This fancy fold looks a bit like a gate fold when it is closed but it's really a Z fold instead! It's made on a card base of pearlescent gold so that it sparkles for the Christmas season and topped with the new winter collection 2014 paper.! I heat embossed the star using the new Snowflake Stars stamp set and cut it out using the new Splendorous Stard Die.then scored it on the back so that it would pop up with dimension. I had to be careful while doing this so as not to damage the embossing. I filled the back of the star with a bit of hot glue so that it would keep the shape. If it were left hollow, it would be smooshed in the mail.e ODBD Vintage Flourish pattern Die and the ODBD Vintage Labels Die.. I added 1/4 inch dimensional foam to the back side of this stack of die cuts and attached it to the left flap of the card. I went to work adding the poinsettias and swirl foliage with the ODBD Peaceful Poinsettias dies and the ODBD Fancy Foliage dies. I must say that these two dies are staples for the Holiday Season since I can use any type of Papers to create so many colors of flowers. It's more versatile than using mulberry flowers. Here I have used pearlescent gold vellum and pearlescent mallard green card stock for the floral work. This look is very pretty indeed!!! The transparency of the flowers is quite elegant!
For the inside, I stamped the sentiment on cream card stock and embossed with gold embossing powder. Adding another flower in the corner finished everything off nicely. For the center of the Z panel, I used the star paper from the stack and sponged the edges to blend it with the swirl paper. It's a nice contrast and adds a bit more interest. This card is an A2 size when closed.
This next card measures a full 5x7 inches. I started with a royal blue card stock as the base and added two die cut panels from the Vintage Flourish Pattern dies which I cut in a white pearlescent card stock. I used two of the new dies for the top layer. Again I cut the Flourished Star Pattern with white pearlescent card stock and added pearls. The next layer was also cut with the same die using the royal blue card stock. Finally, the top layer was stamped using the Silk Stars Stamp Set. I used a blue dye based ink to load the stamp and then I used a darker blue marker to add the shadows to the fully inked stamp. After I stamped the image, I used a mid tone marker the blend everything together. I took another blue marker and added the lines down the center of each star point. This gave me a realistic looking dimensional star which is flat in reality. I cut this out using the Splendorous Stars Dies and topped it off with a large half pearl. A bit of ribbon across the bottom with the sentiment (cut with the Ornate Borders and Flower Dies) finishes off the front.
On the inside, I layered blue and white card stock with die cuts from the Beautiful Borders and Vintage Labels Dies. I used sentiments from the new Come Let Us Adore Him Stamp Set.
These are products from the new release which I used.
