Greetings my stamping friends. Thank goodness for weekends! Not that my days are much different right now and I am sure the same applies to you. I hope you are all still safe and healthy as we ride out this pandemic.
I am continuing my Double Wonder, One Sheet Wonder series with you today with the second group of four cards, using basically the same supplies and altering layouts as I used in part 1.
Starting with the 7.50″ x 6″ pieces of DSP, cut down to 4″ x 6″ and set aside the remaining 3.50″ x 6″ pieces for the next projects. Cut .75″ off the bottom of the 4″ x 6″ piece of DSP which will leave you with pieces that measure 4″ x 5.25″ and 4″ x .75″. Set aside the 4″ x .75″ pieces for the next projects. Next cut the 4″ x 5.25″ pieces into four pieces that measure 1″ x 5.25″. You should have a total of eight pieces that measure 1″ x 5.25″. You will use two pieces per card.
Cut coordinating cardstock for four card bases measuring 8.50″ x 5.50″. Score each card base at 4.25″ and 1.25″ from one end which will be the front of your card. I scored at 4.25″ and then flipped the paper over before scoring at 1.25″ so that my “mountains” and “valleys” of the folds would be on the correct sides. (TIP: Valleys are on the outside of the fold, with the mountains on the inside of the fold – this keeps your cardstock from cracking when you fold it.)
The 1.25″ scored piece will fold back towards the spine of the card so that a portion of the inside of the card is exposed. (I adhered my 1.25″ flaps for the card front to keep them in place. This step is optional.) I then attached a piece of DSP in the folded flap area as well as on the inside of the card at the right side.
Once all the pieces are assembled and embellishments have been added, your cards will look something like this:
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of these cards with the nice hyperlinks that will allow you to quickly add these products to your shopping cart.Product List
As I mentioned earlier in my post, these are basically the same products I used in yesterday’s cards, except I changed the ribbon and added pearls.
If you have any questions regarding any of the design elements of these cards, please ask.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
