A Card Club Offering

A quick post today; here's one of the cards from our March Card Club:
Although a little hard to see (should NOT have photographed my Crushed Curry background on my maple table!), this is a little different card.  Using a standard Stampin' UP notecard-sized Whisper White base, I attached it to a standard-card-sized piece of Crushed Curry (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"), run through the Big Shot with the "vintage" Sophisticated Stripes embossing folder.  This makes the smaller Note Card fit into a standard sized envelope. 

The Make-a-Wish stamp (from Perfect Pennants) was inked in Strawberry Slush and stamped on Whisper White; then cut out using one of the framelits from the Banners Framelits Dies.  The same stamp was re-inked in Crushed Curry; just the "a" was stamped on a scrap of card stock, and punched using the 1/2" circle punch.   A piece of Designer Series Paper from the Kaleidoscope DSP was also cut using a larger banner.  And during the same "run through the Big Shot" a tiny banner (from the Bitty Banners Framelits) was cut using Bermuda Bay cardstock.  This all gets layered to create the main image, which is topped off with a wrap and bow of Linen Thread.

Two banners (also from Perfect Pennants) are stamped in Bermuda Bay and Strawberry Slush, and snipped to size using Paper Snips (love these!).  They're popped up on Dimensionals.

And I love the border at the bottom--triangles were stamped using Geometrical, and punched with the Triangle Punch, then pieced together to make the border.  One of the Crushed Curry triangles was cut in half--6 triangles (3 Crushed Curry and 3 Bermuda Bay) fit perfectly!

Wanna make one of your own?  I'm happy to ship the monthly Card Club offerings to you--all card stock will be cut to size, ready for stamping (your stamps) and putting together; I include detailed photos.  You get 4 cards and envelopes for just $14.00 (this includes postage).  Contact me and your set will be shipped the next business day.  Stamps can be ordered here.

And let's get creating!
