May Stamp-A-Stack Card #1

I have my monthly stamp-a-stacks this Thursday, so there won't be much time for me to stamp this week.  Instead, I'm sharing the cards we'll be making.  This card is a combination of these two cards on Lyssa Zwolanek's blog.

Whenever you use an embossing folder with a lot of detail - like the Square Lattice embossing folder - your paper is going to shrink a little due to the embossing.  To get a more "true" size, I embossed a larger piece of card stock and then cut it down to size.  That allowed me to straighten it a little if necessary, too.

Here's what I used:

Pocket Silhouettes
Teeny Tiny Wishes

Soft Suede 5-1/2x8-1/2 Card Base
Baja Breeze 4-1/4x5-1/2 original size cut down to 3-3/4x5
Naturals Ivory 2-1/4x2-1/4 Main Image
So Saffron Scraps for Greeting

Soft Suede Classic Stamp Pad
So Saffron Classic Stamp Pad

SU! Square Lattice Embossing Folder (Summer Mini)
Modern Label Punch
Gold Brads
Paper Piercer & Mat Pack
Stampin' Dimensionals

Stop back by tomorrow to see card #2.

Pin It!
