Fall Roses

It's time for another challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such. Today I want to share with you the card I made for this week's challenge: Stripes, Dots, Chevrons. You can use all of the patterns or just one of them! I decided to go for the dots, in vintage style.


To make my card, first I printed a digital patterned paper that I designed (soon to be released) on White Pearl Linen. Then I die cut the patterned paper with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A.

To embellish the front of my card I die cut three ovals from Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, one medium size and two small ones. I created a medallion label with the last two, mounting one over the other. I ran across a piece of gross grain ribbon in cream between the medium oval and the small medallion label. I added a few pine leaves to one side of the ovals that were die cut from Poppy Stamps' Pine Garland, that looks quite charming and goes along well with the Fall theme.


Before I adhered the ovals to the patterned layer I mounted them on a strip of beige cardstock that I previously stenciled with Metallic Gold Embossing Paste using a Large Damask brass stencil, both from Dreamweaver. To finish the design I added two Baby Pearls - LeCreme.


I enjoyed very much making my card. I loved using the rich, gold embossing paste, experimenting with my dies and seeing how it all resulted together with the roses and the dots.

I hope you can join our challenge this week! To visit the store and check out the supplies I used, click here.

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Today I'm using stamps from -You are Loved-. I couldn't resist foiling this romantic rose on vellum. To give the card a soft contrast I used one of the new watercolor Deco Foil, that actually has different tones of lilac and purple allowing the image to really glow and stand out. I colored the back of the vellum with magenta using a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.

The sentiment was also foiled on whi…
