Stampin’ Up On the Horizon bundle
Hello Everyone – have you ordered the Stampin’ Up On the Horizon bundle yet?
I am an admin in a World Card Making Group on Facebook and this month our challenge is to make a masculine card. I knew I could use the New Horizons suite of products for my card that I have to post today. That means you get an extra idea for me today.
I love the New Horizons pattern paper as it makes designing your card so easy. I found a great pattern to use and this is what I designed.
This suite was not one that caught my eye when I first looked at the catalog. Then during OnStage in November it was a feature of one of the presenters and I was hooked! This suite has some gorgeous pattern paper.
When I went to design my card I was really stumped. I decided to check out my challenge blogs to see what I could find. I found a great sketch challenge to use at Paper Craft Crew Challenges.
I took some liberty with the sketch square and circle elements. Check out how I addressed these elements.
I thought the grass stamp would be perfect for using on the inside of the card and envelope. I love these scribble grasses as an image on your card. They are perfect for the theme of this suite.
Card Base: Mossy Meadow 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded in the middle
New Horizons pattern paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ any pattern will work with this layout
Evening Evergreen: 3 3/4″ x 5 ” – 3/4″x 5 1/4″ – strip for sentiment
Soft Succulent: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ – scrap for stamping and die cutting
White: 4″ x 5 1/4″ – scraps for stamping and die cutting – strip for sentiment
Here is how you can make the Stampin’ Up On the Horizon bundle card
- fold and burnish the card base
- glue the New Horizons pattern paper to the Soft Succulent panel
- attach the panel from above to the White panel
- add the panel from above to the card base
- emboss the 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ strip of Evening Evergreen using the Tasteful Textile embossing folder
- with Tear & Tape, add the embossed strip to the card front about 1/4″ from the left edge of the pattern paper
- stamp the wood stamp onto Soft Succulent card stock using Soft Succulent ink
- cut out the stamped image using the coordinating die
- cut out the fence from White using the die
- stamp the wood stamp onto the fence using a second generation stamping with Crumb Cake
- add the wood die cut to the card base using dimensionals – see photo above
- use liquid glue to add to the picket at each end of the fence – attach the right end of the fence to the wood die cut – bow the fence and glue the left end of the fence to the wood die (you need to leave a little bit of the bow in the fence)
- once the end pickets of the fence are stuck down well, push down of the bow to give the fence a weathered look – see photo above
- stamp the sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink onto the White strip
- angle cut the right side of the sentiment
- adhere the white strip to the Evening Evergreen strip
- mimic the angle cut of the White strip on the Evening Evergreen strip
