For this card I was trying to match the Gilded Autumn Designer Series paper by Stampin Up® and emboss with both Gold and Copper embossing powder.  Note: The Life is Beautiful stamp set by Stampin Up® is a distinktive stamp so the final finish will have texture.  I added sentiments from the “Here’s a Card stamp set by Stampin Up® and the Stitched Shapes Dies by Stampin Up® to help finish of this card.  I was very pleased with the final product.  It’s not a pretty in the picture as it is in person.  I hope you will give it a try!
