Ornate Garden Golden Style

Hello and welcome to Part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Showcase. If you missed the previous instalment you can find it here.

This week I’d like to share with you this gorgeous, matching, Very Vanilla and Gold gift tag and card. This is such a stylish combination and the pops of colour provided by the Old Olive and Terracotta Tile Ribbon are the perfect finishing touch.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it… Gift Tag

The tag is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock. I have used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and the corner rounder from the Detailed Trio Punch to create the basic shape.

The main floral image from the Ornate Style Stamp Set is stamped in Versamark ink onto the tag and then heat embossed using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The sentiment is also heat embossed onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. This sentiment piece is adhered to the main tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A length of the Terracotta Tile Ribbon is threaded through the tag and secured in place using a shorter length of the Old Olive Ribbon.

Let’s make it… Card

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock. This is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Very Vanilla cardstock which has been embossed using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

A piece of Very Vanilla cardstock has been cut out using the Ornate Layers Dies. I masked off the intricate sections of the die cut and stamped the main floral image in Versamark ink. This was then heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder as with the tag.

A small length of each of the Terracotta Tile and Old Olive Ribbon were adhered to the back of the die cut using Tear & Tape such that they are just visible. This little bit of colour helps to break up the monochrome look and add a bit of extra interest. It also helps to tie the card in with the tag. The die cut is then adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is also heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and is cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. The sentiment piece is then adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Gilded Gems.
