Handmade Cards, Spring, Summer, Technique, Thanks

Better 1 or Better 2… Nope It’s Not an Eye Exam!

I earned the Berry Blessing Stamp Set and Berry Delightful Designer Series paper with my $100 order during Sale-a-Bration.

Who wouldn’t love this fun set!

Plus it coordinates with the Sweet Stawberry bundle found in the Mini Catalog.

Double the Fun!

The only problem is… Oh and don’t let that shadow effect on the sentiment of the berry background card sway you- it was a happy accident when I dropped my block! Talk about luck.

Here are the measurements for the card that will give you the look on the left. One thing I forgot to mention was that I ran out of the picnick plaid because I made so many of these cards that when I went to design my card class we had to flip the paper pattern. Thank goodness for the product coordination of Stampin’ Up!

  • Real Red Cardstock base 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 1/4 and 5 1/2
  • Berry Delightful DSP 4 x 5 1/4, 4 x 1 1/2 and 4 x 2
  • Basic White Card Stock 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 3 3/4

Just a few tips when you make the card- 1. Use your bone folder to burnish those scores or the card won’t lay down right. 2. Tear and tape the smaller top section AFTER adhering the DSP even if you burnished well, you will be happy you did.

The inside.

Here is a fun technique to modify your stamps… cellophane tape (Scotch tape if you only know it by the brand name). Use a piece to block of the words you DON’T want to stamp. Ink the sentiment and remove the tape and stamp your card.
