This or That? Dragonfly Garden Naturally Gilded Cards

Friends, it's time for another This or That! Which card is your fave?


Or That?

Both cards today feature the brand new 
Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP, paired with the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set. I'll include a clickable photo supply list at the end of this post. 

The sentiment "You are an inspiration" is such a versatile one! These cards could be for a Silver or Golden wedding anniversary, or they could just as easily be for a birthday, graduation, or to recognize someone's persistence in the face of great hardship.

To make the silver card, I started by die-cutting my label from Basic White Cardstock, using the Waves Dies. Next, I used my Embossing Buddy to remove humidity from the cardstock. Using VersaMark Ink, I stamped my sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set onto the label. (Ce jeu d'estampes est également disponible en français.) Then I stamped the floral image onto a 2" x 5" strip of Basic White Cardstock. 

Next, I embossed the images. I shook Silver Embossing Powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders over the images, then tapped off the excess and returned it to the jar. I used my Heat Tool to emboss both images. (If you've never used this tool before, it's as simple as using a hairdryer.) The Metallics Embossing Powders come in 3 colours: Copper, Gold & Silver:

To assemble the card, I first trimmed the edges of the floral image to turn it into a 1 1/2" x 5" rectangle. I positioned the floral image and two 1" x 5" strips of the Silver Naturally Gilded Specialty DSP on a 4" x 5 1/4" Silver Foil Specialty Pack panel. I used Grid Paper to help me centre the floral image, then adhered it with Stampin' Seal. I also adhered the Naturally Gilded strips with Stampin' Seal. 

I next fed Metallic Mesh Ribbon, folded in half, through the label and attached the ribbon to the back of the Silver Foil panel with Mini Glue Dots. I like this ribbon a lot, as it adds some shine to any project:

I added Stampin' Dimensionals behind the label to pop it up, then tied and attached a bow using Mini Glue Dots. My final step was adding the completed panel to a 4 1/4" x 11" Basic White Thick Cardstock card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I hope you enjoyed This or That, friends! If you need some supplies, I'd be happy to have you order with me. Please check out my Special Offers below - including an upcoming BOGO!
