I had to continue my sharing of the great convention with another card that I loved so much that I had to share it in a class last week. I really wanted to start playing with my goodies from the Holiday catalog but I couldn’t quite let go of summer yet, and so I gravitated to this cute idea.
Card designed by Sherrie Schintz
I loved how this card uses all 5 of the 2013-2015 In Colors together and after you emboss them with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, they are pretty cheery wouldn’t you say?
We added some of the flowers from the Flower Shop bundle (which includes the stamp set and the posy punch) and of course a bit of glitz with a rhinestone in the center of each.
Now, I loved the card, but I wanted to add a little bit of something, so we all lined an envelope by creating our own matching designer paper. Now, when playing with the liners recently I noticed that if you use designer paper that has a dark pattern, you can sometimes see it through the front of your envelope. So this was an example of using Whisper White cardstock and stamping one side with your preferred image (in this case, we stamped the same flower images in a random pattern).
Then, grab your NEW, AWESOME Envelope Liners! Sigh, I love these things…
They come in 3 sizes:
1. A2 – to fit 4.25” x 5.5” cards
2. Notecards – to fit the 3.5” x 5” cards from the Stampin’ Up! notecards & envelope set
3. Square envelopes – to fit 3” x 3” cards
So, we cut our Whisper White paper to 6”x6” (so you can get 4 out of a 12×12 piece and stamped our flowers. Then cut it out using the largest envelope die. Because you have white on the back, you don’t see anything through the front of your envelope, but on the inside you have lots of cute flowers!
Plus, the liner stops just short of the adhesive on the envelope, so you still have the gummy to seal your envelope when you are ready. Sweet, huh? So, grab these dies and get creative and I know you’ll love the results!
