What Does a Solid Gold Pumpkin Look Like?

What Does a Solid Gold Pumpkin Look Like? It looks like this--but probably without all those beautiful cutouts!

Expresso card

And a bit closer...

Espresso card cu

This Detailed Pumpkin die was cut from  the Gold Metallic paper--it's a new paper in the annual catalog--you probably saw it used in Tuesday's post...if not..check it out here...

We mentioned Tuesday that the Metallic Gold paper is kind of hidden in the annual catalog so we're bringing out out to make sure you see it. The background of this card is deep brown (Early Espresso) in order to bring out the brilliance of the Gold Metallic paper. As well the verse is stamped on a subdued Crumb Cake cardstock to again provide a bit of contrast with the glimmer and shine of this paper.

When you have such a detailed design as with the's often better to keep all the other elements "quiet" so that the focal point stays in the forefront of your card.      

I've been re-discovering the Color Family Designer papers--in this case the Neutrals--I get all caught up in the new DSP designs and almost forget the beauty that is in those 6X 6 papers that come in quite handy when we need something that doesn't challenge our focal point.

Several products you'll need are in the July-Jan mini catalog. If you don't have a demonstrator & need a copy--just contact me & we'll get one in your hands.

I'll give you  step by step directions for this card followed by the Supply list so you can purchase what you need to re-create this beauty.
