Varied Vases Gate Fold Card

Create a simple thank you card using Varied Vases Stamp Set - Mary Fish ideas

Today’s gate fold card is highlighted by the Varied Vases Photopolymer Stamp Set and Vases Builder Punch.  The set and punch were inspired by ME as recognition for reaching $1 million in sales last year.  They will be available individually and as a 10% off bundle starting June 1 when the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog begins.  Here’s a link to my video with details and oodles of tips on using these products.


Create a gate fold card base using Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.  Cut card stock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Score at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8.

    Morning Mary, I have just received the Varied Vases bundle and am very excited to start creating. I was wondering when stamping the vases and flowers , do you like to stamp the outline image of the vase/flower first then the solid image or the other way around. I don’t have the Stamparatise. Many Thanks Jenny NZ
