CAS-ual Fridays Fantastic!

I hope you're having a great day! I think when you want to impress someone when sending a card, that all you need to do is pull out the embossing powder. There's nothing like the feel of raised embossing, and when it's gold it's even better! 

I embossed the Full On Floral background stamp on a piece of light pink card stock. First I used an embossing buddy to remove static, and then stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. 
The finished panel trimmed was 1/4" smaller than my A2 card base so I added a strip of gold glitter tape along the left edge of the card. You can also use glitter or foil paper if you have some handy.
The embossed panel is attached to a piece of craft foam and then attached to the card so it's raised a little higher than the tape strip.
I repeated the gold and pink throughout my design. The sentiment from Truth is is stamped in pink on a Scalloped Tag. A Fun-Fetti circle die cut in gold foil doubles as an eyelets. A second tag was cut from gold foil and both are threaded with gold twine. If you look close you'll see I added gold glass E-beads to the twine for even more gold glam.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek, I hope you have a great day!
