Black & Gold
Good Morning Ladies,
Thank you for stopping by today.
I chose to use my favourite Californian Collection for this
card, Creative Expressions, I also used the Italian Border and The gorgeous Delicate Daisies, designed by Sue Wilson.
I started by Embossing a piece of white card with the Heart Lattice Embossing Folder from Creative Expressions, I matted and layered with black card and a soft gold shimmer card. I then cut two Italian Borders in each colour and intertwined them down the side of the card, I used the Matting Basics A & B set of the Californian Collection and matted and layered those with both colour cards, I stamped my sentiment on black card and heat embossed with Gold Cosmic shimmer detail powder, I have to add here that these Embossing Powders are amazing, the do actually pick up the tiniest of detail, I die cut this and added as the focal point.
I tied a bow using gold silky crush ribbon, added a dazzler and stick pins, one of which I made to compliment the colours of the card! what do you think?
at the top side of the card I arranged the die cut
Delicate Daisies on top of some black Impression Obsession Leafy Branch Die cuts (just to lift them off of the base colour, so that they stood out a bit more). I added a flat back black pearl to the centre of each of them to tie in the black.
I welcome your comments, I love reading them,
I hope you are having a relaxed weekend.
