Simple Saturday Friend Card & WOW! Video

Create a simple card with Stampin Up Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper - Mary Fish StampinUp Card Idea

I had an “aha” moment when I discovered I could use the envelope liner die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies to cover the outside flap of the note card sized envelope for today’s friend card.  The die is designed to create an interior liner for Stampin’ Up! medium envelopes.  Love that!  However, I use a lot of the Whisper White and Very Vanilla Note Cards and am thrilled that I can dress up the note card envelope flaps (outside), too!  

In today’s video tutorial, I highlight the Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies and demonstrate how to use the liner die on note card envelope flaps.  Please note that the official color of the Faceted Dots is Blackberry Bliss.  However, it works equally well with Fresh Fig.  The Stampin’ Up! note card sets include envelopes, not liners as I inadvertently stated in the video!

The patterns of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper are stunning.  Here’s a card idea I created previously with the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper along with another WOW! video.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

Get a fast start on your card making using the Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  The 5 x 3 1/2 note cards are cut, scored and ready for your decorative touches.  Offered in Very Vanilla, too!

Cut a 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 rectangle using the Stampin’ Trimmer and a pattern from Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  Cut across the width into thirds measuring 1 1/2 x 2 1/2.

Keeping in order the original pattern, adhere each third using Stampin’ Dimensionals to a Whisper White Note Card (5 x 3 1/2).

Stamp sentiment from Beautiful Promenade Photopolymer Stamp Set using Fresh Fig ink on an approximate 3 x 1/2 piece of Whisper White card stock.  

Flip over the Tailored Tag Punch and insert the right end of the sentiment into the punch, lining up the point.  Crop to create a flagged end.

For a touch of bling and personality, add a Petal Pink Rhinestone (self-adhesive) to the left of the sentiment.  Adhere sentiment to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Cut a 5 1/4 x 2 piece of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Magnetic Platform and the envelope liner die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies.  Adhere using Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to outside of the note card envelope flap.  I used the envelope liner die for the top (floral) envelope above.  For the bottom envelope (marble flap), I used Paper Snips and carefully snipped the the pattern around the original flap.

From below, the liner is slightly different from the actual note card envelope . . . however, it looks gorgeous sealed and I won’t tell if you don’t!
