White and Gold friend...

Happy Wednesday,

An effective simple coloured Friend card today that showcases the beautiful dies with a soft gold.  The centre piece in gold is a technique I have used on a Christmas card sample I have made however you will have to wait a few weeks until I show this fully (it's a little early yet for my Christmas stuff!)

Suffice to say Its really easy to do!
The background is the mask simply inked through using a soft gold pigment ink pad.  Then the foam mounted collection of elegant ovals with a gold embossed friend across the front.  There is a little gold cord tied in a bow behind the sentiment making a simple card.

Spellbinders elegant ovals
Sue Wilson Californian collection background die
gold mirror card
white PMD hammered card
DoCrafts Friend stamp (Love Notes)
Liquid Pearls
Creative Expressions micro Beads
Imagination Crafts Leaf Swirl mask

I love the simple elegance of the ovals when they are cut and embossed in white and layered with foam tape, the dots of gold liquid pearls really brings out the embossing.

  4. Hola John
    Absolutely gorgeous! Love that leaf mask design. How do you stop your pigment ink from smudging as mine stays active for days (I only use it to heat emboss because of this)
    Have a great day.
