Be Golden...

Hey there, crafty friends!! Welcome back to another fun filled week with Craftwell and Sabor Papel!! I am so happy to kick off this new week! We are going to continue in our month long celebration with more amazing projects!!

Today, I made a card for the daughter of a family friend whose daughter will be graduating this year. She is such an amazing young woman and I wanted to remind her always SHINE!!

So, I made her this card that says "Be Golden. SHINE".

Supplies Used
Teresa Collins Pocket Dies- Noteworthy, Thankful Holiday (Craftwell)
Recuerdos Ole (Sabor Papel)
Ramitos (Sabor Papel)
Corazonzitos (Sabor Papel)
Stitched Rectangle Die (Pink and Main)
Nesting Circles Die (Darice)
Kraft Cardstock
Gold Foil/ Mirror Paper
3D Lacquer
Craft Foam
3D Dots (EK Success)
PITT Artist Pen S ( Faber-Castell)

Using the bigest of my stitched rectangle dies from Pink and Main, I ran it through my cut'n'boss machine and die cut out one of the panels from the Recuerdos Ole paper from the Ole Collection .

Then I die cut these decorative my be golden die from the orange panel from the same sheet from above and also from the Ramitos paper. 

Then, I cut my star with the word "shine" out of gold metallic paper. I also die cut a circle mat for my Be Golden die cut using my Darice Nesting Circle die. And, I  took a smaller circle die and die cut a piece of craft foam.

then die cut the star framed rectangle die out of Corazonzitos paper.

I ran my die cut  pieces through my Xyron sticker maker and layered my circle "be golden" piece onto it's gold mat. Then, with a glue pen, I attached the orange letters from the second cutout into the empty alphabet spaces. I then attached the foam circle on the backside of my die cut.

 I used a glue pen to attach my star frame to my card.Then. attached  my circle piece onto my card as well.
I die cut my star from moor gold paper and then layered it onto a piece of Corazonzitos Paper and cut a thin border round the whole star. Once completely trimmed, I added foam adhesive to the back for a bit of dimension and attached it onto my card.

I then trace around the letters on my "Be Golden" with a PITT Artist pen to define the words better.

 Lastly, I cut a strip of burlap (about 1/2" x 4") and tied a simple knot onto it and then trimmed the ends. Then I used 3D Lacquer to attach it to my card front!

I love how this card has a very Boho vibe going on with it. These colors and bright beautiful patterns just grab you and pull you in!!

And I hope the recipient will too!!

I hope you all enjoyed today's project!!

Until next time...
