Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday Happy Forest Friends Card

Happy Monday Stampers, Its Alternate Monday time!

What is Alternate Monday???  This means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Forest Friends:

The Recipe:

Card base: Basic White 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Mossy Meadow 4 x 5-1/4

panel behind DSP: Basic White 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

DSP: Happy Forest Friends DSP  (Cuts in the directions below)

Mat for fox image: Mossy Meadow Die cut with the Layering Circle Dies

The Details:

  • Here are the cuts for the Stack and Shuffle DSP
  • Layer all 4 piece of your DSP together and cut all at the same time
  • Cut the stacked layer 3-7/8 x 5-1/8
  • With the paper in the portrait position cut the paper at 2-11/16 (this leaves you with a strip that measures 1-3/16
  • Cut the 2-7-8 (this leaves you with another part that measures 2 3-1/6
  • Cut the thin strip at 3-3/16  (this leaves you with a part that measures 1-15/16
  • Arrange the cuts and attach to the 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 panel of Basic White card stock
  • Die the a fox from the Happy Forest Friends DSP with the Stylish Shapes Die
  • Mount this DSP panel to the Mossy Meadow mat
  • Adhere your 3-7/8 x 5-1/8  DSP panel to the Mossy Meadow mat
  • Wrap a piece of Old Olive Twill Ribbon around the stacked panel

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink using the Go To Greetings stamp set onto white card stock
  • Die cut the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangle Dies

Putting the Card Together:

  • Attach the DSP matted panel to the card front with Dimensionals
  • Attach the matted fox image to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere the sentiment to the bottom of fox die cut panel with Stampin Seal

Finishing Touches:

  • Add a Old Olive Twill Ribbon bow to the left of the sentiment with a Glue Dot
  • Adhere some Rustic Metallic Dot here and there on the front of the card and you are done
