City Crafter 266

Good Morning!

I'm hosting the challenge over at City Crafter this week and the theme is

Die Cut Gold


As gold is very trendy right now I'm asking that you
Create a card or project that features one or more Gold Die Cuts

I'm sure like me you all have that shiny or patterned gold CS lurking in your craft supplies somewhere ... So go get it out and join our challenge


I stencilled tiny dots on my DP paper and though you really can't see it too well here, I added some gold glitter to the stencilled dots


I cut the paper using one of the Lil'Inkers hillside border dies to make a space for the gold die cut sentiment and it was easy to manipulate the 'congrats' to fit into the curve


To finish I layered 2 Tinsel Ropes one in white and one in gold across my card. I love this die and I've often just cut the 'stars' apart and used them individually

Our Guest Designer this week is Gildett Marillac  (click on the link to visit her blog) Gildett makes some really lovely project and I'm sure she would love it if you said "Hi"

As always our team have lots more inspiration for you up on the City Crafter Blog and this week's winner will also have a GD spot with us

Wishing you a lovely day
