  • NEW!  The A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4″) card base was created with Thick Very Vanilla card stock, a new product in the upcoming annual catalog.  It provides a strong card base and blends seamlessly with regular Very Vanilla card stock.
  • A mat cut 1/4″ smaller in Shimmery White card stock and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals adds subtle sparkle.

  • Splattering of Gold! The background image is from Timeless Textures stamp set.  It’s stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  With the customer favorite Gorgeous Grunge retiring (see what’s retiring and on sale here), Timeless Textures is a “go-to” for unique background images.  Timeless Textures will be continued in the new annual catalog.

  • Gold rush!  The sentiment is also embossed in gold.
  • A 1/2″ strip of gold foil sheet gives this card even more polish.

  • The bloom is stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder on Shimmery White card stock. Shimmery White card stock is perfect for watercoloring the embossed image.
  • Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink along with an Aqua Painter made coloring a snap!
  • Stampin’ Up! Paper Snips were used to cut out the flower.

  1. The flower is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals as well. It adds a 3-D effect and some shadowing that really adds to the WOW!

  2. Judy L. Tuttle

    Ok, maybe a dumb question. But did you pop the flower up also or place it flat on the foil stripe? I never know how much to pop! haha!

  3. I think it might be time ti haul out the gold embossing powder again. I’d forgotten how much I like the look of it until I saw this card. Thanks for the memories, Mary!

  4. Gorgeous!! This is one of my favorite stamp sets. I love the floral image as well as the font of the sentiments!
