Good Morning Magnolia, Thinking of You Card, 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I found this beauty on Pinterest.  I thought it was such a fun looking card.  I liked the monochromatic look.  I think the original card was made using copper embossing powder and copper foil card stock. I didn't have either in copper so I used gold.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla card stock.  I took a 2-1/8" x 5-1/2" piece of copier paper and taped it down with removable tape.  Then I stamped the flower image from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set using Versa Mark.  I then embossed the flowers with gold embossing powder.  

I cut a 3-1/8" strip of gold foil card stock. Actually I cut two because the piece I had wasn't long enough (5-1/2") so I pieced it in.  The open space is under the word panel and no one will ever see it.  

I stamped the words from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set using Soft Suede ink.  I die cut the words and the gold foil card stock using the "Stitched Nested Labels" dies.  I taped them together.

Then I added a little snail tape to the front of the card where the strip was pieced in. I stuck some gold thread to the tape and then I added a piece of transparent tape to hold the threads down.

I added Dimensionals to the back of the word piece and I set it in place on the front of the card.

And that was it. This was a very easy and fun card to make. I LOVE this layout.  I saw another card using this layout and I think I may give it a try too.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
