Encircled in Nature Greeting Card

Hope you’re having a great day! We awoke to a cool morning which is unusual during June in this area of Georgia. Though it’s going to be warm, the humidity is low so definitely a day to enjoy the outdoors. But first, I am sharing a beautiful greeting card featuring the Encircled in Nature Bundle from Stampin’ Up! This bundle is an Online Exclusive product so you will not find it in the catalog. It is one of the four cards from last month’s card class featuring all Online Exclusive Bundles.

If you haven’t purchased the Encircled in Nature Bundle, this month is the time to place your order. From now through June 30, Stampin’ Up! is offering an additional 10% discount on all stamp and die bundles. Be sure to take advantage of the savings!

In July, I’ll be using the Encircled in Nature bundle for one of my Christmas in July projects. Be sure to mark your calendars to follow me on YouTube for holiday project ideas.

Sending Cheer Christmas Gift Tags

It’s two weeks until Christmas…are your gifts wrapped yet? I still have gifts to wrap but am ready with gift tags for the presents. In last month’s card class, we made Christmas gift tags using the Sending Cheer Bundle from the Sept-Dec. Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Combining the Sending Cheer Christmas gift tags with the Tailor Made Tags Dies makes creating quick and easy. Need multiples?…It’s a breeze to do! To add “a little extra” use the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder but you can substitute with any embossing folder.

If you haven’t purchased the Sending Cheer Bundle – act fast! It’s on the Last Chance retiring list. It may not arrive in time to use for this Christmas but you’ll have it for next year. Plus there are elements appropriate for year round use. In addition, the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder is also retiring and is currently discounted too.

Three Christmas gift tags using the Sending Cheer Bundle and the Tailor Made Tag Dies from Stampin' Up!
Cut Dimensions:
  •  Basic White Cardstock: (3) 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ for tag die cuts; 2″ x 4″ (3) for stamping
  • Real Red Cardstock: 2-1/4″ x4-1/4″ (tag die cut), scrap for sentiment layering
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock: 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (tag die cut)
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (tag die cut)
  • Red & White Glitter Paper (retired): 2-1/2″ x 2″ for die cut on presents (or use cardstock and add shimmer with Wink of Stella)
