GD at Shopping Our Stash - All that Glitters is Gold

Here's another card for Shopping Our Stash , where I'm delighted to be the Guest Designer for January.

This week's challenge is 'all that glitters is gold'.

I've made several really glitzy gold cards lately, especially for Christmas and New Year , so I wanted to see if I could make use gold in a more subtle way.

So this card is very simple - I made a base from kraft card, and stamped the bird and two flower stamps (Woodware) and sentiment (My Favorite Things) and heat embossed them in gold.

It might be too minimal for some tastes but I can think of several people, male and female, who I could send this to.

I'm really enjoying guesting at Shopping Our Stash ...next month, it could be you...all you have to do is enter the challenge at put DT after your name to be in with a chance.

Hello Marina: Love the soft contrast of the gold embossing with the Kraft card stock, a beautiful CAS card with a fabulous image that catches your eye right away.
Thank you for being our guest designer at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we are glad you are enjoying this special time with us.

Minimalistic also means postage friendly, and what a beauty, love how the gold shows on this Kraft base.
