Christmas Gold

The challenge this week at Daring Card Makers is "Golden Highlights". We were asked to make a card using gold somewhere.

Earlier tonight I had pulled out my gold embossing powder as I expected that was the gold I would use. However, I happened upon these cute little epoxy Christmas stickers I had just bought at a local dollar store. At first I wondered what I could do with them as they were a bit too tiny to use on regular sized cards. Then I started sticking them onto different colored cardstock and really liked how the gold on them looked. I ended up deciding to using them on 3x3 cards. I might use the cards for the neighbors along with some home-made treats or maybe I'll make a little box to put them in and make it into a little gift.

Each card is outlined using a gold Pilot super color pen. The colored cardstock is (from left to right) Soft Sky, Buckaroo Blue, and Mellow Moss and the ink color for the sentiment matches each cardstock color. That sentiment is one from the Holiday Wishes from Papertrey Ink.

I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with !!

Thanks for visiting.

Your cards are always great, but the best part is that you actually USE the supplies you buy instead of stockpiling them like I do! I need to go on a spending freeze and just use what I have -- I could probably still craft for years!
