Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Congratulations Card

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Last week I made a very feminine floral congratulations card, and today I’m sharing a more masculine card made with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World bundle and the World of Good specialty designer series paper. The old world map theme of these products are so classic and make such elegant masculine cards. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was also inspired by the current sketch challenge in Sunday Stamps SSC252.

I thought the grid layout would go well with the map themes in the World of Good DSP so I chose one for the background and adhered it to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. I chose another one to make the pattern for the sketch on the left side and adhered the pieces to my card front.

I used the World Map dies to cut the globe out of Misty Moonlight and Crumb Cake and the globe stand from Early Espresso and adhered them together with dots of liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World cling stamp set in Early Espresso on a strip of Misty Moonlight and cut it out with the label die from the Floral Gallery Dies.

I adhered the label to the card front with liquid glue and popped the globe and globe stand on with dimensionals – And the card front is done!!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World stamp set in Early espresso and the globe in Crumb Cake. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of World of Good DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World bundle is perfect for masculine cards and the globe dies are incredibly detailed! It’s the perfect bundle for Congratulations cards – and graduation season is just around the corner!
