Hello Stampin’ Friends,
A very good morning to you! As promised, today’s card share is a sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday catalog. My card features the Bright & Beautiful stamp set and Star’s Framelit Bundle. More about that later …
I began with the Soft Sky cardstock and wanted to team it up with Silver. First is the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in Silver … I love the way the Soft Sky peaks through the vellum.
I used silver embossing powder on the Soft Sky … which seems to reflect off the silver and create the beautiful tones you see on the card. The Silver Glimmer paper highlights the star and just calls out… “Holiday”. I can’t wait … I’m eagerly getting “holiday” cards & projects ready for my retreat!
The greeting is included in the set, and is stamped in Soft Sky. The banner was trimmed by hand and given a bit of a curl to create some added dimension to the card.
Your Stampin’ Tip for today is the use of Glue Dots: They are used behind the silver on the vellum to adhere it to the cardstock, yet hid it from the eye. It is also the best adhesive for attaching cardstock to the Glimmer Paper!
This beautiful stamp set “Bright & Beautiful” and the Star’s Framelit Dies are currently on sale and bundled for you! You can have this in your hands now at a 15% discount or Free with the purchase of a Big Shot. Click here for more details
There are other bundle options for you, but I wanted to share the “Star’s Bundle” with you because you can get it now, before the catalog is released on the 28th. SHOP NOW
