I made this card for a special friend’s birthday using the amazing Sand & See bundle. I made my own pearlized paper using the shimmering paint on Rocco Rose cardstock. I am sure no one is shocked this set is carrying over into the new 2021-2022 annual catalogue. This set is simply stunning with all the texture.
Going old school with this wonderful retired stamp set; Watts of Occasions. See, it is OK to use your retired products 😉 Watts of Occasions is a great set full of puns. You know I cannot resist using the subtle embossing folder. Man, I am going to miss that when the current catalogue retires. Don’t worry, I bought a second Subtle EF as a back up 😉
So happy to know the poppies did NOT retire with the new annual catalogue!
When it’s your mom’s birthday, you need to go over the top. This card is simply stunning in person! There are many layers to this card but overall it was fairly simple to make. I CASEd this from Pinterest but it was made with much love.
I embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D EF (149643) on Whisper White. One of the Red Real layers was embossed using the Subtle 3D EF (151775). The stamp set is Forever Fern (152559) with the coordinating Forever Flourishing dies (152714). Speciality papers used are Heartwarming Hugs DSP (153492) & Silver Foil sheets (132178). 1 ½ Metallic Mesh Ribbon (153550) & Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (147801).

For this elegant card, I started with Whisper White for the card base. The first layer is Old Olive cut 5 ¼ x 4. I cut the Most Wonderful Time DSP (designer seriers paper) 1 ¾ x 5; cutting it so the gold was on the edges. I layered another piece of DSP cut 1 ½ x 5. These 2 layers were glued to the card base using glue of choice. I die cut a piece of Real Red using the Stitched Shapes dies (152323) then embossed it using the Subtle 3D EF (151775). The greenery with berries is a sticker from the Most Wonderful Time kit. I layered them behind the circle. The circle was adhered using dimensionals. The deer is a sticker from the Most Wonderful Time kit, I slapped him on the red circle- so easy!! For added subtle bling I used Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (147801). The sentiment is from the For Unto Us stamp set (153335) stamped in Old Olive.
