Florals Embossed in Gold and Silver

I have used the beautiful new Simon Says Stamp Best Friend Ever stamp/die set, from their newest
  Love you, Too release, to make two metallic embossed cards...
The first one, I used my MISTI to stamp, color, stamp, emboss.  I stamped the floral image in my MISTI with a darker gray ink.  I removed the cardstock and colored with markers.  I then put the paper back into the MISTI, brushed with my magic embossing bag, stamped with versamark, and then gold embossed. I layered and adhered to a rectangular die cut panel, using one of the pieces of brand new Kraft Woodgrain cardstock from Simon!  I have always love Simon's white woodgrain cardstock, but love the brown when you want the woodgrain wood colored.  It goes perfectly with this image and sentiment...the sentiment is also from the set.  Here's a close up....

The second one, I chose to use vellum and silver embossing powder...
For this one, I stamped the vellum with versamark, silver embossed, and colored the flowers and leaves from behind.  I then adhered the vellum to more die cuts of the flowers, die cut from white cardstock.  
Funny thing with this...then I adhered the vellum to the white cardstock, the background of the floral image on vellum, looked a bit off white.  So...I chose to used a piece of natural paper...one a bit more creamy colored with little specks in it.  I again, used the stitched rectangle die cut and another of the sentiments from the set, along with some tonic drops, to complete this simple design.  
Here's a close up...
What pretty flowers...and combined with gold and silver embossing powder, makes them fancy!  
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. I like the vellum version so much better since the background is virtually transparent. Very elegant and lovely card!
