Hello. A new challenge is starting at Cardz 4 Galz, and this time we want to see your girlie makes using silver and/or gold. Here is my card:
I knew I wanted to use both gold and silver and was trying to decide how to do that. Until I did, I stamped and die-cut the roses and leaves from Altenew ‘Antique Roses‘. The roses using four blue layers, but for the leaves, I stamped the base layer in a brown, then I heat embossed the second layer using gold embossing powder. I didn’t do the third layer on the leaves.
I went hunting for some different leaves, and used some from Altenew ‘Budding Thanks‘ – again using a brown base layer and heat embossing the second layer.
I still didn’t know how I was going to incorporate silver – until me eyes fell into my ‘newbi’ basket, (bought not used or catalogued yet) and I saw the Pink Fresh Studio ‘Slim Diagonal Stripes die’. Although it is sized for the slimline card – I cut it down to create the middle section you see here – and used a matt silver instead of a shiny silver card stock.
I went searching though my Color My Life app for the word ‘gorgeous’ as I wanted a striking sentiment to match the quite dramatic card, and decided to use this sentiment from Catherine Pooler – in my stash – and thankfully catalogued into the app – so heat embossed in the same gold as the leaves.
I hope you can come and join us for this challenge – I foresee a lot of shiny Christmas cards in the making – I hope to see you there. xx
