ONLINE CLASS & VIDEO: How to make laser cut “wow” cards with Bird Ballad and Paper Pumpkin


This class tutorial is for a set of 4 all occasion lace die cut cards created with the May 2019 “Hugs from Shelli” Paper Pumpkin kit and the new Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin. I’ll show you how I altered this beautiful kit to create these gorgeous cards. The laser-cut cards create an incredible “wow” factor, and they even come with scalloped edge matching vanilla envelopes.

I added some finishing touches with the Perennial Flower Punch and the Clear Faceted Gems. I’ll show you how to customize the gems so you can coordinate them with any project.

Even though the refills to this kit have sold out, you can still make these beauties by using these suggested substitutions from the Stampin’ Up Bird Ballad Suite.

Purchase products in this suite individually, or bundle and save.

This is where I show you how to create the projects as they come in the box. Or more importantly, what “not to do” when creating your kit. So much fun, surprises, and prizes opening this box.
