Masking and Embossing

I love the rich colors of fall; they are so beautiful!  This Sangria collection from CTMH is the perfect example of lush color with its Poppy, Pomegranate, Eggplant hues.  When I created this card, I chose a simple design that would push this Autumn paper to center stage.

Since all the colors are so rich, I wanted a bright pop.  That's when the idea of gold heat embossing came to me.  Check out this video for some ideas on masking over sentiments and masking for dimension.  

Here's a link to last week's post about masking:  MASKING
