CASology 54: Golden Congratulations Card

Today I wanted to keep it Clean and Simple (CAS) and make something that I might use at an upcoming craft fair.  I have been asked to make some stationary projects and I think this one will be perfect.

The card was inspired by the CASology challenge (#54) which was to use Gold on your project.

For the gold on this project I decided to use some gold embossing powder.  I did both the design and the sentiment to make it shine.  I tried doing some gold embossing on the Crumb Cake, but it did not show up very well.  I love the way it pops off the Chocolate Chip cardstock.

Using a repeating pattern and a monochromatic color scheme keeps this card CAS.  Adding some embossing and ribbon, as well as layering the base gives the card added interest.  What will you make with gold?

Papers: Chocolate Chip (#102128), Crumb Cake (#120953), Very Vanilla (#101650)
Inks: VersaMark (#102283)
Stamps: Sweet Essentials (#126457), Hello, Lovely (#130243)
Other Supplies: Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (#103129), Crumb Cake Seam Binding (#122332), 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch (#127811)
