I have been so excited about this challenge since June when I posted out a surprise to the INKspired team, they all received a share of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for this blog hop. It is a paper that has printed designs with gold foil on one of the sides, I like that it has so many options to get creative or just use the paper for a quick card.
I played around with a few different papers and ended up using my Stampin’ Blends to colour one of the gold foil printed sheets in Seaside Spray from the flowers and Crumb Cake in the background. Using a Circles Die I cut the section I wanted to showcase on the card, I do think what makes it pop is the Gold Foil cut from Hippo & Friends Dies.
I really do like how simple this card is, I have added a ‘my friend’ greeting from Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. I stole a few Gold Gilded Gems from Mum/Stamping Barb in the catalogue they did not look overly impressive so I never ordered them but I am now. Thanks for sharing your goodies with me, Mum.
Inside the card. I have fussy cut some of the flowers and added a greeting from Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set.
