Gold Flakes Card Making Tutorial

Hi there! I have another Let It Snow card to share with you today.

I started with a piece of ivory cardstock and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink along the bottom.

Then sponged Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I was going for a whimsical look, so I made a bit of a wave with the color.

Then I used my black sponge dauber, just using the residual ink on it, to add some color at the bottom.

It's hard to see in the photo, but I stamped two snowflakes using VersaMark ink. You can click on the photos to see them larger.  

Then sprinkled gold embossing powder and heat embossed.

Next, I stamped a few smaller snowflakes with Memento Desert Sand ink.

The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on ivory cardstock, then cut and embossed using Spellbinders® Labels Thirty-One. Then I sponged with Memento Desert Sand while still in the die template. I added some Zva Creative self adhesive pearl bling, then layered with Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate on a Gold card base (5 ½ by 4 ¼ inches).
