Recently I used the Florentine Filigree Thinlits Die to create a template for applying Shimmery White Embossing Paste to the front of a card. Afterward, I realized the template was covered in the paste, and of course I had to save it for another project. For today’s card, I glued the shimmery die cut template over Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, and added accents of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.


Here’s what I made:

I wish I could have gotten the shimmery part to show better in the photos.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • So Saffron card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Wood Textures DSP cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″, then the center cut out leaving a 1/4″ border all the way around
  • NOTE: Or you could cut 1/4″ strips of the Wood Textures DSP to create the frame
  • die cut template cut to 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Florentine Filigree stamp set:

  • sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Florentine Filigree Thinlit:

  • cut the shape from a piece of Whisper White CS, and spread Shimmery White Embossing Paste over the whole thing using a palette knife
  • This is the piece I had left over from a previous project.

Die cut using the Layering Circle Dies:

  • sentiment
  • slightly larger circle from a scrap of the wood DSP

Die cut using the Needlepoint Elements Framelits:

  • a piece of the wood DSP for behind the sentiment circles

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Garden Impressions DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • shimmery Florentine die cut piece glued onto the Garden Impressions DSP layer
  • wood DSP frame glued around the Florentine die cut
  • long wood DSP die cut glued over the Florentine die cut
  • sentiment glued onto the wood DSP circle, then adhered over the long wood DSP die cut using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
