A Golden Congrats Card


Stampin Up Sushine Wishes Congratulations Card - Mary Fish stampinup

Simple yet elegant defines today’s congrats card.  Even without stamping, the framelits and embellishments used combine to make a sophisticated card that can be used for a number of occasions . . . think birthday, wedding, graduation, job promotion.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


  • A circle was cut using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies from the Very Vanilla panel.
  • Focus on the beauty!  The intricate Lace Doily (new in the Occasions Catalog) provides a beautiful focal point.  Very Vanilla on one side of the doily and Whisper White on the other gives them added value.
  • The doily was adhered to the A2 card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) and the cut panel is placed over it using Foam Adhesive Strips.  This gives an interesting, dimensional look.

  • The sentiment was cropped from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.  It’s cut once using  gold foil sheet and cut an additional 3 x using Very Vanilla cardstock.  Layering gives a boost of added dimension.
  • The Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies contain additional sentiment dies that could easily be interchanged on this card.
