Hello stampers. I have a fun card for you today that is simply called a Double Point Card. I am using all new supplies from the new catalog to get you all excited for what is coming. That might be a bad idea since it takes your focus off of our Occasions catalog and all the amazing things in our current annual catalog, but we always like sneak peeks don’t we? If your catalog is anything like mine, it is getting a little worn around the edges! I used the Perennial Essence suite for this card. The product that most captured my heart in this suite is definitely the Perennial Essence paper, it is simply stunning!!
Here you can see what I used to make this card. The picture doesn’t show you the beautiful paper or the coordinating vellum but that will come later! It is really nice that there are two coordinating punches with this stamp set, the new perennial flower punch and our current leaf punch.
I love the soft colours of this card. The muted tones of the patterned paper are well suited to combining with a vellum flower. Let’s take a look at how I made the points out of the Perennial Essence paper.
The points are just a 3″ by 4″ piece of patterned paper, scored at 1″ along the long side. You then fold the corners down to meet just above the score line. The 1″ by 4″ piece then gets adhered under the 4″ by 5 1/4″ piece of whisper white cardstock (see the video).
These new stitched nested labels are a dream to work with. They pop out of the framelits with ease, absolutely no poking necessary. There are 9 dies in the set.
Here you can see a closeup of the stitched nested labels. Do you see how pretty the floral essence centers are? (yes, I know I am spelling that word the American way, but if people want to google for them it won’t show up if I spell it the Canadian way)
There are lots of little surprises in this card. You get to lift the stitched nested labels to see this sentiment and then you get to open the actual card to find another one!! Someone will definitely be feeling the love when they get this card from you.
The sentiment here is from the March Paper Pumpkin that featured the succulents. That kit is totally sold out. Don’t you hate it when you miss out on a fabulous Paper Pumpkin? There is a super easy way to have that not happen. Subscribe and get a monthly delight in the mail. Instant gratification! Just like ordering takeout so that you don’t have to cook and clean up. Next month’s Paper Pumpkin is a very special vintage one designed by Shelli Gardner the cofounder of Stampin’Up! Click here if you are interested.
I hope you enjoyed this fun card today. I hope to get the new catalogs in some time in May. Don’t forget to check out the clearance rack for some fabulous deals. Once again, the list of products at the end of my post will be small since most of the products are not yet available. I have to say that one of the things I really enjoy about being a demonstrator is getting my hands on brand new products before anyone else!! At the end of this post is a video showing you how I put the card together. It cuts off at the end because I ran out of space on my phone. There was no way I was going to redo the whole thing and we didn’t miss much at the end.
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day.
