World of Good Congratulations Card

Hi Everyone,

Those of you who follow me will know that I regularly show you projects that are challenges.  Sometimes it's colours, sometimes a particular product and sometimes it's a sketch.  I do lots of challenges with two of my crafty friends - Taffycrafting (Donna Lester) and Vickieloudesigns (Victoria Littlewood) and we have a regular weekly one called Share it on a Sunday. Well, now Donna has challenged us to do some sketch challenges over the next few weeks to keep our creative mojo going and I'm going to use them as a chance to show you new products as well as some old favourites that I haven't used for a while.  So, here goes with my Challenge 9 of #33, I hope that you like it.

(sketch from


1 piece of basic black card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" and 1 piece 1/2" x 3 1/4"
1 piece of whisper white card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and 1 piece 3 1/8" x 4 3/8" (I have used World of Good)
1 piece of gold foil 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and 1 piece 1/2" x 3 5/8"
Gold embossing powder
Versamark ink
Embossing buddy
Heat Tool
Memento Black ink
Sending You Thoughts stamp set
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder


Score the basic black card stock at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a card base.

Adhere the largest piece of dsp to the centre of the card front leaving a border all around.

Add the small er piece of contrasting dsp to the gold foil layer leaving a small border all around and fix to the front of the card at an angle.

Add the gold strip across the card front as shown.

Rub the embossing buddy over the strip of black card and then stamp the sentiment with the Versamark ink.  Sprinkle the gold embossing powder over it and then shake off the excess and set with the heat tool.  Now add this layer using dimensionals overlapping the gold strip on the card front.

Stamp a sentiment on the whisper white layer using memento black ink and then adhere this layer to the inside of the card.

Why don't you give the sketch a try, you can use whatever you want and it will be a unique card.
