Country Club Father’s Day Note Card & Envelope

Today’s Whisper White Note Card and Envelope were adorned for Father’s Day using the new Country Club Suite. It’s easy to line the envelope. Just trace around the open envelope for the shape, then cut it out using Paper Snips. Stick it in the envelope, far enough so the envelope adhesive still shows, and glue it in place.

Wrapped in Plaid Faceted Box for Inking Royalty Christmas 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inking Royalty Christmas 2020 Blog Hop! Today I’m sharing a faceted treat box. I love this little box, and I realized I hadn’t made one in a long time. I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper. The pearls were colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers in Dark Cherry Cobbler, Dark Night of Navy, and Dark Shaded Spruce.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer and Simply Scored Tool:

  • Cherry Cobbler card stock (CS) cut to 7-7/8″ x 11-1/4″
  • scored the Cherry Cobbler CS along the short side at 2-1/2″, 4-5/8″, and 7-1/8″
  • rotated the Cherry Cobbler CS 90 degrees so the skinny section is at the top, then scored only down to the second score line (cross one score line and stop at the second) at 2-1/2″, 5″, 7-1/2″, and 10″
  • rotated the Cherry Cobbler CS 180 degrees, then scored only down to the first score line at 2-1/2″, 5″, 7-1/2″, and 10″
  • used a ruler and stylus to score the diagonal lines as shown in the diagram
  • Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut into 1-3/4″ strips, then cut into triangles 2″ wide (see diagram below)
  • Whisper White Thick CS cut to 1-1/8″ x 3″

  • burnished all the folds in the Cherry Cobbler CS base with a Bone Folder (This is much more easily done after making the cuts.)

Bone Appétit for APPT Blog Hop 09-2019

APPT headerIt’s time for the APPT Blog Hop for September! This month’s kit is called Bone Appétit, and it makes adorable treat boxes. I used the kit to decorate one of the boxes a little differently from the directions in the Bone Appétit kit, and to make a card that mimics the dots on the box. I love the intricate die cut “webs” of bones. And the die cut skeletons are so cute! The one on my card is holding a sign with the greeting, “Happy Halloween,” which is just one of several great sentiments in the Bone Appétit stamp set. I’ll be using this stamp set a lot, since our Halloween party theme this year is Bones!

I’m sorry there have been several days in the past couple weeks when I didn’t get a blog post done. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that during this time of year our house is consumed with Halloween party prep. There’s little room in the whole place to walk because of all the boxes and totes packed full of skeletons, skulls, bones, etc., as well as other Halloween goodies. There’s a lot to do and not a lot of time left to do it. So please forgive me if I’m not as present online as usual in the next few weeks.
