Gold & Navy Birthday Card With Mixed Borders Stamp Set

This card is stunningly beautiful and I seem to be going back to my old love of gold & navy again. I just simply love this colour combination! Moth to a flame and all that jazz!

I used a card from Stampin’Up!’s pack of pre-made note cards and envelopes. These are smaller than your standard sized card, but they are ever so cute. To make the gold border around the edge of the card, simply take your versamark pad and press down all around the edge. Then cover it with gold embossing powder and heat it up. I did the same to make the gold circle – although I made a huge gold patch and then punched it out – no burnt fingers for me!

To make the background wash, I stamped the paintbrush stamp all over, then blended in the white patched with the aqua painter. Details of all the products I used are down below.

Product List

Hostess Code – I reward my customers when they shop with me

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!

This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page
