Two Small Strips of Gold Glimmer Paper

Two Small Strips of Gold Glimmer Paper

I’m sure everyone loves sparkle for Christmas greetings so I used two small strips of Gold Glimmer Paper as well as Gold Embossing Powder for this card!  And did you notice that we used a piece of the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper to add to the sparkle?  The gals who attended the Stamp-A-Stack of Christmas Cards were surprised at how quickly it went together and they loved the results!

  1. Cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock at 4-1/4″ x 11” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Use Crumb Cake Classic Ink to stamp verse inside the card base.
  3. Cut a piece of the Gold Ball DSP from All Is Bright DSP at 5-1/2″ x 2″.
    1. Use Snail Adhesive to attach to the centre of the card base.
  4. Cut 2 pieces of Gold Glimmer Paper at 5-1/2″ x 1/2″ – a great way to use those small pieces of glimmer paper!
    1. Use Snail Adhesive to attach 1 piece to each side of the DSP.
  5. Use Versamark Ink to stamp the greeting on Whisper White Cardstock.
    1. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder.
    2. Melt with the Heat Tool.
    3. Use the Stitched Framelit and the Big Shot to cut out the greeting.
    4. Attach the greeting to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now for another look including the envelope:

When you have the Gold Foil-Edged Cards with Envelopes, all you need to add is DSP for a great Happy Birthday greeting card!  And when you use this technique you can get a LOT made in a short time!

  1. Cut DSP at 5″ x 3-3/4″ – use Snail Adhesive to attach to the front of the Gold Foil Edged card.
  2. Use the Happy Birthday framelit and Big Shot to cut greeting from Mossy Meadow cardstock.
  3. Use Liquid Mono Glue to adhere the greeting to the front of the DSP.  Put small drops of the liquid glue on the back of the greeting. When it dries to a clear colour, it will adhere like a glue dot.
  4. This would also be a perfect place to place a piece of adhesive sheet to the back of the cardstock before cutting out the greeting.

This is a list of the products used:

Now you can see the same card base and envelope using a different DSP design.  I think both are beautiful and am looking forward to sending them to my friends for their birthdays!!

And here is one that’s a bit darker but looks equally beautiful with the Happy Birthday cut out of Whisper White cardstock!
