July Stamp Club

We made this card using the new Circle Circus Stamp set and 3 of the new In Colors; Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay ribbon. We also added 2 medium half pearls from the pretties kit and stamped a greeting from the new Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.
For our 12 x 12 spread we used the new Seeing Stars stamp set and Contempo Alphabet stamp set. We also used the large and small star punch which made this page simple and quick to make.
If you don't scrapbook then below are the alternative cards that can be made using pieces from the 12 x 12 kit. Sorry this first one got stuck next to a pen and got an ink spot on it.

I made 2 of the last card for a total of 4 alternative cards.
  • First you start with a 6" x 10 1/2" piece of Vanilla cardstock.
  • Then score the cardstock at 2 7/8", 5 7/8", and 9"from the bottom.
  • Fold at the score lines so that the card with fold together as shown in pic #2.
  • Slice a corner off of the bottom part to the left of the brad. This is hard to see but is in pic #1. This allows you to slip in cash or a gift card.
  • Poke a hole in the upper right side of the bottom part of the card and stick a brad through as shown in pic #1.
  • Stamp stars randomly on Whisper White cardstock and adhere it to the inside center of the card just above the gift card section as seen in pic #1.
  • Fold gift card section up to cover the Whisper White cardstock and add red star strip to the bottom which covers the back of the brad (pic #2).
  • Fold the top section down, add Real Red strip of paper at the bottom of the Vanilla cardstock (pic #3).
  • Add a 3/4" strip of Whisper White cardstock under the Real Red/Vanilla so that it hangs out about 1/2 inch longer than the Real Red strip (pic #3).
  • Add star block (pic #3).
  • Stamp a greeting just above the Real Red strip to the right of the star block (pic #3).
