Greetings!  It’s time for another color challenge at CAS – Colours and SketchesLizy is our challenge hostess this month, and she’s chosen a very classic color combo.

When I saw metallic gold on the challenge rubric, I got a little excited.  I knew I wanted to combine a few things I’ve tried over the last few months.  After I stamped the border of red polka dots, the vanilla panel got spritzed with some gold pearl mist spray.  Unfortunately, the shimmer from it doesn’t show very well in the photo.  I used textured cardstock to die cut the heart.  I gave it some swipes with my VersaMark ink pad and heat embossed it with gold powder to give the edges some shiny definition.  Using dimensional adhesive to attach the heart gives it even more separation from the background.


Be sure to check out what the rest of the CC&S Design Team has made!  Then create your own clean and simple styled card with these colors and link it to the CC&S site by 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 12.  We’d love to see what you make!

  1. Luv this card. The addition of the embossing on the heart just makes it shine! TFS.

  2. Love this! Perfectly CAS. I like the texture on the embossed heart – beautiful work!

  3. What a beautiful card, clever break in that border stamp – how you don’t see it behind the gap in the heart – has left me wondering? Thanks for the inspiration! Hazel xx
