About Me

My photo
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.

Lovely labels Pick a punch

1. Score and burnish your card base. The next step you can do 2 ways  -   you can glue your layer piece of card on the front before cutting your apperture square out. Or you can cut the base first, glue the front square on, and then cut the apperture from the reverse side of apperture. You just need to make sure that the border is 1" all round for the frame that's left. I like to use a craft knife and rule for this but you can use your trimmer.
2. Ink and stamp your 2 x large triangles for the front of your card and then die cut them out. These need to be glued flush with the top layer on the front of your card, in opposite corners (be carful where you place your glue as you don't want it to show the otherside). The bottom corner can have the 2nd largest triangle in Misty moonlight glued on top (this along with the 2 x ( smaller size) for the inside of card is cut out of the piece cut from the apperture).
3. Die cut 5 x bunting triangles form our dsp, you can do this by cutting one up the right way and the next upside down the next right way up and so on ( be aware that if using writing some of them will read upside down, therefore these ones will be turned over and the other side used).
4. Having die cut all of your whisper white bunting strips and tiny triangle ( for the front), you  can glue the tiny one in place, and your bunting pieces overlapping them to the back of your white bunting strips,  this will make a piece long enough for the front of your card ( some of the white bunting strips will need to be cut off try and have it so you cut some from each end ).
5. Now run some glue along the top of the white bunting strips and glue your twine to it, then tie a bow and glueit on top in the middle. This bunting piece can now be glued to the front of your card.
6. Stamp your sentiment and then punch one end of it. This can be glued to the front of your card using stampin'dimensionals.
7. For the inside of the card  cut the triangle element, and then using a misty moonlight stampin' marker, stamp one word at a time, cleaning between each word  (this lets you have a different looking sentiment instead of a one liner sentiment), on to the whisper white piece and then glue it in to the inside of card. 
8. Die cut your 2 triangles from inner apperture waste piece, ink and stamp 2 the same size on to whisper white card, and then place the die back onto the stamped image (cutting side up as it lays flatter) and draw round the inside triangle, cut out with scissors, this gives you a nice even , smaller triangle, which can be glued on top of the larger one.
9. Place some enamel dots on to the front of the card and that's your card finished.
