Share it on a Sunday - Sparkle and Shine - Simply Elegant Congratulations Card

Hi Everyone,

The theme for this week is 'Sparkle/Shine' and I chose to use the beautiful new Simply Elegant designer series paper but it is hard to photograph and do it justice. This pattern is full of gorgeous copper, gold and silver flowers and leaves, it's stunning!!


1 piece of basic black card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of copper foil 4" x 5 3/4" and a scrap for the sentiment label
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of basic white card 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
Vine Designs stamp set
Flowering Vine dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
Memento Black ink
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


This is a very simple card, the dsp does all the talking, it needs very little else.  On the long side, score the black card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a landscape card base.

Adhere the copper foil layer and then the dsp layer leaving equal borders all around the edges.

Die cut the label from the Flowering Vine dies in copper foil.  Cut a scrap of basic white 1/2" x approx 3 1/2" and punch both ends to match the outline from the dies.  Stamp the sentiment on this strip and then adhere to the copper foil label with dimensionals.

Adhere the basic white layer to the inside of the card to write your message.

I hope that you like this quick and easy card, I hope these photos make it easier to see the beautiful pattern.
