Stampin’ Up! Just Keep Swimming + FREE Avant Garden Wonder Recipe #2


Hey Guys!
I can not wait to do some card making and stamping! I have set aside most of this weekend, starting as soon as I am done with this post, for paper crafts. Squee!

Today I have a Wonder Recipe #2 card for you featuring Stampin’ Up! Just Keep Swimming (2017 Occasions Catalog), Avant Garden (FREE with a $50 order for Sale-a-bration) and Writing Notes Background Stamp (2016-17 Annual Catalog).

Sale-a-bration is ON now! Don’t miss your chance to receive products like Avant Garden FREE.

Shop HERE – use the host code: C4K7JP7Q for a special thank you gift from me.

TRUE STORY:

Monday I needed a quick card that was smaller than 4 1/4″ wide because I was sending it with a project kit in an A10 envelope.

It had to be quick because I didn’t realize that A10 envelopes wouldn’t accommodate the 5 1/2 x 4 1/4″ cards I had already made!

I really wanted to get the project kit out to my customers that day! How was I going to do that if I had to design (and make bunches of) an entirely new thank you card??

WONDER RECIPE #2, that’s how!

I grabbed my 6 x 6″ Playful Palette DSP and cut a sheet according to the Wonder Recipe #2.

I gathered stamps, cardstock and ink. Stampin’ Up! supplies all coordinate perfectly with each other.

This card came together so quickly, and with the Wonder Recipe, I was able to make it in multiples of six with no waste.

I had plenty of cards to send and some to save for later. AWESOME.

Enjoy the video tutorial and the printable project sheet with cutting diagram, measurements and supply list.

THank you for stopping by today! May you make many cards this weekend too!
