Dandy Laser-Cut Paper from Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' PrettySTAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL: 

Begin with a 4 x 5 1/2 card base of Basic White card stock. IMPORTANT: Please note the slightly smaller-sized card base (4″ wide instead of 4 1/4″) to work with the proportions of the Dandy Laser-Cut rectangle.

Adhere a 3 1/2 x 5 piece of Basic Black card stock and a 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 piece of Magenta Madness card stock together and to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.

LOVE THIS!  You can see a video from Tammy Beard, a member of my Pals Stamping Community, showing an inexpensive and easy way to adhere intricate designs. 

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment (Oval Occasions Stamp Set) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Basic White card stock. 

Crop the sentiment and a piece of Magenta Madness card stock with the coordinating Double Oval Punch. 

Adhere together and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Embellish with Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots.

PERFECT POLISH!  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere a 2 1/4 x 5 3/4 piece of coordinating Magenta Madness Designer Series Paper to the outside flap of a Basic White Medium Envelope. Trim to size with Paper Snips.  You can see my video demonstration with tips on adding designer paper to an envelope flap here.

OH, SO PRETTY!  Like the envelope flap on today’s project, the card below was created using the 6×6 Designer Series Paper that is part of the Sale-a-Bration Starter Kit Promotion (see below)!

    I have to tell you that while I never comment, your emails are the very first thing I check each morning when picking up my phone for the first time. I’m a hobbyist, but I always find such inspiration through your work! And also the little tips and products! Sometimes (often times) the catalog is HUGE and I miss amazing products like the double oval punch that would make card making so much faster for me (a real need in my life). Our styles are so similar and your work challenges me without intimidating me. Thank you for sharing such great directions, and not keeping it all to yourself. Blessings to you in your business!!
