Gold and White Christmas Card


I've made another quick and easy card to add to my Christmas stash this year. I started off by embossing the card base with a SU! softly fallen ef, then stamped the Rubbernecker tree image with Versamark and heat-embossed it with gold. I also heat-embossed the sentiment in gold. I initially intended to place the sentiment on the bottom, but I liked it better placed diagonally right across the tree, so that's where it ended up being placed.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Jingle Belles "Text Me" challenge - to put emphasis on the sentiment/words



I used the diagonal line of gold, sentiment, and white to create my card.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day today!

What a beautiful classy Christmas card Carol! I love that tree and I really love the sentiment going across the tree. I thought at first it was a split tree and you just stamped the sentiment in the split. Love it! Hugs, Brenda

Super elegant CAS Carol!! Wow! I think that you have done the perfect choose with the sentiment placed diagonally across the Christmas tree! It gives a fabulous interest and a striking style to your card! Love the tree with the gold heat embossing and the cold embossing on the back, such a lovely momocromatic project!
