I have a pretty simple but dramatic card to share with you using silver foiling and gold embossing on a black card base. Take a look...
I'll apologize up front for my photography skills...I always thought WOS and glitter were hard to photograph, but Silver & Gold on black is even harder! The shimmer from the silver foiling and the shine of the gold embossing in real life is much brighter!! But anyway, I started with a black card base, and then added a panel of black that I foiled in silver using The Greetery's Deco Triangles Hot Foil Plate. (I added foam strips behind this layer to add some dimension from the card base.) For my next layer, I used one of The Greetery's Deco Frame Dies and also foiled that in silver, before adding foam strips and adding it over the first layer. (Did you know that you can use your dies to foil with? The outlines are not as bold as an actual foiling plate, but it still comes out shiny just like regular foiling. Try experimenting with some of your dies to stretch their use even more...it's FUN!!) For my sentiment, I used The Greetery's Everyday Labels stamp set, and embossed it in gold and then used the coordinating die to cut it out. I die cut 2 extra of the sentiment shapes to add a bit of sturdiness to this layer before attaching it to the 2nd layer.
To finish my card I added a few silver & gold pearls from PFS. This will be going to my brother who has a December birthday, so I refrained from adding any more bling or anything else to dress it up! :0)
There is lots of FABULOUS inspiration from the DT using Silver & Gold, so check it all out right HERE and then play along.
