I have paired the beautiful gold foiled designer paper with Night of Navy and Crushed Curry Cardstock. The foiled paper is absolutely beautiful!

For this first card I have picked out the Gold Foil and cut a border with with this really pretty die! I have cut the border in the gold foil, but also cut the designer paper with the border die. This was to slot the pattern from the die against the paper.

The Crushed Curry flowers are die cut from three separate flowers (there is a small, medium and large flower). I have die cut and then scrunched the paper and layered the flowers together. The centre of the flowers are using the BEAUTIFUL Gilded Gems Embellishments

For the second cars I have used the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder which is a pattern of small pretty flowers and leaves. The Night of Navy frame has been cut using just one of the dies in this bundle.

I have stamped the image onto Night of Navy and Whisper White using Versamark and Gold Embossed both images. I have fussy cut out the Navy image and popped this up on to the front of the card with dimensionals. I have then cut out the 4 flowers in White and paper-pieced these back over the top of the image.

I have again used the single flower dies and cut lots out of Crushed Curry Cardstock. I have scrunched them and layered them together adding the Gilded Gems Embellishments to the flower centres. These are my NEW favourite embellishment – I seriously can’t get enough of them!!

If you have time to make a comment, I would love to hear from you & I will pick out a name at random to send out one of these cards to.
