Hand-Penned Petals Black & Gold Theme - Stamp Around UK Video Hop

 Hi Everyone,

It's time for the Stamp Around UK Video Hop again and the theme this month is 'Black and Gold'. I have made a thank you card using gold foil and gold heat embossing and the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.  There is a video tutorial for this card, just click on the link below:

Video Tutorial


1 piece of basic black card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", 1 piece 4" x 5"
1 piece of basic white card 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of gold foil 4" x 5 1/4"
Hand Penned Petals stamp set
Heartfelt Wishes stamp set
Metallics Embossing Powders
Heat Tool
Scalloped Contour dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the black card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Die cut the largest scalloped rectangle in gold foil and the next size down in basic black.

Stamp the main floral image and the sentiment in Versamark on the black scalloped rectangle, sprinkle with gold powder and set with the Heat Tool.  Stamp a sentiment on the basic white using Versamark, I also stamped one of the smaller images from the Hand Penned Petals in the corner. Sprinkle with powder and set.

Adhere the white layer on the inside of the card.

Adhere the gold layer to the card front using multipurpose adhesive and then add the embossed layer with dimensionals.

A very quick and easy card but I think it looks very effective too, I hope that you like it.
