CAS embossing

Hi crafters. I have another card for the CAS mix up challenge. I found this gold shimmer cardstock panel in a second hand shop and thought it would be great to dry emboss with a die. In the same shop I found the MFT Retro squares dies. ( It was a lucky day!). I dry embossed this die 3 times. I added a layered Kaisercraft Fern Leaf diecut. I wanted to have a darker grey sentiment to match the fern but opted for silver which was available. To tie in with that, I spatttered silver paint on top. I quickly realised the paint wouldn’t be shiny enough, so tipped the silver embossing powder on that too. The sentiment comes from Concord and 9th Grateful for everything stamp set.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

CAS mix up challenge: Embossing with dies

My choice is heat embossing and spattering.

Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Stamp it in Stamptember

Happy crafting,

    Love the texture on this fine gold shimmer paper. It’s like the die and paper were made for each other. The black fern was perfect along with the silver sentiment and splatters bringing this card together. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up!

    What a stunner of a card. I love the dry embossing with the die cut on the gold shimmer card and the dark leaf die cut looks fabulous x. What a fun idea how you did those splats too x.
