Hello my fellow scrappers,
Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share another project for the month. I saw this card on Dawn's site and fell in love with it. I love cards that are different and this card can be made for so many different occasions. I made it for a friend's birthday.
It starts off with card stock measured at 5 1/2" x 11". You need to cut 4 each of layers of colors of your choice, the card stock, I used blue, for the layers, I used white, measured at 2 1/8" x 4", yellow, measured at 2 3/8" x 4 1/4" and black, measured at 2 1/2" x 4 3/8".
The base of the card, score it on the landscape side, (the 11" side,) at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", and 8 1/4". Fold the card in half and put a pencil mark at the bottom of the score line to use as a guide for punching a border. I used a scallop border. Then you can fold the card, mountain and valley folds. On the bottom, the decorative label punch was used to create "feet" for the card to stand.
Then you decorate the top layer of each panel and adhere them together and then to the base and you have this darling card. I just love it. "Thanks Dawn" :)
The envelope was made on the envelope punch board, starting out with a piece of card stock measured at 9 1/4" x 9 1/4", the first score will be at 4 3/8" then you just score each corner from there. I also rounded off the corners. I stamped a cupcake and a sentiment on the envelope.
Well, there you have it, a sweet card and envelope to match. Thanks for stopping by and thanks Sheila for having me for another month :)

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to show you my project for this month. I decided that I haven't been good at posting pictures of the process of my projects, so I figured that I would show you how I do my 3 step stamping. I'm sure most of you know how to do it, but, I just wanted to show how I do it.
I used The Sweet Life stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. The roses are gorgeous, they have dies so that you can cut them out using a cuttlebug or a Big Shot, but I decided that I would just stamp. Another stamp set I used is Butterfly Basics from Stampin' Up. I used the background stamp to cover the base of the card to give it texture. I used Lavender Lace for that. The sentiment, the butterfly and the fern are also from Butterfly Basics. I stamped the butterfly twice with Soft Suede. The first one was stamped on the card, then the second one was cut out and adhered to the stamped image. I folded the wings up a little to give it dimension. I just inked the top of the fern with Pear Pizzazz to stamp it at the bottom.
The inks I used for the rose are Lavender Lace, Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss all from Stampin' Up. The trick is to use 3 of the same color family, light, medium, dark. Or you could use the darkest ink and stamp off between layers.
Here are the three stamps.
The first step, I used the lightest color, Lavender Lace for the base stamp.
The second step, the medium color, Perfect Plum was used. Now the rose comes to life.
The third and final step, I used the darkest color, Blackberry Bliss.
Isn't it pretty? For the leaves, it's two steps, the first color, I used Pear Pizzazz, which is green ,and for the layer, I used Soft Suede, which is brown.
That's my project :) I hope you find it useful if you are new to three step stamping. Thanks Sheila for having me and I hope you give this a try.
