I need to create a wedding card and found I didn't have a background that I liked so I created a Totally Gold Card with a Unique Background....here's the card. Note: I know the photography is pathetic...it was the best I could do with all that shine and sparkle!
Do you recognize the background? Bet not! The fun part of this background is that I did it about 4 times and each time it had it's own character! So by now you know it's not a Stampin'Up! embossing folder and it's not a Designer Series Paper, right?
OK, I'll tell you...I used the biggest clear block, Versamark ink, and gold embossing powder. It's probably the easiest technique I've shared with you. I'm going to give you the directions below---you'll want to try this out yourself because you will have such a great time creating unique backgrounds you won't want to stop! Then I'll give you the supply list...you'll want to use this month's Hostess Code (Z9DFJV4T) when you order online so you'll get your name in the drawing for a $50 Stampin'Up! product gift certificate!
Here's how to create this card
1. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score the long side at 4 1/4 (card base).
2, Cut Gold Foil paper 3 3/8 X 5 1/8; adhere to card base front with multipurpose liquid glue.
3. Cut Very Vanilla carstock 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 lay your cardstock on the piercing mat (item #126199) Note: you may want to cover the mat with a paper towel to keep the ink from staining the mat. Ink up the entire surface of Block F with Versamark and "stamp" this on the cardstock surface---pressing well over the entire block. Lift the block and sprinkle gold embossing powder over the surface of the cardstock and heat with the Heat Tool until shiny gold. (What a WOW look, right?). Cut this piece to 3 3/4 X 5"--select the portion that you like best. Adhere this piece to the card front with liquid glue.
4. Cut a large butterfly (Butterflies thinlets) from Gold Glimmer paper; adhere to the card front with glue dots (item #103683).
5. Rub embossing buddy on Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp "For the Newlyweds" in Versmark ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, sprinkle with gold embossing powder, heat with heat tool until shiny gold. Punch with the Classic Label punch (item #141491) and adhere to card front with dimensionals.
