I wanted to repost this card idea featuring the Heartwarming Hugs Suite from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog because it features the Double Wonder Cards (designed by Shannon West) which makes a stack of beautiful cards in a flash. It can be adapted to any Designer Series Paper and Stamp Set you want. The template link is below. So, if you are running a little behind in the busyness of the season this is a good solution to get those card done!
The Stamparatus on page 164 of the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog makes light work when making multiples. For this grouping of cards, I cut eleven 2″ x 2″ squares of Whisper White Cardstock, lined it up in the corner of the Stamparatus and stamped both the frame and the sentiment. It’s a wonderful tool! The Stamparatus:
- allows re-stamping images that aren’t inked enough or pressed enough.
- aligns and positions perfectly.
- makes mass production a breeze.
- helps arthritic hands stamp with ease (you can even use a rubber brayer to apply the pressure to the lid)
- Whisper White Cardstock: Two 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. A 6″ x 8″ for sentiment die cuts.
- Mossy Meadow: One 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
- Real Red Cardstock: Two 8 1/2″x 11″ sheet cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. One 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. A 6″ x 8″ for circle die cuts.
- Heart Hugs Designer Series Paper: Two sheets cut per template.
I have a few tips and variations to the instructions you will find at the link above (“template” under Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper).
- Before making the cards: I stamped all 11 sentiments with the Stamparatus and die cut them, adding dimensionals to the back.
- I die cut 11 of the stitched circle from the Warm Wrapped Dies.
- I used 10 1/2″ of ribbon for cards 1-4. I applied by placing a strip of Stampin’ Seal vertically on the stitched circle and putting the ribbon in place.
- I used 6″ of ribbon cut at 2 1/2″ for the banner ends of cards 5-8. I applied with Stampin’ Seal placed horizontally on the stitched circle.
- I eliminated the ribbon on card 9-10 because there were already 3 patterns and I didn’t want to add another (the stripe in the ribbon).
- I changed the orientation of card 11 and eliminated the ribbon for the same reason above.
