Cup of Tea Evening Evergreen Card & Demo

Friends, Happy St Patrick's Day later this week! In honour of the holiday, I'm using a green colour scheme in today's card:

This card features the Cup of Tea Bundle, Wintry 3D Embossing Folders, and two fabulous specialty papers. Le jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français. I'll include a clickable photo supply list for you at the end of this post.

To make this card, I started by stamping and heat embossing. Using VersaMark Ink, I stamped the teacup from the Cup of Tea Stamp Set onto a scrap of Evening Evergreen Cardstock. Here's a look at the Cup of Tea Bundle, with so many wonderful details:

I sprinkled on Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders, returning the excess to the jar. To emboss, I used my Heat Tool to work its magic, turning the powder into a shiny, raised gold. If you haven't embossed before, no worries! Using the heat tool is as easy as using a hairdryer, with a simple on/off switch.

Next, I did the die cutting and dry embossing. I first cut out the stamped teacup with the Teacup Dies. With the same dies, I cut out 3 hearts using a Gold scrap of Fine Shimmer Paper Pack. This fabulous paper is super-sparkly without creating a glitter storm in your house! (The sparkle is right in the paper and stays there.) It comes in Gold, Fresh Freesia, and Soft Succulent:


With the 3rd largest circle in the Stylish Shapes Dies, I cut out a Soft Succulent Cardstock label. I stamped my sentiment in Evening Evergreen Ink. Then I used the evergreen boughs folder from Wintry 3D Embossing Folders to emboss a 3" x 5 1/4" strip of Evening Evergreen Cardstock.

To assemble the card, I first layered onto a 4 1/4" x 11" Crumb Cake Cardstock card base the embossed strip, plus a 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of Gold Fine Shimmer Paper and a 2" x 5 1/4" strip of Soft Succulent Dry Brushed Metallic Specialty DSP. This beautiful paper also comes in a Petal Pink/Cajun Craze version:


To finish the card, I added all my die cuts, using Stampin' Dimensionals. Then I tied a bow in Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon and attached it with a Mini Glue Dot. Finally, I embellished with Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.
