Crazy About You in a Box -- Part 2

Hello!

Today's post is a continuation of the previous post sharing a class project featuring four note cards in a magazine holder-style box.

In this post I'll be sharing the third and fourth cards in the box.  The third card has a masculine feel taken from the colors in the English Garden Designer Series Paper.

Thinking_of_You

This card begins with a card base of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  A rectangular window was cut into the upper center of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Stampin' Trimmer.  To do this:

  1. Place the Stampin' Trimmer on the table top with the cutting edge to the left.  
  2. Place the Mint Macaron cardstock on the Stampin' Trimmer with the 5-1/4" edge vertical and the left edge of the cardstock extending to the 3/4" mark on the left side of the cutting strip.  Place the pointer of the cutting blade at 1" on the cutting strip and move the cutting blade up the cutting strip until the pointer on the cutting blade reaches the 4-1/2" mark on the cutting strip.  
  3. Turn the cardstock 90 degrees so that the 4" edge is vertical and 3/4" of the cardstock extends beyond the left edge of the cutting strip.  Place the pointer of the cutting blade at 3/4" on the cutting strip and move the cutting blade up the cutting strip until the pointer on the cutting blade reaches the 3-1/4" mark on the cutting strip.
  4. Turn the cardstock 90 degrees so that the 5-1/4" edge is vertical with the left edge of the cardstock extending to the 3/4" mark on the left side of the cutting strip.  Place the pointer of the cutting blade at 3/4" on the cutting strip and move the cutting blade up the cutting strip until the pointer on the cutting blade reaches the 4-1/4" mark on the cutting strip.
  5. Turn the cardstock 90 degrees so that the 4" edge is vertical with the left edge of the cardstcok extending to the 1" mark on the left side of the cutting strip.  Place the pointer of the cutting blade at 3/4" on the cutting strip and move the cutting blade up the cutting strip until the pointer on the cutting blade reaches the 3-1/4" mark on the cutting strip.

Emboss the Mint Macaron cardstock in the Big Shot with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions embossing folder.  Placing a Mini Glue Dot at each corner of the window on the BACK of the embossed cardstock.  Place a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of English Garden Designer Series Paper face up on the table top and place window over the Designer Series Paper.  Adhere the embossed cardstock to the card base.

The scalloped flower from the Crazy About You stamp set was inked with Night of Navy ink, stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched with the 1-3/4" scallop circle punch.  Using Paper Snips, cut part way between each of the flower petals and then curl the petals up using the bone folder.  Thread a piece of Whisper White Baker's Twine through the holes in the Gold Basic Metal Button and knot.  Attach button to the center of the flower.  Using Mossy Meadow ink, stamp the leaf image on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with Paper Snips.  Attach the leaf near the bottom right corner of the window with a Mini Glue Dot and the flower over the leaf image with a Stampin' Dimensional.  

Die cut the "you" thinlit in the Big Shot using Night of Navy cardstock.  Attach the "you" across the Designer Series Paper inside the window using rolled up Mini Glue Dots OR 2-Way Glue Pen OR Fine Tip Glue Pen.  

Stamp the "THINKING OF" sentiment on Whisper White cardstock using Night of Navy ink.  Center the sentiment in the punch window of the Modern Label punch (Retired) and punch.  Punch a second label with Mossy Meadow cardstock.  Cut the Mossy Meadow label in half at the dip in the center of the label and attach to the back of the Whisper White label so that approximately 1/8" of the Mossy Meadow halves extend beyond the right and left edges of the Whisper White label.  Attach the sentiment at the upper left corner of the window using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The inside sentiment area of the card was lined with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  A coordinating strip of English Garden Designer Series Paper was adhered across the top edge of the liner.  The envelope flap of the Medium Whisper White Envelope was embossed in the Big Shot using the Brick Wall Textured Impressions embossing folder.

Supplies I used for this card -- 

Stamps:  Crazy About You; Inks:  Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy; Cardstock:  Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White; Designer Series Paper:  English Garden; Embellishments:  Gold Basic Metal Buttons, Whisper White Baker's Twine; Adhesives:  Fast Fuse, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals; Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, 1-3/4" Scallop circle punch, Modern Label punch (Retired), Big Shot w/Standard Cutting Plates, Multi-Purpose Platform, Brick Wall Textured Impressions embossing folder, Magnetic Platform, Hello You Thinlits; Other:  Medium Whisper White Envelope

The fourth card is my favorite for two reasons:  the first is that it's a shaker card and the second is because those bees just make me happy!

This card begins with a piece of Soft Suede cardstock die cut in the Big Shot near the upper center using the Lots of Labels Framelits.  The cardstock was then embossed in the Big Shot using the Honeycomb Textured Impressions embossing folder.  A piece of Hello Honey cardstock was die cut in the Big Shot using the next larger size Lots of Label Framelit used for the window with the die cut used for the window placed inside the larger Framelit.  This creates a frame for the window.  Attach the frame to the front of the embossed Soft Suede cardstock using Mini Glue Dots OR 2-Way Glue Pen OR Fine Tip Glue Pen.  

Turn the Soft Suede cardstock face down on the table top and place a piece of Window Sheet cut in a rectangle slightly larger than the height and width of the window opening.  Place a Mini Glue Dot at each corner of the window sheet and adhere the window sheet over the window opening.  Place a line of Stampin' Dimensionals approximately 1/8" away from the edge of the window (use the outside border pieces in long strips where you can) making sure that the Dimensionals butt up against each other so that none of the filler can escape between the Dimensionals later.  Place the filler on top of the window sheet.  For this card I used hearts punched from Hello Honey cardstock using the Confetti Hearts Border punch, stars punched from Soft Suede cardstock using the Confetti Stars Border punch, and Metallics Sequin Assortment.  Remove the adhesive covering from the Stampin' Dimensionals and place a piece of English Garden Designer Series Paper slightly larger than the height and width of the window opening over the window and filler and press in place.  Wrap a piece of Gold 1/8" ribbon around the bottom of the Soft Suede cardstock and knot on the left front.  Place Stampin' Dimensionals along the edges of the Soft Suede cardstock and adhere to the Hello Honey card base.  

Using Soft Suede ink, stamp "BIRTHDAY" on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Center the sentiment in the punch window of the Large Oval punch and punch.  Punch a piece of Gold Foil Sheet with the Scallop Oval punch.  Adhere the sentiment at the center of the Gold Scallop Oval.  Adhere the sentiment near the lower right corner of the window using Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Using the "happy" thinlit, die cut a piece of Gold Foil Sheet in the Big Shot and place across the window adhering to the Soft Suede cardstock using rolled up Mini Glue Dots, 2-Way Glue Pen, or Fine Tip Glue Pen.

My favorite is the Bee card too. So cute! I really like how you added the strip of DP to the inside. It really finishes it off! I like this holder too. I think I need to make one of these sets!
