We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Favorite Mini Bundle

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop for September.  We are featuring our favorite Bundle from the 2021 Fall/Holiday Mini Catalog.  

Mine is favorite is the Whimsical Tree Bundle which also happens to come in a product suite called Whimsy & Wonder Suite Collection.  I don't know why but there is something that draws me to non-traditional colors for Christmas time and this definitely is that!  Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Misty Moonlight, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow are the featured colors of the fabulous designer series paper (Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP).  

So let's take a look at my project which features a little twist!  It is an Easel Card.

Curvy Christmas

Need a few last minute Christmas cards?  This was comes together super quick and I bet you could make about ten or so in a half hour.  Just use my dimensions. 

Time saving tip... cut everything in batches and cut two pieces of cardstock or designer series paper at a time.  Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer can definitely do that. 

I design my card, deciding exactly how I want it to look then cut all my card bases.  Next I will cut all the background paper or designer series paper (DSP), then any other little bits.  I put everything in stacks and work each stack, one at a time.  This way I am doing all my embossing at once, then all my die cutting at once, and stamping.  Make an assembly line.  It will make things move quicker. 

PicsArt_11-06-12.29.26

Card Details:

  • Card base is Thick Whisper White card stock cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
    • remember to score the Thick White at 4-1/4" before folding in half
  • DSP cut 3-1/2" x 5-1/4" and adhere to card base
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-1/2 x 5-1/4" then die cut with Curvy Die
  • Stamp lines of stars in Crushed Curry and words in Cherry Cobbler on above piece then adhere
  • Wrap a piece of ribbon around front flap, add a bow and your down

Easy Peasy!
