Black and Gold...

Happy Monday,

still a quick post but one of my favourite regal colour combinations Black and Gold! I really feel this has an opulent look to it!


I covered a piece of card with the gold metallic gilding sheets and embossed it with my Winter Trees embossing folder.  I added the die cuts in black using a gold marker pen between the dies to add the gold level this is a really cheat way to add different layers to your cards without adding height or weight!

I cut the Craft Too snowflakes ( from my recent shows) in gold scraper foil and sanded back the black giving a gilt metal look to the snowflakes.



Enjoy...

  13. Hi John. Love this card, but I particularly like the snowflakes. Not sure if it is the way the photograph has come across on the laptop, but they almost look as though they have been made out of acetate!
