Directions

Base card: Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (a different pattern was used so you could tell which ones were for preparing the card) – cut to 8 ½” x 11”, scored at 4 ¼” on the SHORT side and 5 ½” on the LONG side

Turn your designer paper to the side that will be least prominent in the card. Place in the corner of your Grid Paper. Draw a mark on 4” on each side of the corner. Turn your paper 180⁰ and do the same to the other corner.

Place the designer paper on your Stampin’ Trimmer and line up the marks you drew and score. Do the same on the other flap.

Fold the flaps in.

Fold the card in half.

And, then in half again so it looks like these photos. The second photo is of the inside.

Decorative Ribbon Border for front: Very Vanilla Cardstock – 1 ¼” x 6”, punch it out and save the strip of leftover cardstock. Run adhesive down the inside of the front flap. Adhere the ribbon punched strip. Place a small amount of adhesive on the leftover strip and place on top of the punched out ribbon on the inside so that your adhesive will not seal the flap closed when you close the card.

Place adhesive between the two smaller bottom openings and seal.

Front panel saying:

Very Vanilla Cardstock – 1” x 4 ¼”

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper – 1 3/8” x 4 ¼”

Stamp ‘with sympathy’ in Cajun Craze

Front Layered insert:

Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock – 3” x 4 ½”

Very Vanilla Cardstock – 2 ¾” x 4 ¼”

Stamp ‘you’re in my thoughts…’ in Cajun Craze and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist

Inside Bookmark:

Very Vanilla Cardstock – 2” x 4 ½”

Punch with the Scalloped Tag Topper

Stamp the Isaiah 41:10 (it is a very close fit and one period will be left off) and some leaves in Lemon Lime Twist

Cut a 5” piece of Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and loop it through the top of the bookmark. Place it inside of the pocket to make sure it is not too long…adjust as needed.

Front Daisies:

Very Vanilla Cardstock – 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” (2)

Stamp the daisy in Cajun Craze (stamp off once before you stamp on the cardstock).

Punch out with the Daisy Punch

Adhere the two daisies together and adhere to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Add a gold Faceted Gem.

Holiday Catalog Favorites Thailand Achievers Blog Hop

Thailand Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Thailand Achievers Blog Hop.  I am from the United States.  I am excited because I get to show you but a few of my favorite items in the Holiday catalog.  There are so many things I love, but will show you a few in the following project.  Please hop around to all the wonderful demonstrators in this hop.  You will not want to miss their fabulous work.

FullSizeRender

My absolute favorite stamp set in the catalog is Linda Bauwin's Million Dollar Half Full stamp set.  My glass is always half full and so it is a perfect set for me.  I love the Merry Christmas sentiment as well as so many of the stamps.  I will be using it much this Christmas season. 

I hope you are loving the Designer Series Papers in the Holiday Catalog.  I admit that I have a paper fetish and absolutely adore all of them.  I am hoping you do too.  For today's card, I used the Christmas Around The World Designer Series Paper.  I love to travel and so this is my perfect paper for Christmas and it has papers that can be used for other occasions as well which is great.  So versatile!  The top sheet was cut 5 1/4" by 4".  The candle, angel and Santa are all hand cut out from one of the sheets.  A bow tied with both trims in the Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack Helps with the festive look.  And now for the inside:

FullSizeRender 2

The glasses were colored with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker and then Wink of Stella was used to color it in as well.  A shimmery glass of whatever you are having is represented in these glasses.  The single glass is perfect for cutting out.  A tip is to use Thick Whisper White Cardstock so that it does not easily tear.  It also adds extra dimension which is fun.  Lots of Labels dies were used to layer for the sentiment on the outside and the glasses on the inside. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Please subscribe to this blog (at the right) so you do not miss anything.  I am so enjoying this holiday catalog and hope you are too.  Please hop on to the next demonstrator below.  This is a hop where you will want to see every demonstrator's work.
