Silver and Gold for Christmas

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog . Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the lovely theme of “Silver and decemberGold”. I was inspired by the beautiful silver and gold in the picture and  decided to join in the fun. The team have created beautiful cards – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

For my card I used  Christmas designer paper from BoBunny. I added gold and silver die cut leaves, a few sequins and gemstones and a gold  ribbon for sparkle. A die cut sentiment in gold captures the spirit of Christmas. Hope you like my take on the mood board at Double D Challenges.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Christmas Time

Hello friends,

A Christmas card to share – my first one this year.  I have the honor to be a guest designer for Let’s Craft and Create Challenges today. Mary asked me to play along with the Christmas/ New Year challenge starting today on the blog. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of  this lovely challenge.

My card is created in traditional Christmas colors of green red and gold. To capture our summer Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere I used some kraft, brown and cream colors as well for a more rustic look. I layered the Christmas tree on music paper and added a bow with berries and little tags. To add a fun and festive feel to the card I used lots of red and gold stars. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

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:

Hello friends,

A clean and simple Christmas card to share today. I decided to join the  CASology  “Tree” challenge  and with Christmas just around the corner it created a perfect opportunity to add another Christmas card to my stash . I stamped the background with a KaiserCraft “Postmarks” clear stamp and add a silver die cut Christmas tree. The red stars and sentiment created the pop of color for this quick card. Hope the card will bring a lot of joy to the receiver.

  • White and silver card stock
  • Memory Box die “Snowflake Tree” (No. 98405)
  • KaiserCraft “Postmarks” clear stamp
