Some images just beg to be embossed. The beautiful rose stems, from the Flowering Blooms set on page 70 of the current Annual Catalog, is just one of those images. (Hurry! It's retiring!)

Stamped in VersaMark ink, then heat embossed iin gold embossing powder, enabled this image to be a wonderful focal point.

One of the designs from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper on page 148 of the Annual Catalog makes a simply beautiful background for the rose. (But hurry! It's retiring!)

The simple sentiment, also embossed in gold, comes from the Itty Bitty Grettings set on page 44 of the Annual Catalog. (Hurry! It's retiring!)

Following I will treat you to a tutorial on how to recreate this card. But HURRY! Several of the products are retiring!!

Brushed gold cardstock (non-Stampin' Up!)
Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (page 184, Annual Catalog -- retiring!)
Basic White cardstock

Flowering Blooms (page 70, Annual Catalog -- retiring!)
Itty Bitty Greetings (page 44, Annual Catalog -- retiring!)

VersaMark ink

Heat Tool 
Gold Embossing Powder
Die Cutting machine
Stitched Rectangles dies (page 183, Annual Catalog)
Gold Metallic Pearls (page 156, Annual Catalog -- in the new catalog!)

This card base is not Stampin' Up!. Sorry. It is a brushed gold cardstock that measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and creased at the center.

Onto this gold card base, adhere a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper from the Forever Greenery pack.

On a scrap of white cardstock, stamp the roses from the Flowering Blooms set in VersaMark ink. Cover the stamping with gold embossing powder. Use the heat tool to heat the embossing..

Use the die that measures 1 5/8" x 3 5/8" from the Stitched Rectangles set to cut out the embossed roses.

Add this to a piece of the brushed gold cardstock that measures 2" x 4". Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere this to the card front, leaving about 1" of space at the bottom of the DSP.

On a 1/2" x 1 3/8" piece of white cardstock, stamp a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings set in VersaMark ink and emboss it in gold to match the roses. Add this to the bottom of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Add three of the Gold Metallic Pearls to the white surrounding the roses.
