Good morning! Today I have some cards to share using the Springtime and Sentimental Mash-Up stamp sets from this month’s release at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. This cute spring set is a must have and the sentiment set will be a great go-to set for your cards! First I stamped the boots image and accented it with the little ladybug. The blue cardstock layers were leftover from die-cutting the frame for this card. I embossed them with a subtle texture embossing folder.
I’ve been wanting to try the Bridge Card fold so that’s where my inspiration for my second card started. I wanted the bottom piece across the front to be grass and the pieces all fell into place from there. These are SO fun and easy. I can see many more in the future!
This card does lay flat and fit in an A2 envelope for mailing!
There are a few variations on these, including horizontal and vertical cards. The measurements I followed are to start with a 4 1/4″ x 8″ base, scoring each end @ 1 1/4″ and 2 1/2″. The Bridge piece is 5 1/2″ wide x however tall you want it. Mine is about 1 3/8″ at the tallest peak after die-cutting the grass edge. My patterned paper layers are 1 1/8 x 4 1/8 and 2 7/8 x 4 1/8.
Have a great day!
