Silver and Gold

Color Hues #30- Silver and Gold

The combination of silver and gold is something I like a lot and it is perfect for an elegant Christmas card or a wedding in my opinion. A couple of days ago I was playing around with another card very similar to the one I’m posting here, but colours were white and gold with a tiny amount of green. I made 2 at the time as I wanted to use up the extra bits. In thinking about this challenge I realized that the design of the earlier ones would work well for these colours and this is the result. Using 2 types of gold, one in a matte finish and one in a shiny finish then a silver one with a matte base. After die cutting the frame using an unbranded set of stitched rectangles I cut a base for the frame out of the matte gold. I also cut some solid squares using a 1 and 1/4″ punch. Using the shiny gold I die cut the thin square frames using 2 dies from a Concord and 9th set. I glued these as you see onto another piece of silver CS. Then I added the solid squares. Using a Creative Expressions poinsettia set I die cut the flowers and leaves out of both silver and shiny gold and added them to the solid squares. After stamping the sentiment from a Divinity Designs set I added 2 tiny embellishment centers to the flowers. I’ve had a lot of fun with this idea and like each of the cards I’ve made. I think the shiny and matte finishes work really well for the flowers.
