You Warm My Heart!

Hello! I’m really excited to be back with the third instalment of my Stampin’ Up! Frosted Foliage Stamp Set Showcase. If you missed the first two posts you can find them here (part 1 and part 2).

This week I wanted to show that Frosted Foliage is not just for Christmas and doesn’t need to involve Balmy Blue or Night of Navy! With that in mind I have used a colour scheme of Very Vanilla and Soft Suede. I hope you like it!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock and I have followed this with a smaller layer of Soft Suede cardstock. The main background for the card is created from a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock onto which I have stamped in Soft Suede ink using the Crackle Paint background stamp. I have then embossed this layer using the Subtle 3D embossing folder. This gives a lovely texture to the background of the card.

For the sentiment piece I have also stamped in Soft Suede ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. This was then die cut using the Frosted Frames dies. I’ve added some extra interest by using a length of Copper Trim. The sentiment is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is created with the addition of gorgeous die-cut foliage from the Frosted Frames dies set. These have been cut from both Very Vanilla cardstock and Copper Foil Sheets. I think the shine and extra dimension produced by the foliage gives a lovely, luxurious feel to the card, making the recipient feel really special. Which, of course, is one of the main reasons to send handmade cards!
