SU!Snow Wonder w/ Snow Time Dies

Hi Everyone! Hurricane Fay was in the area yesterday ~ dropped lots of rain and w-i-n-d-y. Thankfully no damage; some branches down but that’s about it. Whew! Today is Saturday and I’m calling it Snowman Saturday. Yep – Snowman… right after a hurricane, right? Ha! I was ready and wanting to play with the Snow Wonder stamp set and it’s coordinating Snow Time Dies. And I have created two cards for your cards for your pleasure. Let’s take a look.

Snow Wonder stamp set
Snow Time Dies
Snow Wonder and Z Fold

Aren’t these fun? Let me tell you about card #1 first… Seaside Spray card base is the standard 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 scored @ 4 1/4. Layer a Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 panel that has been run through the Evergreen Forrest 3D embossing folder  (this is a stunning embossing folder!). I ruffled the edges with my scissors then adhered with Stampin Seal, but left the edges free. Next I stamped the snowman from the new Snow Wonder stamp set in stamped off once Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then colored him with our colored pencil: Granny Apple Green, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Pumpkin P{ie and Balmy Blue. Use the blender pen for the hat to smooth the lines of the pencil. Then die cut this with the Snow Time Dies and adhere with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White in Seaside Spray and die cut with the Snow Time Dies. I cut another banner out of Seaside Spray, cut it in half lengthwise and adhered to the back of the Whisper White. Put this on dimensionals as well and adhere to the card front. Add those sweet little Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes and the front is done.

Snow Wonder stamp set

For the inside I took another panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White and stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce, stamping off once on a scrap first. Then I stamped the sentiment in Seaside Spray, adhered this panel to the inside with liquid glue and done, done done.

Card #2 is a Z fold card again and is so much fun to do – so many options for variety. Just look at yesterday’s card that was a double Z fold to get an idea… anyway, today’s second card… Seaside Spray cut 4 1`/4 x 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 on the long side. Highland Heather is 3 1/4 x 10 scored at 2 3/4 x 5 1/2. The Whisper White panels are 3 x 4 1/4 and (2) 3 x 2 1/2.

Snow Wonder stamp set #2a

The largest panel is the adorable snowman, colored just as card #1. I added the adorable adhesive- backed snowflakes then the sentiment stamped in Balmy Blue. These were just scraps. The next panel is Snowflake Splendor DSP (awesome DSP!).The wreath is stamped off once in Shaded Spruce and the ribbon highlighted with Wink of Stella. The sentiment comes from the Dove of Hope stamp set and stamped in Highland Heather. The bottom panel is from Snow Wonder stamp set in Seaside Spray. The snowflakes were stamped in Versamark then heat embossed in white. Once the embossing had cooled, I used a sponge to very lightly color the snowflakes with Seaside Spray. Adhere each of the white panels in the appropriate place on the Highland Heather Z fold. This gets adhered to the Seaside Spray, top panel first, but only a portion of it… center it on the SMALL section of the Seaside Spray and add liquid glue just to the upper  panel. Lay the entire card flat and adhere the bottom panel. And you are done! Wasn’t that easy? Two cards so different from the other but using the same stamp set. YAY!

SU! Guilded Autumn Specialty DSP, Double Z Fold

Hello… Today is Fun Fold Friday – at least for today anyway. Fun Folds can be complicated or easy, This one is pretty easy: it’s as though you are creating two cards, one smaller, and putting together. Let’s take a look…


Guilded Autumn Specialty DSP, Double z Fold #1

Is that fun or what? And beautiful? SU! has done it again with their gorgeous coordinating papers. These papers come from the Guilded Autumn Specialty DSP pack in the August ~ December 2020 Mini Catalog. If you want to know how to get your pack of these papers, contact me and we’ll connect!

Now let’s talk about how to put this card together:

  • Crumb Cake  is our card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4 on the long side; cut another piece for the smaller portion 3 3/4 x 6 1/4, score at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4 along the long side
  • Cut Early Espresso (2) 2 x 5 3/8  and 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 for the card base; for the smaller card cut Early Espresso (3) 1 7/8 x 3 5/8
  • Cut Specialty DSP (2) 1 7/8 x 5 1/4, 4 x 5 1/4; for the smaller card cut Specialty DSP (2) 1 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Cut Very Vanilla 1 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Stamp the sentiment on Very Vanilla using Early Espresso ink ~ mine is from Path of Petals stamp set
  • Adhere all Specialty DSP to the appropriate size Early Espresso.
  • Adhere these panels to their respective card bases, including the Very Vanilla sentiment panel
  • Adhere these to their respective card bases EXCEPT THE LARGEST PANEL.
  • Wrap a ribbon around the right edge of this largest panel and tie as knot. Adhere in back with glue dots and also under the knot. My ribbon is from the Guilded Autumn Suite and it is called Mint Macaron 1/2″ Basketweave Ribbon. It comes in a combo pack called the Basketweave Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. Gorgeous! Now adhere this large panel into your card base.

Now it is time to adhere the two cards together.. I find it helpful to use my grid paper for placement.. This NOT difficult… place the smaller card in the center of the larger panel and adhere with liquid glue. TIP: I find it helpful to use my grid paper for centering.

Now close the card with the smaller, loose card flap coming over the top of the base card. Keeping the base card closed, adhere the loose panel with liquid glue. Bingo…

I used my Oval Dies to cut a scalloped oval out of Early espresso. Stamp the appropriate sentiment in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very vanilla (mine is from Good Morning Magnolia stamp set) then die cut with another plain Oval Die. Adhere together with liquid glue. Put dimensionals on the back and attach to the small front card. YAY! Your card is complete and wonderful and ready to send. Mine is going to a family that I have worked with over the last 30 plus years that has done printing for me. The woman died after a very short illness. UGH! Loss is so hard, especially during these physically distant times….

Anyway, back to the card…  for the envelope I adhered a strip of Early Espresso then the additional Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and nothing else. I hope you try making this fun fold. I like all the layering… it adds a ton of elegance to the card.

SU! Gilded Autumn Suite

Hi Everyone – so excited to share today’s card. It is hot as blazes here on the East coast and just thinking fall makes me feel cooler… so here ya go…

Autumn Greetings stamp set
Autumn Punch Pack

SU! does such a great job of coordinating and this product line is no exception. The Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is gorgeous AND there are a couple of papers in that pack that have these fun images of leaves and acorns. I used the Autumn Punch Pack to punch out a bunch of them. I also used a die set from last years catalog that is still available called Gathered Leaves Dies. They were used to die cut three leaves out of Mint Macaron that forms the beginning point of my wreath.

I’ll back up just a bit… Whisper White cs 4 x 5 1/4; die cut a circle with the Circle framelits (I used second to largest). This is your basis for the wreath! While I didn’t do it this time, I would suggest running this panel through the Subtle embossing folder to create a wonderful textured background. Then simply begin layering, beginning with those three die cut leaves. I used liquid glue to adhere all these, curling each one a bit as I went along. Once I completed the wreath, I made a fun bow with Linen Thread and attached that very sweet Acorn Trinket from the suite.  Next I took a piece of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and cut it to fit behind the open circle. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso using the Autumn Greeting stamp set and adhered that panel with liquid glue. This was glued to a piece of Early espresso 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, then adhered to the Terracotta Tile card front (4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2). I adhered two Early Espresso strips to the card front and trimmed the ends. These were simply in my stash.

For the inside, I took a 3 3/4 x 5 panel of Whisper White and Mint Macaron ink to stamp the sweet leaves from the Autumn Greetings stamp set. This was adhered to another panel of Early Espresso cs 4 x 5 1/4 and glued in place to complete the card.

Autumn Greetings stamp set

The envelope got the same treatment of leaves for the card front and the flap got special detail. I ran the Early Espresso 2 1/4 x 6 through the Greenery embossing folder, glued in place on the flap and trimmed it to fit. Voila! Obviously I’m not mailing this one just yet… out of season. But it’s ready to send to someone special.

I couldn’t help myself – got working and made 4 cards! I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder with  6×6 paper, so the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP in this suite was perfect for that. Here are the four cards…

Wonder of the Season Suite

Here are the measurements I used for the One Sheet Wonder:

  • 1 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • 3 x 3
  • 3 x 1 (three of these cut directly under the 3 x 3)
  • that leaves a strip 1 1/2 wide… make four 1 1/2″ squares ~ bingo, four cards!

Card #1

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies #1

I used the 3 x 1 strips adhered to a panel of Cherry Cobbler 3 1/4 x 3 1/2. Additional papers used were Garden Green and Shaded Spruce for the pines, Gold foil for the stag, 3/4″ x about 5″ Cherry Cobbler for the sentiment banner (the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch was used after heat embossing the sentiment), Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack using the Gold trim, and let’s see, Cherry Cobbler ink for the circle element. This stag is stunning!

Card #2

Cherish The Season stamp set
Sounds of the Season Dies

For this card, the obvious is the 1 1/2″ x 5″ strip adhered to Cherry Cobbler 1 5/8″ x 5 1/2″. The pines were stamped in Garden Green, bells die cut rom Gold Foil sheet, pine die cuts from Shaded Spruce, ribbon is Real Red Sheer 3/8″ and finally Red Rhinestone Gems. I think this is my favorite card of the four – love those bells!

Card #3

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies

This ribbon makes the most awesome bows! It is part of the Suite – Ribbon Combo Pack in Shaded Spruce; it’s called Argyle Stain Ribbon. Cherry Cobbler is cut 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, also the banner under the sleigh is 3/4″ by probably 4 1/2″ before using the new Banners Pick A Punch to trim the ends. The sleigh is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and I added Wonderful Gems in Real Red. Also is the Gold 1/8″ cord from the same Ribbon Combo Pack. I wanted it to look like reins!

Card #4

Wonder * Wishes stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies
stag from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack

This card uses the four  1 1/2″ squares, more of the 1″ Argyle Satin Ribbon, stamped circle using Cherry Cobbler ink and the North Pole Wonder Dies to cut out. The stag is a sticker – yes, a sticker… from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack. The background is a Whisper White panel run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I really like this embossing folder!

Stampin’ Up! and DSP

Hi everyone! Monday, Monday – do you remember that song? Don’t ask me why but it’s rumbling through my brain. Goodness… Today’s card is super simple… a show-off of a DSP and some ribbon, a little of this and that. I like the color combo, the simplicity of it and the fact it could serve so many purposes AND that it shows off both sides of the DSP. Let’s take a look…

2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP

Here are the supplies needed to make this quickie:

  • Misty Moonlight cs and ink
  • Bumblebee cs
  • Whisper White cs
  • 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP – Misty Moonlight
  • Elegant Faceted Germs
  • Bumblebee Gingham 1/4″ Ribbon
  • Many Mates stamp set
  • Hooray To You stamp set
  • Ornate Frames Dies

That seems like a long list of supplies, but once the cs is cut, this card will go together licekety-split. Let me tell you how to do it…

Misty Moonlight cs is the card base cut 8 1/2 x 5 12 then scored at 4 1/4. Remove 3 1/4 of what should be the front of the card, so that 1″ is left beyond the score line. Cut the DSP 4 x 5 1/2. Lay the DSP inside the card, folding the 1″ section over it. Now use the adhesive (I used the new Stampin Seal) to run down the far left side of the DSP and the outer rim of the 1″ fold-over. Making certain the edges of the DSP align with the back of the card, close the 1″ fold-over so it adheres to the DSP. Voila! Now add all the fun stuff to make this card special…

Stamp the sentiment from Many Mates stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink onto a Whisper White scrap. Use the Ornate Frames Dies to cut it into a banner then cut another banner out of Bumblebee. The Whisper White banner gets dimensionals and is attached to the Bumblebee banner. Add the Elegant Faceted Gems – I used the white gems, the larger in the center and smaller ones on either side. These are so neat!  Add dimesnionals to the Bumblebee piece as well but set it aside while fussing with the Bumblebee Gingham 1/4″ ribbon. Here’s my TIP for the ribbon: Don’t cut it just yet; lay it where you think you might want it and run just a tiny bit of Stampin Seal to adhere the one section of the ribbon. I try to work the ribbon in about a 2″ space horizontally on the card. Attach as you get the placement just right.  Since Stampin Seal is used on both sides of the ribbon, use very small amounts in order to move it where you want it without tearing the paper – don’t press it down too firmly either. Get the ribbon the way you like it, then place the banner over top and sort of centered on the DSP. Since the banner is on dimensionals, it allows the ribbon bit of give. Now cut the ribbon – and woohoo, your card front is done!


The inside is a Whisper White panel 4 x 5 1/4, with a 1/2″ strip of the same DSP across the bottom. Add the sentiment using Misty Moonlight ink and the Hooray To You stamp set. Adhere the panel with liquid glue to the inside of your card and the card is done…


The envelope gets a bit of stamping from the Hooray To You stamp set and a bit of DSP as well. And that’s it!

2020-2022 In Color DSP

Wasn’t that easy and fun? You can do it too… Stampin’ Up has a a couple of “specials” going on right now. The first is when ordering over $150 double Stampin rewards kicks in – and the buyer receives rewards to get items free from Stampin’ Up!. right then and there! Not only that, but when you purchase from me and your purchase is between $50- $150, you receive a free $10 SU! item of your choice. Use my CURRENT HOST CODE J2E4VDM for that order. If your order is over $150, while you still get the frtee item from me, DO NOT use the Host Code as SU! will give you those double rewards. Sounds awesome doesn’t it! Let me know if I can help you get started… fee free to send me an email to


AND there’s a “joining a team” special as well – look at this cool flyer to get the details…  06.03.20_FLYER_RECRUITING_PROMO_NA

SU! So Much Happy

Hello Everyone! Today’s card is made with the brand new So Much Happy Stamp Set and matching dies… Happy Dies. You are going to love this set… it has so much to offer and I had the best time making today’s card.

And thank you for stopping by… Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop is full of fabulous cards and inspiration. Here’s mine…

So Much Happy stamp set
Happy Dies
Playing with Patterns DSP

Oh so much to share about this card… first of all, masculine or feminine, child or adult – it fits!  Next – the dies (Happy Dies) and paper (Playing With Patterns 6×6 DSP) make this card so easy. And the stamp set ( So Much Happy) allows you to make this not just a birthday card but also a graduation or a celebration of a wonderful person.

Here’s a list of supplies…

  • So Much Happy stamp set (card front and envelope front)
  • Happy Dies (card front)
  • Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP (card front)
  • Whisper White cs (background for card front and inside panel)
  • 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 ( banner on card front and envelope flap)
  • Best Year stamp set (for the inside sentiment)
  • Bumblebee cs and ink (card base and balloons on envelope)
  • Calypso Coral cs (balloon tail and inside panel)
  • Stazon black ink (sentiments)
  • Journaling pen (balloon tails on envelope)

And here’s the how to…

I started by choosing to play with the Playing With Patterns 6×6 DSP – so many fun papers in this stack! Because it already had this wonderful angle design, I followed that angle and used the die cut from the Happy Dies.  OK, what else? I played around with some other options for the balloon and star but returned to the scraps of the Playing With Patterns 6×6 DSP and came up with a match for the balloon tail as well (Calypso Coral) die cut both the balloon and star  and the tail at the same time. :o) Next I stamped the birthday sentiment. Then I wanted just one more accent… the Happy Dies have two dies that do not cut but EMBOSS your paper with a design. I used the one that looks like a broken underscore line and embossed it between the HAPPY and the birthday. Can you see it in the photo? If you put your curser on the photo and enlarge it, it’s visible and really adds a fun touch to the card. I adhered the balloon tail where I wanted it then adhered this DSP panel to Whisper White, put dimensionals on the balloon and star and attached. I wasn’t quite ready to stop – – I die cut the banner twice using the Happy Dies and the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP (Bumblebee). I die cut it twice to add dimension to the banner. This was adhered with small dots of liquid glue. This completed panel was adhered to the Bumblebee cs with dimesnionals. Card front complete!

The inside…

Best Year stamp set

Don’t you love the different fonts in this sentiment?  And the sentiment is pretty darn neat too :o) This was stamped in Stazon black ink onto a Whisper White panel for a very crisp look – using the Best Year stamp set. This in turn, was adhered to Calypso Coral with liquid glue then attached to the card inside, again with liquid glue. Your card is done!

Now for the envelope… let’s take a peek at that envelope again…

So Much Happy stamp set
2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP

I stamped the balloons with Bumblebee ink (new In Color!) and added the tails with my black Journaling pen. The envelope flap got covered with the 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 Bumblebee paper and the card set was done!

Now let me show you one of the other dies in this Happy Dies package that allows you to emboss a pattern on the card. You may need to enlarge the photon to see it though. I stamped the sentiment, added the embossing to the left and at near the bottom of the panel and adhered it to a Calypso Coral panel before realizing it was going in the wrong direction for my card! It’s been saved, have no worries there, but look for the embossing in the photo below.

SU!Thank You with DSP Focus

Hi Everyone! Today’s card was created for our neighbor who so generously gave us unused mulch… of course, I had to cart it uphill to our yard, but hey, it was free…  useful… and needed. So there you have it.😉 We have great neighbors! And I totally cased this card from Amy Koenders!

Here’s the card…

Ornate Thanks stamp set
Ornate Layers Dies

And here’s a list of supplies…

  • Ornate Thanks stamp set
  • Ornate Layers Dies
  • Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color ribbon
  • In Good Taste DSP
  • Neutral 6×6 DSP – Night of Navy
  • Night of Navy ink & cs
  • Whisper White cs
  • Smokey Slate cs
  • Versamark
  • White embossing powder

And here’s how I did it…

I started by die cutting the two rectangles for the front using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered these two together with the new Stampin Seal (it works great… has an end cap so it doesn’t stick to anything else when you put it away. I’m happy with it.) I then adhered them to the card front (Smokey Slate) with the same Stampin Seal. With Night of Navy cs I stamped the card front sentiment with Versamark ink using the Ornate Thanks stamp set, sprinkled it with White Embossing powder and heat set it. TIP… this needs to cool a bit before handling as it’s kinda sticky while still warm. I then die cut it using the Ornate Layers Dies. This was put on dimensionals and set aside. I cut a length of ribbon from the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color spool and adhered it with the Stampin Seal. The sentiment on dimesnionals was placed over the top and centered on the card.

For the inside…

Ornate Thanks stamp set

With a panel of Whisper White cs, I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks stamp set in Night of Navy. I adhered a strip of the Neutral 6×6 DSP in Night of Navy 1/4″ from the bottom and added another strip of the In Good Taste DSP over the top. This was adhered to the Smokey Slate card base and the card was complete!

The envelope…

Ornate Thanks stamp set #3

Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Adhere the Neutrals 6×6 Night of Navy to the envelope flap and the envelope is complete. Wheee. Easy peasy and so perfect for our neighbors.

All of these products may be found in the new 2020-2021 SU! catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and wish to have a catalog, contact me. Either way, here’s a PDF copy for you to browse at your leisure.

Stampin’ Up! NEW Beautiful World

It is Tuesday and just one more day before the 2020-2021n Annual Catalogue goes LIVE! Eek… More new stuff 😁 –  Today’s card features several products that are part of a suite of absolute gems… Beautiful World stamp set with coordinating World  I almost forgot… the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (fabulous!). Let’s take a look…

Beautiful World stamp set
World Map Dies

Basic ingredients for this card…

  • Cinnamon Cider cs
  • World of Good Specialty DSP
  • Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder
  • Brass Foil Sheets

  • Beautiful World stamp set
  • World 0f Map Dies
  • Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
  • Misty Moonlight cs/ ink
  • Very Vanilla cs (for the fussy cut sentiment and inside panel)

While this seems like a lot of items, this card goes together very quickly. – and here’s how to do that… card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

  • Using the fabulous (oh, did I say that already?) Old World Paper 3D Embossing folder, emboss a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP. This paper is thin enough and I don’t think it needs spritzing before putting through the embossing folder.
  • Adhere this with liquid glue to your Cinnamon Cider cs base
  • Die cut the two worlds using the World Map Dies and a strip of the Brass Foil Sheets,
  • Adhere with liquid glue to a card from the World of Good Memories and More Card Pack
  • Put dimensionals on this and adhere to another panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP. Add dimensionals to this and adhere to the card front.
  • Stamp your sentiment from the Beautiful World stamp set with Misty Moonlight on Very Vanilla scrap and fussy cut. Adhere this to the Misty Moonlight strip that was cut with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.
  • Attach the label with liquid glue at the top and mini dimensionals along the bottom. Card front is complete!
  • Now for the inside and the envelope…
  • Stamp the world using the Beautiful World stamp set, stamping off twice with Misty Moonlight on a Very Vanilla panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment using the same set and Misty Moonlight ink, stamping at least twice to darken.
  • Adhere the Vary Vanilla panel to a piece of Misty Moonlight with liquid glue and attach to the card inside.
  • The envelope got this cuter little inkwell with Basic Gray ink and the feather in Misty Moonlight  – looks like an old world pen & ink!
  • Beautiful World stamp set

  • Whee – your card is complete! Isn’t this stunning? (even if I do say so myself) It is such a special masculine card. It could be used for a graduation card, someone changing jobs, someone exploring different options for their life. This particular card is going to someone who just passed a certification for a different direction in their career. I hope they like it!

Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste, Mix and Match

Hi Everyone! Hope you had a nice Memorial Day weekend… it was cloudy and overcast, perfect for yard work, not so much for partying… and with the pandemic, not really possible anyway.Still, so thankful and appreciative to those who served our country, sometimes losing their lives, and those who still serve… Grateful, thankful, appreciative…

Today’s card is masculine! I know, a bit unusual for me. I like the simplicity of this card, yet it still has several elements and dimension. This could so easily be a Father’s Day card or birthday card, or a card of thanks and appreciation. Let’s take a look…

  • Whisper White cs
  • Braided Linen Trim
  • Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
  • Well Said stamp set
  • Ornate Style stamp set

And here’s how to do it…

  • Cut a piece of Misty Moonlight for your card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. Set aside
  • Cut a piece of 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 using the Misty Moonlight color, 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to Whisper White cs 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.
  • Fussy cut a panel of the In Good Taste DSP and adhere to a panel of Whisper White about 1 1/2 width for stability. I like this blue/ white piece as it reminds me of Delft and Bing and Grondahl plates. Does it for you? I put this panel on dimensions and set it aside for now.
  • Next I cut a 1/2 strip of Misty Moonlight for a background for my sentiment. I punched the one end using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.
  • Stamp your sentiment using the Misty Moonlight ink spot provided in the May PP. (I used the Well Said stamp set and taped off the IS YOU. to use for the inside) on a Whisper White scrap, punch the end with the same Lovely You Pick a Punch and adhered to the Misty Moonlight piece.
  • I laid this on the card front and decided something was missing – so the Braided Linen Thread to the rescue! This is a nice masculine type trim and I like the neutral and how it seemed to tie everything together (PUN :)) Add snail to the back of the 2020-2022 In Color DSP and Whisper White panel, placing the trim 3/4 from the bottom of your panel.
  • Since the sentiment is going over the braided trim, cut your dimensionals in half and place on opposite sides so the sentiment panel doesn’t wobble (ask me how I know that!). Once you have your sentiment strip where you want it, adhere over the trim and cut off the extended end.
  • I added three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment panel and felt something was still missing. Braided Linen trim to the rescue again! I cut a length and tied a half knot just beyond the sentiment panel and adhered it with a glue dot. Then I frayed the ends of the braided trim cuz I like the look 🙂
  • Let’s see, did we do everything?   Yikes – remember the In Good Taste panel – it has dimensionals on it ready to be adhered – do that and your card front is nearly complete.
  • Put this entire panel on the Misty Moonlight card base in the very first step and your card front is done… yay.

For the inside…

  • Cut a panel of Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4,.
  • Adhere a 1/2 strip of the 2020-2022 In Color DSP to the right  about 1/4 from the edge.
  • Stamp the rest of the sent (is you.) with the Misty Moonlight ink spot
  • Adhere to the inside of your card with liquid glue

Remember to do your envelope… See photo..

  • I adhered the 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 DSP to the envelope flap and trimmed to fit
  • I stamped this fun decoration that seemed to fit the Delft look – using the Ornate Style stamp set and the Misty Moonlight ink spot.
