Cherry Builder Punch Vellum Card & Blog Hop

Hello from along the tidal Skutik (St Croix) River! I'm here in Saint Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada - just across the river from Calais, Maine, USA. 

This beautiful area is connected to the Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest tides. It's the traditional territory and home of the Passamaquoddy, and I'm grateful they share it with us.

Thank you for joining us on our blog hop across the Stampin' Up!® world. Contributors are all members of the fantastic Demonstrator Training Group organized by Kylie & Bruno Bertucci in Australia. A big thank you to our fabulous leaders, Kylie & Bruno!  

Today we're featuring cards with the theme of thank you or congratulations. We've made them to say thank you to our lovely customers or teams. 

My card today is my card of the month. I send the pieces to everyone who orders with me during February, so they can have the fun of making it, too.

Just click on the Blog Hop Links at the end of this post to see more cards. 

Here's my card:

This vellum card front design comes from an old card I had in my stash. Then I modified the dimensions, patterns, and techniques used to make a brand new card.

I'll include a clickable photo supply list for you at the end of this post.

To make this card, I first cut a 5 1/2" x 8" piece of Vellum Cardstock, then scored it at 2" and 6". I carefully folded on the score lines so that the flaps met in the middle. 

Onto the back of the card (the large panel of Vellum), I added a reinforcing 4" x 5 1/2" panel of Pecan Pie Cardstock. Inside the card, I attached a 3 15/16" x 5 1/2" panel of Sunny Days DSP in the cherry pattern.

This terrific DSP is available as a FREE item with every $60 spend during Sale-A-Bration. Make sure to get it soon, as it disappears after February 29! Here's a look at its cheery patterns:

Next, I stamped my sentiment from the Share a Milkshake Stamp Set onto a 2 3/4" square. I adhered the square to a 3" Shaded Spruce square and attached them to the left front of the card.

Using the Cherry Builder Punch, I punched out a leaf from Shaded Spruce Cardstock, a cherry from Poppy Parade Cardstock, and a stem from Pecan Pie Cardstock. I assembled them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and used Stampin' Dimensionals™ to adhere them to the white square. 

I then embellished with Opaque Faceted Gems, another terrific freebie available from Sale-A-Bration with $60 spend: 

To finish the card, I added a writing surface inside the card. I made it by attaching a 2 1/2" square of Poppy Parade Cardstock and a 2 1/4" square of Basic White Cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this project, friends! Please check out all the other cards from around the world.
