Story of Elegance
Following are the quick steps to recreate this card.
First, make your cuts:
- Gold Foil – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
- Crumb Cake card stock – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
- Very Vanilla card stock – 3 3/4″ x 5″ and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
- Die cuts:
Add the Crumb Cake card stock panel to the Gold Foil panel, then add to the front of an A2 card base made with Thick Very Vanilla card stock. (Note: An A2 card base is made by cutting an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Thick card stock in half. Score the 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ (half sheet) of card stock at 4 1/4 “.)
Stamp the sentiment and the two floral images onto the center of the Very Vanilla card stock panel using Pecan Pie ink.
Color the floral images using Lemon Lolly Light and Old Olive Light Blends.
Add a knotted bow made with Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged ribbon.
For the inside, I stamped and colored the floral image to match. I also stamped the floral image (not colored) on the back in the opposite corners to create a shadowed image.
To complete the project, stamp and color the flowers on the envelope front and the flap to coordinate.
Finding Your Creative Elegance
In the end, the beauty of paper crafting lies in its ability to connect us with our own creativity and with others. It’s a chance to slow down, unplug, and create something beautiful and meaningful with our own two hands. So why not give it a try today? You never know where your creativity might take you.
