Video: Die cut dimensional card

Having been the newest member of my work team not too long ago, I know firsthand what it feels like to join the ranks of employees who have been with the company over 5, 10, and even 20 years. When we added two new employees to our work family last month, I wanted to let them know they had our support and encouragement to so I organized a brunch and made two identical cards for our team to sign.

5.5″ square top folding card. Pattern paper from the 12×12 Silver Lining Stack by DCWV

I used DCWV white glitter paper (LOVE!) to mat the background. I then cut some silver foiled pattern paper with the largest die from the Spellbinders Labels 42 etched dies and adhered it with foam tape. I also added some ribbon for a decorative accent.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed “You’ve Got This” from Avery Elle’s “Brushed” stamp set in silver embossing powder from Ranger. It is one of my most used stamp sets (I’ve used the “happy birthday” in the same font countless times…).

I cut the scalloped circles out of Neenah cardstock and vellum using dies (2nd and 3rd largest) from Gina Marie Designs. They are priced affordably and cut like a dream!

I filmed myself while making these cards (my first time ever!), quickened up the speed so you aren’t watching me fiddle for 20 minutes, and added some music over top…here is my very first card making video…don’t laugh too hard!

I also made the envelope pictured below using the We R Memory Keepers envelope punchboard. I’m much more confident making “odd” sized cards now that I have the punchboard – I never have to worry about not having the right sized envelope for whatever size card I choose to make.
