Stampin’ Up! Convention Bound

Filed under: Projects — July 15, 2014 @ 4:27 pm

I’m heading to #InspireCreateShare2014 to be inspired.  I have created samples for one of the display boards at Convention which I will share this week while I am gone.  I choose the theme “Christmas in July” for my board and the color scheme Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Real Red.  More from the Stampin’ Up! Convention when I return!  Remember, you can still order online while I am gone (hostess code FDWY6AVH), and stamp class is Tuesday the 22nd after I get back.

Here’s a fun pop-up technique I discovered with the Little Layers Framelits.  I made this card from a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ panel and then of course had to make my own odd sized envelope with the envelope punch board.   Tutorial below for the technique.

1.  For the next card I used a  5-1/2 x 8″  piece of cardstock so it would fit in a regular envelope.  Do not fold first! (Or just use a 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 piece and trim later).

2.  Draw a light pencil line where you want your fold – here 3-1/2″ so you have room for the letters.

3.  Place your letters just below the line so the bottoms will not be cut.  The magnetic platform gets a bit wonky with the little framelits so I added a post it note to keep them straight.

4.  Important – Place the bottoms of the cutting pads on your pencil lines when you run through the Big Shot so the bottoms of the letters stay attached to the card.

5.  Then place your card into the paper trimmer and score on the pencil line with your bone folder, beside and in between the letter.

6.  Erase your pencil line, fold, trim if needed and finish off the card.

Here is the finished card.  And another card with inlaid letters.
