I used the Graphic 45 Bird Song collection for this card. It comes with a beautiful gold on black paper. I wanted this to be the base of my card. The gold is a little faded, so I decided to get out my Painty and draw over the designs. It made them really pop off the page. My paper looks handmade now. I love, love this effect. Best part is I didn’t have to have any artistic talent.
I did the same with the silver side of the pen on the print. I love the added interest here and there. This card reminds me of those vintage wooden scroll calendars with gold/silver accents my uncle used to send us from overseas every year. I just may keep this card for myself to display in my living room.
The sentiment was written with the ZIG Memory Writer and I highlighted the “h” in gold. Pop your layers together with some glue dots, add a bow, and you have yourself a beautiful card with Asian flair.
