I think Mother Nature is very confused this spring. One day it is 47 degrees and the next it is 75! Spring is trying to push through the cold weather but that winter just doesn’t want to quite give up and pushes spring back. I guess the only saving grace is it has not snowed here in Nashville for awhile. Of course, now that I said that, it will probably snow tomorrow!
I am hoping by posting a springy/summery card, winter will go away and let us enjoy warmer weather. The New Horizons Designer Series Paper is perfect for that. This DSP is my all time favorite. You can make the most beautiful cards using this Designer Series Paper without adding much to it. Unfortunately, this paper will be retiring at the end of the January – June Mini Catalog period (June 30th). This is one of those products that I will hoard and keep forever.
I decided to use the New Horizons DSP to make a Triple Layer card. To make it I first used the largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut the background layer. Then I took two smaller ones and cut out the center of the largest die cut into a total of three pieces. I adhered the biggest one to an Evening Evergreen card base. Then I adhered the smaller pieces to a slightly larger Evening Evergreen piece and layered them all on top.
Next I cut out the background of the word “thanks” three times in Basic White card stock and adhered them together using Multipurpose Glue. I like how it looks thicker on the card but doesn’t add a lot of bulk. Then I cut the word “thanks” out of Evening Evergreen card stock and glued that to the Basic White background. Thankfully, the Amazing Thanks dies will be available in the next catalog. It was a quick and easy card to make but the Triple Layer adds some interest to it.
Don’t forget that May 2nd is the last day to order from the 2021/2022 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. Then, on May 3rd the 2022/2023 Annual Catalog starts. If you are a customer of mine who ordered a minimum of $50 from me, you should have received a copy of the new catalog in the mail. If you did not order that much or if you are a new customer, I would be happy to send you a new catalog in the mail for the cost of shipping or you are welcome to come pick one up.
