A Farewell to 2022!

New Year’s Eve is always a day of reflection for me. I also think about goals for the year ahead. I’m a firm believer in finding joy in every day! I admit some days are harder than others but I try to look for something good in each situation and it’s usually there if I look hard enough. This past year has certainly had it’s ups and downs…I lost my mom, adopted a nine year old rescue dog, remodeled and organized my craft room, and had many fun adventures with family and friends! One goal I definitely have for the new year is to blog more often. I have been creating a lot but unfortunately so many projects never make it on the blog. I miss interacting with you! As I look back at the past year I thought I’d share some of my favorite projects. *Click on the image to view the original post with all the details.

A Special Fold Slimline Card for Andrew’s Birthday

My son’s birthday was a couple of weeks ago. We waited until he visited this weekend to celebrate a belated Easter and birthday together! I find it harder to buy for my son the older he gets! (I also find it hard to believe that I have a 35 year old son!!!! LOL) He lives in Rhode Island and even though our recent move made the drive easier and a bit closer; the tolls add up fast! So this year we decided to gift him with an E-ZPass (hoping he will come visit more often). I love to make my cards coordinate with the gift so I pulled out some retired Designer Series Paper (World of Good) for his card.
Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays masculine slimline card with World Of Good Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love this simple layout for a masculine card! I created a slimline card with a pocket so I could fit the E-ZPass application inside. (You can do the application process online if you have the vehicle registration information but I wanted to enclose his “gift” inside the card.) *This slimline pocket card works great if you want to enclose a check, cash, or “coupon”  inside. (We sometimes make our own coupon gifts, “Good For….”.)  This card design makes it easy to change up the DSP for a feminine card, wedding card, etc.
Stampin' Up! Balloon Adventures slimline masculine card with inside pocket holder for cash or check - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The inside sentiment is from one of my favorite retired stamp sets, Balloon Adventures. It was the perfect choice to go with this “travel” gift set. I like to change it up and add a little more interest by stamping on DSP when possible. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
Here’s the details to make this card:

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card Base – Basic Black: 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 3 1/2 and 7
  • Designer Series Paper – Front of Card: 3 1/4 x 5 1/8, cut 2 @ 3 x 1 5/8
  • Designer Series Paper – Inside card: 1/2 x 8 1/2 (pocket), 3 x 4 1/2 (sentiment)
  • Designer Series Paper – Envelope: cut 3 @ 1 x 3 1/2

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Fold and burnish card base. Staple inside pocket on ends. Cover staples with DSP strip.
  2. Stamp sentiment on DSP. Adhere the 3 DSP pieces to front of card. *I added a special touch using Black Matte Dots to the map DSP to show the travel route from state to state.
  3. Stamp sentiment on DSP, cut with Stitched Rectangle Die, adhere inside card.
  4. Adhere DSP strips to the front of the envelope.
