Gold Soiree Valentine

Although I'm calling this card a Valentine, I haven't put a greeting on it because I believe it could also be used as an anniversary or a wedding card. I've used the Crisp Cantaloupe with this dsp because it is perfect with it. I am going to miss certain of the 2013-15 in colors - like the Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar and Pistachio Pudding.

The flower is from the Sale-a-Bration catalog and is free with a $50 purchase. I love it that it's free and that it's a photopolymer set, but I'm bummed that it's only available through the end of March. The flower is comprised of three different stamps layered over each other. Stampin' Up suggests you start with the smaller image and the darkest ink, which works well for me. Others find it difficult and prefer to begin with the solid image and the lightest color. Experiment and see what you think.

This card design incorporates the gold satin ribbon and gold foil paper. I love the effect of the Hearts Border Punch used on the gold foil.
