  • Wrap a 4-1/2" piece of the Real Red Faux Linen ribbon across to cover where the two card stock pieces meet and top of banners

  • With 3 x 3 Basic White, die cut and form the envelop die.  Adhere to card front and adhere purple heart

Have fun with this project.  Change up the card base colors or the Sweet Talk DSP.   Even the ribbon that you use... this is a very interchangeable card.

In The Moment - Pop out Window Card

New from the January-June 2022 catalog, "In The Moment" stamp set is sure to be a favorite.  The images and phrases are perfect for a little encouragement. This is a great project to use the Layering Diorama Dies and Blending Brushes.

Here is a direct front view and then what the back of the card looks like:

Picsart_22-01-13_13-07-09-985    Picsart_22-01-13_13-14-58-909

Card Details:

  • Basic White Card Stock (CS):
    • 2 pieces 5-1/2 x 6-1/4
    • 3-3/4 x 5
    • 4 x 5-1/4
    • 3 x 3 or scrap piece for girl
  • Pumpkin Pie CS:  2 pieces  4 x 5-1/4
  • Ink:  Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight,  Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Black  Memento
  • Blends Alcohol markers:  Ivory, Crumb Cake, Soft Sea Foam, Daffodil Delight, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Cherry Cobbler

  Accessories:  Blending Brushes, Layering Diorama Dies

Front of Card:

  1. Score both 5-1/2 x 6-1/4 pieces of Basic White the same.  1/2" and 1" both ends - on the long side of CS (better to fold score lines later).  Making scores lines, will create a center section that is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 (like a standard card front) so you can use that a reference to make sure you scored correctly. 
  2. Die cut one of above pieces with Layering Diorama Die in center of CS (I laid my at an angle)
  3. Take 4 x 5-1/4 Pumpkin Pie CS, center on back of above piece, lightly trace the Diorama opening from front.  Use the next smaller Diorama die that fits in the tracing, and die cut.  
  4. Fully adhere Pumpkin Pie CS to Basic White making sure you can see the Pumpkin Pie outline from the front
  5. Find stamp with word "relax".  Use Basic Black Stampin' Marker to color "relax" only and stamp on bottom, right side of card front. 
  6. Stamp girl with Memento Ink and color using Stampin' Blends.  Fussy cut and adhere her to front of card.  NOTE:  watch where you put adhesive, only needs to be on bottom portion. 

Inside Scenery:

  1. Take 4 x 5-1/4 Basic White CS and color scenery with Blending Brushes (Balmy Blue at bottom, then go up and blend in Pool party, Pumpkin Pie and finally, Daffodil Delight at top. 
  2. Color birds only, from girl stamp, with Basic Black Marker and  stamp three sets of birds
  3. Adhere scenery piece to center of 2nd piece of 6-1/4 x 5-1/2 Basic White CS
  4. On other side of this same 5-1/2 x 6-1/4 Basic White, you can add the other Pumpkin Pie CS and the 3-3/4 x 5 Basic White with stamped sentiment

Putting it all together:  Place adhesive ONLY on the outer edges of the Basic  White CS.  I found it best to line up one side then the other.  You can now do your folds and crease with a bone folder.  The 1" score line will be a mountain fold.  The 1/2" score line will  be a valley fold and will create tab  ends and this is what you fold in to mail in a regular A2 envelope. 

Just a reminder it's Sale-a-Bration Time!

Be rewarded for buying what you love during Sale-a-Bration time.

How it all comes together:

  1. Fold your Pool Party 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 in half to form the card base
  2. Adhere Petal Pink layer piece then your 3 pieces of DSP
  3. On Basic White, stamps 1 large flower cluster, 2 small flowers, 3 leaf cluster (around large flowers) and several of the other leaves in the stamp set.  I did 5 larger ones.  Then fussy cut all those out.  Make sure to leave room to stamp the "Hello" which I did my masking off the word "Friendly".  (Masking:  I laid a sticky note over the word I did not want, inked up the Hello, removed the sticky note)
  4. Color all the flowers and leaves
  5. Die cut the 2 labels with the Stitched Rectangle label dies
  6. HELLO Label:  adhere the white to the Pool Party and add flower clusters in the corners.  Adhere label to card front with Dimensionals
  7. Square Vellum Doily:  using your Dark Pool Party Blends Marker, color the doily and add to card front
  8. Flower Cluster:  I start by adhering 3 of the leaf sprigs to back of flowers.  Next zig zag the Petal Pink ribbon back-n-forth adhering each layer as you go (glue dots work great).  Adhere the flower cluster with Dimensions
  9. Tuck some extra leaves around the flower cluster
  10. Add Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some sparkle!
