For those of you who follow me on my Stampin' Pretty Facebook Page, I'm back from Los Angeles after one of the best family holidays ever! I hope you enjoyed my week of Stampin' with the Stars (there's one more "star" tomorrow–love HIS project), showcasing the work of my Stampin' Pretty Pals Community (while "the cat" was away on a much needed vacation).
Today's project was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO326). I chose "square" for my 5 x 5 card! What will you choose?
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- SNEAK PEEK! I used both the Stampin' Up! Perfect Pennants stamp set and new coordinating Banners Framelits Dies to create the sentiment pennant! Both are available in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog starting Jan. 3!
- SNEAK PEEK! You are also getting a chance to witness an early look at very hip pattern from the the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (also Occasions Catalog).
- SNEAK PEEK! A button from Basic Metal Buttons (Occasions Catalog) brings the star to life. A cross stitch of Whisper White Baker's Twine gives it polish!
- MEASUREMENTS: The card base is 5" square. The two layers on top of the base are sized down 1/4" each (4 3/4" and 4 1/2" square). The patterned paper measures 4 1/2" x 3 1/2". The Real Red Cardstock measures 4 1/2" x a smidge over 1" and is tucked under the patterned piece. The Coastal Cabana Cardstock measures 4 1/4" x 1 3/4".
- I used Crumb Cake Cardstock and the Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board to create the perfectly sized envelope for the 5 x 5 card. Need a refresher on how to create a custom envelope liner using minimal patterned paper? Here's my video tutorial! See my complete Tutorial Library.
