#325 – Black and Gold

Hello! Inspired by the color combination of black and gold in one of my own previous card, I tried out a couple of other projects!

Black & Gold (Happy Birthday)For this really really simple card, I first embossed the background using Spellbinders M-bossabilities Flower Fun embossing folder. I then die cut the doily from Brustro Iridescent gold metallic paper using Waffle Flower Doily Circle. The sentiments are from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint die & stamp sets. I then added three clear sequins to embellish (can you see them?? :P).

For my second card, I first adhered some washi tape with little gold hearts in it on the card base. Then I die cut circles using We R Memory Keepers Nesting Circles on another card panel. I cut the sentiment using Paper Trey Ink Good Times from black card stock and orange foam sheet and adhered them all together. Also used quite a few sequins and rhinestones as embellishment.

Black & Gold (Celebrate)I love how the orange foam gives kind of a glow to the sentiment! πŸ˜€ Here’s a close up –
