Hi everyone, Christine here today. With it being the start of a brand new year a reminder to enjoy life and have fun. This golden card is so simple to make with an effective background created with Crafty Power Tape, yes it’s tape! Let me show you how to wear your adhesive on the outside!
Creating a DIY Gold Background
With a piece of colored card panel, apply Crafty Power Tape in a diagonal stripe design. If you wish, use a ruler as a guide or estimate by sight.
Smooth down to make sure that each strip is affixed. Trim around the edge of your card to remove the excess pieces. Then remove the white backing, you’ll notice that Crafty Power Tape has the best backing – removes easily and quickly!
Next sprinkle over embossing powder, your choice of color, I’ve gone with gold for my golden New Year theme.
Tap away the excess and then heat set with a heat gun for glorious golden stripes!
Using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable Dispenser, I placed the panel onto a gold foil card mat.
For some interest, I looped burgundy twine around the layer twice vertically and affixed on the reverse with Crafty Foam Tape.
The finishing touches like flowers with little pearl centers and leaves die cuts were placed around the sentiment. This card was fun to do 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and wishing you a fantastic 2019!
