Merry Gold Christmas Card


Good afternoon! There are several Christmas in July challenges right now. When I sat down to create my card I wasn't in the mood for red and green. So, I went gold. I used to decorate my Christmas tree in gold, silver and white, that is until my hubby told me it was boring. Now we have a traditional Christmas tree with all colors and different ornaments. He helps me pick out the ornaments and we decorate the tree together, so the change was good.

Okay, onto my card. This Merry Gold Christmas Card is a 5" x 5" card. I used Very Vanilla and Antique Gold for the color scheme. The layout comes from the current sketch at Feeling Sketchy. I added a few pearl details and some glitter paper for sparkle. I heat embossed the image (Special Delivery by Stampendous!) and sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes by Stampin' Up!) in detail gold embossing powder by Stampendous!. Oh... if only making a Christmas card would bring cooler weather, I would be a very happy girl! Thanks for stopping by!

My Merry Gold Christmas Card is entered into the following challenges:
