Gilded Christmas

Good Sunday morning all! It's a bumper day for prizes so please stay until the end of the blog post! First a rundown on the card, which, hopefully will be helpful to those of you working away on your Christmas card list! I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Patchwork embossibility folder. I extended it to make a slightly larger background as it is easily realigned. I matted it with a thin black mat. Next I stamped the Striped Holly background by Justrite using a clear perfect medium pad onto soft gold card. I heat embossed it with gold powder for a tone on tone look.  I matted it with both white and gold card and then layered up on my embossed background. Next I covered a piece of black card with a sticky self adhesive sheet that was just large enough to accommodate the 2010 Heirloom ornament. I used Summer Meadow gilding flakes to gild the piece. Using the Justrite Heritage Christmas ornament stamp, I inked it using a black archival ink pad and stamped the image onto the gilding. I stamped the sentiment in the opening and used clear embossing powder and heat embossed the entire image. I cut it out with the matching die and mounted it on foam pieces and placed it in the centre of the card. I used a white gel pen to add dots around the design and sentiment.  I stamped the Festive Poinsettia by Justrite several times on to vellum using a clear Perfect Medium pad. I embossed them all with gold powder and cut them out with the matching die. I layered the flowers up, added a black flatback pearl to the centres and glued them to the corner of my card. I tied a messy bow with white seam binding, added a gold cord bow and finished it with one of the new crystal sparklers. A double mat of soft gold card was added to complete the card. Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.

GM Sue - I am going to start the Christmas Cards this week and this has put me in the moood to do so. Lovely card -love gilding flakes. We have, so the weather men say, the worst storm since 1987 coming to the UK tonight into tomorrow - gusts of 80mph forecast - so it could do some damage. Nothing like you get in the US but still worrying. Stay safe fellow Wilsonettes and batton down the hatches.

Hi Sue. What a gorgeous Christmas card today !! I absolutely love the effect of the gold on gold embossing. It looks so rich and opulent.

The white ribbon compliments the card so well and I must get some of the new sparklers !! They are so lovely.

I can't wait for the next one. I am so glad you have some more to show. I really don't know how you do it all Sue !! Thank you very much. It is all much appreciated.
