Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Wedding Wishes

Summer is a popular time for weddings, especially in a northern state like Montana.  Weddings are great occasions to send a handmade card as well, for that special couple!  In a recent class, we made the following card featuring the Floral  Phrases and Detailed Floral Framelits.

The base of this card (the Emerald Envy card stock)  was cut a little differently than normal. It was  cut at 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" and then scored at 5-1/8".  The larger of the two Detailed Floral Framelits and the edge framelit are used to cut the shorter side of the green cardstock. If you don't have the die brush (#143603) to help remove all the little "hanging chads" from the framelits, you need it!

A second piece of Very Vanilla cardstock is adhered to the inside back of the Emerald Envy card stock. This piece is 4-7/8" x 8" and scored at 2" and 6".   I specifically chose a nontraditional color scheme for some visual interest and to use the Moroccan Designer Series Paper. Of course, it wouldn't be a wedding card without some rhinestone bling!  My tag on the front was cut using the Tags and Labels framelits... don't forget about that handy set!

This card was fun to make, a little out of the box and a nice challenge. Hope you like it!  Contact me if you're interested in this card, the supplies to make it or any other great product at Stampin'Up!
Happy Stampin!
