Ornate Thanks Card

Hello and welcome! It’s about this time every year that I start delving into my stash of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to see what I have left. The new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue goes live in less than 2 months from now! Super exciting BUT DSP tends not to carry over from catalogue to catalogue, so, if there is something you really love stock up NOW!

One of the DSPs that I’ll miss most is the Noble Peacock Speciality DSP. Featuring Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock, this foil-accented paper is so elegant.

In today’s card I decided to team it with the equally elegant Ornate Thanks Stamp Set plus the Ornate Layers and Ornate Border Dies.

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

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Pretty Peacock cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the Noble Peacock DSP. I have cut a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock to the same length as the DSP layer and used one of the Ornate Border Dies to decorate the top and bottom. This is adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This sentiment piece is cut out using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. Another piece of the DSP is also die cut using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. These pieces are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What else could I use for the final touch on such an elegant card but the Pearl Basic Jewels?! Stunning!
