I created this card for the South Burlington stamp club ladies for their September meeting. I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the fantastic coordinating products in the Spooky Night suite from the Holiday catalog. Filling those potion bottles is easy-peasy with separate stamps for the liquid in each one – the outline stamp of the bottles is a single stamp. This way it is really easy to create an image that has multiple potion colors. I also wanted to use the cat image from the stamp set to show off the cat punch that is part of the bundle. The super cool thing is that the cat punch will also punch out the cat images that are on one of the sheets in the coordinating Designer Series Paper. I love it that Stampin’ Up! has started to take coordination to the next level in this way. BTW – I think the stamp club ladies had fun with this card.
I consider this a “fun fold” card because it isn’t the standard 1/2 sheet of cardstock folded in half. This one is easy to create, but it does require care when assembling so that it will fit inside a regular envelope. Here are the general steps so you can create your own card similar to this:
- Cut cardstock 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and score at 4 1/4″ to create a square card base.
- Die cute a circle (or other shape) in the same color as the card base.
- Place your card on a Stampin’ Grid paper so that the score is at the top at the 4 1/4″ line.
- Put adhesive on the bottom half of the die cut shape and attach to the center of the top of the card base. Make sure that the top of the shape does not extend beyond the 5 1/2″ line on your grid paper.
- Attach a 4″ x 4″ piece of DSP on the card base.
- Attach another diecut shape that fits inside the diecut that extends beyond the top of the folded card.
