A Touch of Elegance

Hello friends!

It's time to share one more Craft Your Life Project with you
This month's CYL Project Kit Garden Rose is absolutely fab!!

After years of card-making/stamping, I can say that I sort of have a formula for creating elegant cards. Today's card seems to fit the formula! 

Altenew-PK Garden Rose-Antique Gold Embossing Powder

 Textures: dry-embossing folder nowadays offer so much depth. It is effortless to add colors.

Gold-Embossing: Anything that's gold-embossed nearly guarantee a touch of elegance.

Vellum: the nearly see-through paper gives an illusion of hidden beauty.

A touch of grey: this is a recent favorite of mine. I simple add some grey color in the mix. Nearly every time, the colors just get more interesting.

 Here's my project with the SAME project Kit.

Absolutely gorgeous! Love the coloured, embossed background
and the "touch of gold" embossed flower is the perfect finishing
touch! Really like the change of colours in the second card!

Beautiful! Gold embossing, vellum, and dry embossing with such a gorgeous embossing folder does make an elegant card. Love the touch of gray. Your formula equals elegance in a card!

This second card frome the kit is every bit as lovely as the first. You're a master at coloring these embossing folders. Love the touch of vellum, too. Grey is so useful. Don't know what I'd do without it.

Love how you used the embossing folder - your color choices and how you accented the embossed roses was so very pretty!

These cards are magnificent! I love the embossing folder design and the pretty colors you added to it. And, the gold embossed design does indeed make it elegant. The second card is just as gorgeous too!

I like the coloring for the flowers and the use of vellum. Great project shares.

I like the touch of vellum on the card. That is something I never would have thought of.

Kathy Raker said...

Stunning cards! Beautiful colors to highlight the embossed flowers, the gold embossing on vellum is the touch of elegance. Second card with black and white and a touch of glitter complements the beautiful flowers.
