Stand up and Smile

Hello! I am sharing a wonderful new card base that The Stamps of Life released called Word Stand-Up with the Word Stand-Up extras. These two sets are so versatile and will make an instant showcase out of your cards. The card base lays flat for mailing, however; has a notch to pop up the word up! The Hello Word Stand-Up Die comes with 18 pieces. The Word Stand-Up Extras are Smile, Love and Thanks. As card makers we definitely use those all the time!

I die cut the card base with the drop in die SMILE first from Powder Sugar CS. I took a layering piece and blended a light Sky background. I added Kiwi CS die cut from Border Die set. Adhere those two together and place them beneath the SMILE pop up. I stamp, color and die cut images from GetWell2you and Friends4Cookie. Those images are also placed on that scene beneath the SMILE sentiment. Lastly, I use only the SMILE drop in and die cut from Tangerine, Lemonade, Kiwi, Sky and Grape CS the individual letters for a colorful touch to the SMILE sentiment. I also add small Butterfly2stamp on some letters.

For the inside of the card I used 2 layering pieces with TSOL patterned paper collection, one behind the SMILE sentiment and one just below on the inside. I also die cut and impressed with the Envelope Liner Die Set the Kiwi CS piece. I stamp my sentiment on Powder Sugar CS from the Youare2kind stamp set which is my final layer for the inside.

I absolutely love this card base along with the new Center Step-Up Die set. These are completely unique card bases from the usual A2 size rectangle CB. They make your cards centerpieces! Make certain to pick yours up today and #stampsoflife. Looking forward to seeing your creations!
