Hey friends!
I've been a demonstrator with Stampin'Up! since 2011. I'm located in Bozeman, Montana, but have customers all over the country. I have a very fun and active downline called "Big Sky Stampers" and we get together in person and online to share what we love. My blog posts feature what I'm up to recently and I try to share new product information, tips and tricks and creative inspiration. You can shop from this site or find out more information about our products and becoming a demonstrator! Thanks for stopping by!

Going sideways...

I had a couple of goals in mind with this card. I really wanted to use the Circle Card Thinlit, which has been in the catalog for 2-3 years now and I have neglected for at least a year.   My dilemma was I also wanted to use the World Traveler Textured Impression Embossing folder.
The problem? The framelit is designed for a vertical oriented card and the embossing folder is deigned for a horizontal oriented card. What's a stamper to do?  I chose to use the Framelit sideways. In other words, I still used the framelit in the Big Shot as always, but cut my paper in half the long way (vertically at 11 x 4.25") and then put it in sideways through the framelit. I scored the end which doesn't have the circle flip at 3.75" from the outer edge and then embossed that side of the card with the embossing folder. I hope you are completely confused but I think you can see what I mean when you see a picture!

Here it is folded out...

That's it for the basic "how-to" of the card. I used the wonderful free SAB stamp set "The Sky is the Limit" which is only available with any $50 purchase until February 15th! Don't miss out if you are a plane buff or someone you know is!  This was fun to make and I hope to remember my design idea and put it to use again soon!

Have a great Monday!
