them Bones designer paper. This or That? Leave a comment and let me know which version of this card you prefer -- the Pick of the Patch pumpkins or Bag of Bones skeleton.

Now it's your turn! Prepare the supplies above using the stamps, ink, and paper you have at home.

My favorite is the Funny Skeleton. It's not scary! I did pin this because I love the floating design. Thank you for sharing, Julie.
