Hidy Ho Stampers,
Whew…been busy unboxing, sorting, labeling and distributing catalogs to my club members. I will be giving out the rest on Monday (I have Stamp Camp on Saturday, so I won't be home to give them out until Monday). So this is what it looked like when they were delivered…
Mr. UPS man delivered and delivered and delivered!
My mudroom is overflowing!
I'm working as fast as I can!!! :0)
Now for today's card. This is another version of the BLOCK card. I love it.

DIRECTIONS FOR BLOCK CARD:
1. Cut a piece of card stock at 5 1/2" x 10 1/2"
2. With the 10 1/2" side up on the trimmer, score at 3 1/2" and 7"
3. The first fold will be a mountain fold and the second fold will be a valley fold.
4. Close the valley fold and line it up at the top of the trimmer you will be cutting down 1 1/2" along the fold at:
3/8", 1 3/8", 1 5/8", 2 5/8", 2 7/8", 3 7/8", 4 1/8", 5 1/8"
5. Turn 90 degrees and score at the end of the cuts (at on the 1" slits) so they can fold up with the mountain folds. Leave the 1/4" slits as valley folds.
6. Front of card:
a. Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock at 3 3/8" x 5 3/8" and adhere that to the front of the card
b. Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper at 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" and adhere that to the top of the card.
c. Cut a black and an Island Indigo oval (from our Ovals Collection Framelits). Run the Island Indigo oval through the Chevron Embossing Folder. Adhere the two ovals to the card front.
d. Stamp the Ballerina with Memento Ink and color her in with our NEW BLENDABILITIES
e. Tie a fork bow (see my video on YouTube for fork bows) and add it to the bottom of the ovals.
f. Color 3 Rhinestones with the BLENDABILITIES and add them to the tiara! Pop her onto the card front.
7. The inside panels:
a. Cut two pieces of Designer Series Paper 1 7/8" x 5 3/8". Adhere those to the two panels.
8. The building blocks:
a. cut seven pieces of Whisper White card stock at 7/8" x 1 3/8". Stamp your message on these pieces and adhere them to the blocks on your card. Or you can make a mat that extends from one side to the other – 1" x 2 7/8"
