The gold image on a gold panel was inspired by Kimberly's Muse card, shown below.
I started by rubbing Inka gold onto a panel of Neenah white cardstock using my finger. I then gold heat embossed the tree from the Merry Christmoose set three times for extra dimension (thank goodness for the Misti) and then heat embossed the sentiment only once. Next, I used a craft knife to cut an opening in the basket to create a mini shaker element, which I filled up with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins (Classic Christmas mix). Here's a close-up showing the dimension from the triple heat embossing.
One down, two to go! Stay tuned for my next contest entry!
