A lot of the ladies all had this lovely Christmas Tree stamp & wanted to recreate one of the cards Naomi had made using the stamp – sorry don’t have a photo of the original.
After coming home & in the middle of preparing tea, I had an idea pop into my head on how to recreate a card that was similar using SU! Lovely as a Tree. I’m really happy with the way it turned out, especially the background & the greeting on the front which I repeated for the inside. Mind you, I sort of come across this from making something I wasn’t going to like…… , but then that happens so much when stamping.
Base Card – Very Vanilla – 8 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ or 8 1/4″ or 21cm x 14.5cm
Layer 1- Gold Glitter Paper – 5″ x 3 3/4″ or 13cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ or 12cm x 8.5cm
Stamp Set – Lovely as a Tree, Petite Pairs
Ink – Versamark
Cardstock – Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Gold Glimmer Paper
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Shimmer Paint, Embossing Powder – Gold, Heat Tool, Sticky Strip
Non- SU – Thread, Paint, Pearls, Gold Paint, Glad Wrap
I then proceed to mix a tiny bit of Gold Paint that I had lying around into a little bit of Frost Shimmer Paint. The amount of Gold Paint I started out with was a about a small pin head & then built from there. I didn’t want too much gold as I just wanted it to blend into the background. I spread this with a piece of Glad Wrap which I just scrunched into a ball.
For my sentiment, I wanted to emboss it in the Gold, but as I previously stated, didn’t like the look after tapping off the excess. I then proceeded to brush all the Embossing Powder off the sentiment & was left with the faint image. It looks a little like stamping off a couple of times with ink, except I’ve done it with Embossing Powder.
I tied the Thread around the bottom of the card twice, tied a bow & adhered to the Gold Glitter Paper with Sticky Strip.
The whole piece was adhered to the Base Card – Very Vanilla with Snail Adhesive.
To finish it off, I adhered Pearls to the top & bottom.
All in all, a very simple, easy card, but am so happy with the final result!
Until next time, have a great day!
One thought on “Merry Christmas Embossed….”
What a stunning card. Love the glitter, especially for Christmas. Your background is really pretty too.
