Blogging Friends Blog Hop!


Welcome to the FIRST ever “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!”
Up until one month ago we were a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada whom had never met before.  Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun new blog hop.  Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created! 

For my project I made a simple square card.  What I love about it is the Designer series paper is cut to 4 x 4 so you can get 9 of these cards from one sheet of paper.  The black mat is cut to 4 1/8 square and the card base is 4 1/4 by 8 1/2.  If you watch the video I state this size wrong- 

The image is embossed with Black embossing powder and heat set.  the ribbon is tied with the two different ribbons careful layered together and tied around the mat as well at the DSP then the whole card front is attached to the card base with dimentionals.  The Envelope is cut down to 4 3/8 Square, sealed shut then the cut end has a panel of DSP 4 3/8 by 2 inches attached to it,  The panel of DSP  was scored along the long edge at 1/2 inch.  This is explained further in my video.  I hope you enjoy my little project-be sure to make you way around the hop and visit all the blogs!

Mary, I really like you card and matching envelope. The brooms look great embossed. I also love the detail on the inside of the card. I love how you were able to educate people on how to get more cards out of a single sheet of DSP! I've really enjoyed our first "hop"! :-)
