Hello friends. Today I wanted to show and give you step by step instructions for a handmade thinking of you card that I made with the Grassy Grove bundle from the 2022 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. I have also used the Saleabration Special Moments sentiment set. You can get this awesome set FREE with a $180 order until March 16th. I'll give you more details about Saleabration later in the post.
Here's today's card. I really love how it turned out. I have only used the Grove dies part of the bundle here, but I know I will use both parts of the bundle, so I wanted to save the 10% on both (yes demonstrators get these discounts too, as well as an extra 20-25% off at least!).
How beautiful is that paper behind the die cut? That's the amazing New Horizons 6x6" paper pack (find it HERE in the online store). There are 12 gorgeous watercolour like landscape scenes. It's soooooooo beautiful!
So let's get you step by step instructions to make this card. Before I do that, I wanted to invite you to become a subscriber to get additional inspiration from me and advance notice of online classes, clearance and retired product sales.
Step by Step Instructions for Grassy Grove Card (all products used are linked at the end of the post)
- Start with a side folding standard size Crumb Cake card base (for Australia that's 1/2 an A4 sheet cut vertically and folded / burnished with bone folder in the middle.
- Cut a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock 1/4 cm smaller on all sides than the base card (for Australia the measurement for the Evergreen Cardstock would be 10cm x 14.3cm).
- Centre the large grove die onto the Evergreen layer and die-cut.
- Insert the die cut piece into the Bark embossing folder and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine again. Make sure you do the embossing last, otherwise the die-cutting will flatten the embossing.
- Cut a piece of the New Horizons DSP 1/4 cm smaller on all sides than the Evening Evergreen piece (for Australia that would be 9.5cm x 15.8 cm). Attach this to the base card with Multipurpose Glue or Stampin' Seal.
- Attach the die-cut and embossed Evergreen Elegance card over the top of the New Horizons DSP using Multipurpose Glue or Stampin' Seal.
- Cut the two deer from a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and use a sponge dauber to apply some Crumb Cake ink to the very edges of each deer.
- Attach the deer to the left of the grove opening as shown (I used Dimensionals to attach)
- Stamp the Thinking of You sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set (pictured and linked below), in Evening Evergreen onto a Shimmery White cardstock strip 1.8cm (just under 3/4" wide). Using this width allows you to punch the ends using the amazing Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (pictured and linked below).
- Attach the sentiment to the card with Dimensionals and then attach a double bow of linen thread.
