This is a thinking-of-you card made with the Needle & Thread Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog. It has two pockets which will hold tags, money or gift cards.
First, I started with an 8 ½ x 11 piece of Needlepoint Nook DSP. I held the paper in portrait position and scored at the 4 ¼ inches from top to bottom. I turned the paper to Landscape position and scored at 5 ½ inches from top to bottom.
Second, I turned the paper back to portrait position and marked 4 ¼ inches from the left top corner, down the left side. Next, I scored from this point to top of center score line. Then, I turned the paper 180 degrees and repeated this step, but marked and scored at 3 ½ inches.
Third, while in portrait position, I cut the right middle score line to the center.
Fourth, I folded the right bottom of paper over to the left side. Then, I folded the bottom of paper upwards to the top of card. Next, I folded the right upper side of paper to the left side.
Fifth, I colored a Basic white brad with an Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. I punched a hole on the right side of card (in folds) and placed the colored brad. Then, I adhered Mini Glue Dots along the edge of the right side edge.
Sixth, I die cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. I stamped a sentiment in the middle of the layer using Berry Burst ink. Next, I stamped the Needle art image with Crushed Curry ink to the top of the layer. I adhered this layer to a piece of Berry Burst cardstock with SNAIL adhesive. Then, I matted the layered piece to Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered the lower part of the piece to the card front.
Seventh, I stamped the largest flower from the set on Balmy Blue Cardstock with Versamark ink and die cut it with the Needlepoint Elements Framelits. Then, I adhered it to the right lower corner of the stamped image with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered one of the Butterfly Elements with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to the flower center. (The Butterfly Elements sold out shortly after completing this card but they could be replaced with the coordinating Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons.) Next, I die cut leaves from Old Olive cardstock and adhered with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen around the flower.
Eighth, I die cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. Then, I stamped the Stitched butterfly image several times onto this layer with Crushed Curry ink. Next, I matted this layer to a piece of Berry Burst cardstock. I followed by matting this piece to a layer of Crushed Curry cardstock. Finally, I placed the layered piece into the first pocket of the card.
Ninth, I cut another layer of Very Vanilla cardstock with a larger Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die. I Layered this piece to a Berry Burst mat and finished by layering it to a Crushed Curry mat. Then, I stamped the stitched pattern across the top of tag with Old Olive ink. I followed by stamping the sentiment in Berry Burst ink. Next, I adhered a Butterfly element above the sentiment with the Fine Tip Glue pen. (The Butterfly Elements sold out shortly after completing this card but they could be replaced with one of the Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons.) This completed piece was placed into the second pocket.
