This weeks tag can be seen here. My first thoughts were how elegant black and gold look together. I decided to use this for my inspiration and also I love the way Linda had used gold embossing on torn vellum, a really cool look. I also was inspired by the stencilling she put underneath it.
So off I went to my garden studio, it is just about OK down there still with my little heater on, to start my card.
I used my Tim Holtz Christmas stencil, pounced some embossing ink through the words and gold embossed some on black card.
Next I made the vellum, instead of embossing paste I again just gold embossed using the Festive stencil this time, as Linda had.
I also die cut a large snowflake in gold card and it was then time to put on my creative card.
Here is my creation for week 9. It is very hard to photograph, there is a lot of shiny bling here!
Here are a couple of close ups. I also dotted some little gold stars onto the background paper
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges'
