A Very Special Invitation

I know I used a bunch of retired product, but I still love it too!  The wonderful thing about tools is that you can use them again and again no matter how long you have them.  This stamp set and coordinating embossing folder are retired Christmas product.  I think they are still beautiful and perfectly wonderful for this project.  So there, use the product you have and love!


These were special handouts for a Sunday church lesson I taught to a group of 14 & 15 year old girls.  They are so dear to my heart, I can’t help myself but make them something special every time I teach.

I embossed my card front after I did my stamping.  The stamp is photopolymer, so exact placement was super easy.  Then I centered my folder just where I wanted it to be.  I traveled through my framelit collection to find one that had the shape to match the background stamp and my sentiment stamp.  Of course it was the last one I looked at.  But it was a perfect fit.  A touch of sponging on the diecut piece and it was done.

I did get the cording out and do a few loops of it behind my card front.  After I had placed my dimensionals behind my diecut, I looped the cording and set it on the exposed sticky side.  I added a couple of glue dots over the top and stuck it down on the card front.  No problems there!  The cording wants to loop because it is stored on a spool.  Even better!]
