Pals Blog Hop…Cut It Out!


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for August 2016.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! cutting tools. There are so many wonderful punches, framelits and edgelits available that help make papercrafting more detailed and fun! We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

Stampin Up Detailed Floral Thinlits Happy Birthday fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the Detailed Floral Thinlits…They are so elegant and versatile!  I purchased them as a bundle with the Floral Phrases Stamp Set and Saved 10%.  Woo Hoo!

This card measures 4 1/2 x 4 1/4 and has a fun fold to it. I started out with a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Night of Navy card stock and scored it at 4 1/2 and 9.  I placed the floral thinlits die along the edge (just past the 9 inch score line) and Cut It Out using the Precision Base Plate and Big Shot. The die brush made it easy to remove the small pieces from the die.

I heat embossed Happy Birthday from Stylized Birthday Stamp Set using VersaMark, Gold Embossing Powder, and the Heat Tool.  I love to heat emboss and chose gold to match the pretty bow paper clip embellishment which I used to keep my card closed. Next I cut a 4 1/4 x 3 inch piece of whisper white to match the die.  I used the die to position my edgelit and secured it with a piece of washi tape then Cut It Out with the Big Shot. Perfect fit! I adhered it to my card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added some White Perfect Accents and stamped the inside using the flower from Floral Phrases stamp set and the sentiment from Garden in Bloom stamp set.  I thought this was the perfect sentiment for this special card.

A special card needs a special envelope and this custom envelope was a breeze to make.  I simply trimmed 1/2 inch off each side of our standard envelope and sealed the sides with the Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape.  I stamped the same flower I used on the inside on the envelope flap and my envelope coordinates beautifully with my card.
