PPA186- Merry Christmas Golden Ornaments
I wanted to create a card using this week’s Pals Paper Arts PPA186 Colors and the first Christmas card for 2014 (I signed up again for the Splitcoaststampers’ Christmas CCC14 Card Challenge). Last year I still did not get to mail all of the cards that I wanted to mail- will try again this year :-)
I hope you will find the time to stop by the both sites to check out all of the designs- great inspiration by all!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ along with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Cut the ornament die cuts from the Gold Foil Paper and attach to a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Carefully hand cut around the ornaments and add the Gold cord.
Stamp the sentiment using Island Indigo Classic Ink – trim and cut the banner points using the Hexagon Punch. Add the Island Indigo banners (punched from the new SAB Banner Punch) and mount to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® .
Add the triple Satin Ribbon Bow (from my stash) tucking the ends behind the panel and mount the ornaments to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals® (adhering the Gold cord behind the panel).
To finish off the card, mount the entire panel to the Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp Sets: Christmas Greetings
Ink: Island Indigo
Paper: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Gold Foil
