Once I start creating with a suite of products (or a certain fold), I have a hard time putting it aside. Today’s cards are more flap fold cards like the ones I shared on August 19th and August 20th. But they are made with the designer papers, stamps and ribbons from the Playing with Patterns Suite – the suite that is featured in the latest All Star Tutorial (that you can earn this month or purchase), that I used to make my Halloween treat containers in the All Star blog hop in my September 3rd post, and that Tricia Josephs created with in her Showcase Stamper projects that I shared on August 2nd.

Below are my Playing with Patterns flap fold birthday cards – a little different than the other two flap folds I’ve shared in that these are positioned in landscape format.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

This first one is my favorite because I LOVE the Coastal Cabana blue color & the ribbon in this combo pack is stunning!

OH! Here is what the flip side of the open card looks like. Notice that I stamped the fun sparkle image at the top of the circle sentiment piece. You don’t see this when the card is closed. Sorry I forgot to mention that above.

And here is the Calypso Coral version. I did the ribbon a bit differently on this one because I wanted to use the thin Night of Navy Ribbon in that combo pack, but it was to flimsy to tie the card shut on its own. I’m not sure I’m a fan of how I used it. But oh well. What do you think?
