Hello my friends! I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather today because it is supposed to come to an end for a few days. The rain is perfect weather for crafting in my world.
Today's card uses one of my favourite new stamps from the new catalogue. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I get to see the catalogue and order from it a month before it goes live. Such a great perk! The stamp set I used is called Elegantly Said. It is gorgeous!
I am also using 2 more of the new In Colours. I am using Evening Evergreen (the dark green) and Soft Succulent (the lighter green). They are both beautiful colours.
I started with a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock. I used my Stamparatus to line up the stamp in the corner of the cardstock. I stamped with Versamark ink and then added some Gold Embossing powder and heated it to melt. I flipped the cardstock around and stamped the same image in the opposite corner and repeated the stamping, embossing powder and heating. I love how the gold looks on this beautiful green. I then used my paper trimmer to cut the cardstock in half from corner to corner. I added these two pieces to a piece of Basic White cardstock. I adhered them exactly in the corners of the white cardstock so that there was a strip of white diagonally through the center of the card. I used my Stamparatus again to line up my sentiment to stamp on the center portion of my card. I used the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in Jet Black Staz On ink.
I matted this piece onto a piece of Soft Succulent cardstock and then added it to an Evening Evergreen card base. To finish off my card, I added two Gilded Gems on either side of the sentiment.

Soft Succulent Cardstock (Available May 4th)

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I cannot say who this card is going to because that friend follows my blog. I will say though that it is for a friend that did something very sweet for me. Thank you my friend!
Stay well and keep creating!
