Hello, I hope you are well.
Today’s card was inspired by one shown in the Stampin’ Up! August to December 2020 mini catalogue (on page 40 if you want to take a look). Stampin’ Up! have so many talented and creative people involved in creating the products and showing us how to use them so the catalogue is always a great place to get inspiration. Here’s my take on the card in question….
The one in the catalogue was green and gold and had a different sentiment and I really like both versions.
I used Pacific Point card for my base, which measures 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I then added a layer of Whisper White measuring 10 x 14 cm and cut another piece of Pacific Point card to 9.5 x 13.5 cm ready for stamping.
I stamped the baubles from the Ornamental Envelopes 3 times across the Pacific Point card with Versamark ink and allowed it to dry. This gives a lovely watermark effect and is a bit more subtle than using tone on tone ink and card.
I also stamped the baubles once with Versamark onto Whisper White card, added Silver Stampin’ Emboss powder and heat set it. I allowed this to cool before cutting out the baubles with the matching die from the Envelope Dies set. I then added them to the card front, some with glue and others with Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them up.
I stamped the sentiment from the Tree Angle stamp set with Pacific Point ink onto Whisper White card and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die. The die that fit the length of this sentiment was too wide so I cut it with the die twice as shown below…
I added this to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals too.
I then set about decorating the envelope and used the Envelope Dies to create a liner for my envelope from Snowflake Splendour designer series paper…
I also used one of the dies to cut a feature on the envelope flap so you can glimpse the other side of the paper…
The final touch was to add a couple of stamped images from Ornamental Envelopes on the front of the envelope with Pacific Point ink.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card and will take another look at your Stampin’ Up! catalogues for some cardmaking inspiration.
