A little gold...
Well I thought it was time for a little gold, did I say little this card seems to drip gold but hopefully in a tasteful way. I think its the background that really stands out in this card.
I stared by stamping the stunning butterfly background from justrite in perfect medium onto coconut white foundation card. I then added the new Cosmic Shimmer Gold sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. This background is a negative so the pattern is revealed in the backing card with the gold area framing the pattern. I then hand cut this into this fall shape. The great thing about stamps, and backgrounds in particular, is that you don't have to use these as they stamp you can cut them out or into them. This to me at least makes these so flexible.
Next I added a bow made form gold silky crush ribbon with a black seam binding bow on top. I added one of the diamante and pearl embellishment from the Always and forever collection by Craft Consortium ( these were on the Wedding show with Julia Watts last week).
A few layers of black and white and finished perfect for a golden wedding or other occasion but definitely a statement card!
