SUO86 Last Minute Gold Snowflake Card with Gift Tag :-)
It’s time for the new SUO86 SU-Only Challenge and the theme for this challenge is “Last Minute Cards and Gifts”.
I decided to create a quick, clean and simple (CAS) card along with a matching tag using some of the new Gold Foil Paper and Heat Embossing.
Again, I hope you will find some time during this busy holiday season to check out the SU-Only Challenge site and the rest of the Design Team’s creations- they have great ideas for the last minute card or gift!
De-static three pieces of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy® and using Versamark™ ink. Stamp the snowflake image from Best of Snow twice (leaving room for the die cut) onto one of the pieces, the sentiment from Greetings of the Season onto the other near the bottom right and the sentiment from More Merry Messages onto the third piece. .
Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder to all of the images and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Once cooled, use the Big Shot™ with the Festive Flurry Framelits™ to cut out the snowflake images (I was thrilled to see that second to the smallest die would fit this snowflake) and use the second to the largest die to cut two additional snowflakes out of Gold Foil paper.
Use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score the Gold Foil snowflakes and fold at the scores to create dimension.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Chalk Tag Framelit™ to cut a tag out of Whisper White cardstock. Mount the tag onto a piece of Gold Foil Paper and trim the paper by hand to match the tag corners.
Adhere the embossed snowflake to the scored Gold Foil snowflake. Mount the snowflake onto the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals® as well as the sentiment. Add a Pearl to the snowflake and the retired Gold Cord to finish off the tag.
Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to frame the snowflake for the card, mount this onto a piece of Gold Foil Paper and add to the layer with the Peace on Earth embossed sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Mount this to another layer of Gold Foil paper and onto the Whisper White card base.
Add the snowflake to the center using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the Pearl to the center to finish off the card.
