For the love of… gold


How about a card that features a bit of gold? I don’t use gold very often and I think I need to change that. Loving how the following card turned out. Let me know what you think of it!


Card details: Stamped background image in Versamark on Icy Mint cardstock and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Cut 6 squares from cardstock, each one 1.5" x 1.5". Sponged the edges with Distress Ink and mounted on a Peanut Cluster panel using foam dimensionals. Embellished with Gold Liquid Pearls, sequins and a bit of jute string. Die cut a butterfly (Butterflies dies from TE) from blue cardstock and embellished with enamel dots before adhering to the card front with dimensional tape. Finished by adhering the main panel to a white card base using more foam tape.
