Gold and Silver Thank You Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Combining gold and silver can be very striking and elegant, especially when embossed with rubber stamps from Red Rubber Designs!

     I started by stamping the background script onto white cardstock, using permanent black ink, with the Beauty of a Woman stamp, and spritzing with Lindy's Sprays. Then I embossed the Fern Frond Stamp with Emerald Creek (Silver Sparkle) Embossing Powder, and the bamboo with the Simple Starters Stamp using EC (Charred Gold) EP.

     I used EC (Charred Gold) again with the So Splattered Cling Mounted Stamp along the bottom and right side. Then I embossed the sentiment with the Vintage Greetings Stamp (no longer available) with EC (Mirror Gold) EP, and adhered the sequins and beads one by one. 


     The frame was cut and mitered from a heavy kraft board, and covered with black gesso. Then I embossed it with the Victorian Borders Cling Mounted Stamp using EC (Mirror Gold and Mirror Platinum) embossing powders. 

     These older Petaloo butterflies were the perfect addition!

     Thanks for stopping by, and get these stamps and more at Red Rubber Designs!
