Gold and White for Christmas

Being inspired by some challenges running at the moment I finished this card yesterday. I've only used gold and white for this card, I really like the look of these colors together.

I had a general plan for the layout in mind and started out embossing the background, using a Tim Holtz EF.

I cut the poinsettia with dies from Marianne, layered it with a sequin and pearl in the centre. Behind it I attcahed some gold metal thread and a few berries on a stem.

I placed the poinsettia onto a gold heat set piece of vellum, using a script stamp from Glitz.


This card was made for:
ABC Christmas Challenge - 'G' is for Green or Gold
52 Christmas Card Throwdown Christmas color
House of Cards - Script and/or colors

Wonderful texture with the falling snow and the stunning gold & white poinsettia. Liked the tucked in golden pearl pins too, and adding in the torn script with the threads peeking out...really a striking & CAS design. Love this one! TFS & Hugs

Very CAS and very elegant as is always your style, Pia! The strip of paper scripted gives a very interesting touch to it, and this white embossed background feels really as the snow is falling down, love it! The touch of gold is just perfect to make this card very stylish! Love also very much the gold berries on the stem!

Stella said...

CAS also means chic and stunning; did you know that? I just LOVE this!

Thank you for your lovely comment; I am struggling with tags too. This tag die is a bit bigger; giving me more space. I always fail on a smaller size :)
