Hey there! Today's card is also done with the Faux Silk technique, but I added the Gilding technique to step it up!
Both natural and white coffee filters work great for this technique. I stamped the Painted Harvest bloom all over a natural one for today's card. I used Real Red ink, but when stamped on the natural filter it looks more like Cherry Cobbler. After stamping I crumpled into a ball, kind of tightly, then opened back up loosely. I didn't smooth out all of the wrinkles and creases before gluing to my 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla layer. After folding and adhering the edges to the back side of the layer with liquid glue I adhered to an Early Espresso 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" layer on the Real Red card base.
After the layer was attached to the card base I gently pressed my Versamark pad on the creases and wrinkles, sprinkled gold embossing powder over the entire card front, and tapped off the excess back into my embossing powder container. I also used a soft brush to selectively flick away excess powder where ti was sticking too much to the still-damp ink. I then used my heat tool to emboss the powder and achieve the "gilded" look.
I stamped a greeting from Merry Mistletoe with Old Olive ink on a 1" strip of Very Vanilla, snipping one end with my Paper Snips into banner points. I scraped the edges of the banner on the Versamark pad, dipped the edges in the Gold embossing powder, and heated with the Heat Tool to get a hint of gold edge. After wrapping Gold Metallic Thread a few times I tied a knot around the threads. I finished it off with a stamped holly from Carols of Christmas and three pearls I colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend Marker.

I stamped another Merry Mistletoe sentiment with Old Olive ink, and stamped the Very Vanilla envelope to match the inside of the card.
