‘Make it Monday’ with a twist

Welcome to this weeks Make it Monday, I have something extra special for you.

I have used the retiring ‘Layered with Kindness’ stamp set, which is still available(until 3rd June if not sold out sooner) it has matching punches & is such a lovely stamp set.

To make this you will need:

Layered with Kindness stamp set

Label me Lovely Punch

Label me Fancy Punch

Very Vanilla card stock – half sheet lengthways for card base, one piece @ 5 & 7/16” x 4 & 12/16” for front of card stamping & two @ 3 & 6/16” x 4” plus scraps for stamping on

Mint Macaron card stock – one @ 5 & 10/16” x 4 & 5/16” for card front, one @ 4” x 4 & 10/16” for inside, plus a scrap for stamping

Inks Used: Memento Black, Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose, Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron, Seaside Spray & Balmy Blue.

Multipurpose Glue


Bone folder

Paper Snips/scissors

Paper Trimmer

Let’s put our card together:

Take your card base fold in half & burnish with bone folder, with multipurpose glue stick your Mint Macaron front piece to card base, leaving an even border around it, add inside Mint Macaron layer to the back of the inside of card, leaving an even border on right plus top & bottom edges & pop aside.

Take the two 3 & 6/16” x 4” pieces & score both @ 1/2”, 1 & 1/2”, 2” & 3” fold & burnish all score lines, then with multipurpose glue on the 6/16” edge join & rub inside with bone to secure, from both open ends of each piece/tube.

With joined edges on the bottom add multipurpose glue to inside edge of one piece/tube(see photo above) make sure to only add it to the outer edge, approx to 1/4” not more as this is where our gift card will go. Set aside to dry.

Let’s do some stamping!

Take your Mint Macaron scrap & stamp ‘Happy Birthday’ image in Memento Black & punch out with Label me Lovely punch. Stamp again on scrap Whisper White & punch out just the word section with smaller Label me Fancy punch add to stamped Mint Macaron piece with multipurpose glue.

Next it’s time to stamp the leaves & flowers on Very Vanilla piece. Do a dry fit of sentiment to work out placement & starting with leaves stamp in Mossy Meadow twice for each leaf without re stamping around where sentiment will be & then 3 times full strength on scrap Very Vanilla & fussy cut out, plus stamp four single leaves on scrap Very Vanilla & fussy cut out, pop aside.

Next stamp large flower in Rococo Rose approx 4 times around leaves & 5 times on scrap & fussy cut these out, pop aside. Do a dry fit of sentiment for placement of flowers if need be.

Stamp a mix of blue flowers around & between leaves(you can choose to use all the same colours I have or you can use a single colour) add sentiment with dimensionals & place fussy cut leaves under sentiment with multipurpose glue & with dimensionals add flowers as I have done – some under & some over sentiment.

Place glue on one of the solid 1” edges of gift card holder(I placed the joins so they would be at the side) & add to inside back of card base next to Mint Macaron close to centre fold, evenly top to bottom, make sure card can fold nicely – fold & rub, add multipurpose glue to side edge(this should match up with front of card) close card & rub to secure in place. Add one fussy cut flower & two leaves to inside right bottom of Mint Macaron.

It should look like this

All done, pop your gift card in for the lucky recipient.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.
