Collar Fold Friendship Card

Collar Fold Friendship Card

Today, I want to share with you the Collar Fold Technique.

I had never tried this technique when the Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share this type of card.

Since I didn’t have a clue how to do it, I do what I always do when I need creative inspiration…

I searched Pinterest for “Collar Fold” and lickity split, up popped tons of inspiration and instructional videos!

I love the fact that this technique is…

  1. Super Easy
  2. Can be used for any occasion
  3. a Great way to use Designer Series Paper

So…

Let’s see what the STARS have created!

 

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the sentiment and font, I love the combination of cursive and type
  • Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, which will be retiring soon
  • the Collar Fold allows you to enjoy both sides of this beautiful paper

For all the strong and beautiful people in your life, especially the women.

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful stamp set. For all the strong and beautiful people in your life, especially the women.

Today, I want to share with you the Recessed Panel Technique.

I had never tried this technique when the Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share this type of card.

Since I didn’t have a clue how to do it, I do what I always do when I need creative inspiration…

I searched Pinterest for “Recessed Panel” and lickity split, up popped tons of inspiration and instructional videos!

I love the fact that this technique is…

  2. Can be used for any occasion
  3. a Great way to use Designer Series Paper

So…

Let’s see what the STARS have created!

Stamping with the Stars #312 - Recessed Panel card #DOswts312 #CrackedPotStamper

 

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the sentiment was heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder
  • the color combination of Mossy Meadow and Blushing Bride
  • and of course, the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper in the Recessed Panel

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Promenade Recessed Panel card created by Dawn Thomas #CrackedPotStamper #swts312

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Beautiful Promenade and Strong & Beautiful
  • Paper: Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Mossy Meadow, Thick Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Blushing Bride, Petal Pink, Mossy Meadow, Versamark
  • Accessories: Rose Metallic Thread, Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems, Copper Emboss Powder
  • Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Beautiful Layers Thinlits, Stampin’ Trimmer
  • Adhesive: SNAIL, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots
  • Technique: Heat Embossing and Recessed Panel
Cardstock Dimensions:
  • Thick Very Vanilla: 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • Very Vanilla: (2) 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, scraps for flower & leaves
  • Mossy Meadow: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Instructions:
  1. Adhere Designer Series Paper onto folded card base.
  2. Cut both Very Vanilla and Mossy Meadow (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″) panels at the same time.
    • Near the top left side, make a mark at 3/4″ & 1-1/8″.  On the right side, make a mark at 3″ down from the top.
    • For top “half” – start at 3/4″ mark on the left edge and cut diagonally over to 3″ mark on the right edge.  Trim off 1/8″ from top edge of Very Vanilla panel.
    • For bottom “half” – start at 1-1/8″ mark on the left edge and cut diagonally down to the bottom right corner of the panels.  Trim off 1/8″ from bottom edge of Very Vanilla panel.
  3. Adhere Very Vanilla and Mossy Meadow panels together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (see TIP below), aligned at the top & bottom edges.
  4. Before adhering cut panels to card base, heat emboss & stamp card front and inside panel. Adhere to card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  5. Stamp and die cut flower and leaves. Adhere to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Write a personal note and drop in the mail to brighten someone’s day!
TIP:
Multipurpose Liquid Glue:
  • I like to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue for adhering the layers of this project because it allows me move my layers slightly if needed to make sure they are aligned properly due to it being a liquid and slower to dry than other adhesives.
Heat Emboss
  • Ink image with Versamark ink. Stamp on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Cover with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Remove excess and melt with Heat Tool.

Well Said Sympathy Card

The Well Said Bundle will help you say what you feel!

If you are finding yourself asking why it is amazing, let me share my top three reasons with you.

  1. I love the plethora of phrases
  2. I adore the framelits that allow me to die cut lots of words
  3. The font is beautiful!

Take a look, I know you are going to love the Well Said Bundle as much as I do!

Words can be hard. Let us help you say what you feel. Bundle and save! Buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.

 

Today, I want to share with you a sympathy card.

I struggle with this type of cards because they aren’t fun.

So, here is what I do…

  1. make several at one time
  2. use the same design/layout
  3. switch up the colors for masculine/feminine/neutral

That way I have them on hand when I need them and I can write a personal note and pop it in the mail.

Stampin' Up! Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written Framelits Dies. Sympathy card created by Dawn Thomas #CrackedPotStamper #StampinUp #SympathyCard #handmadeCards

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the textured background created by inking an embossing folder
  • I love the classic color combination of Balmy Blue and Very Vanilla
  • a hint of sparkle from the ribbon
  • and of course, the die cut word

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Well Said
  • Paper: Balmy Blue, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Balmy Blue
  • Accessories: Tea Room Ribbon Combo (Very Vanilla)
  • Tools: Big Shot, Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF), Stitched Label Framelits, Well Written Framelits
  • Adhesive: SNAIL Adhesive, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet
  • Technique: Embossing Folder Stamping
Cardstock Dimensions:
  • Balmy Blue: 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base) and scrap
  • Very Vanilla: (3) 5-1/4″ x 4″ and scrap
Instructions:
  1. Apply ink to TIEF, lay Very Vanilla cardstock onto inked TIEF, roll through Big Shot. Set aside to dry.
  2. Card Front: Trim inked/embossed layer to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″, adhere to Very Vanilla panel.
  3. Die cut “sympathy” and 2 small hearts from Balmy Blue. Die cut Stitched Label from Very Vanilla.
  4. Stamp sentiment to front and inside panel with Balmy Blue ink. Thread ribbon through die cut, tie with bow around card front panel.
  5. Adhere card front to folded card base. Add die cut “sympathy” and hearts.
  6. Write a personal note and drop in the mail!
TIP:
Adhering Die Cut Words
  • Adhere Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to card stock before die cutting small words or images, this will eliminate a sticky icky glue mess.
