Modern Medley Gold Embossed Grunge

Hi Stamping Friends!

What has happened to me?  I never used to create black & white cards…EVER!  Just not my style. 

But lately…lately that Modern Medley Designer Series Paper and all its gorgeousness has me under its spell! 

Modern medley gold - two cool

Pam Morgan, a trainer at Stampin' Up!, presented this beautiful card design at the Opening Session of Convention and I fell in love with it immediately!

I think it is the stunning Gold Embossing effects that takes this card over the top for me! 

Modern medley gold - v3

I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (this a must-have!) to make the lines on the Basic Black card base.  The 2" x 4" piece of Modern Medley DSP is also embossed with the splotches from the same set. 

The "hello, you" is from Regarding Dahlias.

I wrapped the DSP with some Pool Party Baker's Twine and added some Epic Day This and That Washi Tape to the top to further grunge it up!

The two, layered Coastal Cabana Pansy Punches are also gold embossed with the splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge. 

Even the Very Vintage Designer Button has been dipped into VersaMark Ink and embossed to match!

I'm gonna have to do this for a class!  So elegant and shabby all at the same time!  I used Linen Thread on this one instead of twine.

Modern medley gold cone 

Pam also created a matching Cone Treat Holder, so I had to try that out, too!  It's a 6×6" piece of Modern Medley, gold embossed with more Gorgeous Grunge images.  Roll it into a cone shape and adhere with Sticky Strip along the edge.

To close it, make a score line on the flap along the top of the cone and fold the flap forward.  Tuck it underneath a popped up Pansy Flower or similar element.  You can also secure it with some washi tape.  I added a few random strips of that on the front to match the card.

There's lots of room inside the cone for candy and such!  Pam added a matching Pansy flower ribbon bookmark.

I'm thinking this card may be a contender for this month's "Last Thursdays" card class…what do you think?  Hope you can join me next Thursday, August 29, at my home.  I'll be putting together some Class-To-Go Kits, too!  Stay tuned for details!
