 Good morning!

Find all the materials HERE

Card size: 4 3/4" X 6 3/4".

Cut 1 piece of white heavy weight cardstock 6 3/4" X 7 1/2", cut another piece 6 3/4" X 4”. Die cut the 6 3/4 X 4” piece on 1 end with edge die, point side out. Cut the other piece of cardstock on 1 end with the edge die, point side in. Score and fold the 6 3/4 X 4” piece and glue onto the other die cut piece (glue straight edges together) so that 2 halves meet and interlock (should be about a 1/2" tab on straight side).

Use medium pink decorative paper to cut both halves with decorative die plus edge die (both halves) and also cut a piece of the decorative paper for the card inside center at 4 3/8” X 6 1/2". Cut a piece of gold for the inside at 4 5/8” X 6 5/8”, 2 pieces for the outside 3 1/2" X 6 5/8” Die cut the 2 smaller pieces with the decorative dies plus edge die. Glue the pink onto the gold for inside and for outside, outside decorative die cut pieces will be off set just slightly so that halves still semi-interlock. Glue center stack to inside of card and glue outside decorative pieces to the 2 matching outside card base fronts. Use the 2 halves of the decorative die (without edge die) to cut a piece of white cardstock for the inside at 4 1/4" X 6 3/8”. Place the lattice looking bar at the “top” of inside.

Stamp the Elegant Rose Banner and the bird from the Cascading Petals collection using London Fog (if coloring with alcohol markers) if using water-based brushes or markers use other light-colored ink best suited for that. Die cut then color. For the Rose Banner, separately stamp sentiment using Magenta Hue then die cut with separate die piece (included with Rose Banner die). Also cut a piece of foam to go under the sentiment, glue together all pieces then glue to the center inside of card.

For the outside: Stamp smallest Wild Rose trio several times using Magenta Hue on Deluxe Flower Shaping Cardstock, Die cut, sponge edges and backs only, place in Shaping Mold then finish shaping with the Deluxe flower Shaping Kit, inside gold stamen then glitter flowers with Crystal Clear.

Stamp Leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut then shape in mold. Cut leaves into leaf groups of 1 or 2.

Decorate the front: Round the back of the bird a bit with the largest stylist tool from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, add dimensional to keep it popped up about 1/4" or so. Glue flowers and leaves of bird image top right. Add 5 roses to image then glue 2 more flowers with Leaves to the bottom right.

Glitter the bird and inside of card.

My next card features another of the Black Friday dies.

Card size: 5 X 7”.

Make a shaped card by placing the outer die of the Fancy Oval Frames off the fold at the top of a 5 X 7 card. Cut another front from white then glue it to the card base matching bottom and sides.

Glue together the plaid and a piece of floral decorative paper to make 5” X 7” then die cut it using the outer die. Make a strip about ¼” wide to cover the 2 papers meeting from pink cardstock then make a strip of white about 3/16” to go on top of the pink. Use the outer die with the next die in the set to create a border out of pink cardstock. Glue the decorative paper onto card front followed by the strips of pink and white then lastly the pink border. Adhere pearls to the narrow strip.

Cut the center oval and decorative oval from white, the oval again from pink and foam sheet. Glue the pink under the white oval and the decorative oval on top. Glue the foam sheet to the bottom then glue to the center of card front Either remove pearls from directly underneath or make a channel for the pearls in your foam.

Stamp, die cut and color the Elegant Rose Banner heart then stamp the Happy Anniversary in the center of the banner. Cut a foam sheet for the heart, glue them together then glue to the white oval.

Stamp roses using Magenta Hue, sponge with Pink Peony, die cut then shape in the shaping mold. Stamp leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut then shape in the mold. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to finish roses and layer them (see video). Glitter the flowers with Crystal Clear, lacquer the leaves.

Joy To The World Slimline Card

 Good morning!

Today I have made a Christmas Slimline with this beautiful set by Amazing Paper Grace!
Thank you Amazing Paper Grace for the dies I've used today!
I've used the Joy Cresent Card Builder (S5-466), the Fluted Slimline (S6-186), and Cinch and Go Poinsettias (S4-960).

I used lots or gold glitter paper on this card.  Under the beautiful arched borders,
behind the red Fluted layer and behind the poinsettia on the Joy to the World.  I also used some gold beaded stamen (from HC) in the 3D poinsettias.
The paper background is some paper from a paper pack I bought at my local stamp store, it is from Memory Box.  I used some gold rhinestones from Spellbinders on the Joy poinsettia.
The gold pearls at each corner are also from Spellbinders.
