In an earlier post this week, the Needlepoint Nook bundle was introduced to you. Today, I am featuring the Needlepoint Nook bundle in three different cards. The Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper is especially highlighted. The detail of the designer series paper is amazing! You are able to see the individual embroidery strands of the stitches. With such detail, it makes creating cards simple since the paper can be the feature element.
As you look at the samples, notice the first two from the left are very simple cards. The pink card really features the paper with just a ribbon tie and a stamped sentiment added. This card is perfect for the beginning stamper or anyone needing a quick to make card. To create the sentiment, first use the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die to emboss embroidery stitching on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Next you will stamp the sentiment into the center of the embossed piece. Lastly, cut the shape using the coordinating Pretty Label Punch.
The blue butterfly card includes a “tuxedo” fold to add interest to the card front. The double-sided designer series paper is great since the reverse design coordinates perfectly. To create the “tuxedo” look, mark the midpoint of the designer series paper. For the sample above, the designer series paper is 5-1/4″ x 4″ so the midpoint is 2″ from right edge and 2-9/16″ from top (the Stampin’ Trimmer is the perfect tool to use!). After marking the midpoint, cut from the midpoint to the right edge. Fold back the flaps to create the “tuxedo” collar. After folding, attach the designer series paper to a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of whisper white cardstock.
The far right sample is good transition card for a beginning stamper to build upon their skills. The layered embellishment and sentiment are stamped using colors that coordinate with the paper. With the Needlepoint Elements Dies it is easy to cut the shapes. To add more visual interest, snip between each strand of the Flax Ribbon and separate the strands.
Remember for a 10% savings, order the Needle & Thread Bundle. The bundle includes the Needle & Thread Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Needlepoint Elements Dies.
