A warm welcome to October’s Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop, where this month we are sharing our favourites of the season. The Seasonal Catalogue is in full swing and I can firmly say, that I have my favourites of the season.
I’m sure these girls above have fabulous inspiration to share of their favourites, so be sure to hop around.
For me, my firm favourite from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue is the First Frost Suite. The papers have really captured my eye with the dual sided frosted finish and the delicate images. These images would team well with the faux silk technique, which I’d not done for a while. I created a little note card wallet a month back, that I’d been asked the measurements of, so decided to include them here.
I love the faux silk technique. It helps give a real vintage look to a project. To create this you simply crumple up tissue paper that you then lay over your pre stamped matting layer, that has a layer of adhesive over. The most ideal being the adhesive sheets that we currently stock. The creases and folds help give that illusion of raw silk – it’s a beautiful effect.
I’ve always felt that the Pool Party ribbon colour, is a real vintage colour. I wanted a delicate lace or frill to appear on the side of this project, so punched this edging out of vellum. I liked the softness that this created.
Inside this Note Card Holder, I’ve added some coordinating note cards, complete with the same ribbon and vellum edging and faux silk finish. Really simple little cards, but ever so effective.
Note Card Wallet Tutorial
This note card wallet generated a lot of requests for measurements, which you’ll find below.
The cardstock you need measures 7 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ and is then scored at 3 7/8″ and 4 3/8″ along the 8 1/4″ side and at 5 1/4″ and 5 1/2″ on the shorter side.
You then want to measure 1″ out at the bottom from the two vertical score lines and drawing a line across the top horizontal line, join the corner to the 1″ mark and cut this section out.
You then need two smaller pieces measuring 1 1/4″ x 2″, scored at 1/2″ and 3/4″. These pieces form the sides of the note card holder.
Attach each smaller piece to the bottom edge and folding it up, secure it in place to form your pocket.
This would make a great little gift to give with your favourites of the season in and such a simple little wallet to create too.
I hope you’ve enjoyed what I’ve shared with you today and that you’ll get making your own version. You’ll now want to work your way down the Hop list to see what other inspiration there is on offer from the girls. Thanks for hopping by.
Have a great weekend.
