Incorporating Gold into a Birthday Card


I haven’t been joining challenges lately, and have found I’ve not been motivated much to make cards. After last weeks “Just Us Girls” challenge, I decided to join them again. (BTW, I won the IBS $25 gift certificate with that challenge!)

This week’s challenge is to incorporate gold into your card. I haven’t used gold on any of my cards for some months, so I was quite excited about this one.

Here’s what I came up with:


The stamps used on this card are both from Inspired by Stamping.  The dies are from Spellbinders – Labels Eight, and Majestic Labels Eight.

The embossing folder you can see peeking through at the back, is the Rose EF from Kaisercraft.


Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!





I am adding this card to the Inspired by Stamping customer gallery.

  2. Thank you, Sharyn. I’ve had these dies for ages, but rarely use them. I’ve decided I need to get out the dies I don’t use much, and give them a good working out!

  3. Well, apparently taking a break from card making has really paid off as this is really gorgeous and I love the colors your chose to go with the gold. Awesome work my friend!
