5 Gold Touches To Make Your Cards Shine

By | 03/13/2014

5 gold touches to make your cards shine…all on one quick and easy card!  I’ve always preferred silver to gold so needless to say, I haven’t played with all of the new gold papers and embellishments in the new catalog.

When I finally made a card with all of the gold touches, I had to wonder what I’ve been waiting for!  I also have to admit that I don’t think that I would have liked this card as much with the silver!

The nicest part of this card?  The You’re So Lovely stamp set was free!  Yep!  This is one of the Sale-A-Bration selections that you have to select from when you purchase $50 in product online at mystampingstore.com.

Card Recipe:

Paper:  Whisper White card stock cut 4-1/4 x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″, one piece cut with the smallest Deco Label Framelit,  Gold Foil cut with the second largest Deco Label Framelit, Fancy Foil Designer Vellum cut at 3 x 4-1/4″

Stamp Set:  You’re So Lovely

Ink:  Versa Mark ink

Accessories:  Gold Sequin Trim, Gold Baker’s Twine, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Deco Label Framelits and Big Shot


As I was browsing through the catalog, I realized that I also could have used the Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape.  I would have had 3 designs to choose from!


One of everyone’s favorite techniques is heat embossing.  I recall learning it in my very first stamping class over 20 years ago!  It’s one of those techniques that just fascinates from the first time you see it.  I also remember that I ran right out and bought the heat tool and the embossing powder to try it as soon as I got home.  I was so disappointed in the results!  At the time, I didn’t realize that all embossing powders are not created equally!

I love the results that I get with Stampin’ Up!’s embossing powder!  It’s a finer powder that really allows the details of stamps as fussy as this one to show!   It doesn’t clump together or cover the entire images.  You can emboss tiny details and it looks beautiful!
