SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS #16 - O is for One (color)

Good Saturday morning to you! It's time for another fun challenge at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS! This fortnight, we challenge you to make a card or project using ONE color. You can use neutrals in your project (white, kraft, beige, black), but make sure your focal color is predominant. Here's the card I made:

 Here is the inside:

I chose to use gold as my color. This card turned out so much better than I imagined, that I couldn't bare to snark up the inside. ;) I used a NBUS stamp and heat embossed it in gold. It was an experiment, since it's really detailed, and I wasn't sure if the embossing would blur it out or not. I think it turned out pretty good! The card base is covered with a panel of gold glitter paper, then the main panel on top of that. I had that little bitty extra space at the bottom, so I broke out the Sew Easy and sewed on a gold snowflake border. Kinda went well with the snow scene, I thought. ☺ The sentiment on the inside is also heat embossed. Once that was adhered, I went around the panel with a gold Gelly Roll pen. (Because there could never be enough gold piled on this card! LOL!)

 Here is another pic that shows all the shiny!

Ready to play along? Of course you are! Pick a color, any color, and make sure you link up your card or project at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. If you get a chance, please check out my teammies' blogs to see what fabulous creations they came up with! Thanks for hanging out here for a while. I hope you have a great day!
