Golden Christmas

Hello everyone,

I think I'm actually starting to feel the Christmas spirit because I was only thinking about crafting a Christmas card today. It all started with Friday's Christmas Stamping All Year Long challenge which was to use two different designer papers. The design is based on Saturday's Sketch For You To Try which really lent itself to multiple different papers. Last week's Craftalicious challenge was to use swirls and pearls while Friday's Daring Cardmakers challenge was to use a tree.

The paper on this card is Stampin' Up Whisper White and Anna Griffin Designer Christmas. The image is Penny Black Christmas Constellation which was heat embossed with Close To My Heart gold embossing powder and highlighted with Hero Arts pearls. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet.

I love this card. It is actually quite monochromatic. I often have problems with this image but this sketch, flipped, works really well. The pearls also work perfectly.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
