Darryl’s wedding card

Darryl and Clarissa recently got married and this is the Wedding Card I made for them.  The words were typed then printed on Whisper White card stock to personalize this Wedding Card.
Darryl's Wedding Card
Ink:  VersaMark
Card Stock: Whisper White
Real Red
Red Glimmer Paper scrap
Silver Foil
Big Shot: Spring Flowers Embossing Folder (retired-choose one you like)
Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack #133787  (Heart Punch)
Curvy Corner Trio Punch #139683
Other:  Tombow Glue
Word Processor program and printer
Stampin’ Paper Trimmer

1.  Cut your Real Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cur your Real Red card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Run through your Big Shot with the Embossing Folder of your choice.  Take your VersaMark ink pad and drag it across the top of your embossed card front until you can see all the raised parts are covered with VersaMark ink.  These will darken and give a Tone-on-Tone look.
3.  Go to your Word Processor computer program.  I used Word.  Choose the font you like and type in the names and other information.  Print on Whisper White card stock.  Use your Paper Trimmer to cut out your words leaving about a 1/2″ border between the edge of the letters and the edge of the card stock.  Use the Curvy Corner Punch to punch the corners.  Attach to your card front with Dimensionals.
4.  Punch 4 Itty Bitty Silver Foil Hearts and 1 Red Glimmer Paper Heart.  Attach to card with Dimensionals.
5.  Emboss the Envelope Flap.  Watch This Video to learn how.
6.  Add some cash or a gift card and you are ready to attend the wedding!  Enjoy!!

Happy Wedding Card Making!

I {HEART} You Son

This is one of the cards we made at my Guy Cards Stamp Class.  I have three sons, two who are fathers and make cards for all of them plus my two son-in-laws for Father’s Day.  Using the Little Letters Thinlits you can put any word or name you want in place of the word son.  Everyone at class either cut out the word “dad” or a name instead of the word son.  The Guy Greetings stamp set is one of the few that comes in Wood Mount, Clear Mount, AND Photopolymer!
I {Heart} You Son

Stamps:  Guy Greetings  Wood #138825, Clear #138828, Photopolymer #137178
Ink:  Night of Navy
Card Stock:  Marina Mist
Night of Navy
Cherry Cobbler
Big Shot:  Little Letters Thinlits Dies #133730
Label Card Thinlits Die #133479  (I Heart you – Retiring June 2, 2015)
Magnetic Platform OR Multipurpose Platform with both tabs closed.
Punch: Itty Bitty Accents Pack #133787
Other:  Stampin’ Pierce Mat #126199 if using Photopolymer stamps
Parchment Paper or Wax Paper from your grocery store
Post-it-Notes or sticky notes.  We used a Label one that is all sticky except about 1/4″ at the end.
Tombow Glue

1.  Cut your Marina Mist card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Night of Navy background layer at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Attach to your card base.
3.  Cut your Marina Mist card front at 3-3/4″ x 5″.  This is the layer your cut your letters from.  Lay everything out on your Magnetic Platform with a bottom cutting plate.  We did use Post-it-Notes to hold the card from to the cutting plate, and also to hold the Parchment paper in place.  Now place your Thinlits in the position you want, using Post-it-Notes to hold them in place if you need to.  There is only one of each letter so if you need more than one of a letter you will have to position and cut more than one run through your Big Shot.  You can save the center parts of the letters if you want to glue them in.  Some liked the look without the letter center parts.
4.  Use the stamp of your choice to decorate around the cut out areas if desired.  I used the Guy Greetings hats stamp since one of my sons and his son both enjoy wearing hats.  There are a variety of Guy things in this stamp set to choose from.  When you are finished with the cutting out and decorating you can glue the card front to the card base.  Make sure and use only small amounts of glue especially on the super tiny parts between letters.
5. If you used the I {HEART} You Thinlit, punch a small heart from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack out of Cherry Cobbler card stock and attach with a Dimensional inside the Heart space.
6.  You now have a great guy card for whatever occasion you choose.

Happy Guy Card Making!

Sliding Valentines Video

I was watching a video (which I cannot find now)  and dreamed about making a Pirate that moved for my grandsons Valentines Day cards.  It worked!  I also decided to make a sliding Heart Valentine for my granddaughters.  Hope you enjoy making these.  If it is after Valentine’s Day you can choose any stamp you can cut out (punch out, die cut, or use scissors) to make it slide.
