Die Cutting + Gold Embossing | Karen Reategui

Hi crafty friends! It’s Fri-YAY! And I’m up at Trinity Stamps blog sharing two Christmas cards featuring Winter Botanical stamps. There’s a lot of die cutting in these cards, but once you get everything done it’s very easy to put all together.

Let’s begin! I started by stamping in 4 different colors of cardstock all the images, using Versamark emboss ink and heat embossed them with WOW Metallic Gold embossing powder.

Then I die cut all images using the matching dies.

For my first card, I used a black panel as my background and I arranged some images top, using tape runner and foam tape.

Next, I placed this panel onto gold cardstock and finally I adhered a red card base on the back using tape runner.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment onto Neenah Desert Storm 80 lb and heat embossed it with WOW Metallic Gold embossing powder and added it to the bottom of the card.

For my second card, I used Kraft cardstock, which is also great to create contrast with the images.

I adhered this kraft panel to a red card base using tape runner.

For this card, I created small arrangements with the flowers and greenery.

I put the arrangements in the upper right side of the card.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. This sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Christmas Wishes Stamp.

These were my two cards for today at Trinity Stamps blog. I love the contrast of the red flowers and the black background. They pop up so beautifully! And the small arrangements are really adorable. There are so many possibilities with the Winter Botanical Stamp and dies.
