For today’s card, I combine the brand-new Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper and the Sweetly Scripted stamp set with the split triangle card design. Find this beautiful double-sided, patterned paper in Stampin’ Up!’s 2024-2025 Annual Catalog. 

I’m happy to offer a free tutorial to help you create this card at home. Enjoy!

Sweetly Scripted Free Card Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

  • STAMPS – Sweetly Scripted (163600)
  • PAPER – Pretty in Pink Cardstock (163793), Summer Splash Cardstock (163797), Basic White Cardstock (159276), Unbounded Beauty 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) (163372)
  • INK – Summer Splash (163809)
  • OTHER – 2024-2026 In Color Shimmer Gems (163781), Stampin’ Seal (152813), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Paper Trimmer (152392)

Cutting & Scoring:  

  • Pretty in Pink Cardstock – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, scored at 4 ¼” and folded
  • Summer Splash – 4 ¼” x 3 ¼”
  • Basic White Cardstock – 5 ¼” x 4
  • DSP – 4” x 3”

Instructions:

  • Place your DSP in the Paper Trimmer at a diagonal. Line up the top right point and the bottom left point with the cutting track. Cut the paper in half on this diagonal, creating two triangles.
  • Cut the Summer Splash Cardstock in the same manner.
  • Adhere the DSP to the Summer Splash Cardstock pieces. There is a small border around the DSP. The Multipurpose Liquid Glue works best. It gives you a few seconds to be sure the pieces are where you want them.
  • Glue one triangle on the top left corner of the card base and another in the bottom right, leaving room to stamp the sentiment.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Summer Splash ink on a diagonal in the space between the triangles.
  • Add three Summer Splash gems.
  • Place Basic White Cardstock panel in the middle of the card.

Meandering Meadow Card Design

Meandering Meadow Card Design

There’s no doubt Stampin’ Up! offers the most gorgeous Designer Series Paper in the industry. Not only does Stampin’ Up! give us a wide array of 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 designs, the variety of images and patterns provide so many options for our paper crafting projects. Sometimes, it’s difficult to choose which side of the paper to use. 

Today, I’m sharing a card layout that allows you to use both sides. This works especially well for the 6 x 6 scenery paper, including the Meandering Meadows 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. It’s one of the Online Exclusives. Let me know if I can help you order this beautiful paper.

Take a look at the inside of this card.

  • Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/2 x 6. Score 1 3/4 inches in from the right-hand side.

  • Basic White card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 2 1/4
  • Any sentiment and embellishments for card front. I used Layering Leaves, Shaded Spruce, the Heartfelt Hexagon punch, Linen Thread, and the Adhesive-Backed Dragonflies & Birds.

Mother’s Day Fractured Card Technique

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s April Blog Hop! Thanks so much for joining us. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop. Leave a comment for a chance to win a Confetti Birthday Card Kit.

This month, we feature cards and projects with a Mother’s Day theme. Today, I share a handmade greeting card using the fractured card technique or faux shutter technique. 

Mother’s Day Fractured Card Technique

Mother's Day Fractured Card Technique

There are several ways to accomplish this technique. I chose the simplest. Here are some basic measurements to get you started.

  • Basic Black cardstock base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/5
  • Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/4 x 4 (I used the retiring Delightfully Eclectic, but many other patterned papers work well)
  • Four cardstock strips matching your card base measuring 5 1/2 x 1/4
  • A Basic White square (I die cut mine with the Stylish Shapes Dies)
  • Sentiment and ink of choice (I used the “So Happy to Celebrate You from the Layering Leaves stamp set for the outside and the Happy Mother’s Day from Perennial Lavender for the inside. Flowers come from Petal Park stamp set.)
