A Touch of Gold by Jo Simons

#couturecreationsaus


Hello lovelies!
Just a couple of cards to share today using the super neat Elegant Card Cuts dies.

Again a couple of simple cards using gold glitter cardstock and some gold mirror card.

Here is how I made one of the cards

Using the 6" x 6" Hearts Ease Paper pad I chose a base piece and then made my paper cluster.


I then die cut all my pieces.  I have used a new die from the Secret Garden Collection - Short Flower Basket and teamed it with the Tall Basket Flowers from the Kalini collection.  I also cut a doily from the Frames and Frills Collection - Elissa Set.  Originally I was going to also use the Honeypot die but you will see on the final card that I changed my mind.  Also when I cut the basket, I cut one out of thin cardboard too just to make it a little sturdier.


Next using some gold glitter cardstock I cut from the Vierge Square die.  Oh boy - this die is truly stunning.  Would look great as a background die for a photo on a scrapbook page!


I then started to layer up my card as you can see from the next few pics.



When I attached the basket I gently rolled it a little to give it a 3D look.
Here is the final card with a few gemstones and a sentiment stamp on from the Heats Ease Frames and Sentiments stamp set.



Here is a closer look at my other card.  This one didn't have any layers just let the gorgeous Barossa Frame die be the superstar on this card.  I teamed it with a doily (of course).  Its the Quaintly Queenie die from the Amaryllis collection.  The blossom in the middle is the beaded flower with script print. and I have added the Strawberry Leaf die too.  The sentiment was stamped with the Hearts Ease Frames and Sentiments set.


Happy crafting and until next time
