I'm not a miner, but I am a 49er fan (when it comes to routing for the home team) in love with GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER! I can't get enough of it and have tried several different things with it, some successful and some round file worthy. For this Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge card I chose to just so some plain ol' heat embossing with Versamark Ink and Gold EP. This fall is the season for gold anything. It's hot and on trend and a perfect hue for mixing with prints and patterns of autumn.
My card base is So Saffron card stock with a layer of Ivory Naturals card stock. I added strips of Sweater Weather DSP to meet the sketch challenge and then added my embellishments. The leaf is a image called Magnificent Maple and the greeting comes from the Thank You Photopolymer stamp set. Both were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold EP. A couple pieces of Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon and Linen Thread are the finishing elements to match the challenge.
