Happliy Ever Challenged #10: A Golden Opportunity (Christmas Card)




Here is a simple gold card for Ted's challenge at Happily Ever Crafter (don't you just LOVE that blog name?): use shiny gold on your project!
I began with a purchased gold deckle-edged card, die cut Spellbinders' stars from Spellbinders' gold craft foil and then pop dotted the center star. My sentiment and star's "glow" are both stamps from Papertrey Ink's Silent Night set and the three long rays were created simply using a ruler and a Zig Embossing pen. All embossing was done with DeNami Design's Gold Embossing Powder. A shiny gold braided cord finishes off my card -- a very simple but, I think, striking Christmas card!

Marge, I have to agree with the others. That star grabs my eyes' attention and doesn't let go. :) Love the cord as well. Thanks for playing along and for the compliment on my blog's name. :)
