We had so much fun at stamp club this week, making congratulations cards for graduating family and friends. Usually I design the card and they make three of them, but for this project, I made three versions and they could choose which ones and mix and match based on who the cards were for. They loved choosing from the specialty papers and metallics to accent a clean and basic layout.
I laid out copper, silver and gold foil sheets, along with blush, red and sparkle glimmer cardstocks for them to use. They could choose to use the "negative" left after die-cutting the "you" letters, or use the letters themselves, or both!
TOP TIP: when die-cutting glimmer papers, run it through several times as it is tough to cut. Some people have better luck with putting the die facing cutting-side up instead of down. If it still refuses to put, add a piece of cardstock as a shim to make the "sandwich" even tighter and apply more pressure as it cuts.
We really have fun at club. If you're local to the Watertown, Wisconsin, area and are looking for stamping friends, we meet on the third Monday night of the month year-round, with a break in July and December. It's just $20 and we make 12 cards total, 3 each of four different designs. Contact me for more info! Lyssa@songofmyheartstampers.com
Not local? You can still get together with friends and make these cards. Here's what you'd need to order:
