My Card features the NEW Pinecone Background stamp and a sentiment from an older set called, Poinsettia Greetings. Here's how I created it.
 
  • Stamp the Pinecone Background onto a piece of red card stock using embossing ink and emboss with gold embossing powder. 
  • Ink blend the edges of the panel with red and dark brown ink. The brown adds the richness but make sure to use a very light hand and only blend around the outer edges. 
  • Emboss the "Season Greetings" sentiment from the Poinsettia Greetings stamp set onto a strip of vellum and wrap around red panel and attach from the back.
  • The Gold Mat was created by embossing the edges of a piece of white card stock. You only need to emboss approx 1/2" around the card stock as only the very outer edges will show. This allows for a perfect match ing the golds.
  • Assemble Card. I used foam tape to pop up panel onto the card base (this step is optional).
  •  For embellishment I added a few gold sequins. 
 
I love the elegance of the design but this could easily be a mass produced card for the holidays.

A2 Top Fold Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2")

PRODUCT LINKS BELOW CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU

STAMPtember® is here and I'm super excited to share that Gina K. Designs is back this year with another beautiful collaboration set.  This set is called, "Shimmering Snowflakes" and is an EXCLUSIVE for this event!  This set is available as a stand alone stamp set or with a coordinating die set.  Both options can be found HERE.
 
Remember...once it's gone, it's gone!!

If you are new to STAMPtember these are exclusive sets and have limited quantities and are ONLY available while supplies last at Simon Says Stamp.  Gina K. Designs will NOT be carrying this set and never will. 
 
 
 
 --------------
 
I have two cards that I created to share with you!
 
For my first card I started with a panel of Red Velvet card stock and randomly stamped two snowflakes from the set and embossed them with gold embossing powder. Next I took Red Velvet and Charcoal Brown ink (very light hand and just the edges with the brown) and ink blended around the edges of the panel. For the sentiment I stamped and embossed it in gold to coordinate and just added a touch of ink blending. The mats were created by taking a panel of layering weight white card stock and taking the embossing ink direct to paper around the edge about a 1/2" in and embossed it with the same gold embossing powder to coordinate perfectly. For embellishment I added a few gold pearls.
 
Card Measurements:
White A2 Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" (5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4")
Gold Mat: 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" - Master Layouts 2 Die Set
Red Velvet Panel: 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" - Master Layouts 2 Die Set
Gold Rectangle Mat: 3 1/4" x 2"
Red Velvet Panel: 3 3/16" x 1 15/16"

For my second card I created a mini slimline card using the Gina K Designs Master Layouts 7 die set. This card is very similar as my first and I started with a piece of Plum Punch card stock. For ink blending I used Plum Punch and Edible Eggplant. To change things up a bit I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a strip of vellum and wrapped it around the panel. For embellishment I added a few 14 Karate sequins with Connect Glue.
 
Card Measurements:
Plum Punch Mini Slimline Card Base: 3 1/4" x 6 1/4"
