Beautiful Thistle in Gold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy Friday! Today I’d like to share my Beautiful Thistle in Gold card with you. The Beautiful Thistle bundle is on the retirement list and I’m saddened that it is leaving, so I’ve been sharing my creations with you.

This design is stunning is Gold yet pretty easy to recreate … I will share the dimensions and instructions with you along with the links to the products used.

Lets take a look …

You will begin with Very Vanilla cardstock; a 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ sheet scored at 4-1/4″ and folded. You will also need a piece to stamp and emboss with the Gold Embossing powder, plus a piece for your greeting.

Cut a piece of the Gold Foil sheet to 4″ x 5-1/4″ … then you can die cut a circle from the center as a “mat” to back your greeting. No need to worry about that hole in the middle of your Gold Foil sheet as it will be the “mat” behind the stunning “Naturally Gilded” Specialty Designer Paper … cut this to 5″ x 3-3/4″.

You can attach your Naturally Gilded piece to the Gold mat. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, attach your card front assembly to the front of your card base.

Your next step is to stamp the thistle and your greeting onto a piece of Very Vanilla using your VersaMark pad, sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder, tap off excess powder and heat emboss. You can now die cut your thistle and using the circle from the Stylish Shapes dies.

While you are die cutting, die cut a piece of Vellum cardstock using the Scallop Contours dies. Attach your thistle and greeting to this piece of vellum … it allows the pattern to show through somewhat but will highlight your flower and greeting.

Once you have your thistle assembly completed, you can attach it to the front of your card … place your Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals behind your thistle and greeting so they will not show through

Complete your card by embellishing with the Brushed Brass Butterflies… the coordinate beautifully with the Naturally Gilded Designer paper and our thistle.

Thank you for stopping by and hanging out with me today.

Have a beautiful day ~
