Oh, Happy Day

Special occasion card with gold embossed vellum | Stampingville #cardmaking #papercrafts #StampinUp

If you love the current gold trend, then you probably don't need a reason to use it on your handmade cards. But it's perfect for a special occasion card such as a wedding, anniversary, or graduation. This card is easy to create, but looks like a million bucks ... or gold bars, as the case may be ... and shines beautifully when the light hits all the gold embossing.

The "oh, HAPPY DAY" sentiment from the Starburst Sayings stamp set gets glammed up with gold embossing. Cropping the starburst is quick and easy using the coordinating Starburst Framelits and the Big Shot.

NOTE: For a limited time, save 15% on the Starburst Sayings Bundle. Includes the stamp set in wood-mount or clear-mount plus the coordinating framelit dies. Bundle offer ends June 4!

For the simple (but festive!) background, the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum is layered over Whisper White cardstock and matted with a piece of the Gold Foil Sheets. Adding the Whisper White behind the vellum keeps the background "white".

The dainty little flower, created with the (retiring) Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, features a gold sequin topped off with a small pearl.

TIP: Cut the length you need from the Gold Sequin Trim or snip the thread to use individual sequins.

Pairing Burlap Ribbon with Natural Chevron Ribbon is a great look together and dresses up or down very nicely. In this case, I'd call it a "leather and lace ala Stevie Nicks" sort of combination!

Happy Monday - have a great week.
