Working through a scrap pile can turn into something quite lovely. This gold foil was left over from a Christmas card kit from nearly three years ago if you can believe that. It worked well with another kit also left over. Cleaning up and making a beautiful card, sounds like a win to me.
The card front was made with coordinating stamps from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set. The solid flower was stamped first in night of navy fairly far apart. That is a lot of dark ink there. Then, with the outline stamp of the same flower I went all over the place using gold ink. I knew it would even show up over the navy flowers. I love the look of layered stamping.
It wasn’t quite enough, so I continued with heavy sponging around the edges until I was satisfied. The gold foil paper was put through the Big Shot using the elegant dots embossing folder. A nice touch for sure. Those two pieces were layered on top of another piece of night of navy and then placed on a navy card base. The inside got a lighter version of the same treatment and I was nearly done.
I had to put a bunch of large basic pearls in the centers of the flowers, because I couldn’t leave well enough alone. That ensured this would be a hand delivered card instead of mailed, but it was worth it. They did have a difficult time sticking to the edge flowers that had already been inked. But with a little first pressure they stayed put.
Have a creative day!
