Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Emboss the Basic Black cardstock with the Let’s Celebrate Embossing folder in the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I placed the cardstock so that I embossed the “congratulations” word towards the top edge so that it is visible to coordinate with the stamped sentiment.
  4. Adhere the Fine Shimmer paper onto the Basic Black embossed cardstock, they overlap by ¾” of an inch.
  5. Wrap the Gold & Vanilla Ribbon around the layers and adhere the ends onto the backside. 
  6. Adhere these layers onto the Basic White Thick card base.
  7. Stamp the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad onto the Basic White cardstock layer.
  8. Use Dimensionals to adhere the stamped sentiment layer onto the card front.
  9. Place 4 black Classic Matte Dots in the four corners of the sentiment layer.
  10. Stamp and decorate the inside.
  11. Decorate your envelope.
  12. So cute! Now send it to someone special.
