Gold On Gold Card - Artful INKables

When I saw the new Bug and Blossom Mandalas set from Artful INKables I just knew I had to create an elegant-looking card with it. I just love the intricate design of both of the main images and the accessory stamps make nice additions.

For the layout I was inspired by clean & simple's FTL#90. I masked off the top and bottom of my card front, stamped the images in Versamark, then embossed with fine gold embossing powder. I used this same combo on some cards last Fall and just love the subtle, but elegant look it produces. To define the sections a bit more, I used my ScorIt board and made score lines above and below the stamped area.

Make sure to see what the rest of the Artful INKables Design Team is creating with the newest releases. All of their blogs are linked to the left.
