I'm having a very difficult time trying to figure out how we've arrived at December already. I honestly feel like I finally got over writing 2011 on everything last week, and now we're almost to 2013! lol Goodness! Anyway, I'll get onto why you're visiting. :)
The theme this week at Papercraft Star is:
A Golden Christmas Card!
You can interpret this any way you like (i clarified with the higher ups). As long as you've got gold on it, you're good to go. Here is what I created for this weeks challenge.
Does it look familiar?? A year or two ago I created something similar to this, but they were red, and they were Christmas ornaments. I figured I'd see how my idea would turn out as a card. I have to admit, I LOVE this! I dipped the tips of my roses into gold embossing powder and heat set them. They are even more lovely in person. The layers are separated by foam adhesive for more dimension, and I love how the dry embossing goes perfectly with the shape. I know exactly who will be receiving this Christmas card.
I've included the following challenges on my card:
Dynamic Duos #31 - Light Green & Red
Corrosive Challenge #163 - Anything Goes
Hooked on Craft Challenge #27 - Christmas
Love To Create Challenge #44 - Holiday Cheer
Made Especially For You - Christmas Card With a Die Cut (my whole card was made with dies)
