I rarely think to make a card that is not a standard size. Who knows what made me think to make a card that’s not standard and just a little bit of a tall card for today. Maybe because I got to use the Envelope Punch Board. I also had fun with the Stamparatus. Well, there are so many things to love on this card. Hard to say. But, here’s the card.

Before I Continue….

I got a bit of news on Sunday about the 24 Hour sale. Looks like some great stamp sets will be on sale. Yea!  Check out the video.

Here’s the list of stamp sets.

30th birthday sale items, Stampin' Up!

Design Notes for Tall Card:

When you want to have stamps placed “just so” the Stamparatus is the tool you need. I knew I wanted the “Happy Birthday” to be repeated on the card front – but not randomly! Because you can change where you put the stamp by moving the hinged acrylic plates, I knew I had to use the Stamparatus.

But, I didn’t move the acrylic plates! After each stamping, I moved the card stock down 1/2″ and over 1/2″.

Do you notice the partially stamped Happy Birthday? We have Small Grid Sheets that fit perfectly on the Stamparatus now. (I was originally going to have the sentiment repeat in a different way.)

I wanted to add some texture to the card front. The Galvanized Metallic Paper was meant for the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder!

And do you love this color combination? I think they compliment each other and both look great with the Galvanized Metallic Paper.

 

Because it was a different shape, I needed a custom made envelope. No problem with the Envelope Punch Board.
