Elegant CAS Card...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!!

 I thought I would share an Elegant CAS Thank you card!

I don't know about you - but sometimes you just need a
Quick card - Also an Elegant one at that!
Sometimes all you need is a Beautiful Stamped Sentiment and
some Beautiful papers to make it happen!!

That's where this card comes into play!!

I'm using the Thank You (2873-J) Stamp set

From Victorine Originals and some Beautiful 
papers from DCWV (Lilac Love)

I started out by grabbing the pretty papers and deciding on the
stamp I planned to use - Then I grabbed a Stitched Scallop
border die and cut out enough room so
my large sentiment would fit nicely onto my card front

Knowing that my Designer paper had gold foil on it
I knew I wanted my sentiment to POP with gold as well
So I stamped my sentiment right onto the
paper with some versamark ink then
added my fine gold embossing powder 

I carefully heated up my sentiment with my heat tool
only heating up small sections at a time
(I didn't want to warp) my Elegant paper with the heat

It came out PERFECTLY! I was so excited to 
see the transformation of the gold embossing (Who Doesn't?)

After I let it cool for a minute I wanted to add a 
Stitched Rectangle border around my design
for a nice finished off look
Then I added a piece of White Fun Foam
behind my card front and set it off to the side for a minute

While the card front was very pretty - my plain white
card base didn't do it justice -
So I decided to add foil to it!

I folded my Card front in half and 
I adhered some Scor Tape all around the border
on the front of my card

Then I grabbed a piece of Gold Foil from
my stash and laid it right on top 
of the adhesive - I used my Bone Folder
to rub the foil into the adhesive
(making sure it would stick)

Then peeled off my gold foil - to find
a beautiful gold foil frame!

Now that I was happy to have the foil frame
it was time to adhere the card front to my card base
and Voila My card Shimmers and shines with gold!!!

I added some gold sequins and a Prima
Flower I found in my stash!
