Clubhouse Easy Fun Fold Card

Hello and welcome to my blog: today I am going to share with you a card I designed for a Make & Take at a Local Demonstrator meeting a few weeks ago.  Each quarter the Demonstrators in North Alabama have a quarterly get together and talk about different topics, we also do a couple Make & Takes and I volunteered to provide one of them this quarter.  I decided to design my project around the Country Club Suite in the new 2020 Mini Catalog.  I designed a very easy fun fold card using this suite of products.  And It's also a great masculine Birthday Card for any guy in your life that loves to golf.  Here's a look at my project.

The Clubhouse Bundle includes the Clubhouse Stamp Set and the Golf Club Dies.  Celebrate all things masculine and sporty with the detailed golfing, line-art images in the Clubhouse Stamp Set. Create a golf-themed greeting card for the men in your life.  GOLF CLUB DIES allows you to 
create fun cards and projects for the golf lovers in your life. The dies include a die-cut golf ball, golf clubs, golfer, and more.  Pair with the coordinating Clubhouse Stamp Set to quickly cut out stamped images from the set. Make Father’s Day cards, birthday cards, and more! Great for masculine projects.  When you pair the stamp set and dies with the matching Country Club Designer Series Paper you will hit a hole in one with clubhouse-themed paper. This high-quality printed paper is excellent scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more. Pack includes various golf-themed images, prints, and patterns. It’s a great choice for masculine cards and projects


Tips & Tricks; 

The first thing that I did for my card was to cut the card base to size and did my score lines.  This card has two score lines one at 4 1/4" and the other at 1".  On the smaller score line that's to be folded back I stamped the golf ball up and down that side in Garden Green ink.  Which by the way was the only ink pad I used for this card.   I then added a small strip of Whisper White behind the stamped piece and added some of the Country Club Twine Combo Pack to that side wrapping it around and then tied it into a bow.  The Twine Combo pack comes with four spools of twine one each in the following colors.  Poppy Parade, Basic Black, Night of Navy, and Garden Green.  The Country Club Twine Combo Pack is perfect for cards, tags, treat packaging and so much more.  

I then took a strip of the Country Club Designer Series paper and cut it into two pieces.  One that measured 1" x 5 1/2 and the other was 1 1/8" x 5 1/2".  The larger of the two was attached to the outside of the card and the 1" strip was placed on the inside of the card.  I then stamped the golf ball and tee from the stamp set and cut it out with the matching die.  I added a whisper white strip of cardstock with the outside sentiment to fold on the front using dimensionals only on the fold.  I popped the golf ball up also with a dimensional.  You don't want to place the dimensionals on the opening passed the fold because you will glue your card close.  
For the inside of the card I stamped the golfer and the Happy Birthday Sentiment on a piece of whisper white cardstock and attached it to the inside allowing a mat around this piece.  So when you open the card you have this fun inside sentiment and place to write your message.  

Sizes & Dimensions: 

  • Garden Green Cardstock:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 & 1" 
  • Whisper White Cardstock:  1/2" x 5 1/2", 3" x 5 1/4", 2 1/2" x 1 1/4", scrap for Golf Ball and tee,
  • Country Club Designer Series Paper:  2 1/8" x 5 1/2" cut to 1" x 5 1/2" 
  • 20 - 24" of Country Club Twine

Window Card - Honey Bee Bundle Stampin' Up! Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; I hope that you are having a wonderful day.  Today, I am going to share with you a super quick and easy window card using a new bundle from Stampin' Up!.  The Honey Bee Bundle is one of the twenty new bundles in the January-June Mini Catalog.  It's also one of those that I noticed right off the bat when I first thumbed through the catalog.  It's a super cute Spring and Summer stamp set that will let you create great greeting cards that are oh so sweet.  Here's a look at my project.


Tips & Tricks: 

With the Honey Bee Stamp Set, you’ll make greeting cards that are oh, so sweet! Use the greetings in this set to convey your thoughts of friendship and support. This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. **Patent pending

The Honey Bee Bundle includes the Honey Bee Stamp Set and the Detailed Bee Dies.  Create custom die-cut flowers, bees, a honeycomb, a beehive, and more using the Detailed Bee Dies. Use these dies with the Honey Bee Stamp Set to quickly cut out stamped images from the set. Create thank you cards, thinking of you cards, and other fun cards and paper crafts!
I stamped the large bee all over the Real Red card base in matching Real Red ink to add a little pattern and texture to the card.  I then used the Stitched Nested Label Dies to cut out the window on the card front.  I then stamped and die cut the large bee and the smaller one in Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with my Crushed Curry Stampin' Write marker (from the Regal Marker Collection).  Next I stamped the Bee Hive in Crushed Curry and cut everything out with the matching dies.  I added them to the front of the card with a couple dimensionals.
For the inside of the card since you are able to see inside with the window I added a strip of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (which can only be earned for Free with a qualifying order during Saleabration) to the center of the inside of the card.  I made sure that the designer series paper lined up with the points of the large stitched window.  I then added a thin strip of whisper white with the sentiment stamped in Real Red ink in the center of the designer series paper.  To finish off the card I added a few Red Rhinestones around the front of the card and on both sides of the sentiment.
