At this time of year a lot of us Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who blog are posting “cautiously.” We don’t want to create and plan our posts with retiring products too far in advance just in case something we design has product that is all of a sudden unavailable. So as I am writing this post, I’m seeing that the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack IS STILL showing up in the online store! Yay!! Because look at this cute monster card you can make with the contents of this card pack.
Unfortunately one of the products I used to make this IS sold out, though…the 1″ Circle Punch. ?But I decided she was just too cute NOT to share. In fact she made an appearance on April 9th during my Facebook Live after sharing how to make a similar card. Click here to see that original card and watch the how-to video. Then afterwards you can use the measurements, tips, and supply list below to help you recreate this version of the monster card that I am sharing today.
- Card from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack
- 4″ x 6″ (this will become the patterned paper for the face
- Whisper White Cardstock
- 4” x 11” scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”
- Scrap for punching two 1-½” circles
- Basic Black Cardstock
- Scrap for punching two ½” circles
- Mossy Meadow Cardstock
- Scrap for punching two 1” circles
- After assembling the base part of the card to form the smile and opening (again…watch the video for tips and instructions), punch the circles for the eyes and layer them together. Adhere the eyes while also adding the eyelashes (leaf stickers).
- For the mouth, adhere the flower stickers. Add the outer ones first, then add the center one. From the front of the card when the mouth is closed these should look like teeth. Pounce the Embossing Buddy on the sticky side (the teeth side) releasing the powder to get rid of the stickiness.
- Add the sentiment stickers and a 4th flower sticker to finish off the card.
Remember that once a product on the retiring/last-chance list is gone, it is gone for good. So get one more look at what will be leaving by clicking here to see what is remaining in the online store (which is the most up-to-date way of seeing what is still available).
