Challenge 53 this fortnight at The Glory of Christmas is red and gold
This is my second attempt to make a red and gold card. Firstly I tried stamping with versamark on red card and embossing with gold embossing powder, but I couldn't get the stamp to stamp properly (as my hands are too sore) so when I embossed there were bits missing so I threw that away and started again.
I printed out sentiment and image from Daydream Designs and changed the colour to red and made the background light red with a red border. Cut out and layered over red ribbon and gold glitter card. (The shine of the glitter card doesn't show up in the scan). Added gold star and gold Christmas tree brads. Layered all onto red card.
Unfortunately Diane had to close her shop so you can't buy her images any more. I was lucky to be on her design team and have lots of her images.
I hope you will go over to The Glory of Christmas and see the lovely cards by the design team and join in the challenge.
I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
12 months of Christmas cards link up - anything goes
Crafty Boots - Use a sentiment
Crafty Hazelnut's monthly Christmas card challenge - anything goes
Inspiration Destination 21- anything goes
Sweet Stampin Christmas February challenge - only words
Word Art Wednesday 171 - anything goes with an encouraging or uplifting verse.
Welcome to my blog
I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
