Black and Gold Elegance

I had a great time playing with all of my new things from Scrappin Deals N Steals!! I used the Cuttlebug Highlights technique from the 10/08 Technique Junkies newsletter—it’s very light on the gold panels, but I thought it was just enough to add some interest on this very busy card.

The Gold frame looking object in the center is a big gaudy plastic belt buckle which is part of an upcoming package over at Scrappin Deals N Steals. Groovy! Since it had a bar across the center of it (for a belt to thread through) I layered my black paper piece on top of it. Instant frame!!

I made a custom brad with a Chatterbox Easy Brad Maker, also from Scrappin Deals N Steals. What a fun tool!! It comes with 3 circle punches in varying sizes to fit the three brad blanks that come with the tool. The flourishes around the brad are pieces from a Cuttlebug die, as well as the small fleur-de-lis in the outer corners. The gem flourishes are from Scrappin Deals N Steals too! How did I ever craft before I found that place? LOL

Cardstocks are from The Paper Temptress.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the project and thanks for stopping by!!

I can't decide which I like better the black and gold tri-shutter or the big card for big love. They are both beautiful. Which papers are you using on these two from Paper Temptress?
