My Stamp Clubs started again last night for 2012. It was SO AWESOME to be back in the groove of holding classes after the holiday break!
‘Tis the season for cold and flu, so thought it would be fun to make light of this and create a fun card to send to one of your sickly friends! (I joked at Stamp Club that I hope my sister holds onto her cold a few days longer so I could pop this in the mail to her! JUST KIDDING of course – but not really…..LOL)
I LOVED outside of Renee’s card found HERE. I thought it would be fun to add a 3-D tissue box on the inside – so the “surprise” of this card is when you open it up! Up pops a tissue box, with a real tissue inside!
Stamp Sets: Button Buddies, Word Play, Sweetly Said, Serene Snowflakes
Paper: Whisper White, Marina Mist
Ink: Basic Black, Marina Mist, Real Red
Accessories: Designer Frames Embossing Folder, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine, Button, Tissue, Small Oval Punch, Simply Scored Tool
NOTES: The tissue box is a 6 1/4″ x 3″ piece of cardstock that is scored at 1 1/2″, 3″, 4 1/2″ & 6″. Tape the box shut, then attach it in the center of the card at the fold line. It will collapse nicely when the card is folded.
To add the tissue inside, cut a tissue in half. Then separate it so it is 1-ply, (makes it less bulky). Stuff it in the tissue box.
Here’s a photo of the treats I made for Stamp Club. I found the recipe on this blog HERE. (Basically it’s just the peanut blossom recipe subbing Dove Chocolate hearts for the center. However, I LOVE this recipe even more than the one I have, so I will be using this one from now on. They are really LIGHT and fluffy!)
