I've always loved this stamp set, and the faux metal technique just seemed like it'd work nicely with it.
I used Very Vanilla CS sponged with Close to Cocoa, Really Rust, and Creamy Caramel to stamp the image of the Pharaoh onto (in Chocolate Chip). The card body is non-SU! CS in a light beige color, and the background images are stamped in Creamy Caramel. The card front is cut 1/4" smaller than the back, and I used alternating 1/4" strips of Real Red and Tempting Turquoise cs down that extra edge, using the closed front as a guide, then I used a Versamarker pen to "stripe" at each interval between the red and turquoise stripes and used gold embossing powder there.
On the faux metal images, I purposely straight cut the sides and tore the top and bottom (tore it so the raw edge did NOT show)
