I treated myself to a well-deserved massage yesterday. Ahhh…I had a LOT of stiff muscles, and Kaylene at Advanced Recovery Massage took care of me. During the NFL season she works on the Vikings players, so I had some talented hands working on my back. In fact she did such a great job that I slept almost 12 hours last night and woke up almost two hours ago. (I never sleep until 10!) So… that is my excuse for posting later than usual today. hahaha
I’m going to miss this bundle. I’ve seen so many beautiful cards shared on Pinterest with it. And that embossing folder was one that I used quite often. The stamp set, dies and embossing folder are all retiring and only available until June 3 (or while supplies last).
This would make a great graduation card. Don’t you think? Want to make this card? Here are the details.
- Gray Granite Cardstock
- 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half
- Scrap for die-cutting dream catcher with feathers
- Balmy Blue Cardstock
- 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″
- Whisper White Cardstock
- Two pieces that are 3-1/8″ x 4-3/8″
- Silver Foil Sheets
- Scrap for die-cutting dream catcher
Products I used… See below for a list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Die-cut dream catchers and connect together with a Glue Dot. Position on one Whisper White layer, but don’t adhere yet. Ink up sentiment stamp. Before stamping towards the top of the Whisper White piece, slide dream catchers out of the way. Stamp sentiment.
- Emboss front of Gray Granite card base. Trim up the back layer if necessary. (Embossing may cause your front layer of the card base to shrink up a bit.)
- Add the Balmy Blue layer to the front of the card base with Dimensionals, add the stamped Whisper White to the Balmy Blue with SNAIL, and then add the dream catchers with SNAIL.
- Add the second Whisper White to the inside of the card using SNAIL.
- Color a Frosted Epoxy Droplet with the Dark Balmy Blue Blends Marker, and add to the center of the dream catcher.
That’s it! Super simple. Hmm…I think I may need to make more of them. We have a few graduation cards to send this year.

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS
Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.
