Golden Congrats…..

A little more crafty playing yesterday to create this card:

I began by picking the colours out for the current Color Throwdown Challenge and then browsing the ‘Color My Life’ app for ideas. I had no idea where I wanted to go with these colours.

I decided to use these new-to-me dies from Honey Bee Stamps to create a couple of bells, which I die cut and created first. I then decided I wanted a dry embossed background, so turned to one of my favourite embossing folders from Stampin Up.

I wanted a gold layer beneath the embossed layer, so after cutting the panel, I die cut the sentiment – from Lawn Fawn – out of the middle, then layered the two panels together, adding to the card base with 3D foam.

I played with the placement of the bells, but thought a little more dimension was needed, so I used two ovals from a Gina K Designs Master Layouts set, and stuck everything down as you see.

The sentiment was added, but only after I had layered the gold with a couple of white die cuts.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Color Throwdown – gold, pink, ice blue

CYHTP – embossing folder, option of Christmas not taken

Inkspirational – prompt word – gold

Dragonfly Dreams – anything but Christmas

Crafters Café – anything goes
