Gold Bird

I'm thrilled to be staying on the Christmas Challenge Design Team for Happy Little Stampers for another six months.  The challenge for July is:


My favourite way to add gold to a card is with gold heat embossing.  I kept my card very simple - just gold and white.

I wanted the borders for my sentiment and focal panel to match the gold embossing on the bird and "joy" so rubbed the edges of the border pieces with ink and sprinkled on the same embossing powder

I used an embossing folder for my background that I thought really went well with the snowflake flourish that is part of the bird stamp.

Come and join us during the month of July and show us your Christmas cards featuring "gold".   Happy Little Stampers is offering a prize for the best card.


And be sure to check back on August 5th for the next challenge!





Supplies:
Stamps - Inkadinkado bird, Rubber Soul joy
Ink - ColorBox gold
Paper - white cs
Size - A2
Accessories -Cuttlebug embossing folder, gold embossing powder, Nesties circle dies

This is so pretty Susan and I love the richness of the gold against the pure white card! Great idea to emboss your card edges to match.

This is so gorgeous and elegant. The swirls in the embossing and the bird work so well together. The gold embossing is fabulous. So happy to be on this new DT with you.
