One really fun trend in scrapbooking and card-making right now is the use of GOLD. I've been seeing it everywhere, and it's SO pretty. I found some really awesome shiny gold paper at Michael's, and thought I'd try using it with some of my die-cuts. I just love how it catches the light and shimmers and shines in real life. I don't know if the photograph really captures it, but it's quite lovely.
These cards were created using Crate Paper pattern papers, vellum and tag, some machine stitching, a 3-D jar which is also from Michael's, and the doily was also cut from the gold paper using the French Pastry Doily Die-Cut from Cheery Lynn Designs.
