You are Gold...

Happy Thursday,

A different card today with Gold on Gold on Gold but I have to admit i love the different shades of the gold card I have used including a little gilt metal.


















The centre panel of this card is made with adding gold metal sheets to card then embossing the piece with my winter trees embossing folder.

I embossed a piece of old gold card using my confetti frame and I rubbed black ink over the surface to darken the colour and make the embossing show.

The next layer is gold mirror card embossed this time with my Star stream embossing folder.  I finished the card with layers of gold in the old gold, mirror card and a little vintage gold to add further light and shade.

The poinsettias are cut in Kraft card and I added gold pen around weach of the die cuts so that they match the gold on gold theme.  I added holly leaves in gold mirror card and an ombre ribbon from my stash.

Enjoy...
