It was a real fiasco here while trying to make this card. I am not kidding. I was so frustrated by the end. I know, I know, you are thinking…. this isn’t a very good advertisement for this framelit/stamp set.
But I have always promised you that I would be honest. I’m no sell out. I will always tell you the truth over just selling to you. That said if you want to WOW a recipient this bundle is it!
When I saw this card in the 2018 Occasions Catalog my heart went pitter patter. I love every thing 3D, I love every thing pop up and fun. I LOVE THIS CARD.
Now I am faced with telling you, it’s not easy to make. I highly recommend you drink 1 – 2 glasses of wine prior to even trying to make this card. Or take an extra valium, or maybe invest in a 30 minute meditation session. (see your doctor before taking any of my advice)
It will totally try your patience.
However after the first one, it does get easier, and after the second if no one has been hurt, your third one is way easier.
So I guess what it boils down to, is you may only want to add this to your wish list if you are willing to put in the time to make this amazing card.
This is not a “quick and easy” framelit. But it was SUPER worth the results. I ended up with some great cards that I am going to be so excited to give to some fantastic people in my life.

Wendy – You did a great job! I was equally frustrated with this set – posted on the Demo FB page certain I was doing something wrong. I vented a little. Shame on me. Once I figured out an easier way to do it (note: easier, not easy!), I went back to post my solution only to find the thread deleted. I had the worst trouble with the fold for the center of the card, to get it to fold flat. I eventually used 8-1/2 x 5 for the centerpiece and trimmed it down to the 8” length AFTER getting it all cut and manipulated. I can’t imagine trying to use the Thick Cardstock! The normal weight cs wrinkles too. Brandi replied in my thread that this was why the second layer was put on the trestles. You’re right. She’s cool as a cucumber and makes it look pretty easy.
