Shaker Card using Well Written Framelit Dies

Good evening everyone! Another late blog and this one has literally taken me a few days to do due to one thing or another – but I managed. I wasn’t 100% confident with the card although it did turn out okay in the end.

This tutorial uses the new Spring/Summer 2019 Catalogue Well Written Framelit Dies and Meant to Be Cling Stamp Set as well as Basic Gray Co-ordinating Cardstock and Stamp Pad. I have linked these items below should you wish to get your crafty hands on them 🙂  The links will take you straight to my Stampin’ Up! Shop Page 🙂  Please remember that you will qualify for FREE products for each £45 spent on goods 🙂

Instructions:

Card Base / insert

  1. Cut thick whisper white cardstock down to make a 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 square card and round corners using envelope punch board
  2. Cut a piece of grey cardstock down to 5 6/8 x 6 6/8″, again round corners.
  3. Die cut a love heart in centre of both the front of the card and the card layer ensuring they match up centrally.
  4. Using the next size up heart die, cut a piece of acetate and adhere to inside of card.
  5. Die cut your shaker pieces from a piece of gray cardstock.
  6. Place your die cut shaker pieces onto the middle of the acetate away from the edges.
  7. Apply double-sided tape (or glue) around the outside of the heart (on the inside of card)
  8. Cut a piece of normal whisper white cardstock big enough to “line” the inside of your card – add some wet glue to outer area of card inside and add this section making sure it is all even.

Card Front/Sentiment Layer

  1. Apply a piece of whisper white polka dot tulle ribbon to around the left side of grey card layer (see instructions above) before adhering to the card base.
  2. Die cut your foliage pieces and birdies/butterflies from whisper white basic cardstock and adhere to front of card
  3. Add a layered section for your sentiment using the triple banner punch (bottom layer 1.5″ wide, stamping layer 1″ wide)
  4. Stamp sentiment of choice onto white section and trim down so that the sentiment is central
  5. Adhere to gray layer, and again, trim down accordingly.
  6. Adhere to front of card using dimensionals.

  • Adhere embossed images to card front – I placed mine to the right side.

Thank you lovely…friend #Spring/Summer Project Make – Mini Gate-fold Card

photocollage_201911020449624

Tonight I bring you the……. Thank you lovely…friend #Spring/Summer Project Make – Mini Gate-fold Card. I really enjoyed making this “off the cuff” as it wasn’t rehearsed so I do apologise for the 18minute video…

I absolutely love the Needle and Nook DSP especially this Balmy Blue Coloured Design.  It co-ordinates fantastically with the Night of Navy Cardstock and Stampin Ink.  I also made use of my Everyday Label Punch, my Classic Label Punch and my Banner Triple Punch 🙂  I finished off the card with a fantastic sentiment (or three) from both the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set and the Stitched All Around Stamp Set – not to mention the basic rhinestone jewels!

I just love how the products from various catalogues, sale-a-brations, and occasions catalogues can all be used together… this makes life so much easier for us crafters.  Now, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or avid crafter, you too could make this card. Watch my YouTubeTutorial below for some inspiration… and if you would like any of these products, as always, direct links to them are illustrated below.

Thanks and Happy Crafting! Love T x

Instructions

  • Cut your A4 white cardstock down to 4″ x 8″ (you can get a few cards from one sheet!)
  • Score along the longest side at 2″ and 6″
  • DSP layer measures for inside card measures appx 3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to inside of card  (you may have to trim it a little further)
  • IF YOU USE NIGHT OF NAVY AS CARD BASE INSTEAD OF WHITE YOU WON’T NEED TO DO THIS STEP – Cut two pieces of  night of navy cardstock down to 2″ x  4″ and adhere to fronts of card.  Layer both fronts with the DSP which measures 1 7/8″ x  1 7/8″
  • Using the reverse side of the DSP cut a section down to 2″ x 4″ and punch with banner punch.Adhere this layer to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and fussy cut around making sure you leave a quarter inch layer.
  • Stamp out “Thank You” and underneath it “lovely”
