It's June Mac here today. I normally avoid card making as I am not a great card maker, but I did have a couple of nice card backs in my stash and I do love the combination of red and gold, so a card began to come alive with a little help from Emerald Creek embossing powders.
I just love my design team role in Altered Pages as they have lots of inspiring products and fellow team members.
This month I was trying out the gorgeous Allure embossing powders by Emerald Creek. I used Emerald Creek Charred Gold which is totally different from any other embossing powder I have used and it's luscious. (see close up further down)
I began by choosing a ready-made card back from my stash and a gold mirri card. I used Versamark clear and an old text stamp and stamped over the mirri card. Then added the gorgeous Emerald Creek Charred Gold and heat set with my heat gun.Next I fussy cut some Christmas Poinsettia flowers from a printed page and I layered them up with 3d foam adhesive squares on the backs. I arranged them off center to show off the charred gold text which looks much better 'off camera'.
I then needed something to back the topper with and decided to cut up another old piece of striped red Christmas card-stock. I used Versamark around the edges and the Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder to frame the card.
I placed the topper on to the card stock and then arranged on my card back. I had a white lace die cut that I covered with Versamark and Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder. It was embossed twice for depth. Here is a close up of the charred gold effect. Isn't it gorgeous?Finally, I added some tiny little flatback Dew Drops to the centers of the Christmas Poinsettias and this simple card was finished.
