Hello and happy Thursday readers! Thank you for coming by to visit. Today is Day 3 of showcasing new release products from Whimsy Stamps and I am sharing another card using the Elegant Ornaments stamp set and coordinating die. If you missed Tuesday's whimsical slimline card, please click here. You can also see yesterday's elegant black and gold card here. All three cards can also be viewed at the end of this post.
I really enjoy sharing different ways to use the same stamp set. I have found that by creating a variety of cards, the stamp set appeals to a larger audience. I also feel like I'm getting "more bang for my buck" by using the stamp set multiple times rather than using it for just one card and then moving on to something else!
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Melon Mambo cardstock for the first layer. Using the Slimline Scenic Window, I die cut the frame from Pool Party cardstock.
I stamped pne of the ornaments in Pool Party Ink and one in Melon Mambo ink. Then I heat embossed two of the ornaments with white embossing powder on Melon Mambo cardstock. I heat embossed one ornament with white embossign powder on Pool Party cardstock. I used the coordinating die to die cut all the ornaments out. I adhered the ornaments to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas" in Melon Mambo ink on two separate thin strips of white cardstock and adhered them to each side of the card.
Here are the other two cards I made using the Elegant Ornaments stamp set and coordinating die:
