Merry Christmas- Gold and White

Hi Stampers!

I apologize for my delay in posting the additional pages for the Bible Memory Verse Album- this week has just gotten completely away from me­ :-)    I will be posting the remaining pages over the next few days- promise!

In the meantime, I have been organizing (or trying to) my craft storage area and decided to create a few cards using some retired stamp sets that were begging for some  “love”  :-)   

This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created using the FMS153 Freshly Made Sketches Challenge along with the Fab Friday 50 Challenge to use Gold and White (plus it is another one of my CCC14 Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge designs ) :-) .   

I decided to heat emboss the images and used a really old embossing pad (before SU! carried Versamark™ ) and I think that it is a bit dry – see what happens when you organize- you find all sorts of things you forgot you had :-)  
Again, if you have not had a chance to check out both sites yet, I would encourage you to do so- great job by all!!

To create this card:

Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the tree image as well as the sentiment using Versamark™ ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.     

Trim a panel of Brushed Gold cardstock and mount onto a Whisper White card base.

Fussy-cut around the tree image and mount onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Trim the sentiment panel and adhere to a Brushed Gold cardstock layer.  Add the 5/8” Gold Satin Ribbon double bow and mount onto the card front.

Add a few Pearls to finish off the card- quick, clean and simple!!

Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled, More Merry Messages (both retired)

Ink: Versamark™ or other clear pigment ink

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Brushed Gold

Accessories:  Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool,  Pearls, 5/8” Gold Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  I will be posting a few more cards in addition to the rest of the Bible Verse Memory Album shortly- hope you have a chance to visit again soon!

This is such a beautiful traditional card. The gold embossing on the tree and the sophisticated bow make this card really stand out in the crowd. TFS.
