Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in cream cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Cardstock – Metallic Gold (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″)
  • Cardstock – Black (5-1/4″ x 4″)

Rub anti-static powder all over the piece of black cardstock. Ink the Jumbo Pine Sprig Large in VersaMark and stamp along the outside border of the card. Stamp the Mini Holly Leaf, rotating the stems toward the Pine Sprigs. Then, stamp the Tiny Pinecone, followed by the Tiny Berry. Fill in any areas with the Pine Branch. Stamp the, “JOY” sentiment in the center, also in VersaMark ink.

Sprinkle the stamped images with gold embossing powder, repeating until there is good coverage. Lightly knock off excess (use brush if necessary). Melt powder with heat tool. 

Glue black stamped panel to gold cardstock and then glue that to the card base.

For the envelope repeat the above process on the lower part of the front of the kraft envelope.
