Golden Grateful

There are two beautiful sets of vellum in the catalog, one of which is WINTER WONDERLAND.  It has black, gold and silver tones and is perfect for Christmas and winter cards.  But, I wanted to make a fall card with this lovely vellum and it worked beautifully!

Golden GratefulIsn’t this really rich looking!  Gold is a perfect match with the Soft Suede card base.

Did you notice that there’s no stamping!!  This card is all about the Big Shot so it came together easily.

The inspiration for this card came from the sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.

I love the simplicity of the design, so many options for your cards!!

Once my card base was embossed, all I had to do was add a couple layers of vellum plus gold glimmer paper. With all the gold,  I needed a bolder greeting that would stand out.  “Grateful” die cut in Early Espresso did the job quite well.  It was bold enough to stand out, but it still was cohesive.

This would be a lovely card in Christmas colors, you could make a bunch to mail out quite easily.  Check back tomorrow for the last of the October My Paper Pumpkin cards that I made.  Sorry I didn’t get to share them last week as planned, life kinda took over!  See you tomorrow!

    Love the card and the envelope! It’s one of my favorite embossing folders, yet I’ve yet to use mine.

    Your card looks is such a lovely combination of nature (the woodland background) and glam (the gold). Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

    The vellum certainly did work perfectly! Just BEAUTIFUL! I love the glamour of the gold mixed with the woodsy feel of the embossed panel. Might just need to CASE this one! Thanks for playing along this week at Create with Connie and Mary!
