Hi everyone! Two clean and simple cards to share today and I like them! YAY! I made a regular A2 size card with the NEW Sweet Bay Collage die, using it on a fold on the inside, as a pop up!
So pretty with this popular pattern paper from Hobby Lobby! For the two bluegreen cuts, I die cut, then trimmed at the top and the bottom of the stem, then added/adhered the two leaves that completely cut out. So pretty with the white contrast!
But then you have to decorate the front! haha I just used the Rectangle Basics die set and die cut rectangles to fit the sentiment from poppystamps Friendship and Kindness clear stamp set. I heat embossed in black detail powder on the bluegreen cardstock from TE.
I should’ve turned it toward the light better to catch the shine of the embossing powder!
My second card, I was inspired by a friend who sent me a card in the new mini slim card size 3 ½ x 6! The new Verdant Leaf Collage is the perfect size for it! I have another idea to try with this die but I wanted to go ahead and post because otherwise I just get too many pictures and the post gets too long!
The green turned out kind of blah. ugh. eek! It’s Peeled Paint and Rustic Wilderness Oxides, then water and gold spatters.
Sentiments from the Wild Rose Stem stamp set and Friendship Floral Heart stamp set. I black heat embossed the Thank You on vellum.
Before I go, I want to tell you the measurements for the pop up inside piece on the first card.
- For the first card cut your 8 ½ x 11 piece of white cardstock in half, exactly 5 ½ inches. Leave one but cut the other one down to 8 inches, so it’s 5 ½ x 8.
- Die cut the Sweet Bay Collage die centered in the 5 ½ x 8 piece, then score that piece at 4 inches… that will be your mountain fold.
- Then I scored 1 ⅜ inches from both sides of that center score line and those will be your valley folds.
- Then all that’s left is to finish everything and glue the longer sides to the inside of your regular A2 size card base with a side fold.
Holler if you have any questions!
