Thank you for visiting my site and participating in the blog hop. Today, I’m going to show a stamp set from the SU! Annual Catalog, First Frost, for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. And, I am participating in the Fusion Card Challenge-Christmas.
Our theme for the blog hop is Celebration and our family is celebrating an engagement. Our son, Daniel, has become engaged to Elena. I am so happy for both of them and wanted to send a card using First Frost for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop.
To begin, I made a card base using 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches of Whisper White Thick cardstock, scored at 4 1/4 inches. After that, I embossed a 4 x 5 1/4 inches piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder. In addition, I adhered the embossed layer to the card front with SNAIL adhesive.
Second, I used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks to stamp flowers, leaves and branches (from the First Frost stamp set) on Whisper White cardstock. After that, I cut the stamped images with the Frosted Bouquet Dies. Also, I cut several branches of Goil Foil with the dies. Then, I adhered the rose images to the lower right corner of card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Afterwards, I adhered the leaves and branches to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Third, I stamped a sentiment from the First Frost stamp set with Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White cardstock. After that, I cut around the sentiment using the Frosted Bouquet Dies. Then, using the same dies, I cut a mat for this layer out of Gold Foil. Afterwards, I adhered the layers together with SNAIL adhesive and added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Fourth, I added a bow using the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and adhered it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot. Then, I randomly added three Gold Metallic Pearls.
Fifth, I stamped a sentiment from the First Frost stamp set with Soft Suede ink onto 4 x 5 1/4 inches of Whisper White cardstock. In addition, I adhered two leaves besides the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Finally, I adhered the layer to the inside of the card with SNAIL adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed seeing First Frost for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. Be sure to visit the other blogs in the hop, as listed below.
