Flip Up Valentines Day Card

In this post we feature a flip up Valentines Day card. The layout and structure can be used for any occasion and makes a fun card to give someone.  A unique opening for the inside message is simple and offers more areas to embellish. This card is flat enough to mail if your embellishments are kept at a low profile (mine were not). We feature our  Rose Heart Banner Rubber Stamp  at the bottom right corner of the card flip, offset. Reinforced with recycled chip board, it makes an awesome showpiece. Card cuts needed for this project: 3" x 4" inside mat for your sentiment 2.75" x 6" for the folded front layer 4.25" x 5.5" card 4" x 5.25" mat for card front (optional) An A2 card (4.25" x 5.5") with lighter pink mat 4" x 5.25" I added a die cut on top of the inside mat. Our  Heartfelt Hug Rubber Stamp  measures about 2" x 2". Also, our  Thank You Hug Rubber Stamp  would be perfect when creating a special 'Thank You'

Rubber Stamping in Red and Green

We have several rubber stamps of Poinsettias for the holiday crafter. In this post, I'll show you some examples of super cute Christmas themed paper projects using red and green stamping inks. Our  Labrador Christmas Rubber Stamp  is designed to compliment our  Poinsettia Border Rubber Stamp . Above is a simple Christmas card featuring both. The flowers flow from the truck to the outside circle. The  Season's Greetings Rubber Stamp  is featured on the top A2 card.  Tip: when using die cuts on cards, especially intricate ones like the oval shaped one, glue it down using a glue stick. This looks good when using a different color in the same shade family, like a dark green and light green card stock. Above are some gift boxes that feature: Color Me Poinsettia Rubber Stamp  (bottom gift box) Holly Background Rubber Stamp (middle gift box)  and Poinsettia Border Rubber Stamp  stamped in a dark green ink, watercolored in and gold glitter glue added to the flowers. Above, our Color Me
