VIDEO: Black, White and Gold Be Merry Florals

Hello! I feel like it's been awhile since I've shared anything with you guys. Oh, I've been creating and filming...but something always seems to come up before I have time to do editing and voice overs. So we are fixing that starting today, with these beauties!

There is something about a simple color combination of black, white & gold that is so elegant. I knew I wanted to incorporate this classic combo with our new Be Merry Florals stamp set and this is what I came up with. You can watch below to see how easy these are to recreate. They utilize a lot of heat embossing, but few supplies beyond that.

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

I started by stamping my background leaves in Black onto Coal Mine card stock, and then heat embossed my sentiment in white. I then added all of my white floral heat embossing, followed by the gold heat embossing.

I matted each version with a metallic card stock. But, you could definitely forego the mat for an even more clean and simple version.

I think this layout and technique would look beautiful with colored embossing powder as well. How about you? If you try it out, I'd love to see. Be sure to post on social media and tag #wplus9 to share yours!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! And for those of us celebrating, I hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
