Wondrous Gift of Gold


Wondrous Gift of Gold
Images © 1990-2007 Stampin' Up!


I received some new organdy ribbon in the mail and couldn't wait the play. The organdy ribbon has a beautiful metallic gold on the outer edge of the ribbon, so pretty. The ornaments for the tree are 1/4" circles, I used the end of a q-tip to put a small amount of Encore! gold ink and then sprinkled Iridescent Ice embossing powder over the top and heat set. I also used the Encore! ink and embossing powder for the sentiment.

Project Details
Stamps: Wondrous Gifts, Many Merry Messages
Ink: Versmark, Encore! Gold
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy
Other: Organdy Ribbon (May Arts), Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Burgundy Grosgrain Ribbon, Gold Embossing Powder, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder
Technique: Curled Paper Ribbons
Technique Tip: To create the curled paper ribbons, cut cardstock in 1 centimeter strips. Gently tie a knot or bow being careful not to tear the cardstock. Wrap the ends around a small round object (I use the paper piercing tool for my small ribbon curls, curled around the tip), pinch cardstock carefully around the object to secure the shape, and carefully release the paper.
