Today I'm sharing a card method that I found on Lisa Young's BLOG - the moment I seen these pop up presents I wanted to give it a whirl! She has a great step by step tutorial on her blog to help you along with all the dimensions and scoring - gotta love a good tutorial!! After making the base of the card, the wrapping on the presents and the designing of the card front is up to you! I decided to stick with the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack in Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery. The ribbon is some left overs from Sale-a-bration :)
Stamp Sets: Delightful Dozen
Cardstock: Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack (Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery)
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Sale-a-bration ribbon pack in Island Indigo and Pool Party (retired), snail, mini glue dots
Some very exciting news was released this morning from Stampin' Up! In 2010, after a huge color renovation, it was decided that every three to five years they like to do a little "Color Refresh" with the core colors in all four color groups - Brights, Subtles, Regals, and Neutrals. Here's the new core color list along with 10 discontinuing colors, plus one BRAND NEW COLOR ADDED!
I must admit the Subtle discontinued list made me a little sad at first glance - all four colors are ones I rely on more often than I'd like to admit, but I'm so very happy to see Pool Party and Blushing Bride on the new core list in their place!
