I promised to follow up with a bit more information about how the projects I featured during the Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop are created. This first post features the Christmas card in Navy and Gold.
Navy and Gold are a favorite of mine due to my time in the US Navy and that of my husband (retired USN), my brother (retired USN), my daughter (USN Vet), my son (active duty USN), and my nephew (active duty USN). Navy and Gold seem to be in our DNA.
This card begins with a card base of Whisper White Thick cardstock. Adhered to the card front is a piece of Gold Glimmer paper. A piece of Night of Navy cardstock was randomly stamped with the snowflakes from the Snow Flurry stamp set using Versamark ink, covered with White Stampin' Emboss powder, and the embossing powder melted with the Heat Tool. (Be sure to swipe the cardstock with the Embossing Buddy before stamping to cut down on stray embossing powder.)
A piece of Gold Glimmer paper was die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits and adhered near the lower right corner of the embossed Night of Navy cardstock using Mini Glue Dots. A length of Whisper White 5/8" Organza ribbon was wrapped around the Night of Navy cardstock so that the ribbon lays across the center of the die cut Gold Glimmer paper and knotted at the left side. The Night of Navy cardstock was adhered to the center of the Gold Glimmer paper on the card base with Mini Glue Dots. A piece of Whisper White cardstock was stamped with the Christmas greeting using Night of Navy ink, die cut with the next smaller size of Lots of Labels Framelits, and adhered at the center of the Gold Glimmer paper label with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The inside sentiment area of the card was randomly stamped with the two smallest snowflakes using Night of Navy ink. The Christmas sentiment was stamped at the upper center, also using Night of Navy ink. A piece of Night of Navy cardstock was adhered along the bottom edge and a slightly narrower piece of Gold Glimmer paper was adhered along the center of the Night of Navy cardstock strip using Mini Glue Dots.
The two smaller snowflakes were randomly stamped along the front left edge of the Medium Whisper White Envelope.
