Hello my crafty friends and thanks for popping in!
Today I would like to share another card I have created using the Slim Sayings Bundle. There is a masculine challenge over in the World Card Making Group on Facebook and I thought this Bundle would be perfect!
This card does require quite a bit of die cutting but once you've done that, it's quite simple to put together. And the great thing about this, is you will have lots of extra pieces to make at least two more cards as you will see below.
Supplies You'll Need:
- Slim Sayings Bundle
- Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow
- 2 pieces of Co-ordinating DSP - I've used paper from Bloom Where You Are Planted and Beauty Of The Earth
- Inks: VersaMark
- Colouring Accessories: White Embossing Powder
- Embellishments: Linen Thread
- Tools: Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Paper Trimmer, Snips, Heat Tool
- Adhesives: Tombow Liquid Glue, Dimensionals
How To Assemble:
- Create a card base using Very Vanilla cardstock measuring 8 1/2" x 7" and score this at 3 1/2" on the 7" side.
- Using the chevron shape die, die cut one each in the Night of Navy, Mossy Meadow and Cinnamon Cider cardstock and also one in each of the co-ordinating DSPs. You will have five all together. Put all these pieces somewhere safe as we will need them for the card front.
- Take the Night of Navy die cut and adhere this onto the card front.
- Using the negative pieces from the other die cut frames, create a pattern and once you're happy, adhere these in using Tombow Liquid Glue.
- On a scrap of Cinnamon Cider cardstock stamp your greeting in VersaMark and heat emboss with White Embossing Powder and trim to your preference.
- Trim a piece of Night of Navy cardstock slighty larger (mine is 1/16" on all sides) and glue behind the stamped greeting. Add Dimensionals to the back, remove the backings but DO NOT ATTACH to the front of the card just yet.
- Take a piece of Linen Thread and create a loop and with help of the Dimensionals, stick both the looped thread and the stamped greeting together at the same time.
- Feel free to decorate the inside of your card if that is your preference.
Now, because I had so much cardstock and DSP leftover and I didn't want it to go to waste, I went and made two more cards and I still have heaps left to make at least another. I used the Cinnamon Cider frame and the Mossy Meadow die cut frame again on Very Vanilla card bases and because the DSP also co-ordinated with those colours, I didn't need to die cut more paper. Stampin' Up! is great like that!
I now have at least three masculine cards in my card collection for those last minute birthdays that seem to come up unexpectedly.
