Story of Elegance
Following are the quick steps to recreate this card.
First, make your cuts:
- Gold Foil card stock – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
- Basic White card stock – 4 x 5 1/4″ (two pieces)
- Die cuts:
- Die cut the large floral almond plant image and the cocoa plant image from the Nature’s Sweetness Specialty Designer Series Paper using the dies from the Lover & Sweet die set.
- Die cut a stamped sentiment (I used Pecan Pie ink) of your choice using a die from the Stylish Shapes die set.
Emboss one of the Basic White panels, using the Basics 3D embossing folder.
Adhere the embossed panel to the Gold Foil panel and then add to an A2 card base made with Thick Basic White card stock. (Note: An A2 card base is made by cutting an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Thick card stock in half on the long side. Score the 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ (half sheet) of card stock at 4 1/4 “.)
Color the almond plant die cut. I used Old Olive, Petal Pink and Medium Light SU700 Blends. Add the die cuts to the card front, using Dimensionals for the cocoa plant.
Add gold thread behind the sentiment and add to the card front.
Finish the card front by adding gold Pearl Basic jewels.
For the inside, I printed my greeting onto the second the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Basic White panel and added a 1/2″ x 4” strip of the DSP to the bottom of the panel before adhering to the card base.
To complete the project, add DSP to the envelope flap.
