Gold Embossed Bouquet

I am doing the mental moon walk here -- think this may be a CAS card {finally}! Why are CAS cards so hard for me? This time I made up my mind to just stop, use lots of white space, stop, walk away, deep breathe, and leave it alone LOL.

I stamped Spring Blossoms from Flourishes (won a stamp set from them THANK YOU FLOURISHES) in VersaMark, sprinkled detail gold embossing powder, hit it with the heat tool, then colored in with Copics and Spectrum Noir.

Happy accident: cut the yellow layer incorrectly, so just used two squares of it, pop dots behind it, scored the main card and added three pearls. PAU (pronounced POW in Hawai'ian = done, finished!)

  1. Very pretty, Rosy! CAS is tough for me rocked this one!

  2. Rosy....this is super fantastic and so beautifully done with the gold and your coloring. You really made it clean and simple but filled with elegance. I just love it.

  3. Gorgeous Rosy! I love reading how another cardmaker 'saves' a mistake. This was a great idea, looked fabulous, and had you not explained, just would have thought it was a designed look. This is a beautiful stamp image, and you really colored it up so wonderfully well. PAU. I like adding to my vocabulary too! TFS & Hugs

  4. What an absolutely beautiful, elegant card Rosy. The gold embossing powder really sets off the image and turns the card from a lovely card to an elegant beautiful card. I love it. I will need to get some colouring tips from you Rosy, you have to give me some tutorials, please ...................................... Hugs, Jen :-) xxxx
