Hi everyone! Jan here today, sharing a Christmas card made with a new Stephanie Barnard Stand-Up Card Framelits set. I love these stand-up easel cards.
Die-cut the Bubbly Stand-Up Framelits card base using the Sizzix die-cutting sandwich as follows: Multipurpose Platform on tab 2, Cutting Pad (I like to use my Sizzix Extended Cutting Pads for these card bases as they are the same size as the standard size and might slip when cutting), paper, Framelits die, cutting side down, and Extended Cutting pad.
These Stand-up Card Sets have so many pieces in them! Once you have your base die-cut, there are many choices to use for embellishing.
In addition to the mats and shapes in this set, I also used the Stephanie Barnard Bubbly Framelit set. This set matches the shape on the stand-up card and is great for using more sizes for layering. When die-cutting these shapes, I used the Sizzix sandwich using my Magnetic Platform, (or your Platform base at tab 2) Standard Cutting Pad, paper, Framelits die cutting side face down, Cutting pad.
I used pop dots for added dimension when adhering some of my layers. Everything was inked on the edges before adhering. A cut out star from my patterned paper was added.
There's a strip Framelits die in the Stand-up Card Set, which I die-cut using a thin double sided adhesive sheet (Stick It).
Remove one side of the die-cut adhesive sheet backing and adhere to the card base. Remove the remaining backing and apply glitter to the sticky die-cut.
I decided to add a strip of ribbon in the middle of this, for added dimension.
A small ribbon bow completed my card.
These cards fold nice and flat too.
I was having so much fun using this Stand-Up die set, I decided to also make a birthday card. I need one for a birthday coming up, and decided to add in these dragonflies from the Stephanie Barnard Dragonflies Triplets 9pce set. There's so many possibilities with these dies, mix, match, layer, or stack. I used vellum for the top layer on one of them and pieced different patterned papers for the other.
These cards are fast and easy to make, love all the different possible combinations!
Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays!
