Silver, Black, and Gold color combinations are so pretty. They give a special elegance to the card, even with some of the most simplistic designs.

Believe it or not, this is a very simple card. It is made with a few of the new Sale-A-Bration items that you can get FREE with purchase. For a $50 purchase, you can get the Most Adored Specialty paper. It is filled with gold accents, Real Red, and Flirty Flamingo.

If you make a purchase of $100, then you can get the Softly Sophisticated bundle. It consists of a floral stamp set and coordinating embossing folder.

Now, on to the card.

  • Begin with a 5 ½” x 8 ½” piece of Basic Black cardstock, score and fold at 4 ¼” to form your card base.
  • Adhere a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Most Adored Specialty DSP (SAB) to the card base.
  • Sandwich a 3” x 4 ¼” piece of Basic Black cardstock in the Softly Sophisticated embossing folder and run through your cut & emboss machine. Adhere it to the card diagonally, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the leaves of the flower on a piece of Basic White cardstock with Versamark ink. Quickly dust it with Gold embossing powder, tap off the excess, and set in place with your Heat Tool. Repeat the process with the flowers, then with the sentiment in Black embossing powder. (hint- be sure to leave enough space between the flower and the sentiment for your ribbon.)

  • Crop the image and sentiment with the 4th smallest triangle from the Deckled Rectangles dies.

I Think You Should Join My Team

Do you want to get a discount on your Stampin’ Up! items and be part of fun, crafting community? Joining Stampin’ Up!, and being a part of my team, will do just that.

I would love to mentor you in your demonstratorship, whether you are wanting to run a stamping business or stamp as a hobbyist. You will get personalized attention from me, and be a part of Mary Fish’s large social network of Pals. Special access to my tutorials is included as well.

Joining during Sale-A-Bration brings some extra goodies too! Normally when you join Stampin’ Up!, you pick out $125 worth of products and it costs you $99. Now through February 29th, you get to choose between two more options. You can add an additional $30 worth of product (that’s $155 worth for $99) or get the new Stampin’ Glass Mat Studio (a $60 value plus the $125 in product for $99)

Joining couldn’t be easier and there is no risk if you don’t like it. If you’re not able to meet the quarterly minimum ($300 by sales or your own personal purchases) by the end of the first full quarter (plus a grace month), then you simply revert back to a customer. If at some point down the road, you want to join again, you can.

A demonstrator gets a 20-25% off of their purchases and is always the first to know and obtain new product. Sound exciting, it is!! What are you waiting for?
