Guinness Book of World Records

This is the card I mailed to my down-line Tina at Convention to be a part of Stampin' UP!'s way into the Guinness Book of World Records as the most cards sent from one location!  We made it!!!! Woo hoo!  Hope you like the card Tina....

I used the Perfect Blend Stamp Set, DSP from the Season of Style Stack.  The saying was punched with the Artison Label Punch and I punched two more to make a layered outline.  I used the Regal Candy Dots to embellish.  It was a fun card to make and I stood in line for 2 hours just to get it included in the mailing!  The inside was computer generated and cut out with a Labels Collection Framelit.

Hope you get it okay Tina!

Happy Birthday for a co-worker

I did this card for a co-worker, her Birthday was yesterday.  I was introduced to the idea on this card from my very dear friend and fellow-Demonstrator Nancy Baladad.  This lady is so talented.  She found the idea here (Kerrystampinspiration).  Judy and I had so much fun at Nancy's, she gave us a stamp day that was "over-the-top"!  Thanks Nancy!

To make the card you use a piece of CS 8-1/2 x 11, cut in half length-wise so you end up with two pieces 4 1/4 x 11.  Score it on your ScoreBoard at 2 3/4" and 4 1/8" on the long side and flip it over and score it again from the other end at 2 3/4" and 4 1/8".  Fold and use your largest oval (the scallop one out of the Ovals Collection Framelits and viola, your card base!  The belly band is vellum cut 1" x 11.  The sentiment that you tuck into the back of the card is the same width as the center and cut it with the 6th oval from the middle (the one just inside the scallop oval) and center it and run it through ~ pretty cool huh?  Also, did you notice I used the brand new Envelope Liner Framelit Die for the inside of the envelope. Those will be available August 1st out of the new Holiday Catalog.
