An elegant Christmas card is what I created, inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Very Vanilla, Metallic Gold and Basic Black. I used the bundle with the Festive Flower Builder Punch and the Reason for the Season Stamp set. With the Festive Flower Builder Punch you can create beautiful Poinsettias like the one I created from Vellum paper.
I stamped Vellum paper with Gold Encore ink. For the center of the flower I used retired embellishment Frosted Finishes from last year’s Holiday Catalog. Behind the flower I used Gold trim cording. The corners of the layers (Very Black, Gold Foil) of the card I punched with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on a 1-1/2″ x 4″ strip of Very Vanilla then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.
Hop on over to HSS to be inspired by the very talented design team.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
