Elegant Cross and Gettin Dirty

I needed another sympathy card for a dear friend. I was missing my mojo for most of the week so this took me too long to make. I received a package with some GORGEOUS Mica Metallic Cardstock from PaperTemptress on Friday and I knew what I wanted to do! ETA: This cardstock is in the store! You can find it here!
I used Mica Metallic cardstock in amber, gold and cappachino. (sigh! ) You cannot see all the flecks of shimmer on this in the photo, but in real life--this just glistens.

I embossed the cross image (Elegant Cross from Rubber Stampede) on the Amber and then added some jewels and metal adhesive dots. I embossed the background stamp in gold on the cappachino and then matted the cross on scalloped oval nestabilities.


<--Here is another view of the card lying down. Materials used: Stamps-Elegant Cross (Rubber Stampede); K-Ren BG 23 (Stampa Rosa Inc); gold embossing powder; Versamark; Heat tool; Cardstock-Mica Metallic Cardstock-Amber, gold, Capachino (The PaperTemptress); Mark Richards Metal adhesive dots; Wedding jewels (The Paper Company); Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities; Spellbinders Decorative Photo corners.
