Color Dare #459 ~ French Vanilla, Black & Gold

Welcome to Friday with another Color Dare Challenge. This week for Color Dare #459 we are challenging you to use just three colors ~ French Vanilla, Black and Gold!

I have to say I stepped out of my comfort zone with this one. I am not really a gold person but I decided to really embrace the gold.

I used the Gold Foil paper and Black with my quatrefoil dies to make the background. I then used the fancy bracket thin cut to cut the black cardstock. I then used versamark to stamp anniversary and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I used the Doodled Florals Stamp and thin cuts. I cut the gold foil paper for the leaves and then used Stazon Black Ink. I used the versamark ink and gold embossing powder on the French Vanilla paper.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~  Color Dare #459 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page. You can also link up via Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr and  other forums. For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Wow you really did a great job for someone that doesn’t like gold! I love that background and how it makes the flower stand out. Great job!

  2. What a beautiful background of gold foil and black, and the white embossed gold floral really pops. Georgeous card.
