Following Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge again this week meant using 'Gold' - in one form or another - and a sentiment.

My take on this was to play safe and use gold mirri card - not very adventurous of me I know 'cos I use it all the time - but just so's you don't think I'm too boring, I opted to make a zig zag card.
Makes it a little bit more interesting don't you think?

The background papers are all matted onto panels of gold mirri card, leaving a narrow border and then attached to the card blank. 
I thought the Merry Christmas section made a nice contrast to the gold leafy patterned paper.

The sentiment, from Hot Off The Press Christmas Paper Stack,  was embossed with holographic embossing powder before matting onto gold mirri card tag shapes. 
It really glistens beautifully when the light catches it.

I was itching to use my new Cuttlebug Christmas tree folder which arrived the other day, so cut a strip of gold mirri card to decorate the back panel - I just love those trees and will probably wear that folder out this year.

Not much more to say really except that's another card for the 2010 Festive Stash ...  that's got to be good hasn't it?

Love the gold Christmas Tree Cuttlebug card Max - well, loved the whole zig-zag card it looks so rich - is the C. tree folder a new one out as I haven't seen it advertised. Still have some Christmas/birthday money to spend and, like you, love the tree folder.

Have not made any cards recently. Not been too good so giving it a rest.

love and hugs
