Gold Embossed Graceful Garden Rose

  • Gold Embossed Powder Pink Rose
  • Join us for the June 25 card class

Gold Graceful Garden

Today's card uses the beautiful Graceful Garden set again.  This set includes an elegant design element that adds a point of interest to any card.  I used gold embossing on the Very Vanilla cardstock on all of the images including the sentiment, which gives this card an elegant look that would be perfect for a special Anniversary or a Wedding.  This card made me think of my parents 50th wedding anniversary.  I'm sending it to my mom to tell here how happy I was that she married my dad and that they spent over 50 years of together.  

I used the new In Color, Powder Pink for my basecard, and water colored the rose with Powder Pink ink and an Aqua Painter.  Because the rose was embossed in Gold, it was easy to color without smearing any of the stamped lines.  The leavers were colored in Old Olive.

 The sentiment is also embossed in gold.  It uses the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and I used the matching Duet Banners punch to create the sentiment piece.  This is such a versatile sentiment set with over 45 sentiment, 3 banners that work with the Duet Banners punch and one that works with the Classic Label punch.  If you haven't looked at the Thoughtful Banners sentiment set closely, you'll be surprised at how much use you would get out of this one sentiment set.  

I fussy cut the rose out by hand and popped it up on Dimensionals.  The new mini Dimensionals were perfect for the stem.  No need to mess with cutting full size dimensionals in half any more!!   

This final photo, below, captures more of the shine from the gold embossing.  If you like sparkle -- and who among us doesn't -- try gold heat embossing with this stamp set.  You're sure to love it and who ever receive your card will be impressed with the time you took to make them such a special hand made card.
