Hi guys, I hope you are having a fantastic Monday! Today’s card is such an inspired-by card. Recently, Debby from Lime Doodle Design shared a few cards with Kraft-Black and hints of white+gold. I am so completely smitten by those that I had to use that color combo and make it mine. And when I started playing with these delicate little dot ovals from the Modern Essentials collection from Spellbinders, that is what I had on my mind.
Here is the result:
A clean, modern look. I started by trimming down a rectangle of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to be smaller than my 5×7 card. On this, I adhered three ovals like you see here using a washi tape (any low-tack tape would do). I hot foiled it with the Champagne foil (my favorite gold foil).
Next steps were really easy peasy. I used MISTI to stamp my floral cluster from Spellbinders Feather stamp-and-die set (linked below). I used Simon Says Stamp black ink and stamped it twice. I also stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Look for the Rainbows stamp set. For tiny little embellishments, I added a twine bow at the top and a fluttering butterfly towards the bottom.
And just because all this felt too simple, I went around the kraft frame with my gold paint pen. Just to accentuate the edges. And lastly foam mounted it on my cardbase.
To change things up, I went with a little more artistic look with the next one (hint: added splatters :D)
Almost identical steps and technique – except on this one, I did leave the slight overfoiling be and added lots of splatters with white gesso, onyx liquid pearls and gold dust stickels. Also, I used one die and another glimmer plate when foiling the ovals – yes, you can use dies to foil on the glimmer hot foil system!!!
Love how the delicate dots add so much beautiful details to these cards. As usual, I have linked to all supplies below. In case you have any questions, don’t hesitate to comment below.
