Silver and Gold — Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly Technique Blog Hop. This month we are featuring ways of using Silver and Gold as our technique.

I love pairing Silver and Gold together so this hop is exciting! I also love the look of dry embossing on our foil cardstocks. So with that in mind I got busy creating. 

I experimented a bit with which way to use the Silver and Gold as my layers. Ultimately I decided to use Silver as the accent as you can see. I die cut a small piece of Silver and adhered it to the Gold then put the layers in the folder for embossing. I love the way the die cut edges look between the layers. It's so much better than just straight cut pieces.

Once it was embossed and adhered to the card front I added some accents with Glitter Glue. It's a small touch but really does add a lot to the overall look. With the beauty of the card front I decided a sentiment would not add to the look and kept that part for the inside of the card. Sometimes you just need to let the card front speak for itself.
