Happy Sunday…..here you go – a wee bit stepped up! I honestly love this card and you betcha that I will make more of them to send put personally as I truly think that it is a classic! You just cannot go wrong with a classic card that has a bunch of “white space” to make a statement!
As I thought….it was going to be a challenge for me to step it up as I was super happy with yesterdays card – I skimmed the comments from yesterday and I took the lead….emboss the white square and that is what I did! Super Simple!
I admit, I was skeptical if it would work because of the detail of the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder but I was proven wrong. It worked like a champ and there are no tips that I can give to you because it was as easy! I follow the tips from the video and it worked like a charm!
Below I have (2) pictures for you that were my secret weapon for creating this card that makes it safe to mail. You know that I adore and use inexpensive fun foam all of the time for larger areas that I like to “lift up”
Please do not get me wrong, I love our Stampin’ Dimensionsals and I am over the moon with the new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals but I find when I have an area that is larger….it is just as easy to cut a piece of fun foam and adhere.
When this goes through the mail…the “solid mass” of the fun foam will be compressed in the envelope….with no “peaks and valleys” from the dimensionals. (I hope that this makes sense)
Here are the dimensions of this sweet card and I hope that you will make it. Please remember if you do not want to make your own custom envelope with the Envelope Punch Board like I did, you could easily use just one of our regular envelopes!
- Card base is a 4 1/4″ square card made out of the Thick Whisper White
- The Pear Pizzazz is a 4″ square
- The White Embossed piece is 3 3/4″…..and then the medallion is from the Eastern Beauty Bundle and also I used the largest circle from the Layering Circle Framelits.
- The sentiment is from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set.
- To make the custom envelope, use the Envelope Punch Board and cut a piece of paper to a 7 1/8″ square and then punch and score at 3 5/8″ with the board (this card size is NOT on the punch board size recommendations – I have a sticky note on the bottom to remember!!!)
I hope that this helps inspire you to make this card. I think that you can see that this is a super simple card….but it has a very classic and “looks hard” feel. I do know that the one thing we all struggle with is the TIME ELEMENT…..and again, I GET THIS because I am just like you.
As I share yesterday….I was not sure how I would step it up and truth be told I never made it into my work area until this morning as I have been having FUN FAMILY FUN with the peeps…and this took no time to whip up – the typing and editing of the pictures is the piece that takes the time!
Well…..OFF I GO….into the kitchen to make Blueberry Pancakes from the picking yesterday – we knocked a punch off of the to-do list but the tennis did not happen – we decided to have a breakfast feast and then play! (hmmmmmm, we’ll see how that goes)
The one thing that we did that was not on the list and it was FABULOUS was….we set off fireworks – I wish that I could have shared some pictures but I totally forgot to take any as I was in my glory of being together! Peep James loves to do this and because we live in the middle of nowhere…..we can have some beauties…..my Dad was so happy to be with all of us and he was amazed with the color and beauty of the fireworks!
Have a great day and I hope that no matter where we are in life….this sentiment of You’ve got this is a great one!
