Hmm… not sure that blog post title really came across quite right, but I’ll carry on anyway… LOL
This is a project that I created for the card kits that I’m sending as thank-yous for my April online orders (thanks everyone!). It uses the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set, which I’m totally in love with, along with the new Travel Journal Designer Series Paper, both from the Summer Mini Catalog.
1. Cut cardstock to sizes:
- Whisper White 5 ¼ x 7 ½” (fold in half to make card)
- Night of Navy: 4 x 5 ½ ” (mount behind white layer)
- Travel Journal Designer Series Paper :1 ½ x 3 ½” and 3 ½” square
- Whisper White: 2 x 2 ¼”
- Night of Navy: 1 ¾ x 2”
- Scraps: Whisper White
2. Fold the Whisper White piece in half to create the card and mount on Night of Navy background. This is a great technique for creating a white card inside for writing, but still having the effect of a dark background layer.
3. Layer the Travel Journal Designer Series Paper as shown and stamp greeting of your choice at the bottom right. Featured stamp set: On Your Birthday (set of 12, $33.95, 111664)
4. Stamp and punch out 9 Itty Bitty Bits images of your choice in Sahara Sand and Night of Navy.
5. Arrange as grid and attach. Layer Navy and White cardstock and attach to card.
You can also get more Itty Bitty Bits ideas as part of my Stamps in the Mail Club! You can still sign up for the new Round that runs for May, June and July. Ooh… did I mention that as a Stamps In the Mail Club member you’ll get a FREE copy of the new big catalog when it comes out on July 1st? Just one more enticement to sign up now 😉
And here is a copy of the card using the Sentimental Journey stamp set (Summer Mini Catalog) instead of Itty Bitty Bits. The Designer Series Paper in the Travel Journal paper pack is really flexible–you can use pretty much any stamp set to complement it.
