Gold and White Special Day Card

I thought I had enough nautical cards made up, so I decided to use some new paper I had to make a white and gold card. I finished this one, and started another non-nautical card. Then some women came into the shop and bought all my nautical cards, so it looks like I will have to make more nautical ones when I finish the one I started after I finished this one. I'd rather make flowery cards than nautical ones.

When we went to Rockland a few weeks ago, I stopped at a place in Camden, Maine which sells artist supplies. They had some really interesting paper there, and I got a few packs of assorted handmade papers. The gold and white paper on this card was in one of the packs.

I used white Core'dinations Pearl CS and gold mirror card for the layers, then used JustRite stamps, VersaMark and gold EP for the design. The stamped design was die cut with matching JustRite Spellbinders dies, and painted with watercolors I made from Pearl White PearlEx, and is very pearly and sparkling in person.

When I was holding the die cuts over the card to decide where to put them, it looked kind of plain, so I decided to add a piece of ribbon, then mount the die cuts dimensionally over that.

Lovely card Kathi. I really like the gold embossing, it's a lovely bright gold. Which brand of embossing powder did you use?

Hi Melanie, I used to use Ranger Superfine Detail gold, but when I ran out, I couldn't find it any more. I think this one is Recollections Superfine, but am not sure. It is pretty much the same as the Ranger one.

When I first bought EP, years ago when it first came out, it was at a kiosk in a mall. The girl who was selling it kept hers in shallow Rubbermaid dishes, and put the cards into that to coat them. It work so well, that I still do that with mine. Unfortunately, I only wrote the color on the container and not the brand name. (The only problem with keeping the EP in those containers is that they take up a lot of room compared to the little jars).
