I used the Christmas Bauble and Endless Wishes stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create a gold and Very Vanilla card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #163.
I started by embossing a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder, then I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Brushed Gold card stock. I wrapped a strand of Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the embossed panel and I adhered it with SNAIL.
I stamped the Christmas Bauble image in VersaMark Ink on a Very Vanilla panel, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I colored a few touches on the ornament with my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers, then cut the image out with one of the dies from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits die set. I adhered the panel to a panel of Brushed Gold card stock that I’d punched with the Project Life Corner Punch, then to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped and embossed the image from the Christmas Bauble stamp set a second time on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, then colored the holly with my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. I snipped out the holly leaves with my Paper Snips, then adhered them with SNAIL to the card front.
I stamped the sentiment from the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink and embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I punched the sentiment out with the Small Oval Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to a tag that I’d cut from Brushed Gold card stock with one of the dies from the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies.
I adhered anther strand of the Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the panel and adhered it with SNAIL, then tied a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot over the ribbon. I tucked the sentiment tag under the bow and adhered it with SNAIL. Then I adhered the layered panel to a Very Vanilla card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Bright & Beautiful stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a Very Vanilla panel and heat embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder to finish the inside of the card.
