Black and Gold Christmas Card

Hi, Friends.....

I'm here with a festive gold and black Christmas card I made for Scrappy Mo's November Rudolph Days Challenge. I was inspired to use these colors by the dazzling black and gold card by Vanessa over at the Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge for this month. Hers featured a chalkboard style card with that wonderful translucent half-erased look. I tried to imitate that look using vellum on my card.


I used the Viva la Verve November Sketch.

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (for black background panel)
Stamper's Anonymous - TH Christmas Miracle
Gold embossing powder
DCWV Foiled Vellum Stack
Holographic Washi tape
Core'dinations - Black Cat Cardstock
Shimmery ribbon from stash

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your visits and kind words so much!! Have a lovely week.
