This card was inspired by this Fab Friday sketch:
The ornaments were made using the thinlet set that co-ordinates with Stampin' Up's Embellished Ornaments stamp set. In addition to having outlines to cut out stamped images, there are some dies designed for layering. To make the ornaments, I covered each die cut with Versamark ink, heat embossed them with Gold Superfine Detail powder from Ranger or Black Detail powder from Stampendous, and then layered them. I looped black metallic embroidery thread around the hangers and, once the ornaments were glued in place, wrapped the ends round to the back and used tape to secure them. A small bow and pearls brightened up the ornaments. Here is a close up:
The sentiment was stamped in Black Versafine ink, an intensely black pigment ink, and embossed with clear detail powder. To gild the edges, I pressed them lightly into Versamark and then gold embossing powder and heat embossed. The sentiment is attached with thin foam tape. Lastly I attached the completed panel to a card base with craft foam in between for dimension. This card is a 6.5 x 5 inches to accommodate the ornaments and keep with the sketch.
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, Hansi
