Green and Gold

Today's cards are in the colours of green and gold. I often work with a limited colour pallette, and these cards were the result of an experimental day when I set out to use some sentiments.

"Enjoy the Spirit od the Season"

The bow is a Christmas tree decoration and can be removed from the card since it is just attached with the star brad.

"With Love to You Both this Christmas"

I bought a huge reel of this Christmas ribbon from The Works for £1, it makes a great background for tradional colour schemes.

"Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year"

The background for this card is embossed then rubbed with gold "Buff-it" to bring out the detail. I couldn't resist adding a splash of red for a truly traditional look!

"May all that you wish for at Christmas come true"

I found one A4 sheet of the background card with the gold presents in my stash and cut it carefully to make the backgrounds for the first two A6 landscape cards and this A5 portrait. I've had it for ages and can't remember where it came from. I do think the Tim Holtz deer is perfect for this size of card.


  1. I can only say, that I really hope that the sentiment of the last Card may be true for you


Thanks for leaving a comment, it's nice to know I'm not just talking to myself :)
