Kraft, white and gold

I love color. Truly do. But occasionally I get an itch to just do neutral / whites, with just a hint of metallic. That is how today’s card came to be.

First of all I die cut a piece of kraft cardstock using largest of the stitched rectangle dies from SSS. {I consider this die set a staple in my crafting. It gives a nice finished look to the card panels.}

Next I dry embossed the cut out rectangle using Square Border embossing folder from Darice. For dry embossing, I simply put my cardstock piece in between the flaps of the embossing folder and ran it through my Sizzix die cutting machine on tab 1.

Once I had my frame done, I went around it and added floral images from ‘Look for the miracles’ stamp set by SSS. I started by using my powder tool on a little area. This prevents the embossing powder from sticking to places I don’t want them to stick to. I used versa mark ink to stamp the images and then heat embossed it using opaque white embossing powder from Zing. To save some time, I mounted several of the stamps at the same time on my MISTI door and stamped them all at once. I repeated this on the top and bottom of my frame.

Once all the floral images were heat embossed, I added my main sentiment ‘Look for the miracles’ in the center of the frame and heat embossed it with Martha Stewart antique gold embossing powder.

The floral images from this set have nice lines and ridges. I went in between those with my stardust glitter pen and added gold sparkle to match the gold embossed sentiment. I also added some gold / white gems and gold twine with a bow.
