New Stampin Up Catalog Products Wedding Card - For the Newlyweds

What is clear, plastic, designer printed, and nearly effortless to use to create a card with? Stampin' Up! Printed Window Sheets!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw 2 new sets of them in the Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog! I get way too excited over this stuff, I know.

The window sheet on the wedding card I created today is from the current mini catalog expiring tomorrow, but rest assured - it's also available to order from the new catalog on July 1st! These Printed Window Sheets are perfect for overlays and photo frames. You'll see them again on this blog. Hee hee! Click HERE for my 4th of July card. Aren't they fun?!

I really enjoyed creating this card because I'm a big fan of black & white. The supply list will be provided at the end of the post.

I will fill you in on a few details about creating this card:

1) The sentiment in the scallop circle is from a new set in the 2009-2010 Stampin' Up! Catalog. It's called Teeny Tiny Wishes. There is nothing "Teeny" about how many stamps you get in this set or how much use you'll get out of it. It's a set of 24 with all the different holidays and occasions you can think of!

2) I outlined the little scallops with the fine tip end of the Basic Black marker.

3) I cut a slit for the ribbon at the top of the card using a Hobby Blade. I punched a small circle at the top and bottom of the scallop circle. I thread the ribbon through the holes, folded them over, trimmed, and secured with a brad through the entire card front. This will hold the window sheet in place as well. No glue or tape marks - bonus!

4) I attached the entire black card on a piece of Whisper White cardstock as a base for the card. It really makes your card a little different from the rest when you add this type of background.

Just a reminder, you will be able to order from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog this Wednesday, July 1st after 12pm. Please be patient when ordering online. My site will be busy which slows things down a bit.

Have a great day!

Tiffany
