Gold Birthday Card ~ Color Dare #459

 Here's another card for the Color Dare #459 Challenge of French Vanilla, Gold and Black. This is an amazing color combo! For the challenge you must use all 3 colors and no other colors! Only those 3. Make any paper craft you like. When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page:

I used one of our new stamp sets called Embroidered Card Front. It's so pretty! I only used the bottom half of the image and gold embossed it on black. I LOVE the look of the gold on black! Circle Thin Cut dies were used for the circle layers with more gold embossing on the black circle. 

The top half of the card front and the French Vanilla circle were spattered with Gilt Glossy Spray...also new to our catalog. I didn't spray but instead unscrewed the cap and tapped it on my finger to get the spatters. When you want more of a misty look spraying is the way to go. 

The black circle is popped up with a bit of foam tape so it was easy to add some Gold Thread for more eye appeal.

  1. Michelle another beautiful card. I wasn't real sure of that Triple Play colors; but everyone did such a good job on their cards.

  2. Love this one too! The background stamps wok so well with the gold embossing.

  3. Another beautiful card. I am rather partial to a coloured card base, especially black! X

  4. Very clever cutting the embossed section in half! Another lovely card!
