Silver and Gold...

     I just can't believe it's only a little over two weeks until Christmas. I haven't bought a single gift. In fact, I have no idea what to buy. And the tree is up but not completely decorated yet. I really need to get moving on this.
     I was inspired to make a Christmas-themed card, at least. This is based on the current sketch at Card Patterns (#144). I'm quite pleased with how this came out and how the dark shades of red and green work with the metallic elements.  I used up my last scrap of that "merry Christmas" paper for this and it was the basis for the color choices.
     The Christmas tree (Impression-Obsession) is silver-embossed on dark green and has an "out of the box" cut with the star on top. It's matted on a metallic silver scalloped oval. I wrapped gold metallic cording around the printed paper and tied it with a silver bow in a thicker cording. (The silver and gold trim  make this eligible for the current Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge, RRR 37; silver and gold ribbon/trim.) And everything is on a maroon base.


  1. Beautiful card, and I know how you feel, I need to get my cards addressed! I'm just now baking! Yikes!

  2. Beautiful! LOVE your tree! Thanks for playing along with us at Really Reasonable Ribbon!
