My Birthday Infinity Card by Judy Newsome

My birthday was one month ago today, so I guess it’s about time I posted another birthday card I received, eh? This one is from Judy Newsome, an incredibly talented member of my Candy Hearts team (and my big sister!) It’s an infinity card. You begin by opening the front page to the sides, like French Doors. Then you open the next page vertically. Then horizontally, then vertically, until you get back to the front. She used my favorite current Stampin’ Up! color, Blueberry Bushel. When I saw everything she used to make this card (take a look at the products listed near the bottom of this post!) and realized the time she spent putting it all together, well, talk about feeling loved! I sure do! Thanks again, Judy!

 

Here’s what she made:

I covered the handwritten sentiment in the bottom center square, because you don’t want to see all that mushy sister stuff.

 

Here’s how to make the infinity card:

I posted the directions to make an infinity card a couple years ago. CLICK HERE to see that post. That card was 5″ x 7″, and Judy’s card is 6″ x 6″. So to make Judy’s card, you’ll start with 4 pieces of paper cut to 3″ x 6″, instead of 2 cut to 2-1/2″ x 7″ and 2 cut to 5″ x 3-1/2″. And you will score all 4 of the 3″ x 6″ pieces 1-1/2″ from each end.

Peaceful Reflection Stamparatus Wreath Card

Today I’m finally getting around to posting a card with a Stamparatus wreath. I used two images from the Peaceful Reflections stamp set. The one I used as a flower is actually a butterfly, but when you stamp it around in a circle like this, you can make a wreath out of just about any image.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pineapple Punch card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Optional: Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card. Not needed because the Pineapple Punch card base is light enough to write on.

Die cut using the Layering Squares Framelits:

  • a piece of Whisper White CS using the largest plain square die
  • the same piece a second time, cutting it diagonally across the first cut
  • This created the template for the wreath.

Die cut using the Foliage Frame Framelits:

  • leafy frame from a scrap of Granny Apple Green CS

Stamped with the Peaceful Reflections stamp set:

  • sentiment in Granny Apple Green ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • butterfly/flower in Pineapple Punch ink onto the Whisper White CS die cut square, in a circle on the Stamparatus
  • leaf in Granny Apple Green ink onto the Whisper White CS die cut square, in a circle on the Stamparatus
  • NOTE: See the Stamparatus wreath technique below.

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • one scalloped circle from a scrap of Granny Apple Green CS
  • one slightly larger scalloped circle from a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • stamped wreath using a plain circle die

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

  • sentiment

Cut using the 1″ Circle Punch:

  • center cut from the stamped circle

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • stamped wreath glued onto the leafy frame
  • leafy frame glued onto the Granny Apple Green scalloped circle
  • Granny Apple Green scalloped circle glued onto the Whisper White scalloped circle
  • sentiment glued onto a scrap of Pineapple Punch CS, then trimmed around the edges with Paper Snips to create the mat
  • sentiment adhered over the stamped wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White Tulle Ribbon adhered to the front of the card base using Tear & Tape, or Snail, just in the center
  • Whisper White scalloped circle glued over the ribbon, onto the front of the card base

 

Here’s the Stamparatus Wreath Technique:

Create the template:

  • Die cut a square from a piece of card stock.
  • Turn the die 45 degrees and cut again, to make an 8 pointed star.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy

Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy

Stamp the wreath:

  • Place the template in the Stamparatus and hold in place with a magnet.
  • Lay the die cut square in the template.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Line up one of the stamps with the square, then stamp.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Move the square around to the next point, and stamp again. (I used darker ink in this example so you could see it better.)
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Continue all around until you’ve stamped it 8 times, once at each point.
  • At this point you can line up another stamp, or move the stamp you were using to another spot on the square. Then stamp another 8 times. You can keep adding layers like this as long as you want.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Be sure to keep the template for future use.

A Copper Foil Sheet embossed with the Lovely Floral Dynamic embossing folder make this birthday card shine.
