‘Sup, y’all!? Having a good weekend? As I predicted, ours has been all about the rat-killing. Is that a term you know? It sort of means…getting all the things done that are just a smidge annoying but…have to get done anyway! Even Finn did some.
Not really. Dogs (certainly the ones whose last names are “Deatherage”!) have a pretty rat-free life! He napped. He sniffed. He licked bowls. Pretty much your average Finn day! 🙂
As a polar opposite to the rat killing – I have a super cute and FUN card for you today! It features the new Silly Goose stamp set – some wunnermus Dandy Designs DSP – and a cool fun fold! Take a look-see:
The Spring-y color palette is from the Global Design Project color challenge this week!
I started with a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Basic White cardstock that I scored at 1 1/4″, 5 1/2″ and 9 1/4″ along the long side of the panel. I folded the 1 1/4″ score as a “mountain”, the 5 1/2″ as a “mountain” and the 9 1/4″ as a “valley”.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped one of the Silly Goose sentiments in Balmy Blue. Then I adhered it to a So Saffron mat and to the “front” panel of the card. TIP: before you adhere the matted panel to the card base, fold the card as it’s meant to be folded – and be sure you’re going for the correct panel! 😉
For the inside sentiment, I stamped the uber-cute Silly Goose image of the wing-bumping geese in Basic Gray ink. Then I colored them with my Light Smoky Slate and Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I added some Granny Apple Green grass and…a sentiment nestled right in between them! Which was easy to do because I elected to buy this set as a Photopolymer set!
Did you know that there are FIVE sets in the Jan – Jun 2023 Mini that you can pick EITHER Cling OR Photopolymer!? Yep. True Story! Silly Goose, Around the Bend, Fragrant Flowers, Happy Labels and Lighting the Way! I got them ALL in photopolymer but I LOVE that we get the choice!!
I matted the panel on So Saffron cardstock and adhered it to the inside panel of the card base.
Then it was just a matter of picking my DSP patterns from the cool Dandy Designs DSP (this is a FREE pack of DSP awesomeness with a $100+ purchase during Sale-A-Bration!) and matting them on So Saffron cardstock!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the matted panels to the front and back of each of the narrower panels, and to the inside of the card – next to the sentiment panel.
With all the matted sentiment and DSP panels in place, I turned to the belly band.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the floating Silly Goose with her frog friend in Basic Gray ink. Then I colored the image with my Balmy Blue, So Saffron and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.
I cut out the image with a Layering Circles die and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a So Saffron scalloped Layering Circles die cut mat.
The belly band itself is another design from the Dandy Designs DSP pack, cut 1″ x 12″ and wrapped around the folded card. I used Liquid Glue to adhere the ends together. Tip: you want this to be sort of snug but not really. Like Goldilocks…Juuuuust right! You need to be able to get the band on and off the card, but…it shouldn’t slip right off every time you blink, either!
I adhered my matted circle to the belly band with Liquid Glue. I left the extra DSP in place and used my Paper Snips to cut a banner end in it! Just something a little different!
I added some Balmy Blue and gold Pastel Adhesive-backed Sequins and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the fist-bumping geese – along with a too cute sentiment – on the front…
…and a little more Dandy Designs DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! So…I got this Silly Goose stamp set cuz I thought it was kinda cute. Now? I am completely in love with it – it is WAY more cute than I even realized! It’s got great sentiments for your cards to friends who maybe just need a little…goose bump? 😉 And the Dandy Designs DSP – it makes me want to make this crd like….10 more times – each with a different color combo to show off the amazing – FREE! – paper!
I hope you like!
