Happy Monday! Oh wow – late in the day post today… we went sailing this morning… 🙂 what a wonderful way to begin the week! Here’s a quick photo you might enjoy – then I’ll get on to the real reason for this post: today’s card.

Bullseye Sailboat Mainsail

Beautiful sky, right? It was pretty peaceful out there on the river. OK – today’s card is made with the very new Merriest Moments bundle which can be found in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. This comes with three pieces: stamp set, hybrid embossing folder and dies. Hybrid indicates this embossing folder has a coordinating die that can be run through WITH the embossing folder, at the same time! Whoa… It is very cool. Here is the end result – well, my end result for my first play with this set.

Merriest Moments Bundle.1

This card was made with Very Vanilla card stock, gold foil, gold embossing powder and a couple more items. I happen to like monochromatic cards and this one certainly fits that criteria. My first step was to run the embossing folder through without any dies. It created the gorgeous background you see. I then ran another piece through with the embossing folder AND the large outline die – using the embossing plates. I then used the die cutting plates to cut with the detail die to get this gorgeous detail die cut. There is also a rectangle die in this die bundle – and I used that for the sentiment panel. As you can see, I used gold embossing powder for the sentiment – which comes from the Merriest Moments stamp set. I then added three of the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots in gold to that panel.

My layers went like this…

  • Thick very Vanilla card base
  • Gold Foil sheet adhered with liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal
  • Embossed panel in Very vanilla adhered with Seal+
  • Die cut in Very Vanilla adhered with many dimensionals – both mini and regular
  • Sentiment panel in Very vanilla adhered with dimensionals
Merriest Moments Bundle, inside.2

For the inside, on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock I stamped this sweet leaf spray in Soft Suede ink, then used the Soft Suede marker to make the squigly pattern . This was adhered to the inside of the card: liquid glue or Stampin’ Seal.

Merriest Moments Bundle.3

For ther envelope, I stamped the pine spray and the word JOY with Soft Suede ink and that was it! DONE!!! Oh I DID enjoy playing with this gorgeous bundle… can’t wait to play some more.
