Today’s card is a product of the Clean and Simple Boutique Cards class.   I combined several of the techniques.

My background is a repeated stamping from Altenew’s Painted Butterflies.   I stamped the outline in Caramel Toffee, and the inside of the butterfly with Warm Sunshine and Peach Perfect inks.   The diagonal strip is made from a 1-1/4 inch cut from gold foil, and a 1 inch strip cut from a gold vellum (both from my stash).  The sentiment, from the Halftone Circles stamp set, was stamped in a sepia Versafine and embossed in a gold detail embossing powder.  I was concerned that the gold embossed would not show on a gold background so used the colored ink to make it darker.

The panel was cut using a stitched frame die and mounted with foam on a GinaKDesigns Honey Mustard card base.

The details of this card is what makes it stand out.  The gold on gold on gold diagonal strip brings such a rich touch to the card.

Thank you for stopping by and I will be back soon.

Hugs – Mary Kay
