ScraPerfect: Fancy 2012 Heirloom Ornament Card

Today I'm up on the ScraPerfect Blog's Fancy 2012 Heirloom Ornament post! I'm a little bit early but I created a holiday card :0)

Fancy 2012 Heirloom Ornament Card by Margie Higuchi
Supplies – Stamp: JustRite® Papercraft (Lattice Background Stamp); Ink: TSUKINEKO (VersaMark); Embossing Powder: Stampendous (Detail White); Dies, Embossing Folder & Craft Foil: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S5-116 2012 Heirloom Ornament, S5-131 A-2 Matting Basics A, S5-132 A-2 Matting Basics B, EL-014 Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities™ Folder and F-012 Precious Metal Premium Craft Foils Assortment); Tools & Adhesive: ScraPerfect (Embellie Gellie, Perfect Crafting Pouch, Perfect Cleaning Cloth and Best Glue Ever); Other: Black, White Cardstock, Red Tinsel Trim

Swipe the Perfect Crafting Pouch over the black cardstock before stamping image. I also swipe the Perfect Crafting Pouch over the sheet of paper to catch the embossing in…don’t want to miss any powder! LOL!


Next I cut/embossed all my pieces with Spellbinders Card Creator series – all the die cuts layer perfectly on to an A-2 (4 ¼ x 5 ½”) card. Using the Best Glue Ever, I can even apply glue on the narrowest of edges.



When placing all the pieces together, you will get a card front that is shown below...


Next I embossed the craft foil with M-Bossabilities Folder and cut/emboss it with 2012 Heirloom Ornament. I wanted to highlight the beautiful embossing so I used sandpaper and wipe it clean with the Perfect Cleaning Cloth.

 
Then I assembled all the pieces together to create the finished card...here's a second look.
 


Hope you enjoyed the process and how these ScraPerfect products are a "must have" in your basic tool kit! LIKE what you see? Bookmark ScraPerfect's Blog and LIKE them on ScraPerfect FaceBook Page!
