It was another fun video yesterday using the In the Country stamp set offered in the sale-a-bration catalog. We all love getting things for free and when you make a qualifying purchase from my online store, you too can get free items. Now that you have the stamp set, you must use those sale-a-bration products.
Yesterday, I started out by creating the card at the bottom of the photo. It is a simple Saturday card. All I did was ink up the stamp with Memento ink and stamped in the center of my basic white layer. Added a sentiment, and the card is complete. The mat layer on this card is Evening Evergreen card stock. I left the inside of the card blank.
To step this card up for stepped-up Sunday, I used the same size card base (measurements at the end of the post), a layer of Evening Evergreen and the basic white layer for the image. What I did differently is die cut a circle out of the center of the image for a focal point. I used the Layering Circle dies. First I die cut the larger of the circles using Evening Evergreen card stock. Next, I die cut the center of the image with the next smaller circle. Once I had my circles, I colored the image in the circle with various Stampin’ blends. That circle brings life to the stamp. Adhere the colored circle to the Evening Evergreen circle and pop it up on the front of the card.
You just want to make sure that you have the image set to match the image on the front of the card.
The measurements for both cards are as follows:
Basic white card stock for the base of both cards is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. The mat layer is Evening Evergreen which measures 5 1/4 x 4. The image is stamped on basic white which measures 5 1/8 x 3 7/8. These measurements are for both cards. As I said, the only difference is that I cut the circles out of the stepped-up card.
