It is hard for me to satisfy all of my readers as I have two loves. One is Stampin' Up! and the other is making 3D designs with my Sihouette Cameo software. I seldom make cards using my Silhouette and I seldom make 3D with Stampin' Up!. I do use almost exclusively Stampin' Up! card stock when I make something 3D because I love the quality of the card stock. It's thick enough to hold up and yet not too thick to be pliable to bend and fold nicely.
I also like the designer series papers and am always drawn to the ones with foil or shiny accents.
Anyway, this is a break from the card making posts you've been seeing. I was in a mood to make something 3D and I found this design in the design store and decided to give it a try.
This is design number 256783 by Snapdragon Snippets.
For the card stock I used Stampin' Up! Early Espresso and Mossy Meadow. The foil accents are from some discontinued Stampin' Up! designer series papers. I told you I liked shiny and foil papers and even when they get dicsontinued I can't seem to let go of them.
This design is not for the faint of heart. It took quite a while to assemble and I'm sorry to say the directions are not always easy to follow. I printed them out and they were 25 pages long and the pictures were hard to see what was being talked about. However, I managed to get it together and it may not be exactly as it was designed but it still looks really cool sitting on a side table in my living room.
I hope you enjoyed todays post. If you are a Stampin' Up! purist please know I will be back with more card making in the very near future and if you're a Silhouette Cameo user stay tuned I am going to try and put more content here for you too.
