Amazing You - With Springtime Foils

I have this beautiful card to share with you today .... all in Silver, Gold and Black :o) 

I actually love mixing metallics together. This one was easy because the paper I chose already had both Gold and Silver Foiling.  It's from the Springtime Foils Specialty paper pack - a FREE item during our Sale-a-Bration promotion.

I used the Direct to Paper Technique again to colour it - this time using my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. Doesn't it look great? I think it's absolutely stunning!

I added a Gold Foil mat under the paper to make the Gold pop a bit more - there's more Silver than Gold in this design. I also used Gold for my Scallop Circle mat. 

I stamped the flower twice and embossed one with Gold powder and the other with Silver powder. After cutting both out by hand - the full one in Gold with the foliage and just the top layer of petals for the Silver one - I layered them together using Dimensionals. 

I used the Stitched Shapes framelits to cut out the White Circle mat and then Silver embossed the Rays twice - on the top and bottom of it - then positioned my Flower.

The sentiment was die cut using another of our Sale-a-Bration FREE items :o) - the Celebrate You thinlits dies. 

I added some Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to the back of a piece of Gold Foil and more to a larger piece of Basic Black card. I cut the sentiment out three times from the Black and once from the Foil. After peeling off the backing from the adhesive sheet, I then layered these on top of each other to create this fabulous dimensional sentiment.
