White, Red and Gold Christmas Card

I hope you all had a fab weekend!  This is a very quick post as my Daughter and Granddaughter are due any minute and I can't wait to see them!  The monthly challenge over at IndigoBlu is 'Going for Gold'.  I decided to make a start on my Christmas cards so this is what I made.


I used the fabulous Baubles Flourish from IndigoBlu.  Its stamped in gold pigment ink and embossed with Gold detail powder.  I covered most of the stamp up with masking tape and inked it up, them removed the tape before stamping to get the single ornament.  The sentiment is a topper I have had for ages.  A bit of mat and layering, Treasured Gold gilding wax round the edges and a few stones and job done!  Thank you so much for visiting.  If you can, please pop over to IndigoBlu to see the other entries and amazing DT makes.  Bye for now and take care!  Christine xx
