I created a Christmas card with the awesome A Touch of Gold collection.

Merry Christmas

I love the non-traditional colors of this versatile collection.  The base for this card is the Deluxe paper, & on top is the negative of the Sticker Sheet.  The black stripes of this sheet is lovely & it’s a shame to just throw it out.  Of course I also added the circle sentiments from it.


The Merry Christmas word was cut out from the Christmas Words specialty paper.  I then had fun adding some inky touches to the background, keeping to the black & bright color of the collection.  It’s all finished off with a Mini Doily, twine & star on the letter I.

I’m really enjoying making Christmas cards this year, & I hope you do too.  Do check out the Artfull Crafts Christmas Store here for a great selection of crafty holiday goodies, & there’s a special this week too:
