Pansy Petals Tower Card

October 20, 2021

I told you last week when I shared my grandson’s tower birthday card that the tower card was addictive.

5" x 7" tunnel birthday card

Grandson’s tunnel 13th birthday card….ooops, it should be called a tower card.

 

We’ll, I’ve just finished another one, this time a 60th birthday card for my neighbor, friend and partner in (fun) crime occasionally.

This card will fit a standard A2 (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″) envelope whereas the first card was enlarged to fit a 5″ x 7″ envelope.  Rugged teenager vs. 60 year old gal.  (She’s really a kid at heart.)

I’ve been wanting to used this Biggest Wish stamp set for quite a while and this card was the perfect opportunity.  The hand-stamped image on the card (lower left) is from Stampin’ Up!’s 2012-2013 Annual Catalog.

 

The ‘6’ and ‘0’ and ‘!’ were popped up using the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Cut a small piece of the sticky back sheet, peel off one side of the protective paper and attach as much card stock as needed to cover the numbers.  Run it all through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine going back and forth a few times to ensure that it’s fully cut through.  When you know where you want to position your numbers, remove the bottom sticky paper and attach the numbers to the card.

Tower card and coordinating envelope

Cut a 6″ x 2-1/4″ piece of coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) and attach it to the outside flap of the envelope. I like using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (aka green glue) for that task since it gives you a bit of flexibility in getting the layer positioned properly.   Turn the envelope upside-down and trim away the excess DSP.  Pretty cute isn’t it?

I”m here to help you if you’d like to purchase any of the products used in today’s tower card.  If you haven’t yet tried one you really should.  They’re fun!  I wish I could say I had a how-to video to direct you to, but alas I don’t.  But I do really like this one created by Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Linda Heller.
