I hope you’ve had a great weekend.
It’s obviously turning cold……..our central heating turned itself on this morning!
would like to say a big Thank You to Canadian SU Demonstrator Sandi
MacIver for the inspiration for today’s card.
(Sandi’s website is www.stampinwithsandi.com)
I was flicking through
Pinterest yesterday, and saw a card Sandi had posted October last year
where she had used the Star of Light Stamp set and co-ordinating
Starlight Thinlits Dies.
The card was in Whisper White and Gold Foil,
and had ribbons crossed as if wrapping a present.
For the layer
underneath, Sandi had used four pieces of Whisper White Cardstock (CS)
that she had dry embossed using two different patterned embossing
She also added two smaller Gold Foil
stars in the top right hand section, as well as a gold heat embossed sentiment
in the bottom right hand corner.
The card was really beautiful!
Then I chose some Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon to wrap
around the top two layers.
thought the “wrapped” sentiment, which is from the Snowflake Sentiments
Stamp Set, fitted in nicely with the wrapped card!
I stamped it on a
piece of Whisper White CS using Real Red Ink, and punched it out using
the Pretty Label Punch.
I also punched another Pretty Label using a
scrap of Real Red CS, which I cut in half horizontally.
Then I adhered both pieces to the back of the sentiment, allowing a little bit appearing above and
below the sentiment.
I added three Rhinestones randomly around the
sentiment, and then added it to the card front using Dimensionals.
my card needed a bit more red in the overall desgn, and decided to fussy cut six of the
little quilted stars from a red design from the same DSP pack.
don’t like fussy cutting, you could die cut some of the little stars
that come in the co-ordinating Quilt Builder Framelits Dies.
my fussy cut stars to the top layer using Tombow, and then added a Rhinstone in the
I adhered this to the Garden Green CS card base, and then
adhered a layer of Whisper White CS inside the card.
I’m really pleased with this card and hope you like it, too! Many thanks for the inspiration, Sandi!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
