Hi Card --- Embossing On Wood Veneer Shapes

This month's card kit from Studio Calico is amazing.  I've fallen in love with the ribbon that is included.  I've been obsessing a little over black and white stripes lately…and this ribbon only fed that obsession.  I wanted to use it as a focal point on my card.

As usual, I thought it would be fun to add some gold accents….and while I really wanted to add some gold stitching to the front of my card, I couldn't remember how to refill my bobbin on my sewing machine {I've never claimed to be a seamstress}.  So I chose to use embossing powder to make my wood veneer stars gold…and I also made some gold paper to sit behind my sentiment too!

I have a video below, walking you through the entire creation of this card.  I've also included links to the supplies used in this project below.

The Penny Arcade Kits and add ons will be available for purchase to subscribers starting at noon EST today.  For the rest of the world, you can purchase the kits beginning at midnight!  These kits sell out fast.  And if you love the Studio Calico kits as I do, I would recommend that you subscribe so you don't miss a single bit of goodness.

Penny Arcade Projects --- Studio Calico July Release

It’s the 27th of the month, and you know what that means!  The new Studio Calico kit is here!  July’s kit is called Penny Arcade.  I think you’re going to love what’s inside.  These kits really fired up my inspiration, and I ended up making 11 cards…in one day.  Surely, this kit will get your creative juices flowing.

I addition to the main card kit, I also made some projects with the card add on called Pinball, and the stamp add ons called Churros and the Birthday Stamp Set and Craft Die.  I’ve included photos of all of my projects below.

I think my favorite part of the main kit this month is the ribbon.  I’ve had a slight obsession lately with black and white stripes…and this ribbon is to die for!  I was able to incorporate it on several of my projects.

These kits are available for subscribers starting at noon EST on the 27th.  Everyone else can buy these kits at midnight.  Be sure to get yours while you can.  These kits tend to sell out fast.

I love having these kits delivered every month to my door.  A fresh collection of coordinating papers, embellishments and stamps never fails to keep me creating.  Subscribe now so you don’t miss any of these kits!

I have linked the products used in these projects below.  I also have a how to video featuring this card, using only the main card kit, Penny Arcade.  To see the video, go to this post on myblog.  I'll also show you how I made the wood veneer stars gold!

And don't miss this new item as well!  What an awesome die!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired by something you’ve seen here.  Have a fabulous day!
