Bright Hopes

Bright HopeBefore I give the details on this card, I want to say that this is a card I did back in December of 2011.  Yes…it is an OLD one!  I had this posted on my old blog and it is ‘all over’ Pinterest!  I frequently get questions about this and thought, since people do ask about this a lot I’d do a re-post on here so that everyone can find the information.  Unfortunately I don’t have the card to do the dimensions for you, but I’ll give some approximations.  I had used this for a presentation I did for Stampin’ Up! at a regional and this was the card they selected to keep.  It really is a BEAUTIFUL card in person!

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Snowburst Embossing Folder (retired).  Add to card front.
  • OLD Silver Glimmer paper (this is lighter than the current Silver Glimmer paper but a little darker than the Dazzling White Glimmer paper) – maybe 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.  I cut out the inside of this panel so it makes it easier for the top panels to adhere to it.
  • Whisper White – maybe 2 3/4 x 4, add using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – maybe 2  5/8 x 3 7/8, stamp tree using Versamark and emboss with Pewter (can substitute Silver) Embossing Powder, add using dimensionals.
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 4 (maybe), stamp greeting using Versamark and emboss using Pewter Embossing Powder, cut into a banner.  NOTE: originally I used the Petal Cone Die’s banner for this…but you can make your own
  • Make a ‘bow’ (check out my tutorial on this) using White Organza and Neutral Glimmer Brad, add to banner and add using dimensionals.
Set(s): Bright Hopes (Holiday Mini 2011)
Paper: Whisper White, OLD Silver Glimmer
Ink: Versamark
Other: Pewter Embossing Powder (can substitute Silver), Snowburst Embossing Folder (Retired), Petal Cone Die (retired – can cut your own), Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Neutral Glimmer Brads (retired), Dimensionals

Hope you enjoyed this ‘blast from the past’ and until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!
