Peach & Gold + Tutorial

Nothing makes me happier than enjoying a Sunday with my beloved family, but today I also had the opportunity to craft and share something new with you. I prepared an elegant and modern card in peach and gold and also a photo tutorial!




I think this will become one of my favorite color combinations and I definetely love how nice the ribbons, threads and handmade embellishment look on this design. I am also sharing today's project with May Arts Ribbon! Thanks for letting me share my creations with you!

I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
