Egyptian Gold ornaments card



I made three different cards, as you can see from the picture. I didn't know which color I would like best - Burgundy, Eggplant, or Night of Navy, so I did one of each. When I went shopping at a not so local LSS (Stamp Salado), I bought some Egyptian Gold embossing powder. It is a gorgeous gold with glitter in it - it's so sparkly and glittery instead of just being a regular ol' gold EP.

It's nice to twist things up by doing something a tiny bit different. Instead of having a regular ol' square on the card, I turned it and made a cool diamond shape. It sort of mimics the diamond pattern in the background, as well as the shape of the center ornament.

Here's the basic info:

Stamps (all SU): Hung up on the Holidays, All Holidays, Print Pattern
Inks: Gold Encore, Burgundy, Eggplant, Night of Navy
CS: Burgundy, Eggplant, Night of Navy, Poison Ivory (shimmery vanilla cs - not SU), Brushed Gold
Other: Egyptian Gold EP, gold ribbon
