July 2023 Card Club Alternative With Nature's Prints

Here's is my last alternative card for my July 2023 Online Card Club. Did you miss my first alternative? You can see it HERE. When I make my alternatives, I use the supplies that come in the card club to show how to change the club cards up a bit.

With a $39.50 monthly subscription to my Monthly Online Card Club, members get $21-$27 worth of Stampin' Up! product (DSP, ribbon, embellishments, etc), card kits to make 2 of each of the 3 cards I make every month, exclusive video tutorial, pdf for cards, & shipping. You'll also have the option to add-on either the stamp set or bundle that is featured that month to your monthly subscription.

Exclusive for Current Card Club Members...When You Choose to Add-On Either the Featured Stamp Set or Bundle, I'll Pay the Shipping & Sales Tax For You!

That's a Savings of 18%!

The Earthen Textures Bundle is Featured This Month!

For today's card, I chose to use the Nature's Prints Stamp Set, along with its coordinating dies, Natural Prints. I've been using this stamp set & dies A LOT! I've actually only owned them for a few months now, and I don't know why I waited so long to get them. There is so much you can make with them!

The two non-stamped die-cuts on the right side of the card were made with dies in the Earthen Textures Dies, which is part of the bundle featured in club this month. I do all of the die-cutting for non-stamped die-cuts for my card club members, along with the embossing, and these die-cuts were in the club card kit I chose to use. Speaking of embossing, the embossing along the bottom of the Crumb Cake layer was done with one of the dies in the Earthen Textures Dies. It's a special die that embosses instead of cutting.

My June 2023 Card Club actually features ALL of the products in the Earthen Elegance Suite from the Stampin' Up! 2023-2024 Annual Catalog. The Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper (DSP) is one of the things in this gorgeous suite, along with the Earthen Textures Bundle. My Card Club members will get a 1/2 pack of this DSP, so they'll have some leftover after they make their six club cards. Having a 1/2 pack of the DSP enables my club members to choose whichever paper design they want to use, too...they don't have to use the one I used.

They also get a full roll of the Natural Wavy Trim from the suite. This trim is so unique, and I LOVE how it looks on my cards. I think it makes the perfect accent for my greeting label.

The last thing my club members get this month is the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots. This embellishment pack includes gold, copper, & bronze dots, and each color comes in two sizes. I used one large and two small bronze dots on this card.

This time, I decided to use a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock on the inside of my card. I thought it coordinated with the outside of the card better than Very Vanilla. I stamped one of the Nature's Prints images from the outside of the card across the bottom of the piece using Pecan Pie ink.

Dimensions (CS = Cardstock):
  • Pretty Peacock CS:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
    • 4" x 2-1/4" (DSP mat)
    • 1-1/4" x 3-1/2" (fern-like die-cut)
  • Copper Clay CS:  2-3/4" x 4-1/4" (fan-like die-cut)
  • Crumb Cake CS:  (2) 4" x 5-1/4" (outside & inside layers)
    • 2-3/4" x 4" (greeting)
  • Very Vanilla CS:  3" x 5-1/2" (stamped foliage die-cuts)
  • Earthen Elegance DSP:  4" x 2"
  • Natural Wavy Trim:  4"
  • Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots:  1 large & 2 small bronze dots
