For Unto Us card #1

The stamp set For Unto Us have verses from some of your favorite Christmas hymns. I used the sentiment “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” for this card. I used Very Vanilla Thick card stock cut to 8-1/2 X 5-1/2 scored at 4-1/4. Then I used three colors of foil, gold, copper and silver cut to 4 X 1-3/4. I also used a scalloped circle of gold foil cut using the Layering Circles Dies.

I arranged the three colors of foil with the silver in the middle and the copper on the left hand side. Turn them over and tape them together. Emboss them with the Evergreen Embossing Folder. (Make sure that the foil side of the paper is on the side of the folder with the Stampin’ UP! logo on it.)

I adhered Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon across the card and adhered the foil to the card base.

I embossed the “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock using gold embossing powder. I cut it out using a 2-1/4 diameter die from the Layering Circles Dies set. I adhered the embossed circle to the gold, scalloped circle. I used dimensionals to raise the sentiment up when a assembled the card. I cut a short piece of ribbon and tied it in a single knot to the ribbon on the card.

Tips and Tricks: When trying to line up the two circles, bend the sentiment slightly so that the middle is bowed up. Lay the sentiment on top of the scalloped circle. Move them around until the circles are lined up, then push the sentiment down to adhere it.
