When You Just Have to Make an Extra Special Card

When you just have to make an extra special card why not use that extra special paper that you have been hoarding? Of course any of us who are in the business knows, it is the same answer any paper crafter would give. “It’s so pretty and I can’t get any more.” No worries today though this card is for my Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Tom’s 50th Anniversary. An event worth digging into my fanciest paper stash.  Some of the items in this card are retired (R) but if you have them feel free to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) if not then the lay out works for whatever you may have on hand.

The Stars of the Show:

  • Adhesive:  Snail & Dimensionals
  • Base: Whisper White folded 8.5 x 5 1/2
  • Cardstock: Gold Foil Sheet 2 1/2 x 2 3/4 Whisper White 3 1/4 x 1 and 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP): Springtime Foils (R) 4 x 5 1/4
  • Die: Large Numbers Framelits Dies (R) & Stitched Shapes Framelits
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Stamp Set: Number of Years (R)
  • Tools & Accessories:  Big Shot, Bone folder, Clear Block G, Foil Snowflake (R), Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder,  Stampin’ Trimmer

Make It Yourself:

  1. Cut Whisper White at the 5 1/2 mark along the 11 side, fold and burnish with the bone folder to make the base.
  2. Cut DSP to 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the base with snail.
