If you have never made a card before, you will love these One Hour Card Class workshops! Because we are making 5 cards in this class, it may take longer than one hour. However, we will complete all the cards, inside and out, with a matching envelope – ready for the mail! I host card classes every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. You pick the day and the time that suits you. Message or email me for more info. I hope you will consider joining me as we learn how to get the very best from the products that we buy. You can order SU! products online and have them shipped directly to your door. Simply click on the “Shop Now” button in my banner (or I can order for you). I would be most happy to be your Canadian demonstrator.
Please refer to my Card A for the One Sheet Wonder pattern and cutting instructions following Rebecca’s pattern. For some reason, I can’t get to Rebecca’s page. Here are her cards on Pinterest – maybe you will have better luck! Now on to Card D or the 4th card of 5. Card B is HERE. Card C is HERE.
One Sheet Wonder Card D – Season of Joy:
Prepare card by cutting Very Vanilla cardstock at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”. Fold in half for a side fold card – a bone folder gives you a crisp fold. Stamp and sign the back. Set aside.
Remember the writing tablet? Perfect for the inside of cards. Fold a piece in half.
Stamp a phrase and over stamp with an image if desired. Adhere to inside of the card. Set aside.
The DSP piece is 4” wide by 3” long. Cut Old Olive cardstock at 4” by 2-1/4” and run through the Woodgrain embossing folder - it is suggested that the card stock be lightly spritzed with water on both sides before putting it in the folder to relax the paper fibers so that they stretch and not break while being embossed. Tape to the DSP panel to the Old Olive panel to make a length of 4” x 5-1/4” from the two pieces. Set aside.
Cut a strip of white cardstock 4-1/2” long by 3/8” wide. Ink the strip with Versamark, leaving about ½” at one end un-inked. By doing it this way, you have something to hold on to while heat embossing. Heat emboss with Copper embossing powder. Adhere to cover the join of the DSP/Olive panel. Trim. Adhere panel to the card front. Set aside.
Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 1-1/4” X 3-1/4”; cut Old Olive cardstock 1-1/4” x 7”; Cherry Cobbler cardstock at 1-1/2” square and White cardstock at 1-1/4” x 2-1/4”. Die cut two small and one medium pine branches from Old Olive, one berries from Cherry Cobbler, two pine cone fronts from Very Vanilla cardstock and a large bow from white cardstock. Sandwich is: Magnetic platform – cutting pad - cardstock – wax paper - die with cutting blade down – cutting pad.
Use the white gel pen to color the berries. I could not get my gel pen to write so I found my old Versamark marker and of course, it was dry!
So, I rubbed the berries with the embossing buddy then I dipped my marker in Versamark refill and applied the ink that way – I just squirted a bit on my ink pad.
Heat emboss with white embossing powder. You may need to repeat if you don’t get a good coverage. Set aside.
Lightly pencil mark about 1” from the top of the DSP.
Adhere branches at that mark. Cut copper cord at 20”. Wrap around two fingers twice then around 3 fingers a couple of times. Pinch together and tape or glue dot at the top of the branches. Trim off any tails if necessary.
Add berries and pine cones. Set aside.
Ink half of the bow with Versamark. Heat emboss with Copper embossing powder - quit embossing the minute it is melted to avoid burning. Repeat for the other half. I did this twice to get a thick covering of EP.
Adhere bow to the card front above the branches in a pleasing manner. Add a pearl to the center of the bow. Set aside.
Cut Crumb Cake cardstock 2” by 4”. Rub the front with the embossing buddy. Heat emboss the phrase in the center with Copper embossing powder. Stamp the frame in Cherry Cobbler ink. Cut out the frame.
Apply mounts to the phrase. Adhere in a pleasing manner to the card front.
Make an envelope using the envelope punch board. Decorate with stamp images.
