An Elegant Card

Today I wanted to share a card I created featuring the Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper and the Create With Friends Stamp Set.  I love how this card turned out - it is so elegant in Basic Gray and Gold!

  1. Cut Basic Gray cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form cardbase
  2. Cut Gold Foil 4" x 5 1/4" 
  3. Cut 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper 1 5/8" x 3 3/4" - all different patterns
  4. Adhere to the Gold Foil piece using Stampin' Seal
  5. Wrap trim around middle and tie a bow on the right hand side
  6. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut Gold Foil 1 1/4" x 3 3/4"
  8. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 1 1/8" x 3 5/8"
  9. Stamp "Happy" sentiment using Basic Gray ink on the left hand side of the Very Vanilla piece
  10. Adhere to the Gold Foil piece.
  11. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  12. Stamp "birthday" sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock using VersaMark 
  13. Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder and heat to melt.
  14. Cut around word and adhere to the right hand side of the sentiment piece using Dimensionals.
  15. Adhere Gilded Gems to card base.
