B right and cheery happy mail card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Daffodil Delight Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Bermuda Bay Cardstock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" of lines of packages, letters, paper airplanes, and postage stamps on yellow background design from Snail Mail Designer Series Paper, cut so the lines are horizontal on the vertical rectangle
- 1" x 3-1/2" from Bermuda Bay Cardstock
- 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" from Basic White Cardstock
Unlock the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Slide one short edge of the Bermuda Bay strip into the right side of the punch (the side of the punch with the flatter label top) as far as it will go. Punch.
Insert the punched Bermuda Bay strip into the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Use the line printed on the front of the embossing folder to help you line the cardstock up straight. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Adhere the punched and dry embossed strip of Bermuda Bay to the large Snail Mail Designer Paper rectangle so the punched edge is on the left and is about 1" from the left side. The right, flat end of the Bermuda Bay strip should hang over the right edge of the designer paper rectangle. The bottom edge of the Bermuda Bay strip should be about 1-1/2" from the bottom edge of the designer paper rectangle.
Use Paper Snips to cut off excess Bermuda Bay cardstock on the right side of the designer paper rectangle.
Adhere the designer paper rectangle with Bermuda Bay strip attached to the large Bermuda Bay rectangle and then to the front of the Daffodil Delight card.
Mount the "Happy Mail enclosed" postage stamp image from the Snailed It Set on Block C. Use the side of the brush tip of the Real Red Marker to ink up the words "Happy Mail." Use the side of the brush tip of the Bermuda Bay Marker to ink up the word "enclosed" and the dots around the edge of the image. Don't worry about inking up the envelope image. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink. Stamp the image on the bottom of the vertical white strip. Clean the stamp with the Stampin' Mist and Stampin' Scrub and/or Simply Shammy, but leave it on the block.
Unlock the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Hold the punch upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped postage stamp image into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch. Save both pieces of cardstock!
Adhere the postage stamp punch out to the front of the card so it is centered over the Bermuda Bay strip.
Re-ink the postage stamp image using the Memento Pad. Stamp the image on the remaining piece of white cardstock so you get the envelope image.
Pick out the matching, small, open envelope die from the Snail Dies. Put it on top of the stamped envelope image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the envelope is centered in the die. Run through the tool.
Put the envelope cut out on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. You need to make sure that you protect your work surface with paper as the Stampin' Blends Markers do bleed through.
Use the Dark and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends to color in the envelope.
Use a Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the colored envelope cut out to the front of the card so it is centered in the bottom of the postage stamp punch out.
Cut a 16" piece of the Blushing Bride Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.
Fold the twine in half. Tie a small bow in the center of the folded twine. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the twine bow to the bottom right corner of the postage stamp punch out.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a red heart from a sheet of Resin Hearts making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the heart on the colored envelope cut out on the front of the card.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a large Crushed Curry dot from a sheet of Playing With Patterns Resin Dots making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the punched end of the Bermuda Bay strip in the center.
