Hi All, welcome to today’s blog post. Today I play with gold foil cardstock with the red poinsettias making a statement piece on both the card and co-ordinating tag. Making these types of sets are so much fun to make and look so good when giving it to a recipient.
See below instruction on how I made this set.
Step 1. Dry emboss with your die cutting machine a white piece of cardstock that with an embossing folder, I have used a 3D embossing folder adding a geometric modern touch to the card.
Step 2. Die cut all the layers that will be needed for the card. I have die cut a scalloped stitched rectangle border cut in gold foil (cut 2 of these as you will need the second one for the tag) and a stitched circle cut out in white cardstock.
Step 3. Mount with the gold foil scalloped border on a gold striped foil designer series paper.
Step 4. The “Merry Christmas” sentiment from the Inspired By Stamping “Festive Greetings” stampset has been heat embossed on a white stitched circle cardstock.
Step 5. To add a pop of colour to the card I have used an Inspired By Stamping paper poinsettia.
Step 1. Die cut a white & a Gold Foil cardstock with any tags of your choosing. Place the gold tag behind the white slightly lower to create another layer to the tag. I used just the bottom portion of the gold foil tag and kept the top half for another project.
Step 2. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder the “Merry Christmas” sentiment on the tag.
Step 3. Place gold glitter washi tape as the first layer on the tag.
Step 4. Using the rectangle scallop border cut out an edge and add to tag as a scalloped trim border. This is another great way in using what you have and not necessarily being the whole die cut piece is needed.
Step 5. Add the poinsettia to the tag and you are done.
This is my last post for the year and I hope you all have a blessed Christmas and look forward to making new creations with Inspired By Stamping goodies as a design team member again. Please also visit my blog – joanneherbert.blogspot.com.au
