Pure Joy (CPS-145)

11 Dec

Got a chance to throw together a card from the CPS (Card Positioning System) sketch. If you click on the link, you’ll see it on the left side. Perfect for this time of year with Christmas right around the corner.




I began with the central star image and tried to give it some special effects. I cut S4-092 Stars Five (#5, largest) from F-004 Copper Premium Craft Foil. Then I removed the Magnetic Spacer Plate and added the Tan Embossing Pad. Placed the die template, turned over so the cut ridges face down. I added the brass stencil on top and placed the final White Master Mat. I ran it through the Wizard™ to emboss. Then I sanded it lightly on the top.

The cool thing about this technique is that not only do you have a fabulous embossed design on the star but you also get an embossed border around the star, giving it a very polished look. Remove the foil star and sand it lightly all over the top.

I cut/embossed the S4-105 Sleigh Ride die template (retired) from red striped paper. Then highlighted the embossed area in the sleigh with glitter pen and add Stickles to the rails.

I layered green patterned papers and added it to the card along with the foil star. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card and the sleigh and small star with dimensional adhesives. Voilá!

Fun, festive and fairly simple!
