I used the Artistically Inked Bundle and the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog to create this elegant birthday card. When my order arrived from Stampin’ Up! the first thing I did was pull out this bundle and embossing folder and run them through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine! The detail is amazing. Enjoy!
The Paper Cuts
- Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4′′ x 11′′ scored at 5 1/2′′ (card base)
- Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel (dry embossing) and 4″ x 1/2″ (sentiment)
- Gold Foil Sheets: 4″ x 8″ (die cutting) and 4″ x 5/8″ (sentiment layer)
With VersaMark Ink I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set onto the Basic White strip, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tapped off the excess, and melted the powder with the Heat Tool. I repeated the process for the “Best Wishes” sentiment on the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.
I placed the Basic White panel into the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine (folded end first). I also cut two of the large floral die from Gold Foil Sheet.
To assemble the card, I adhered the sentiment strip to the Gold Foil strip with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it near the bottom of the embossed panel. I adhered the embossed panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tip: the pokey end of the Take Your Pick Tool makes quick work of removing the paper from the back of dimensionals.
I cut one of the floral die cuts in half to use on the inside of the card and on the envelope. To adhere the floral die cuts in place I dipped 1/8th of a Stampin’ Sponge into a dollop of liquid glue that I squeezed onto my Silicone Craft Mat and then applied it to the back of the detailed die cut. Tip: put a binder clip on the narrow end of the sponge wedge as a handle and keep in a small rubbermaid container for repeated use. I used my Paper Snips to trim any excess die cut away from the edges.
For the final embellishment I adhered three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the die cut image on the front of the card. So pretty and so simple!
