Birthday Card in Silver and Gold & a Final Christmas Card 2014

I love my stripes stamp set...and I you will see many cards I will create with that stamp set :) (hope it will not makes you boring my blogland friends). This time I try to make a birthday card. 

It was really not so easy to combine SILVER AND GOLD together in a card.

Step I made:

1. Stamped stripes  Crossing Lines from The Alley Way Stamps with gold ink then gave gold embossing powder and embossed it.

2. Adhere the gold stripes panel on a gold paper .

3. Stamped the Sentiment on the Black Cut Out Frame (sent from Monika (Cohenna) many thanks my dear sweet friend, I promised to use it one by one and named your name on my post if I used it :)), and gave silver embossing powder.

4. Because it was not all "H" stamped good also I put embellishment (a handbag) on the H at birtHday, and adhere the Black Frame on the gold striped panel.

I asked my husband is it good?...he said...hmm your card looks sad...(because black always similar like a Sad card in Germany)...oh my....but I cant change again it finished now :)

I colored my Image with Copic Marker :)

  9. Dear Monika, I totally missed seeing your cute plaid card in the AAA Cards gallery! So adorable! I also love your silver and gold one too! Best wishes to you and yours.

  10. You are just going to town with that striped set! You are really making all sorts of inventive things with it! I don't think your first card looks sad, I think it looks elegant and stately. And your second card with that plaid is so bright and cute!!

  11. Gold and silver is a beautiful combination, but ii find it hard too to use both on the same card. It turned out very stylish though.
    The plaid paper you've made looks awesome. It's such a sweet CAS Christmas card.

  37. The silver and gold Christmas card is just stunning. Never would have thought that silver and gold could look so good together. But, then of course your second Christmas card, wins the prize for cuteness!
