Hello friends and happy Tuesday! November 1 was a new release day with Whimsy Stamps and for the next three days, I will be sharing one of my favorite new stamp sets and coordinating dies from this latest release! I will be showing you different ways to use the new Elegant Ornaments stamp set and coordinating die to achieve a variety of unique looks for your handmade cards.
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" by 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. On an 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, I ink blended Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn, Barn Door, Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron. I think splattered white acrylic paint over the distress inks.
I used the Slimline Postage Die to create a frame from white cardstock. I stamped the ornaments from the new Elegant Ornaments stamp set in red, green, pink and lime ink. Then I heat embossed the ornaments on red cardstock, lime green and pink cardstock in white embossing powder. I die cut all the ornaments out and adhered them down the left side of the card panel using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment "Christmas" in red ink on a thin strip of white cardstock and adhered it to the lower right side of the card. Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment "wishes" with white embossing powder on red cardstock and fussy cut the sentiment out adhering it below the "Christmas" sentiment.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card and will come back tomorrow to see another way to use this new stamp set.
