Red and Gold

Hi there,

The Christmas hustle bustle is in full swing in my part of the world but I’ve got a new card to share with you today . I created this card for a special friend who loves the vintage look with a color combo of red and gold. For the background I used a beautiful CGull embossing folder that needs nothing more than a few embellishments for a lovely Christmas card. I added red flowers, gold twine and gold berries and a few sequins. The sentiment die is from Leane Creatief and cut from gold mirror board.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Swirls

Project details:

  • White card-stock
  • Gold mirror board
  • CGull “Floral Leaf Swirl” embossing folder (12-0018)
  • LeCrea’3-D-die “Pigeons” (No.45.1222)
  • Flowers
  • Gold berries
  • Twine
  • Red sequins

Thanks for visiting today and wishing you a happy weekend coming!  I’m sure it will be a busy one for us all.

Regards,

Amelia
