Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! I’m in the middle of getting ready for my Christmas in July Card Class scheduled for this Saturday, and I wanted to share a card I created. I actually cased this from another demo from Australia. I loved the pastel colors of it! Here are the measurements for my card:

  • Card base in Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Blushing Bride cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Whisper White cardstock cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
  • Champagne Foil cut at 3/4″ x 3 3/4″

I wanted the sentiment to really shine, so I started by inking my stamp in Versa Mark and then inking it in Crumb Cake ink so I could heat emboss it with Clear Embossing Powder. I love that we can emboss any of our colors this way! After I did this step I stamped the star/circle image, and then I glued the Champagne Foil strip to the Mint Macaron strip, and then both to the Whisper White layer. I glued that layer to the Blushing Bride layer, and then I added a piece of the Linen Braided Trim over the strips. I glued all of that to the card front. Next I punched out a 2″ circle of Whisper White and stamped the two light bulbs in Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron inks and Crumb Cake ink for the metal end. I punched out a light bulb and end in the Champagne Foil and added it to the circle with dimensionals. I used the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to add the little string lines for the bulbs. I glued the circle to a starburst punched in the same foil and then added it to the card front with dimensionals. I tied a bow in the trim and added that with a Mini Glue Dot. To finish it off, I added some of the Metallic Pearls.

For the inside I stamped the sparkle image in both Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron inks and the sentiments in Crumb Cake ink. I love this color combination! It almost gives it a Victorian feel to it.
