Framed Occasions Card

Fun and Bright!

It’s hard to stay on the Christmas trek I’ve been on when the temperature outside is so high so I thought I’d take a trip back to the Annual Catalog.

I’ve used some fun green colors to make this “Best Day Ever” card.

To make this card, you’ll need the following supplies:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Basic White ( 8 ½” x 5 ½”, scored at 4 ¼” along long side; 3 ¾” x 5”, scrap (at least 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”); Shaded Spruce (4 1/8” x 5 3/8”)
  • Inks: Shaded Spruce, Parakeet Party
  • Basic Tools: Snips, Trimmer, Adhesives (Glue, Glue Dots), Clear Blocks
  • Additional Tools/Supplies: Artistic Mix Masks, Blending Brushes, Cut & Emboss Machine (Regular or Mini)
  • Stamps/Dies: Framed Occasions Stamp Set, Beautiful Shapes Dies

To make this card, follow these steps:

  • Adhere Shaded Spruce panel to cardbase with adhesive
  • Using Blending Brushes with the ‘plaid’ masks, the Shaded Spruce and Parakeet Party inks, color the 3 ¾” x 5” Basic White panel – when done, adhere the panel to the Shaded Spruce
  • In Shaded Spruce ink, stamp the hexagon outline and sentiment from the Framed Occasions stamp set. Cut out using one of the hexagon dies from the Beautiful Shapes Dies
  • Using Parakeet Party ink, stamp the leaf outline around the hexagon shape as shown. Using the leaf ‘fill-in’ stamp, stamp off once in Parakeet Party ink to fill in the leaf shapes. Adhere this piece to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
