I had been playing with the dies, and created a black square with the die cut out of the middle. It was so interesting that I decided to use it as my focal point.
I started by taking the little corner-sprinkle stamp and stamping it with Versamark ink, then heat-embossing it with Gold Embossing Powder. And while I had the embossing powder out, I also stamped/embossed the sentiment and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes (circles) framelits.
Then I began to layer...
The sentiment was adhered to a circle of Gold Foil, and it is centered on the medallion with Dimensionals. I also had a very skinny circle of Gold Glimmer paper lying on my desk--it was a perfect addition around the sentiment!
Under the medallion cut out is a piece of Gold Foil. This is layered on a square of Basic Black, and then it's all popped up (with Dimensionals) on a square black card base. But something was missing...
As stated, this is a truly elegant, yet glittery, card. The photos don't show off the beauty of it - :(
