Welcome to the Carols of Christmas blog hop! We are all showcasing the beautiful Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Card Front Builder thinlit dies. These two products were available as pre-order item for Stampin' Up! demonstrators in July. Yes, it is just one of the many benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. This lovely stamp set and thinlits will be available for everyone to order on August 1.
Don't you love all the gold? I didn't have any black and gold paper patterned paper so I layered the Basic Black card stock card base with the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, creating my own designer paper. The Carols of Christmas stamp set has a couple of bold sentiments. I wanted to highlight the sentiment so I mixed some gold embossing powder with gold glitter to create a gold sparkly embossing powder. I heat embossed the sentiment using this glittery gold mix and created the sparkly sentiment. The trees are dies in the Card Front Builder thinlits and they were cut in the Gold Glimmer paper and the Gold Foil paper. I like that the trees have different textures.
I added a strip of the polka dot Fabulous Foil acetate over a strip of black card stock to finish the inside of the card. Don't you love the ribbon? This is the Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge ribbon. It is a vanilla satin ribbon trimmed with a gold edge. This is a luxurious ribbon that is easy to tie and definitely adds a beautiful finishing touch.
