Finally, A New Project!!!

Sorry for the delay but I've finally gotten well enough to complete a new, simple project. These "Double Scraplings" were very fun to make and you'll find that they are easy to duplicate. What is a "Double Scrapling", you ask?  Well, a "Double Scrapling" is what you get when using an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of card stock to make 2 - 4" x 4" square cards. It leaves a larger scrap of card stock measuring 2 1/2" x 8 1/2". A "Scrapling" is when you cut that scrap in half at 1 1/4" x 8 1/2" and fold in half giving you to 2 scraplings cards. Mystery solved.

  1. Take a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" Crumb Cake card stock and trim every 2 1/2" on the 11" side to get 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 8 1/2". Keep your left over strip!
  2. Score each strip at 4 1/4" and fold in half to get your card base.
  3. Take a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" Whisper White card stock and random stamp with flower stamp over entire sheet using Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist Classic Stampin' Ink Pads.
  4. Trim sheet every 2 1/4" on the 11" side to get 4 strips and then continue to trim those strips every 4". You will end up with 8 card fronts measuring 2 1/4" x 4", but only need 4.
  5. Take your card fronts and run them through your Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
  6. Adhere them to your card bases using Snail Adhesive.
  7. Take your left over strip and stamp the "Thank You" sentiment across it 4 times.
  8. Take your 1" circle punch and punch out each one.
  9. Trim 1 1/2" pieces of white grosgrain ribbon and adhere to the back of each punched circle.
  10. Place a Stampin' Dimensional on the back of each punched circle and adhere onto the card front.
Voila! You're done. Easy peasy!


Paper: Crumb Cake & Whisper White card stock
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral & "Thank You" sentiment from For All You Do
Inks: Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight & Marina Mist Classic Stampin' Ink Pads
Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, 1" Circle Punch & White Grosgrain Ribbon

And last but not least, the matching envie to go with these adorable cards. I created it on PSE last night based on one that I had sketched out on my Stampin' Up! grid paper. It's a little rough, but it's sufficient. Just print, cut along solid lines, trace on desired paper & score on dashed lines.

Thanks for stopping by folks and have a great weekend!
