Perennial Lavender Book Fold Card

It’s been a month since last posting!  Where has time gone?  Even though I haven’t taken the time to post, it doesn’t mean that I’ve not been crafting.  Actually, I’ve been spending more time crafting than doing lots of other things.  So today, I decided it was “computer time” and I’ve been busy outlining my posts for the next few weeks.

Now on to today’s card!  It’s a book fold card featuring the Perennial Lavender Product Suite.  The product suite features two stamp/die bundles – Perennial Postage and Painted Lavender.  In addition, the suite features the Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper and two different embellishments.  For the February monthly card class, the cards all featured products from the suite.  In addition, word sentiments from the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder was incorporated on several of the projects.  In the assembly video below, I also demonstrate how to use the hybrid embossing folder along with recreating the card.

Bee Mine Valentine Card

Isn’t the bumblebee the cutest?! Today’s card features the Bee My Valentine Bundle and the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Jan-Apr 2024 Mini Catalog. I’m using it as a Valentine’s card but the sentiment works for other occasions too. Perhaps as a fun anniversary card or just a way to express love. The cheerful Bee Mine Designer Series Paper provides the perfect background for the card. You’ll notice that the sentiment is cut with the Heart Punch…unfortunately after using, I realized the punch is retired. However if you don’t have a heart punch or a heart die, a circle punch or other shape to cut around the sentiment will work great.

Do you want to recreate the card? The cut dimensions for the cardstock and Bee Mine Designer Series Paper, as well as, an assembly video are below to make it convenient for you!

Cut Dimensions for the Bee Mine Valentine Card:
  • Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score/fold at 5-1/2″ (card base)
  • 3″ x 4″ Bee Mine Designer Series Paper: (3) 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″; coordinating panel: 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″
  • Basic White Cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″; 4″ x 5-1/4″ (interior)
  • Daffodil Delight Cardstock: scrap for bee
  • Petal Pink Cardstock: scrap for wings
ASSEMBLY VIDEO

As you notice, this cheerful card is simple to assemble! And the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper is the perfect backdrop. The card is a project from the January 2024 Monthly Card Class. You can find information on classes and Class Kits To Go at this link.
