Gold and Black Shimmer and Shine

Hi friends! 

I love using minimal color when I want to add lots of texture and dimension to my card, so today I want to share a classy and easy card using gold and black with just a touch of color from flowers! I'll be using Sweet Summer Bellflowers stamp and die set, She Endured 6x6 stamp, Ornate Negative Strip die, Tangerine and Sunshine Yellow pearls, gold embossing powder, and Copic markers! 

First, I grabbed a piece of black cardstock sized 5.5x4.25 and taped the lower third of it because I wanted to heat emboss the other two thirds of the card panel. I prepped my card panel with an anti-static tool, inked up the She Endured 6x6 background stamp with my embossing pad, and stamped the image onto the card panel. The tape protected part of the card panel from being embossed. Then I added gold embossing powder and heat set it. I removed the tape and die cut the lower third of the panel with the Ornate Negative die (from a previous release). Then I adhered the finished panel over a piece of gold cardstock so that you could see the gold showing through the holes of the ornate die! I finished the background panel with a thin strip of gold separating the die and embossing.

You can see all of that classy detail in the photo above! Once my background was completed and adhered to a 5.5x4.25 black card base, I heat embossed the 2 flowers from Sweet Summer Bellflowers stamp in gold powder and then colored them in shades of pink and yellow with my Copic markers. I die cut both flowers and adhered them over the black card panel, along with a sentiment from the same set that was also embossed in gold! The sentiment and one of the flowers were propped up using foam tape for dimension! I finished with pearls from the Tangerine and Sunlight Yellow set over one of the flowers! This card was very easy to complete, yet there is so much to it! The minimum use of color allows you to add lots of texture and dimension!
