August Rewards Cards

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

Here are the August rewards cards, and I’m so sorry that they’re so late.

We took a long weekend to visit my brother and sister-in-law in Guffey, Colorado, where we had a wonderful time with lots of family members.

And, I’ve been busily working on my BOGO, which you can see by clicking on the BOGO tab.  It’s a great way to add to your collection for FREE when you make a qualifying purchase.  There are over 300 stamp sets/bundles already listed with more to come.

Please let me know if you have any questions.  303-888-1862

Many hugs, Pat

Standing Trees Card


Original by Terri Gaines

Note:  The bottom photo shows the inside of the card with the card laying on a piece of white paper.

This card look very complicated, but it’s actually easy.

I’d suggest that you lay the card together as explained below before you actually start adhering it.

The card base is not a folded base but a flat piece of Mossy Meadow card stock, which is cut to 5 ½ x 4 ¼.

Place the designer paper 1/8” from the top, centering it so that each side has approximately 1/8” of Mossy Meadow showing.

You have an 11” piece of Mossy Meadow that is a couple of inches wide.  Attach the “back” half of the folded strip to your card base, lining it up with the bottom of the card.

Attach the trees to the front of that piece.  Glue works well, but don’t add adhesive very far up on the trees or your card won’t open.

Attach the smaller strip of designer paper over the top of the trees, covering the base of the trees.

Banner one end of the small white card stock for your greeting.

The two pieces of white go on the inside of the card as shown in the second picture.

Hill 5 ½ x 1 ½
Flap 6 x 2 3/8

Blackberry Beauty Butterfly Card (light colored)

Original by Christi Rearden Redding

This card uses one of the more neutral sheets from the beautiful Blackberry Beauty designer paper.

I love this card, but it isn’t too easy to cut the butterflies from the Be Dazzling paper.  It would also look good with foil paper for them.  When cutting the butterflies from the Be Dazzling paper, strip the backing off from the paper before cutting.

The butterflies are attached with glue dots

The line thread is wrapped around and tied into a bow as I imagine you can see.

The greeting is attached with dimensionals.
