This card is fun to create - with 4 different levels of gold on top of Very Vanilla two ways - it's a dynamic card.  Start with our 3-3/4"x 5" piece of Very Vanilla card stock and emboss it in the Spring Flowers embossing folder using the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  (The Very Vanilla on top of Very Vanilla looks so regal, doesn't it?)

Add a subtle gilded look using the Sponge Dauber in the Gold Encore Metallic ink pad and rubbing the raised images.  This causes additional dimension, too!  Wrap the Venetian Crochet Trim and Gold 1/8" Metallic Ribbon around the front of this embossed paper.
Using the Hello You thinlits on the Gold Foil, Big Shot Magnetic Platform and Die-Cutting Machine to create this metallic 'Happy'.  Layer this die-cut Happy over the ribbon using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755).

Rub a spare piece of Very Vanilla card stock with the Embossing Buddy.  Stamp this Birthday greeting from the Crazy About You stamp set and Versa Mark ink pad.  Cover and shake off the excess Gold Embossing Powder.  Heat set using the Heat Tool for a raised and elegant birthday.  Punch using the Modern Label Punch and apply it with Stampin' Dimensionals adhesive (104430) for depth and hold against the embossed background.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
