Hi crafty friends,
I know I’m flooding your in-box with my cards this week, but I’ll get back to posting once or twice per week. Today’s card is a popular card layout. It involves a small piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) a sentiment and either another piece of coordinating paper. Make sure you scroll past my Shopping List to get the card measurements and other details.
It was difficult to photograph today’s card because of the shiny gold foil metallic cardstock. Trust me, I tried countless angles and this was the best photo of the bunch. It really is a pretty card in real life.
These are the items I used to make this card, just click on any of the pictures on my Shopping List or on my signature at the end of this post and you’ll be redirected to my 24/7 Online Store.

CARD MEASUREMENTS & TIPS
- Shaded Spruce cardstock – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
- Plaid Tidings DSP – 5 1/4″ X 1 3/4″
- Gold Foil Cardstock – 5 1/4″ X 2 1/4″ (use the Evergreen Forrest 3 D Embossing Folder to emboss)
- Small scrap pieces of white cardstock to stamp on and a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock to die cut a circle using the Stitched Shapes dies.
Tip 1 -The gold metallic ribbon in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack frays or unravels quite easily so I chose to tie a knot in it to prevent it from fraying any further, but sometimes I prefer the “frayed look.”
Tip 2 – Not really a tip but instead an option. I used the Delicata Gold ink pad (retired) to stamp my sentiment on the Whisper White cardstock circle, but I believe a better choice would have been to stamp the sentiment in either the Shaded Spruce ink pad or the Cherry Cobbler ink pad. (I listed both of them in my Shopping List for your ease in shopping.) The sheet of DSP I used has both of these colors, so if would coordinate it beautifully. That’s my favorite thing about using Stampin’ Up! products, they ALL coordinate. It makes for easy and beautiful crafting.
Do you sometimes create a card and you’re happy with the results and then the next day you start to reconstruct it in your mind in a “better way?” Or, you start to say to yourself, I should have done this or that? I do that all the time!!! Case in point – “I shoulda used Shaded Spruce or Cherry Cobbler ink instead of Delicata Gold to stamp the sentiment.”
If you’re still reading, thank you! I hope you have a lovely holiday!
