Happy Monday and all that… hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had spectacular weather, so good for working outside some. Today – well, hot and humid once more so working inside will be more productive I’m thinkin’.

Today’s card is super easy, a bit of a fun fold, perfect for using some In Good Taste DSP – which is on SALE for 15% off (more details below).

B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.1

Both of the DSP on this card come from In Good Taste DSP pack and they look great together. One of the things about this card is it can so easily be a masculine card – or not. I appreciate its versatility. This smaller strip of DSP looks as though it has texture, but doesn’t. It also opens to the inside of the card. In other words, The background DSP is a flat surface :O). Here’s how to do this…

  • Night of Navy card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • In Good Taste DSP layer is 4 x 5 1/4
  • Basic White panel 2 1/2 x 10 1/2, with DSP layer (2 1/2 x 5 1/4) adhered to the front of it
  • Basic White panel adhered to card base
  • Add Just Jade strip (1/4 x 5 1/4) left of panel
  • Create sentiment strip
    • stamp sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White strip (1/2 x 3 1/2); angle end.
    • add BW strip to Night of Navy (5/8 x 3 3/4) with liquid glue; angle end
    • add Flowers for Every Season Ribbon in Just Jade to the sentiment strip w/ Seal+
    • put dimensionals on the back of the panel and add to card panel
    • add three Playing with Resin Dots in Just Jade to the left of the sentiment
B’day w/ In Good Taste DSP.2

For the inside… stamp the sentiment in Just Jade ink using the Pansy Patch stamp set again. Add a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the bottom of the panel – and voila! This card is complete.

B’day In Good Taste DSP.3

For the envelope i did some fussy cutting of the In Good Taste DSP to create a fun edge and adhered it to the env envelope flap… done.done.done.

I like how easy this card was to make and how fun to have a different width for the additional panel. If you wanted, you could easily add a Basic White panel (4 x 5 1/4) to the back of the card to have more writing space. Remember this DSP is currently 15% off – see more info below.

Remember that Aug 3 is the start of the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.

July–December 2021 Mini Catalogue

During a portion of the mini catalog, there are also Sale-a-bration opportunities. What that means is when you purchase $50 or $100 worth of products, SU! is offering FREE product in the way of stamps, paper and even a die that are only offered during this time frame: Aug 3 – Sep 30. In other words, purchasing any SU! product during the time of Sale-a-bration will get you FREE product! And remember – you also get an item of choice valued at $10 from me when your purchase is $50 plus (before tax & shipping)

Below is some information about a Sales Tax Holiday for particular states – this is the perfect time to purchase DSP and then in August use that same opportunity to order from me in the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog 😁

US SCHOOL SUPPLY SALES TAX HOLIDAY

Eleven states will be offering a sales tax holiday for school supplies during the months of July or August. Products that are eligible according to the statute include “items normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes.” To see the names of participating states, products exempted from tax, and sales tax holiday dates, click here.

Please note that you must place your order with Stampin’ Up! during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax-free (which is midnight on the first day to midnight on the last day of the tax holiday). Also, keep in mind that this is a state sales tax holiday; the state statute may not apply to county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.

If you have customers who live in states who benefit from the sales tax holiday (yay!), be sure to give them a call and let them know.

Note: Georgia, Louisiana, and Wisconsin have suspended the sales tax holiday for this year.

Thanks for stopping by. May you have a beautiful day. Inspire. Create. Share. Nothing beats a handmade card!
