Thanks for joining us as we “hop” through the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog ~ This worldwide group of demonstrators are thrilled to share exciting new creative ideas with you!
There are few things as versatile in your craft stash as “Basic Shapes” tools, so I’m delighted to showcase the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies:
One of the things I love about these framelits is that they cut a rectangle, but leave stitching on the inside AND outside of the shape!
Let’s learn how to make a landscape Lever Card using your rectangle framelits and the Amazing Life stamp set (bundle both items together and you save 10%!).
For this card you’ll also need:
- Card base (I used Granny Apple Green card stock): 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/5″
- Inside layer (white): 4″ x 9-1/2″ scored at 3″, 6″ and 9″
- Designer Series Paper-DSP- (I used Tropical Escape): 4″ x 5-1/4″
- One more piece of white card stock for front layer
- Ink: Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, Night of Navy
- Big Shot
Apply adhesive **just around the outside edge** of your DSP and adhere to front of card, then cut frame out with the Big Shot and separate the two pieces you cut out.
Stamp the inside layer (white) and fold into a “Z” and adhere the 3″ panel to the inside of the open card toward the right end (see photo above). Next, mark the 1/2″ tab through the window as shown (below left).
Cut out between the lines and along the score line with your scissors. I used Tear & Tape adhesive on the small tabs, then adhered the tabs to the front of the card just by closing the card. (Above, right)
Apply adhesive JUST TO THE WHITE layer you see through the front window and lay the green rectangle you cut out at the beginning right back into that opening. (It will only stick where the adhesive is on the white layer.)
Stamp and embellish a smaller rectangle to layer on top of front (swinging) panel.
I used the extra rectangle of DSP for the middle panel of the inside of the card…just used the other side of the pattern, so there’s very little waste!
