Tabs for Everything - Congratulations

Just a quick post with two cards using the NEW stamp set Tabs for Everything. This set is ideal for use with the NEW Love Today Planner, and actually comes in BUNDLE (at 10% OFF) with the NEW Circle Tab Punch, but I don't have either of those other products yet...so I was inspired by our most recent demonstrator magazine* (Stampin' Success) to make a couple of stand alone cards with the set.

There are 53 images in this stamp set--though they are each rather small (see stamp set below), so they can fit on the coordinating Circle Tab Punch. To keep the "white space" a little more proportionate, I cut my card size down to a 3-1/2" x 5" foldover. I started by cutting my letter-sized card stock sheet to 7" x 10", to get two foldover cards. To do that, I first cut to get 7" from the 8-1/2" side, which left me a strip of 1-1/2" x 11". I then cut that piece in half, to 3/4" x 11", and then trimmed each piece to only 9" long, to get the two belly bands for the envelopes. Then I cut one inch off the 11" side of my sheet to get a 7" x 10" sheet. I scored along the 7" side at 3-1/2" and then cut the 10" side to 5", so I ended up with (2) pre-scored foldover 3-1/2" x 5" cards.

Ah, yes, the envelopes! Those are made with coordinating card stock, using the Envelope Punch Board. This is a card that might go on or in a gift box, or be handed directly to the recipient as a gift itself--by enclosing a gift card! If I decide to mail it, the entire thing will fit into a Whisper White Medium Envelope. For each envelope, you'll need a 7-1/4" square piece of card stock, which leaves plenty of scrap for strips of colored card stock to use across your cards (mine are 1" x 5").

*So, if you've read this far, let me tell you a little bit about how I got this stamp set, and a Stampin' Up! magazine, for FREE! As a demonstrator, I get the Stampin' Success full-color magazine in my mailbox every quarter. I also get up-to-date articles in a WEEKLY email called Succeed Weekly, which always features new project samples, and sometimes even class instructions! As for the stamp set, I went to a demonstrator event called OnStage in April, and this was one of FOUR stamp sets (among other goodies) I went home with for FREE! There are way more perks than this if you Become a Demonstrator, including at least 20% OFF all commissionable merchandise, PLUS qualifying for Stampin' Rewards on your personal orders. There's no obligation, the Starter Kit is completely customizable, and you get to pick up to $125 in merchandise for only $99 + tax (no shipping). Give it some thought...it's a pretty sweet deal, even if you just get a bunch of new product at a great discount.
