My name is Natalie and I love anything to do with card/paper. I have been a papercrafter for many years now and I never get bored playing with all the wonderful products available. I've been married to my wonderful husband Nathan for 35years now and we are still very much in love with each other as the first day we met each other. We have 3 wonderful children and 5 gorgeous grandchildren so we have lots to be thankful for. Since joining Stampin' Up! in 2018 I've grown so much in confidence with myself and I even tackle technology, which for me is a huge step to have taken, but I'm getting there slowly.

Posted for You

Good morning everyone, and welcome to another crafty Tuesday.
Today I wanted to show you all the lovely Posted For You bundle. Now this is a bundle that comes with a great rectangular postage stamp punch and stamp set and it's absolutely divine.
I've made a very quick and simple card, but I think it turned out really lovely, hope you all agree. So let' get making.......

Materials needed:

Just Jade cardstock
1pc - 10.5cm x A4 length scored in half longside card base
1pc - 10.1cm x 13cm for inside of card
1pc - approx 4.5cm x 7cm for punching out the stamp

Whisper white thick cardstock
1pc - 10.1cm x 14.4cm front of card layer
1pc approx 7cm x 10cm for punching 2 x stamps
1pc - 1.7cm x 5.6cm for sentiment

Flowers for every Season dsp
1pc - 9.7cm x 14cm front of card layer

Vellum cardstock
1pc - 9.7cm x 14cm front of card layer 

Forever greenery trim combo
1pc approx 14cm for wrapping round dsp and vellum layer

1. Score and burnish your card base.

2. Glue your Just jade piece of card in to the inside of your card leaving an even border around the base and two sides (You will notice that it's smaller, this is because you now need to score in from the centre fold about 1.5cm. This is so you can run some glue down this section when your'e ready and glue it shut, this enables your card to stand up better without collapsing).

3.  Glue your whisper white layer on to the front of your card.

4. Punch out two stamp appertures on your vellum piece one on the bottom right and one on the top left. ( place the punch flush with the side of the vellum and push it in as far as it goes punch turn your vellum round NOT OVER and then you'll be in the opposite corner punch the second stamp apperture out).

5. In between the two stamp appertures place 2 glue dots on reverse and glue to the front of your dsp piece. In two opposite corners place a tiny piece of wet glue to adhere the vellum to the dsp further, when you've finished your card you can place some enamel dots over where the glue is to hide it (be very sparingly with the glue as it spreads).

6. Place some stampin'seal on the reverse of your dsp where you trim is going to wrap round and glue your trim round from the front side.

7. Glue your dsp/vellum piece on to the front of your card.

8. After having punched out 2 whisper white stamps, and stamping your postage mark in one corner of one of them, place mini dimensionals in all 4 corners and glue them both on to the front of your card. Glue your gold fern element in to place.

9. Punch out your Just jade stamp and then emboss it through your machine with the embossing folder. This gets glued flat on to the white stamps. 

10. Stamp your sentiment on to your card piece and then glue this on to your card using mini dimensionals. Now you can add some enamel dots to cover up the glue under the vellum. 

Hope you enjoyed todays project and you give it a go. Take care till next time.
