MFT September Creative Challenge - Gold Glitz

September 15, 2015

For this month's MFT DT Creative Challenge we are challenged to use GOLD on our projects. I use gold mostly for embossing. So I thought I would try a different way to incorporate it in my card this time.

It was a good opportunity for me to break the seal of Gold Foil Card Stock that I bought several months ago. I probably thought that I would use it for die-cut sentiments or something when I put it into my cart. But it never happened! LOL!

My inspiration for this card came from THIS photo I found on Pinterest.
I stamped a Smooth White panel with Striped Background stamp and Coral Crush pigment ink, and cut out a circle window from it using Circle STAX 2 Die-namics. I made a gold frame with Gold Foil Card Stock, Cross-Stitch Circle STAX Die-namics, and Circle STAX 1 Die-namics, and adhered it over the window.
The flowers and leaves are from Fall Florals stamp set. They were stamped onto the matching die-cut pieces with Summer Splash Hybrid ink, Tropical Teal Hybrid ink, and Fuse Green dye ink.

I stamped the sentiment from Thanks so Very Much set  with Chocolate Brown on a Smooth White panel, added a Gold Foil panel underneath it, then popped up the striped panel over it.

Head over to the MFT blog to see the other DT members have created for today!
