Country Floral Black & Gold Duo

Ready for some drama?!  There's black and gold coming up ... and lots of it!

The black & gold duo utilising the Country Floral embossing folder, gold foil sheet and black heat embossing
These two cards are made from one sheet of embossing that I cut in half (yes, it was painful!).  These two cards form part of a collection of cards that I'm putting together for a fundraising silent auction.  It'll be very embarrassing if nobody bids on them!

For the little banner on the card above, I used the Banners For You stamp set and coordinating die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  The sentiment and banner outline are black heat embossed onto gold foil sheet.

This is the set so far (A Quartet) - I'll add 2 more cards when I've replenished my stock of gold foil sheet!
TIPS AND TRICKS
  • Give the foil sheet a thorough going over with an embossing buddy before you start.
  • Swipe Versamark onto the inside of the embossing folder, on the side that has "Stampin' Up" printed on it.
  • Being careful not to jiggle the cardstock, run it all through your Big Shot 
  • Carefully remove the embossed sheet and sprinkle with black embossing powder
  • Heat with your heat tool.  You'll probably find that the heating process is much faster on the foil sheet.

SANITY TIPS:
  • Don't expect perfection - even if it's not perfect, it will still look stunning
  • Bearing in mind the tip above, you can use a small, soft, dry brush to remove excess embossing powder before you use your heat tool.
Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
