SU Perennial Birthday Diagonal Split Card Video Tutorial

March 19, 2018

Happy Monday, friends!
It’s funny how I have been making cards for over 15 years now
but some older techniques are new to me since I have never used some of them!
I tried out the Diagonal Split technique on this card using the SU Perennial Birthday stamp set.

I made a video for you showing how I made this fun card.
I have a few shadows lurking since I am still working on lighting at night…



Here are the measurements for cutting the split out of the front  4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of the card:

I drew the black lines around my party blowers
because I had a little boo-boo so don’t think you are missing a stamp!
I even made the lines uneven on purpose…or at least that is the story I am going with…

SU Truly Tailored Gift Card Holder

March 2, 2018

I was challenged to make a card using supplies given to me by my upline last month for an online event. If I recall correctly, I was given card bases of Night of Navy and Very Vanilla cardstock, a panel of Tranquil Tide Cardstock, various 3″ x 4″ pieces of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, some Linen Thread and a button. We were to use stamped images from our SU Truly Tailored stamp set on our card.

I have to admit….I did not do it in the time frame,
and did not use the Linen Thread and button but…
I did get it done!!!

I made a gift card holder as my project.
I just folded back the front of the card (in half at 2-3/4″) and trimmed off the end 1″ of the flap
before I adhered it just on the top and bottom so the gift card could slip in.

Super easy to do and used the DSP in a nice coordinated way…what do you think?
I really love the colors in this DSP especially the bold ones I chose on this card.

Taking a second look at a card…SU Hold on to Hope

February 28, 2018

This is a NEW post…read on…

So, I made this card, I liked it, and I posted it…remember?

And then…I kept looking at it and wondered what was off…do you ever do that?

Aha! I mistakenly thought the ribbon was black with silver in it
(late night stamping can do that)
…well, the Sale-a-bration Shimmer Ribbon is gray! So I revamped my card…

Isn’t it a totally different look?
I still like the black on the card, but prefer the Basic Gray card base!
What do you think?
