We started with a base, 8-1/4″ x 7″, scored at 2-3/4″ from the left edge and the top (at the left edge). Make pencil marks at 5-1/2″ from the left top corner, both across and down. Below is looking at the inside of the card.

Monday Mystery Stamping – 1/16/23

Our third Mystery Zoom of 2023! Here are the tunnel cards we made.

We started with a base, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored AFTER the sentiment or image is stamped in the center. Another piece of a complimentary color 8-1/4″ x 5-1/4″, scored in the center and then each side in half is layered on top of the base. Cut an opening in this layer using an oval, circle, rectangle, heart, whatever you like. If you have a coordinating sized die, use the smaller one in a piece of white, vanilla or complimentary color. Add DSP to each side panel, then embellish as desired.

For the card front, use DSP or an embossed panel 4″ wide x 5-1/4″ tall. It can be layered.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Winter Holidays

Welcome to our December Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator has created projects with the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and July-December Mini-catalog products. You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. Below my card is a list of links to all of the participating bloggers.

My card features the Leaves of Holly Bundle (#159608)! Isn’t it beautiful? The card base is Gray Granite with a layer of Evening Evergreen and another layer of Boughs of Holly DSP. The holly leaves were stamped in Evening Evergreen on Basic White and then the second layer of stamping in Gray Granite. The holly leaf dies from the Holly Berry Dies (#159607). The berries were two-step stamped in Real Red and Cherry Cobbler, then die cut. The sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set (#159601) was stamped in Evening Evergreen and die cut. A piece of White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon(#151326) was woven behind the sentiment to finish my card.
