Gold cardstock can add such a pretty accent to just about any type of card. I think the Currency Cover Gold is particularly lovely with leaves. For my project today, I wanted to combine gold with another bright color. So, I started off by die-cutting some leaves with Currency Cover Gold as my starting point. I then did a quick search on some color combinations and saw some great options with blue and gold.
I ran my Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad across this gorgeous butterfly stamp using my Misti. Then, I re-stamped it with Versamark and heat-embossed it with clear powder. The clear embossing really makes the ink colors “pop.”
After trimming out my butterfly, I stapled my gold leaves to a die-cut circle I embossed using the Woven embossing folder from Sizzix. I used Environment Desert Storm card stock for the circle.
I added everything to a panel of Cougar White Super Smooth card stock (which I die cut with a rounded rectangle die). Then, I added a sentiment from Avery Elle and popped it up onto a folded Cougar A2 notecard with some foam tape.
I have a video HERE outlining my process.
