Usually my workshops focus on making a card using a stamping technique. But I attended a Stampin' Up! demonstrators workshop a few months ago and figured out how to make framed display boxes. I saw all kinds of possibilities; flowers, butterflies, seasonal messages like Christmas, Fourth of July, etc. But this one is a message of perseverance and finding joy in our lives.
The method of making the framed box and the stand supporting it from behind, is difficult to describe on a blog. I did provide my workshop attendees with detailed directions and I can do so for you if you will email me or reply on a blog comment. The fee for the instructions are $5 and includes postage. This is a challenging paper craft project but worth the effort. I made one of these with my 14 year old niece over the weekend and did turned out lovely.

To make this card, I grabbed a little bit for three Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Petite Petals and Botanticals For You (from 2017 Sale-a-Bration). This project is to show how well the Stampin' Up! sets go together. They are designed to work with each other and enhance the background or message of a card you are designing.
My workshop class received Crumb Cake envelopes to go with the card. But sadly, and I don't know why, Stampin' Up! did not continue the Crumb Cake envelopes in the new 2017-2018 Catalog.
...Because You're Awesome
- Stamp Sets - Botanticals for You (SAB 2017), Gorgeous Grunge (130517), Petite Petals (133155).
- Card Stock - Crumb Cake 11"x4 1/4", score & fold 5 1/2". Designer Series Paper Crumb Cake 5 1/4"x1". Whisper White 5 1/4"x4" and scrap paper for flowers
- Inks - Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride
- Punch - Petite Petals
- Basic Pearls
- Directions - On the left hand side of the Whisper White 5 1/4"x4" card stock, stamp the water spot from Gorgeous Grunge. Stamp twice showing a lighter shade of Crumb Cake ink. Tape the 1" Designer Series Paper over the stamping. Stamp the message under the 1" paper band. Using the Whisper White scrap paper, stamp the petals and punch. Each petals is layered and you need to punch two for each flower. You can add a third flower is you would like. Tape down on folded card stock and you're done.
The two Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets I used on this quick and easy card are both ones I have used on many card projects. Why? Because they are versatile and everyone loves flowers. I like adding the little ladybug here and there. So grab some shades of ink and make a bunch of these to share for all kinds of occasions.
