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.
