White and Gold

Hi and welcome to our last Fusion challenge of the year!  And do we have an elegant photo inspiration and fun sketch for you!



I played along with the photo this time, focusing on the white and gold elements to come up with this card using a NBUS stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.


I'm not too sure how successful it was to layer up vellum but I don't think seeing the bottom layers distracts too much from the overall card.  I gold-embossed each of the images in the stamp set twice, so I've got lots of leftovers and then positioned them how I wanted to to look.  Then I had to find a sentiment to fit in the gap, and luckily another NBUS set came to the rescue 😃  The wee circle embossed images take the place of sequins to keep the card clean and flat.


Thanks for visiting.  Check out the rest of the design team's cards as they're fabulous as always and I hope you have time to play along with us.

Products used:

Stamps:  Winter Flowers (SSS), Glistening Paperwhites (Power Poppy)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  White, Vellum
Dies;  Winter Flowers
Accessories:  Antique Gold EP (SSS)

Cheers
Karren

Layering vellum is NEVER a mistake, Karren! This is so very beautiful!!! I haven't splurged for this set, but another little Poinsettia found my doorstep! I sure hope I get to play cards with you - the last? How did this year speed by so quickly??!! xx

What a stunner for sure! The layered vellum looks fantastic and I would say you were definitely successful. I love poinsettias and I think this set needs to go on my Christmas wishlist for next year!

Beautifully balanced design. I love the ' show through' layers. The circles finish the card perfectly. Very elegant.
