Hi everyone! I hope you’re starting to receive some handmade cards! I hope to get mine mailed out this weekend!
Today’s post is about this new die from Simon Says Stamp, Shimmer Oval. This was so easy to make!
I die cut in 110# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I do shim but I use copy paper, not the metal shim. I just add a folded piece of copy paper on top of my top cutting plate and cut with the die blades up. This one I used two folded pieces of copy paper, so 4 layers.
Then the oval white panel and the gold glitter panel I die cut with Memory Box Rectangle Basics dies.
I heat embossed the sentiment from SSS Inside Christmas Greetings clear stamp set on a piece of vellum with Ranger super fine detail gold embossing powder.
I die cut two of the mistletoe dies from the SSS Christmas Foliage die from Diecember Release also. I added Ranger Gold glitter stickles to the berries. I debated adding them but I gave myself a talking to. I’m always wanting to leave things plain, so I had to ask myself why did I buy gold glitter stickles then?! So I put them on the berries. ha!
I glued the gold glitter cardstock panel to the white A2 cardbase first. Then I adhered the white oval panel with strips of foam mounting tape. The white floral oval is glued flat on the inside of the popped up oval panel.
I prepared the vellum panel by creasing the folds on each end before I stuck the white panel down, making it easier to adhere after I placed the inside floral oval.
Then I just glued the ends of the mistletoe cuts.
I still have to stamp something on the inside. In fact most of my cards that I need to get mailed still need stamped on the inside. I am always sorry I don’t do that when I make the card. moan. Oh well, I’ll set up the platforms and get them stamped! hehe
Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping, shopping, whatever phase you’re in! Relaxing would be nice! haha
