Here is a card I made with the Cricut for a friend's birthday. I used burgundy colored cardstock for the card itself.
I used metallic gold sticker paper to cut out the fleur de lis. I placed it on a thin textured paper diamond cutout over a strip of black paper along the bottom. Then, I tied a metallic gold string around the top with a few beads.
For the inside, I raised the background paper using a piece of foam, held down by gold brads. Then, I cut the words out using the Cricut on tan cardstock.
Here you can kind of see that the words are raised a little.
