Stampin' Up! Nature's Beauty Card


Hello & Welcome!  Are you ready for another week of card making!?  I am!  As usual, I'm starting this week off with a masculine card for those great guys in your life.  This one was inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge 425.

Night of Navy Card Base ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Dandy Garden DSP ~ 5-3/8" x 4-1/8"
Night of Navy Cardstock ~ 5-1/8" x 2-1/4" and a scrap
Basic White Cardstock ~ scraps for images on the front of the card and 4" x 5-/14" (inside)

  1. Stamp the critters from Nature's Beauty on Basic White CS using Early Espresso Ink. 
  2. Stamp the Many Messages stamp on Basic White CS, also with Early Espresso Ink.
  3. Cut three rectangles out of the strip of Night of Navy CS using the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. 
  4. Cut out the Many Messages with the coordinating die. Choose the sentiment you want to use and put the rest away.  (I keep my unused messages in two of these storage containers from Amazon, for use later.)  
  5. Use the Messages Die to cut out a Night of Navy background for the sentiment you chose to keep.
  6. Fussy cut around the critters with Paper Snips, or other scissors for detail cutting. 
  7. Wrap Linen Thread around the bottom of the DSP and tie in a not.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the DSP to the front of the card. 
  8. Apply your adhesive of choice to the Night of Navy frame, skipping the bottom middle section.  Also, try to leave enough room on the end sections to tuck the bunny and fox under. 
  9. For each of the animals, add a couple of Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of their head, and a bit of Liquid Glue behind their feet.  Tuck them under the frame as shown, so that their head sticks up a bit, but the bottoms of each image is stuck down close to the cardstock. 
  10. Glue the Night of Navy diecut a little offset behind the sentiment.  Then attach them over the twine using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, stamp the bare trees to the bottom corner of the 4" Basic White CS.  Attach the CS to the inside of the card.
