Today I have a card made for the MFP Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #279 which is to use both silver and gold on your card. I'm using a MFP stamp set called "Nutcracker" that I recently won by playing in a previous SF&F challenge and today is the first time I've had a chance to use it. Aren't these guys cute?!?! I embossed one with gold ep on black, and the other with silver on light grey card stock. I fussy cut each one and placed them on top of a red card base that was embossed with a Tim Holtz ef with assorted old-fashioned Christmas images. The sentiment was embossed with gold (I LOVE those fonts!) and layered on a silver embossed panel, adding 2 black mini brads. For the final touch, I switched the silver and gold "jewels" on their hats just to coordinate one with the other. The ends of the sentiment panel were done with a SU! mosaic punch to add another little "old world" touch.
I'm also sharing this over at Darnell's NBUS challenge #5 which is to use some "never before used schtuff" - the stamp set!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Monday is off to a great start!
