Tall Card using Woven Threads and the Braided Border Punch


Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for your visit. Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!

I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator based in the UK, so if you live in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands or United Kingdom, you are eligible to purchase from me, but regardless of where you are from, I do appreciate your visit to my blog.

Some of the products I have used are available as Last Chance Products – While Supplies last or until 2ndJune 2020.

 See below for the specific products included. 

Today I have made a tall card – it measures 4” x 8¼” and will fit into a DL sized envelope.  I have wanted to do this design for a while and this sized card is perfect for it.  The background designer series paper is Woven Threads, coupled with Seaside Spray and Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Braided Border Punch to create two separate strips measuring 8½” long to fit the card and staggered them side by side before adding a ½” wide strip of Seaside Spray over the top.  I adhered this to the DSP off-centre, at ½” inwards from the right hand side.  I cut off the excess overhanging border punch, then attached the panel to the card base, which was made from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, measuring 8” x 8¼” and scored in half on the 8” side.  The sentiment is from the Vibrant Vases stamp set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  I cut this out with my Big Shot using the second-to-smallest circle from the Stitched Shape Dies, then cut the backing from Seaside Spray cardstock, using the next sized up circle from the same set.  I adhered the two circles together then attached them over the braided border and added three Flower Faceted Gems in Mint Macaron.

Thank you for viewing my project today.  If you make a purchase with me this month for £30 or more (excluding postage) in addition to a thank you card and gift, you will also receive a card kit, which will comprise of three cards to assemble yourself, all papers will be pre-cut for you with the card base, envelopes and any die cuts provided, the only item not provided will be adhesive, as I find the preference of this differs greatly between crafters.

If you wish to place an order, make a note of the item numbers and use the ‘Shop Now’ tab above, available 24/7, not forgetting to use the current  Hostess Code  which is PKH4JDUB  if your order is under £150.  Every customer will receive a thank you gift from me, sent separately from your Stampin’ Up order but please  don’t  select the No Contact option at the check out, as I won’t be able to send you your gift the following month.  Besides this you may also receive a few emails from me about your order.  If your order is over £150 you get to choose your own rewards.

See you next time,
