Tarnished Gold Vine Embossed Birthday Wishes

I was having so much fun working with this new technique of tarnishing gold mirror cardstock with embossing folders that I decided to make another card, this time with a feminine twist using the Darice Vine Embossing Folder and My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers.  It turned out to be such and elegant looking card.

I decided to deboss the vines into the gold mirror cardstock.  I really like the way it gives a rich black background when the StazOn Jet Black Ink is run across the surface.  Once the panel was dry I ran it through the Big Shot with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX die.

For embellishments I found that the Memory Box Lorelai Leaf Poppy was almost an exact match to the vines in the embossing folder.  It was such a close match that when I die cut it from gold mirror cardstock it got lost in the shimmer of the panel, so I decided to cut it two times from Gina K. Designs Base Weight Onxy Black Cardstock and stacked them together a little offset and added small amounts of Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to hold them together.  A bow was die around the bottom of the cluster with Cousin’s Iridescent Gold Cord.  Several flowers from the My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers die set were also cut from gold mirror cardstock and grouped together.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back and they were adhered at the bottom of the leave cluster.

The sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Peaceful Wildflowers stamp set and stamped with VersaMark Ink on a scrap of black cardtock and adhered directly to the embossed panel to the left of the flower bouquet and the card was done.
