Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

For more tips on creating with the border dies & foldout cards, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/wxX94X84kUo.

Instructions:
Card size: 5 X 7” Start by picking and cutting paper to fit all sides of foldout card, (see Emma Lou’s Video on perfectly matching curved edges when cutting paper).  Cut the top of the back section of card with the Plain edge of the Classic Border Basics Die.  Cut the scallop border from Fleur Border Basics X 3 for each side (to have a nice finish on both side, you could get by with just 3 for one side and leave the backs rough) out of kraft card stock to match card base.  Cut the back border with the 2 leaf borders from the Delicate Border Basics die set.  Glue papers and borders onto each side of the foldout panels.  Cut little grassy knolls for each page using the plain edge die of the Fleur Border Basics on green card stock, sponge Leaf Green on the edges then glue each to the bottom of each panel.  Cut 2 pockets from kraft card stock using the Fleur Borders and Pockets Die.  Fussy cut one label panel from decorative paper for a sentiment tag to place in 1 of the pockets. Cut 1 of the teeter totter squirrels out of the decorative paper
Stamp sponge color and die cut several sets of blossoms using both Rose Madder and Majestic Violet Inks, sponge Rose Madder flowers with Pink Peony and sponge Majestic Violet flowers with Pearlescent Purple.  Die cut.  Stamp Leafy Accents and the leaves from the Oakberry Blossoms set with Fern Green and sponge color with Leaf Green then die cut.  Use the Floral Basics Mold for the flowers and the Leafy Accent Mold for the Leafy Accent leaves (see Emma Lou’s Video for using the Shaping Molds).  Stamp and die cut all the squirrels and the squirrel cottage (on the cottage, stamp and die cut 2 or 3 times to do layers for dimension) using black ink on white card stock.  Use Copic Markers to color.  Stamp and die cut all the other flower blossoms then color.
Finish shaping flowers using the Flower Shaping kit, insert stamen, glue and let dry.  Start decorating each panel by placing the squirrels. Front panel outside and inside have the teeter totter squirrels (1 set cut from paper to make it easier). Place a few blossoms around coming from the ground then make a small flower arrangement at the top left (outside) and small acorn arrangement top right on the inside. 2ndpanel is just paper on the back and the squirrels with the acorn giving and acorn basket on the inside.  Make another small flower arrangement at the top right. 3rd panel on the outside, place the tire swing squirrel at the left top and some blossoms growing from the ground at the bottom then arrange flowers and leaves top left to right.  3rd panel inside, glue the kraft pockets to each side at the bottom leaving opening to place tags in. then glue the blossom squirrel sitting in a big flower and the reaching up squirrel on top of the right kraft pocket.  Place hand cut tag into the left pocket.  On the back panel, glue the base layer of the cottage on and then pop up a layer of the scaled bottom and a popped up layer of the window frame and mama squirrel on top of the base for more dimension.  Add another layer of the butterfly shaping wings up.  Add some coneflowers to the ground and then make another acorn and flower arrangement at the top right.  Most of the 3D flowers should show when panels are all the way closed and card should lay fairly flat.

How about a birdhouse this morning?
I used a Manzanita branch from our yard and then added some branches 
from the Merry and Bright collection at the ends.  I glued some real pine
cones on as well as used some stamen for berries.
I had some crystal beads on ribbon to make icicles on the house,
lots of snow pen with glitter for snow.

Project size is approximately 6 1/2" X 5 1/2" X 5” including branch. Cut house out of white card stock using the template copied onto paper. Cut it out of decorative paper as well except for roof and floor.  Cover a chipboard coaster with decorative paper.  Glue decorative paper to cardstock and put the house together (use glue for strength). Hand cut a frame for the door.  Cut scallop border from Border Essentials to cover all edges and corners.  Cut a fence border from Border Essentials for all the way around the bottom.  Glue house to base (covered chipboard) and then glue roof on.  Cute scalloped border from the Window Box Elements several times for the tiles on the roof and glue tiles onto roof.  Glue beaded ribbon (found in the notions section of a fabric store) to underside of the roof all the way around house for icicles.  Glue branch onto base (I also wired it to the house).  Add rock candy stamen to the sides of house (like plants) and also glue a grouping in front of branch base.
Stamp, die cut and color the branches and the Cardinals and Holly using black ink on white card stock and Copic Markers to color.  Stamp, die cut and sponge color on the Poinsettias and Holly leaves using Magenta Hue and Fern Green ink on white card stock color with Orchid Brilliance and Leaf Green, then form using the mold (see video).  Glue some stamen (hot pink) to holly leaves in about 3 or 4 sets, let dry.  Use the Snow Pen to add snow to holly and berries, branches and pine cones, add glitter before heating to puff.  Add glitter to poinsettias and Prills to the centers of poinsettias.  Glue branches, Cardinals, pine cones, holly and berries to Manzanita branch then add poinsettias to Manzanita and to the little house front and left side near corner.  Glue piece of branch and poinsettia to lower right side of house to finish.

Matt.25:34-40
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
40 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,[f] you were doing it to me!’
