Golden Goodness

Hi All!

The card I have for you today is chock-full of all kinds of golden goodness!  Glitter gold foil paper....what could be better?  I saw this card by Kelly Lunceford and just had to recreate.

The stamp set used for the gold embossing is called Dotty Angles.  It has these polka dots and another image with small triangles (think circa 1984).  I've had this set forever and just hadn't found the perfect card to use it with.

I loved her card in pink, but wanted to give it a try with an alternative too.  This card uses Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana. I let my workshop girls know how very special they were, as I was sharing some of my last sheets of the Coastal Cabana with them.  But, I couldn't these colors together.

The Stampin' Glitter creates the perfect amount of dazzle to your card.  But, you cannot use it alone. You also need to have the Heat & Stick Powder and a Versamark pad.  Following is the process:

  • Rub cardstock with Embossing Buddy {prevents extra powder/glitter from sticking}
  • Stamp image with Versamark
  • Add Heat & Stick powder to your image
  • Heat with the Heat Tool
  • Add Stampin' Glitter to the heated image
  • Heat once again with the Heat Tool
