Brushed gold cardstock isn't new, but I haven't been inspired to want it until I saw the new In Color 2013-2015 collection. Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantalope, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar, they all scream for a little gold accent. I've poo-pooed gold for the last two decades, having had my fill of it in the 80's and early 90's. So much so that I changed out my wedding band and engagement ring to platinum several years ago. Gold is no longer passe and I welcome the reintroduction along with some really on trend new colors.
You just can't miss with a classic navy and gold combination with a tiny bit of crisp white; it's like sailing with the Kennedy's in Hyannis. Or the Coppe's in Coituit. Any captain or mate would be happy to receive this classy card. It features the Open Sea stamp set, Banner Greetings stamp set from the new annual catalog (only available to hostesses) gold embossing powder, Brushed Gold, Whisper White and Night of Navy cardstock with an adorable Carrick Hitch knot fashioned from Whisper White Baker's twine.
Crisp White and Gold, another classic color combination and here, less is more.
Continuing with the nautical theme and the By the Seashore stamp set, a little something for mom in soft pastels like crisp cantalope and strawberry slush with a bit of watercoloring with our great Aqua Painter with our Classic Ink Pads-and a sliver of Champagne Glimmer paper. I wish I was better at taking photos because this card is SOOO pretty in person. I love, love, love the pastel pinks and corals with gold accents. Soft and subtle, that strip of neon pink in the photo is really a subdued pink. You'll have to trust me on this one. ;)
And lastly, a new favorite which sorta reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream - pistachio pudding and crumb cake card stock with a splattering of acrylic gold paint. The brand new Label Love stamp set and coordinating punch tie this wedding beauty together.
