Make new Friends but Keep the Old, One is Silver the Other is Gold

The Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge of the week #143 is:

  • Black
  • Daisy White
  • Gold

The papers are discontinued but are too elegant not to use up. Part of scrapbooking and card making is to use your stash of papers, embellishments and, in this case, embossing powders in gold. The powders seem to last forever and still bring a thrill when they start to melt with your heat gun, going from a pointillism look to melted together and shiny. LOVE IT!!!!!

The Embellishments I used are:
The Cards

I always keep cards on hand. I buy the value packs of 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" cards. There 50 cards and envelopes and they come in Daisy White X254 and Colonial White X1410. At $14.95 the cost comes to about $0.30 per card. Just add your LOVE!!

The Stamp
The stamp set is You mean the World to Me B1467

I find myself using this stamp a lot which gives it great value.

The Cuts
The paper cuts are very simple, 5 1/2" X 1 1/2" and 5 1/2" X 2 3/4".
The scalloped squares are cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge "square 2" on page 33 in the handy dandy cartridge book that allows you to browse through all the zillions of shapes. Yes zillions or close to 700. 
  • the black square is 2 1/4 and 
  • the gold is 2 3/4" 
  • the white cardstock is 2x2.

Let your imagination go wild!!
