Each Sunday my Border Buddy Alison Solven and I, create a card using one of our card sketches and share it with you. Today we used the Nature's Harvest stamp set and Harvest Dies.
Calypso Coral is one of my favorite Stampin' Up! colors!
The printed papers are from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper. The Calypso Coral with the new In Color Soft Succulent makes the perfect pairing.
Remember when you paid $20+ dollars for a tag punch that punched on tag? Now you can get 8 different size tags in the Tailor Made Tags Die set #155563 for only $22. Each tag has amazing stitched edges which gives the tag some extra texture and you all know I love texture on my cards.
HAND STAMPED CARD MEASUREMENTS
Card Base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" that is often used in hand stamped cards. It is half a sheet of the 8 1/2" x 11" and scored at 4 1/4".
When using our cardstock it is often best to score the paper before you fold it. What is scoring? Scoring creates a line in the paper which guides the fold. It helps to prevent cracked and sloppy creases and gives you card a professionally finished look. Do you score you cardstock when you stamp?
For easy scoring check out the Simply Scored Tool.
The Calypso Coral paper is 4" x 5 1/4"
The Soft Succulent strip is 2" x 5 1/4"
HARVEST MEADOW DESIGNER SERIES PAPER BY STAMPIN' UP!
The printed paper in the card is from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series paper. Stampin' Up! pretty papers are top quality. If you are creating and 3D paper crafting projects you will find these hold up well to scoring and folding.
The Bumble Bee Gingham ribbon is soft and easy to tie. It will add some brightness and cheer to your card.
You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. I replaced the oval with my tags. The flowers I colored using the Stampin' Blends (Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron). Let your imagination run wild!
All Stampin’ Up!® products were used to create today's card.
