Antique Gold ...

Hi Everybody,

This very simple has just an embossed  background that has been layered onto gold and I have used the M-Bossabilities folder Labels Thirty Four Medallions

Over the embossing I have rubbed gold gilding wax and then added  centre panels ...Labels Thirty Four and the Decorative Labels 34

Such a quick and easy way to make a card when time is of the essence.  The flower is one of the new Flower dies and this is the Rose

It has been added to the same gold card cut with the Bella Rose die and then the petals sparkled with a fine gold glitter.

The addition of a pearl flourish is the finishing touch and this card look much prettier in real life than the photo shows.

The butterfly started life in silver but with some gold embossing powder I changed the look to match my card.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  10. Fabulous card Christina and it looks anything but simple! Pat x

  11. Simple it may be but first you have to come up with the idea and put it into operation... always the difficult bits. You have excelled as always.

  12. Oops, my comment vanished again. I was saying that's a statement card, Christina. I guess when you break it down then it really is simple, however, it looks nothing like what I would call simple (like all my cards lol). Another stunner. xx

  13. This is a very elegant looking card...all the embellishments that you added is a perfect layout for the card...
    Well done Christina

  14. Beautiful card but I do love the red, blue etc. bright cards better. I sometimes have a hard time with men cards when I have to use browns and beige colours. Dianne Crowe

  15. Hi Christina another beautiful very elegant card. I love it.
    Kind regards

  16. What a lovely card. After receiving my Friday Freebie I can vouch for the fact that the cards are even better in real life. The colours are so much more intense and the die cuts and backgrounds are so detailed and beautiful. It makes a crafty person envious of all that talent :)

  17. The beautiful dies and embellishment look great on top of that gorgeous embossing. Well done!

  18. White and gold. Look so good. Together , reminds us christmas. Is getting closer lovley card

  19. Christina,
    Gorgeous card. Love the embossing accented with gilding wax, adds that elegance to a "simple" card. Great job.

  20. What a great inspiration. I think this would be lovely anniversary card. Thank you Christina.
