White on White Arrange A Wreath Card

White on White Arrange A Wreath

I’m always amazed at how beautiful Monochromatic cards are! I’m sure you’ll agree when you see this White on White Arrange a Wreath Card!

My card base is Whisper White card stock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″, folded on the scoreline & burnished with the Bone Folder.

For the embossed layer, I chose Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 5.25″ x 4″, embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. By using the thick card stock, the design stands out more than if I would have used the regular thickness.

Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach all embossed layers ensures that the adhesive will get into all the grooves created by embossing and help the layer stay where you want it so that is why I used Liquid Glue to attach the embossed layer to the card base.

I had another piece of Whisper White card stock to use with the Wreath Builder Dies with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine cutting out 1 of each of the wreath designs. Next, I intertwined the 2 wreaths together until I was pleased with how they looked, turned the joined wreath over, applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue as needed, and attached over the Pinewood Planks layer!

Using Real Red Classic Ink to stamp the greeting on a scrap of Whisper White Card Stock ensures that it will match the Red Foil Bow cut with the Wreath Builder Die and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, as well as the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels, used to make “Holly Berries” on the wreaths.

The greeting was punched out with the Story Label Punch or any suitable punch. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the greeting where desired. I found that the bow was best attached with a Mini Glue Dot.

Display Both Sides of the DSP

As you know almost all Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper has 2, yes TWO, usable sides!! Have you ever had trouble deciding which side to show off? I often do so I was very pleased to find this project that allows me to display both sides of the DSP! I’m not sure what name this fold goes by but, because it has 3 folds, I’ve named it a Triple Fold Card!

Fancy Fold Birthday Card

Recently I was asked to make a very special birthday card. I was so pleased with the results so I’ve decided to share it with all of you! Yes, it took a lot of pieces, a lot of products and a lot of time to create this “one of a kind” creation!

Here are the products used:

If you want to order, click on the image or the description and you’ll be directed to my online store!


Here are the instructions and dimensions for this card:

  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 1 pc 12″ x 5-1/2″, score at 4″, 7-1/2″, 11″
    • 1 pc 11″ x 5-1/2″, score at 3″, 6″, 8-1/2″
  • Highland Heather Cardstock:
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 2-3/8″
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 2-7/8″
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 3-3/8″
    • 2 pcs 5-3/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Designer Series Paper (Lily Impressions):
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
    • 2 pcs 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″
  • Ribbon – 24″

Now here’s a look at the pages inside the card:

  • Fold each of the Whisper White Cardstock pieces on each of the score lines with each fold being the opposite direction from the last fold.
  • Use a strong adhesive like Tear ‘N Tape to attach the 1″ strip on the longer piece to the widest section of the shorter piece.
  • Attach 24″ of ribbon around the folded card being sure to have the front approximately 6″ shorter than the back. This will result in the tied bow being on the front edge.
  • Decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to display. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the DSP to the cardstock.
  • Arrange the layers in the desired locations. Use Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink to stamp the greetings. Cut the greetings out with dies and the Big Shot. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach as desired.
  • Use the Perennial Flower Punch to punch out flowers that have been stamped on Highland Heather Cardstock with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.
  • Use Snail Adhesive and Dimensionals to attach the flowers to the layers as desired.

Here’s another look at the finished project:
