Welcome to A Crowning Creation and the Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop – Punch It Out! If you’re new to my page, welcome! I am always excited you are here and this month you’ll get to see lots of punches used. I hope you find these projects in our blog hop fun and inspiring; you are going to love seeing all these projects made with any of our fabulous punches.
Trust me, you’re lovely for sure! This was a fun card to make, especially if you like to color, because that is what I did. This gorgeous Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper made it easy with this gold on white paper pattern. I just used a Stampin’ Write Marker and colored in some of the flowers to coordinate with the Melon Mambo cardstock. Just a little coloring tip: is you use Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, the color you use will go right over the gold and diminish it, so do a test first.
Not a lot of coloring, just enough to add some interest and get your attention. But then, the showstopper is all the lovely in the middle. I used some of the Forever Gold Laser-cut Paper for some wow factor and layered it with a sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set. It was stamped with Memento ink on Whisper White cardstock. Punching both ends of the paper with the Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch, layering again with a piece of Basic Black cardstock and just an extra touch of vellum really makes it look terrific.
To finish it off, a trio of InColor Enamel Dots pulls it all together. I love the way it came out.
I’m certain you could easily make this card, too. Let me know if you are inspired.
And, if you like this Forever Gold Laser-cut look, here is another card you might enjoy.
