I have decided to showcase some of my new favorite stamp sets from the Annual Catalog. I think this one is a "sleeper". It is Pallet Thoughts, and while at first glance it seems like a manly set, it can be just as easily girly! Here is the card I made on my Hello Handsome, Simple Sunday Live yesterday.
My dimensions were:
Card Base - Basic Grey 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
Mat- Crumb Cake 5 1/4" x 4"
Inside Mat: Very Vanilla 5 1/4" x 4"
So now, let me show you how to step this up from a beginner to a casual stamper's card. My casual gals have a bit more supplies than just the basics. This is by no means a difficult card, just more steps. Using the same products..with two exceptions.Stamparatus, I stamped the outside of the 2" fold with Gray Granite. I had to cover the inside of my card with thin paper to protect it from the ink. I stamped once, moved the plates down 2 hinges and stamped again. I moved it again 2 hinges and stamped the third time. I opened the flap and did the same with the outer front piece. My lines were straight and met up! Just the way we want them. Finally I glued the 1 1/2" flap to the front.
