Feels like Frost DSP

This paper is absolutely stunning!  One side of each 6″ x 6″ sheet has a gorgeous winter photo, the other side has different silver patterns on Whisper White.  Both sides are fabulous.  Here’s the photo from the SU! holiday catalog:

The paper is so gorgeous, it does all the work on this easy-peasy card, while meeting the ctd565 challenge:  lavendar, grey, and black.  

Here’s my card:

The DSP Does All the Work

I really did not want to cover up this gorgeous print.  The Stampin Up! colors in this print are Purple Posy, Highland Heather, and Smoky Slate.  

The sentiment is from the retired, but permanent stamp set on my shelves, Watercolor Christmas.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on vellum cardstock.  It’s been quite a while since I had any luck using embossing powder, but I wanted to try for this card.  Therefore, I used my embossing buddy on the vellum before I stamped the sentiment.  While still wet, I covered the sentiment with clear embossing powder.  I wasn’t sure how it would come out, but it worked.  Score!  I did need to use the heat gun from the top and bottom to help keep the vellum from warping.  The embossing doesn’t show up well on the photo, but it does in person.

I cropped both the vellum and Purple Posy cardstock layer using the Layered Circles die set.  Since there wasn’t a way to easily hide the adhesive behind the sentiment, I used a make-up wedge to spread Tombow liquid adhesive over the whole Purple Posy cardstock layer.  Since the whole circle is covered with adhesive, it doesn’t show through.  Next, I ran a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock through the Big Shot in the Subtles embossing folder, turned the paper 90 degrees and ran it through again.  This gave the cardstock a hatched appearance.  I used the Layered Circles die set for this circle as well.  

Finishing Touches

Next, I matted the DSP on Basic Black cardstock to both coordinate with the sentiment and to provide a real pop against the DSP.

Finally, I tied a pieces of the black glittered organdy ribbon around the base/DSP, popped up the sentiment on dimensionals and attached it down.  I used a piece of the DSP on the envelope flap, and I was done.
