Hello friends! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today and I am excited to be sharing two cards made using the Extraordinary digital stamp set from the August release at Joy Clair Designs called “Wonderfully.” This digital stamp set features beautiful floral inspired images that would be perfect for many all-occasion cards.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Altenew Watercolor Stripes Coverplate die, I die cut the frame from white cardstock. Underneath the frame I die cut a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of rainbow printed paper to allow it to peek through the frame. I printed multiple envelopes from the Extraordinary digital stamp set onto Neenah White cardstock. I colored the envelopes with Copic markers and fussy cut the envelopes by hand. I adhered the envelopes to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I printed the sentiment on Neenah white cardstock and used a 2″ oval punch to punch out the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the envelopes for added sparkle.
Here is the second card I created using similar elements from the Extraordinary digital stamp set:
This slimline card measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of magenta pink cardstock for the first matted layer. I cut a 8″ x 3″ piece of black cardstock and cut three square frames out of it to form the shaker frame of this card. I lined the back of the frame with acetate. I cut a 8″ x 3″ piece of black and white striped paper and placed it directly over the magenta pink cardstock. I sprinkled approximately two tablespoons of black sequins on top of the striped paper and placed my shaker frame on top of the sequins. I printed the envelopes from the Extraordinary digital stamp set at 115% – so they are slightly larger in size. I colored the envelopes and bee image with Copic markers and fussy cut them by hand. I adhered the images to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I printed the digital sentiment on a thin strip of Neenah White cardstock. I notched the right edge before adhering the sentiment strip to the card. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s cards featuring the Extraordinary digital stamp set from the new Wonderfully collection! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day! For more inspiration, you can follow me on my website, Instagram, Facebook and on my YouTube channel.
