Stampin' Up! Many Mates Anniversary!

Hey there! I created today's card on the fly for a 50th wedding anniversary party my oldest daughter,  Jessica, threw for her in-laws.  While looking for Gold Foil scraps to cut a "50", I found the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. This stuff is GORGEOUS!!!!!


I put a layer of Gold Foil behind the Blackberry Bliss embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder, but the star of the show is the Forever Gold Specialty! There are no words! The all-one-piece gold background behind the greeting includes the cut-out small and large gold leaves! I heat embossed the Many Mates greeting with gold embossing powder, then punched with the Tailored Tag punch.


I added a tiny gold Gilded Gem for just a little bit of bling. This picture also shows the fine detail of the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder on the Blackberry Bliss layer:


Inside I heat-embossed a sentiment from the new A Grand Kid stamp set, as well as leaves from Healing Hugs. To see a card made completely with Healing Hugs, check it out HERE.


This card is seriously one of the most elegant-but-simple cards I've ever made!

Note: The Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty paper is on back order until the week of August 10th, but you can still order it. It will ship separately from the rest of your order.
