Your a gem birthday card, Pootles papercraft design team project week 2


Hello everyone

So we are on week 2 of pootles papercraft design team, and this week I’ve made a card using the stampin up just keep swimming. This stamp set is a 2 step stamp set,  I’ve used the beautiful gem image out that set, it’s lush!

So to make this Card I cut a piece of whisper white Cardstock down to

8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″

I scored on the 8 1/2″ side at 4 1/4″ and I folded the card in half and that makes a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card.

Next i cut a piece of melon mango Cardstock to 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8 ” and also some patterned paper from the pop of pink designer series paper to which I cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″

Add some double sided tape to the back of the patterned paper and stick that on to the melon mango Cardstock, add some double sided tape to the back of the melon mango Card and wrap some whisper white ribbon over the patterned paper and stick the ribbon to the back of the coloured card, then attach the whole piece to the whisper white card.

For the gems image you need to cut

3 x 1″ x 1″ whisper white Cardstock and

3 x 1 1/8″ x 1 1/8″ melon mango Cardstock

Next i did some two step stamping with the gem stamps, first I inked up the Base stamp with melon mango ink and stamped it on to some scrap card first and then stamped it on to the 1″ square whisper white Cardstock, I got the out line gem ink that with melon mango and stamped that straight on top of the Base we just done. Repeat that with the other 2 little squares.

Distress all the 3 pieces of 1″ square with melon mango ink. Add double sided tape to the back and attach to the coloured 1 1/8″ square cards. Add dimentionals to the back and stick on to you card,

For the sentiment I stamped out your a gem with melon mango on to some whisper white Cardstock that measures 2″ x 1″ distress the edge and stick to some melon mango Cardstock that measures 2 1/8″ x 1 1/8″  add dimentionals and add to card.

Finally make a bow out of the whisper white ribbon, attach to card and add a little flat back pearl.

I love how this Card turned out.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s design team project.
