Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday For Unto Us Card

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! For Unto Us:

The recipe:

Card base: Night of Navy 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Mat: Very Vanilla 4 x 5-1/4

DSP panel: Brightly Gleaming 3-7/8 x 5-1/8

Art piece: 1- Copper Foil Sheet and 2- Night of Navy  3-3/8 x 4-1/8

Sentiment: Very Vanilla 1-1/2 x 3-3/4 punched with the Triple Banner Punch

The details:


  • Emboss the art piece with the Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder
  • Glue your art  piece onto the other two pieces of 3-3/8 x 4-1/8 Night of Navy card stock

 The sentiment:


  • Stamp your sentiment using the greeting from the For Unto Us stamp set with Versa Mark Ink
  • Heat emboss with Copper Emboss Powder

Putting the card together:


  • Adhere you Brightly Gleaming DSP to the Very Vanilla mat
  • Wrap a piece of Basket Weave Metallic Copper Ribbon about  1-7/8 inches from the bottom around the matted DSP panel
  • Adhere the panel to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere your stacked panel embossed piece to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Attach your sentiment with glue dots

Finishing touches:

  • Adhere a Basket Weave Metallic Copper bow to the left side of the sentiment
  • Attach a few Star Designer Element to the sky of the art piece and one to the right side of the sentiment

  3. Karen Andrews says:

    This card is stunning.
    Did you attach the copper piece to the 2 navy pieces to give it support or just to make the piece thicker?

    • Kristi says:

      Karen, I attached the copper piece to the extra card stock for stability but also for added dimension. I like the added depth this provided to the card.
