Simple Handmade Card Design with the Magnolia Lane Designer Paper


Hi stamping friends! Melissa Kerman here
with Melissa’s Crafting Treehouse. Today I have a simple project for you made
with the Magnolia Lane designer series paper. Now I love designer series paper
especially one as beautiful as this because it makes it really easy to make
a simple card that’s really elegant and beautiful. Now this card is also a club
project and a free card kit project that is available to anybody who purchases in
my online store and there are details about how to qualify for that in the
description below this video. For the stamped images on this card I’ll be
using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. Now that set also has a coordinating set
of dies which I’m showing you there and I’m gonna start with stamping my
sentiment and the floral image around the edge. I’ve actually already done that
so I first stamped the thanks image in the Early Espresso and then I took three
of those beautiful little floral images and stamped them in the Petal Pink and
I tried to nest them very closely up to the image because I will be die-cutting
that piece out and I wanted to make sure to show as much of the flowers as
possible. So I did of course stamp three of those images sort of in a triangle
sort of orientation relative to the thanks. Next I’m going to be die-cutting
the sentiment using two different sets of framelits or dies.
One is the stitched shapes framelits so I’ve got my little oval on there now and
I’m positioning it so that the thanks of course is oriented how I want it to be
and then I’m gonna also die-cut a scalloped edge oval. Now these are from
my layering ovals dies and I love these sets of dies because they coordinate
really well and the stitched shapes framelits also has circles and squares
that coordinate with the other dies that we sell at Stampin Up. The circle
layering circles framelits and the layering squares framelits. So they’re
super versatile. I use them all the time and love them.
So one thing to be aware of with the stitched framelits in particular is that
the paper is a little bit hard to get out of the die. It’s almost like the
paper is stitched into the stitched die. So you just kind of have to use your
finger to push against the paper where it meets the die and push it out all
around the edges. So now off-camera I’ve put adhesive on the back side of
that Thanks stitched shape so that I can place it right on top of my early
espresso oval and then I’ve also put dimensionals on the back side of my oval
so it’s all ready to put together on the front of my card. So now I’m going to do
some quick assembly of the card and I’ve already put adhesive on the backsides of
lots of these pieces just to make it really easy. So I’ve got my designer
series paper got adhesive on the back and I’m just going to attach it to my
early espresso layer. Next I’m going to attach my Organdy Striped Petal Pink
ribbon. So I’ve just got a single strip there. I’m gonna put glue dots on the end
on each end and then wrap it around at the backside of the early espresso layer.
So I’ve already put dimensionals on the back side of my early espresso piece and
I’ve removed the backings just to make it easy but first I have to wrap that
organdy ribbon around the back side with the glue dots, glue dots will hold it
down. And then I’m adding an extra dimensional at the end just since I’ve
covered up that one dimensional on the corner there. And now I’m just attaching
that whole piece, assembled piece to the card base. Now that’s a mossy meadow card
base and I’m attaching my sentiment and finally I’m just going to tie a little
tie right there in the front. I call this a faux tie. You could actually
use a whole piece of ribbon wrap it around and tie it but it’s a little bit
hard to get it nice and taut so that’s one advantage and it’s also a little bit
easier to get the look that you like plus it saves ribbon.
And there’s my finished card. If you’re interested in learning more about my
