Stamperia Atelier Card Folio
Hello, Friends! How is everyone holding up? This Stamperia Atelier Card folio is one of my favorite projects during this time of quarantine. It’s dreamy and soft, and oh, so feminine. I got completely lost in the design process as I blissfully blended paper, ribbon,chipboard, die cuts, flowers and embellishments to make this card.
I’ve used this collection quite a bit, so this card was composed with all the leftover cut panels from those previous projects. You can find one of those projects HERE and a video walk through HERE.
My favorite element on this card is the little vignette I created inside this Reneabouquets Small Hearts Deco Frame. It was such fun to dig through my stash of sewing embellishments! The beautiful butterflies and lace trims on this folio are also from Reneabouquets shop.
Stamperia Atelier Card Folio: A Peek Inside
This is one of my box pocket cards. I have such fun filling these roomy pockets with surprises. The tea bag wallet on the top half of the card is the large (almost 8″ tall) dress form from the collection. To make it, fold the form in half. Then adhere small gussets up near the shoulders where they won’t show. Now you have the perfect spot to tuck in a tea bag and a little spoon.
The bottom pocket holds a tall, skinny bookmark. Can you see the little sewing machine charm peeping out? Wrap a pretty scrap with lace blue seam binding and tie a bow for a pretty finish. Stitch sweet pearl buttons on another scrap to make a lovely button card. Wouldn’t this make a sweet Mother’s Day present?
I went on to make 5 more cards from the remainder of this collection. I’ll share those with you on Throwback Thursday this week. It’s amazing what you can make with the leftovers from a previous project!
I’m keeping all of you in my prayers. Stay positive. Stay creative. Look for the beauty. Listen to good music. Turn off the news. I’ve been sending out little stacks of happy mail here and there as morale boosters. It makes me feel less isolated and takes my mind off myself…which is always a good thing.
How are you passing the time? I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
Thanks for stopping by!
