Papertrey June Blog Hop - Golden Ticket


 Hi friends! Here's a quick one for the Papertrey Blog Hop featuring a touch of gold. I just discovered gold embossing on gold foil paper and I love it! Gives a real nice engraved look. I made a trophy card for Dad's Day with this technique that I'll have to post some day.


It's a golden ticket. Unfortunately this one is only good for a special birthday wish, and not a magical train ride to the North Pole.

(ETA: OK, so you all know my secret now ... I have never seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!)


Just the Ticket is used for the golden ticket and the tickets piled underneath (works as my foam tape and additional texture). A mat stack is used for the screen material, which worked out really well since it gives a matted area, but you can still see the background through it. The background is embossed on silver on a matte silver cardstock.

I'm happy to add this to my masculine card pile. 

Thanks for looking, and happy hopping!

  13. A golden ticket. What a great idea! I have a different ticket die and stamp but I'm definitely going to try it in gold. And the layer of other stamps behind is ingenious.

  33. Gold embossing on gold foil???!!! That is 1)very cool, 2)very, very clever. It turned out beautifully. Love this golden ticket card. It's all quite fun. And I'd go with the Gene Wilder version. Less creepy than the newer one. Good book too. Bev
