Hello Sunshine...

House of Cards Metallics Challenge...

Hello all!  Welcome to August 1st!  It is time for a new challenge at the House of Cards!  Today’s challenge is a word cue challenge – and that word?  Metallics! 

This one stumped me for a while because I really wasn’t sure what I could use.  I tried making a card with a metallic finish and it looked awful!  Finally it dawned on me to use some of these sweet Simon Says Stamp card kit papers that have gold on them! hoc metallics 1 (511x640)

So I opted to make a wedding card.  I started off with SU! smokey slate cardstock and cut a sliver off the side so I could add the gold polka dotted paper.  Then I used some of the pretty flower paper and my pierced square die to cut a square so that I could showcase the two gold foil sketchy heart die cuts.  I heat embossed my sentiment in gold and then popped this card front onto another piece of smokey slate. hoc metallic 2 (640x404)

It’s your turn to give this a try – any type of metallic will do and I bet you are itching to give this challenge a try!  You can link up your creation HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I am off tomorrow and will be back on Monday!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! smokey slate and gold foil.  SSS May card kit papers.  Stamps:  SSS congratulations.  Dies:  MFT pierced square dies.  SSS sketchy heart die.  Other:  SU! gold embossing powder.
