Darling Label Punch Box

Today I’ve got a really fun card I created using the Darling Label Punch Box.  

Stampin' Up! Darling Label Punch Box, Stampin' Studio

This box of product features 2 ink spots (Grapefruit Grove & Night of Navy),  a clear block for attaching the stamps, the Darling Label Punch and the stamp set all in a gorgeous tin box.

Rather than the entire card being folded in half like most cards are, this one has a front panel that opens up while the rest of the card does not.  I started with a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Night of Navy for the base of the card and layered on a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Grapefruit Grove that I embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing folder.  The flap that opens is a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 2-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ and is scored at 4-1/4.  After temporarily attaching a 2″ x 4″ piece of Garden Impressions DSP to the top flap with just a tiny bit of Snail adhesive, I inserted the top flap all the way into Darling Label Punch centering from side to side and punched.  Next, I removed the DSP and stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy through the “window ” opening onto the inside of the flap.  I used a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment again, this time in Grapefruit Grove and fussy cut around “birthday” part of the sentiment.  Before reattaching the Garden Impression DSP I attached the “birthday” banner to the front flap with snail.  The final touch was adding the Grapefruit Grove Ribbon around the front flap.

Winter Woods Bundle

Night of Navy and Whisper White is such a classic color combination.  When silver is added to the pair, you’ve now moved it up a notch to classy.  I adore the simple elegance of this card which features the Winter Woods Bundle from the Holiday catalog.

Rustic Christmas with Peaceful Noel Bundle

I love the way this card turned out!  I was going for a rustic Christmas feel and I think I achieved it with the plaid and burlap.  What do you think?

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Noel stamp set, Sprig Punch, Stampin' Studio

I used the Corrugated Embossing Folder for the texture on the background.  Important Tip when using the Corrugated Embossing Folder, you’ll want to sandwich your cardstock between 2 sheets of Waxed Paper so that the deep impressions don’t tear the cardstock.  The plaid print is from the Festive Farmhouse DSP and then I layered it on a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock before wrapping the Striped Burlap Trim around these layers.  The focal point starts out with a Crumb Cake circle cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, then layered with Old Olive and Mossy Meadow greenery punched using the Sprig Punch.  The Cherry Cobbler Banner was stamped with the sentiment from the Joyous Noel stamp set.  The finishing touch is a Galvanized Clip adorned with a Linen Thread bow.  Both the Joyous Noel stamp set and the Sprig Punch are part of the Joyous Noel Bundle and offered at a 10% savings.
