This card is one that incorporates several of the new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive products that were debuted this month, and I could hardly wait to get home from vacation to put them all together to create it!
Part of the delay in creating this card was in acquiring a Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system! There must have been a few of us who decided at the same time to jump on this bandwagon, because they were in short supply everywhere! Once I got my hands on one, I set about practicing and learning (not a steep learning curve if you’re wondering how hard it is) and this beautiful, smooth “love” Hot Foil sentiment came from that.
Next, I adhered some double-sided adhesive paper to white cardstock, and die cut one of the leaf stems in the Etched Meadows Flower and Leaves die set, then removed the remaining release paper and covering with more of the same Copper foil used for the sentiment. Just for cohesiveness. I also die cut the other leaf stem and the flower stem from white cardstock and adhered them plain.
I did some surgery and cut the “you” from another sentiment stamp and stamped with Versamark embossing ink and heat set with a very old (20 years if it’s a day!) little bottle of Rust Tapestry embossing powder I’ve had the foresight not to get rid of, just waiting for this day to arrive! The texture is slightly more granular than I would have liked, but the color is an excellent match!
I dry embossed a piece of white cardstock with the Circle Rings Embossing Folder, then tore it in half diagonally across the panel. I trimmed the hot-foiled panel slightly smaller than A2 size and adhered it to a card front before adding the dry embossed piece. I adhered the die cut stems with strong liquid glue, then practiced the hard trick of Clean and Simple by leaving it at that! Actually, it probably still has too many textures to strictly qualify as CAS, but whatever, I’m taking it as a win!
