Good morning all, I hope you have had a good weekend. I didn't get any crafty time this weekend, but we did go out with my son and daughter-in-law for a pub lunch yesterday, and it was delicious.
Today's card was meant to be all black and gold, but somehow ended up with red too. It's a combination I don't often use, but I do think it works.
I started with the background and used a couple of the new A6 background stamps from Crafti Potential at Craftstash. I bought these a few weeks ago, and must admit I really like them. The ones I got are called, Quatrefoil and Fleur De Lis, and as you can see, the Fleur De Lis is designed to fit inside the Quatrefoil.
I heat embossed these using Versamark Ink and Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder from Creative Expressions on to black card. Then using the Altenew Layering Rose Die, from a recent craft magazine, I cut the flower and leaves from gold and black card.
I used an A6 red aperture card blank and popped the background inside, then added the flower and leaves in the bottom corner. I wasn't sure which sentiment to use, but in the end went for the Celebrate word die from Clearly Besotted.
I used the die to draw an outline on black card and cut this out by hand, and then added the red die-cut word on top. Then I finished off with a few red pearls.
Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
