UC - Metallics ....

.... Morning! I'm here this morning with my card for our new Uniko Challenge - USC#31. We want you to use metallics on your card. I've made an ultra clean and simple card:

Stamps: Uniko - Pure Florals Chrysanthemum, Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Versamark; Brilliance - Galaxy Gold
Dies: Uniko - Chrysanthemum Collection
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gold Mirri Card; Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder; Wink of Stella - Clear; Stampin' Up! Card - So Saffron

I've made an ultra clean and simple card this time as I really wanted to let the metallics shine! I cut a panel of gold metallic card as a mat layer. I cut the white panel slightly smaller then the mat and then die cut the large chrysanthemum in the middle. I used my MISTI to stamp the open flower in Versamark and heat embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder. I used tape to inlay the finished die cut image. I stamped a simple sentiment in gold on the front of the card. I then added some sparkle to the flower with a clear Wink of Stella brush. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale yellow (gold) card and on the white panel stamped the small solid flower in gold.

I'm submitting this to the current challenges at Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#189 - CAS and also to Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#85 - Inlaid Dies. I took a close up photo of the large chyrsanthem to show off all the shimmer and sparkle:
