Whisper White (1) Cut 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and measure over 3" and down 2" as before and cut off the diagonal.
Whisper White 2-1/2 x 1 3/4 for inside triangles formed by the fold. Cut this piece in half at a diagonal, corner to corner.

Two squares were cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies; one in Basic Black, one in the same designer paper.
You will need extra Whisper White for stamping and fussy cutting.
Be generous with your ribbon so that you can tie a good bow...20-24".

Cardmaking 101 Video: Making Cards with Few Supplies

Notecardsyoutube-thumbnailToday's Cardmaking 101 video is in response to a question received regarding making simply styled note cards with a few supplies.  Here's hoping that it will be helpful for many of you as well. 

Here's the quick video...

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Tip: Measure the image that you will stamp and cut the card stock 1/4" larger for length and width.
  • If backing the stamped image with a coordinating card stock or patterned paper, cut the layer 1/4" larger (length and width) than the image piece.
  • If using a back layer of card stock or designer (patterned) paper for the front of your card base, cut it 1/4" smaller than the length and width of your card front.

A Jar of Flowers Birthday Card

Jar-of-flowers-birthday-card

Here's a birthday card idea with the beautiful new Jar Of Flowers Bundle [154064] from Stampin' Up!  This cardmaking project was featured on my new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog Launch on Facebook. 

These bunches of flowers can be used with or without the jar so it is super versatile. 

Here are some of the details:

  • The Bumblebee Cardstock [153077] base is cut 5-1/2 x 8-1/2.
  • The Poppy Parade Cardstock [119793] layers are cut 4-1/8 x 5-7/8 and 2-5/8 x 4-1/8.  Plus, you'll need a small piece to stamp and die cut the sentiment.
  • Whisper White Cardstock [100730] is cut 2-1/2 x 4 and embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder [152725].
  • You will also need more whisper white for jar and flowers.
  • The jar was stamped and then the stems over top.  The stems were stamped *twice to make these reach the bouquet at the top. 
  • *The lower stems were masked off with a post it note to stamp the stems at the top of the jar.
  • The bunch of flowers was stamped, colored, then fussy cut to adhere to the top of the punched jar on the embossed layer.

Here are the supplies used for this card.  Just click the links to shop! Be sure to check out the promotions for this month on this post.

Many have asked about this beautiful designer series paper.  It's called See A Silhouette and is still available... While Supply Lasts!
