Mr. & Mrs. Gold Card - PPA185

This card I made for Paper Pals Art Sketch Challenge is packed full of embossing!!! I embossed the background, the gold strip of paper, the sentiment and the frame around the sentiment. I am sure it would have been a lot easier if I just had Stampin' Up's gold foil paper, but what fun would that be? ;) 

This is not my usual style of card, and I rarely use gold but I am very happy with out it turned out. I just wish I could get a photo that does the card justice. Trust me this card stands out a lot more than my photo shows.

Thank you for popping by my blog today!

  1. Avery, this is very pretty. I am thinking a wedding card, but you could also use it for a 50th Anniversary. Thanks for joining us at Pals Paper Arts this week.

  2. Wow! What a beautiful card! I love all of the gold embossing. I know how hard it is to photograph gold embossing...This must be amazing in real life! Thanks for playing at Pals Paper Arts!

  3. This is gorgeous, Avery! You've combined all the gold elements perfectly to make a beautiful card. Thanks for playing along with this week's PPA sketch challenge.
