Stamping: Training For Your Diet

I’ve been calling this the “diet training card” all week at Stamp Club, because the M&M’s are tucked inside the cute Heart Treat Cup (120435) where you can’t reach them. So you put this card on your desk and stare at it all day, and tell yourself, “I don’t need to eat those right now.”

Really what’s going through your head is, “Maybe I can sneak a few M&M’s out without destroying the card.” But the question is… are you willing to risk it? In the meantime, there are a few less M&M’s that you have to record on your calorie sheet for the day 🙂

Kidding aside, the few M&M’s inside this card that I can’t reach are NOTHING compared to the number I’ve eaten while helping my Stamp Clubbers make this card all week 😉

This is a fabulous stand-up card design that’s REALLY easy to create:

  • Cardstock: 4 ¼ x 11” and 4 ¼ x 5 ½”
  • Begin by folding the 4 ¼” cardstock in half, then fold the card front back to the fold. The 11” cardstock will now be scored at 2 ¼ and 5 ½”.
  • With the cardstock folded as described, add Sticky Strip to the ½ panel.Layer the 4 ¼ x 5 ½” piece over the top to make the new card front.
  • Add an extra panel to the ‘inside’ of the card (i.e. Heartfelt Thanks panel) and attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the card ‘front’ will remain standing when tucked behind the edge of the inner panel.

Using the Sweetheart Stamp Set (120415-wood or 120780-clear) is a breeze with the matching Full Heart Punch (113693). Just stamp, punch a heart hole and stick the Heart Treat Cup through the hole!

I also used the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set (117010-wood or 118571-clear) from the Occasions Mini Catalog for this card. The wood grain heart is definitely my favorite, although the three hearts that match the Heart to Heart Punch are a close second.
