Duplicate card with cutout overlay.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I will give you directions for this crazy card.

  • For the card base you will need Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper cut to 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″. On the 8 1/2″ side score at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″. Cut out semi circles for the accent portion with the Layering Circle Dies.
  • For the inner card you will need a piece of Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock cut to 5 1/4″ X 8″. On the 8″ side score at 4″.
  • Out of a scrap of the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper cut out a circle from the Layering Circle Dies. Stamp the stemmed leaf from Beautiful Autumn Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.
  • The belly band is cut from a Window Sheet at 1 1/2″ X 9″. Emboss with Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. Attach ends together with Mini Glue Dots.
  • For the accent take a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet and peel both sides. On one side attach Very Vanilla Card Stock and on the other a coordinating card stock (in this case I used Cajun Craze). Die cut from the Celebration Labels Dies. Tip: You might need to run through twice to get it completely cut. Attach with Mini Glue Dots to belly band.

Going to the beach before fall.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I have two cards to teach you. Two!

The first card is just like going to the beach but without the sand in places you don’t want to think about and no frizzy hair. The second card is all about the Designer Series Paper and how it can be a border and a ribbon. So let’s begin at the beach.

For this card you will need a piece of Thick Whisper White Card Stock cut for the base as well as the Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set. Then you will need from outer to inner a mat of Night of Navy, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, and Watercolor Paper. You will also need the Water Painters along with Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, and Mossy Meadow Ink. Make sure to put water in the painter. Wash the paper to create the background and wait until dry to stamp your palm trees. Attach all with Stampin’ Seal except the Watercolor Paper. For the last layer I used Dimensionals.

For the other card for Fall I used the Gilded Autumn Suite. I started with a Thick Very Vanilla Card Base and added Cajun Craze along with the Gilded Autumn Suite. For all measurements and full instructions please check out my video at https://youtu.be/VDS1op6ku1c. (Hint, this is the card you want to pay attention to as it is the create with me project through this weekend.)

Happy Crafting!
