I created this masculine congratulations card with the Sale-a-bration set Sprinkled Expressions. This color combo and layout were inspired by samples in the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog.
I like the color on color here with the stars stamped in Not Quite Navy ink on Not Quite Navy card stock and then layered on a larger square of the same color. Dimensionals to elevate the stamped cardstock makes this layering work! (Dimensionals are double-sided adhesive foam dots.) Also, “You did it!” is used for the background and the focal point.
When punching out the focal point, remember to stamp first and then turn your punch over so you can see the placement of your stamping in the punch ‘window’. This makes for accurate stamping every time. And Paper Snips, Stampin’ Up!’s thin-bladed scissors, make it really easy to cut out the highlighted words.
With a Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and a Top Note Bigz Die it’s easy to add a decorative interior for including a personalized note. This is the inside of the embossed love card I showed you in the previous post. And making five to ten at a time saves you time later. Just pull a die-cut Top Note from your stash whenever you need one!
During Sale-a-bration you can invest in the Big Shot and a Top Note Bigz Die and earn two FREE stamp sets or other fun products of your choice.
“Stunning!” That’s how a friend described the background of this card at my stamp camp on Tuesday. And those stunning results are easily achieved with the Finial Press Textured Embossing folder. The same embossing folder was used to create the Cherry Cobbler heart. After punching it out the the textured cardstock with the large heart punch, the heart’s surface was run across a white craft padto create the contrast.
The Love tag was created with the scallopoval punch and the extra large oval punch. Love was punched with the scallop oval punch and then layered on top of the large oval punch. Then I punched a scallop oval of Cherry Cobbler clipped it in half and adherred it under the tag hanging out on the ends with brads to decorate it.
