So Happy for You Card in Gold

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As I am busy cutting cardstock, die cutting and preparing gifts for my upcoming retreat, I thought I would share a special card with you. It comes from my fellow demonstrator and friend Lisa. I will also be sharing the dimensions and step by step instructions to make Lisa’s card.

Lisa is using the Colors and Contour Stamp set with gold embossing … so elegant.


  • Card Base: Very Vanilla Thick – 1 pc. 4 1/4 x 11. Score at 5 1/2.
  • Cardstock #2: Very Vanilla – 4 x 5 1/4 for embossed layer,  3 x 5 for die cutting scalloped rectangle, and 4 x 4 to punch ovals.
  • Ribbon: (2) 5 1/2 – 6 inches

Instructions :

  • Score Thick Very Vanilla at 5 1/2. Fold and burnish.
  • Emboss large Very Vanilla piece with embossing folder.
  • Die cut scalloped rectangle.
  • Stamp image in VersaMark on scalloped rectangle; stamp sentiment in VersaMark on 4 x 4 piece. 
  • Heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Punch sentiment with scalloped oval.
  • Adhere these embossed pieces to large layer about 1 inch from the bottom.
  • Take one piece of ribbon and stretch across beneath scalloped pieces. Adhere two ends on back with adhesive.
  • Tie bow with other piece of ribbon and attach as shown with a glue dot.
  • Adhere this entire piece to card front.
  • Attach three gold Festive Pearls.
  • Finish inside as desired.

I hope you enjoyed Lisa’s beautiful card in vanilla and gold as much as I did. I appreciate you taking time out of your weekend to join me today.

Have an inspirational and fun day ~
