My friend, Sally Yarzebinski, made this card for me to post while I am on the Stampin’ UP! Norway Incentive Trip. I just smiled from ear to ear when I saw it. It’s so fun and colorful. Each of Sally’s 1-1/4″ polka dot squares was run through the Die Cut Machine with the Stitched with Whimsy Dies after she cut them. Now, if you knew Sally…that is nothing for her to do- she is very detailed and precise- the one with the messiest grid paper at class as she checks how each image stamps before she stamps:) I have even seen her fussy cut when there is a die available! I LOVE HER- always a kind text or email after class, too.
I love masculine stamp sets- or should I say those motifs most guys love because many women fish and love the outdoors and sports! I know many gals who love to fish!
It opens up like this:
Here is a video of how I made this:
Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, Folded mechanism: 5-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 1-3/4″, 3-1/2″, 7-1/2″ and 9-1/4″ on the 11″ side, DSP on left side: 1-1/2″ x 5″, DSP on flaps: (3) 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″, Bordering rectangle flaps around DSP: 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″
I was inspired by this beautiful card my dear talented friend, Linda Mriso, shared with me:) When I said I needed help with my trip coming up and surgery in the future, Lin stepped up to the plate and hit a home run…you are going to see more of Lin’s cards in future posts. She is such a kind person I bounce card making and even life living ideas off her many times. Thank you, Lin!
I love how Linda put that sentiment on the inside with the border.
I found this Clean and Simple card I made at a Demonstrator Shoebox Swap a few months ago. I thought it would be an idea to share with you. I may tweaked it a tad since a lot of shoebox swaps find me socializing more that stamping right at the moment. LOL. But but my friend, Sarah Rigby, prepped the card for us:)
I added in the diagonal Night of Navy strip above the sentiment, and think maybe another one may look nice between the retired Regency Park DSP and the Cane 3D embossed triangles. A simple stamping of posies finishes off the inside. I am so happy that the Stampin’ UP! Sentimental Park and Petal Park carried over into the Annual Catalog! I have had a lot of fun using it!
