It has been way too long since I’ve posted anything here! I am just now getting back into the swing of things. It was a busy, busy summer for me. It started in June with a two-week visit from my sister and brother-in-law, a three-week visit from my mom in July, and a two-week trip back home with my mom in August. Once I got back I had a club to prepare for and then it was right into getting ready for the booth I shared with a friend at the Colorado Springs Women’s Living EXPO 2016 last weekend. I think things are back to normal…whatever “normal” is.
I’ve had this card and box done for a while. I’ve been wanting to share it with you. But I wanted to create a video to go along with the box and card.
I finally had the opportunity to create a video for them today. I’ve done this project in two parts. Part 1 is the card and part 2 is the box. I hope you enjoy. There is a PDF file you can print if you like. There is a list of items you need at the end of this post and in the printable PDF.
Enjoy yourself while you watch and create. Let me know how things turn out.
Here is the link for the PDF file I promised.
Until next time…
As promised, I have a video for you this week. I got this idea from Pintrist. I just love that site. You can get ideas for EVERYTHING on there. I was surfing through it one day and got the idea for decorating a bar of soap. As always, the link to a printed tutorial is here.
Bonus Days Have Started!
Between July 7-31, with every $50 you purchase in SU! product, you will get $5 in Bonus Days coupons to spend between August 2-31!
Note: Bonus Days coupon codes will be delivered via email, so an email address is required to participate in this promotion. We cannot resend emails with coupon codes, so make sure you save the email and write down the codes in a safe place so you don’t miss out on the coupons you earn.
I am not posting a video today. I will try to get one posted for this month by the early part of next week. On Wednesday, my mother will be visiting from Ohio for three weeks, and I know that once she gets here there won’t be much stamping going on. Mom and I usually cook when she visits. We cook all of those things I grew up eating but normally don’t make. One thing I would like to make while she is here is wedding soup. I will do all of the work; she will just guide me through the process. In other words, she will supervise. 🙂
Today’s card is one I made last weekend after my up line posted a template for all of us to use. This is what I came up with. This isn’t your standard size card in that it measures 3-1/2″ x 6″. You will need a piece of 12″ x 12″ card stock to make it. I used the Vertical Greetings stamp set to make it. Here is the template I used.
Here is the card I created.
As I stated earlier, the card base measures 3-1/2″ x 6″, so you will need to cut a piece of 12″ x 12″ card stock to measure 3-1/2″ x 12″ and fold it in half. You will also need to use the envelope punch board to create an envelope for the card. This size card CAN be mailed. The smallest size the post office will accept is 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. The Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper measures 3-7/8″ x 3-1/2″, and I used the largest banner from the Banners Framelits.
Hope you like it. It’s a really easy card to make. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time…
