Antique Gold and White

Hi Everybody,

I was asked to make this card for a wedding that is coming up soon.

It is in an antique gold and white color with beautiful ivory and white flowers added.

I used the Heirloom Rectangles from the Victorian Collection and if you ordered these dies from last weeks Create and Craft show then you have probably got them by now.

I have used the same die to create the aperture in the box lid and then lined it with Acetate.

I computer generated the sentiment and a small greeting for the inside which is added to a little pocket made from the same die.

Both card and box have been decorated with white and gold ribbon  and a lovely gold centre has been added to cover the knot.  I have lined the box with gold tissue paper that matches the card

Tomorrow is Card Class Day and my ladies are going to be working with the Glass Effects  die that I showed you a couple of weeks ago to create an unusual kind of card.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. What an absolutely stunning card that they are sure to love. Also watched one of your shows with Dean and loved this die, but will have to wait until I can get it from my usual supplier in the USA. You were really great in the show & are now a real pro!

  10. Hi Christina,
    A beautiful card, I loved this die too but left it to late to get this one, I did get 6 which I am really happy with and will try and get some more later. Loved all the demos, it was great to be able to watch you working, one of the dies I got was Painted Lady.
    Keep up the good work with your stunning cartdfs.

  14. Good afternoon Christina,
    What a beautiful card this die makes and in such a lovely colour of gold. I like the more muted or brushed effect of the metals as they look so much softer and not harsh. I love how we are getting more dies that can actually make shaped cards in the filigree designs as they make beautiful, different works of art.
    thank you,
    Love and crafty hugs
