Noel for Christmas Craft Creations

Hello and welcome!  Today the card I'm sharing is for the reminder post for this month's Christmas Craft Creations, where the theme is metallics.

For my card, I combined some new and older products.

I started with the beautiful Leaves and Berries Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, which they released either last year or the year before.  It was gold heat embossed on a panel of C&9 Evergreen cardstock, then die cut with an Altenew Ornate Nesting rectangle die and layered on a larger white die cut panel.

Next came the sentiment and die cut foliage.  The sentiment is from the new SSS Elegantly Modern Christmas stamp, die and foiling bundle.  It was gold heat embossed then die cut with the coordinating die.  The leafy branches were die cut from SSS Matte Gold and C&9 Parsley using MFT's Fab Foliage dies, which are no longer available, but any small foliage dies would work.  The ornate panels were adhered directly to the SSS Schoolhouse Red card base, the the branches and sentiment added to the embossed panel.  To finish things off I added three red gems from my stash.

I love adding metallics to Christmas cards and if you do too, it would be marvelous to see your card in the CCC gallery!  Please us the link above to take a peek at what both the Launch and Reminder teams have created for inspiration and hopefully you'll be inspired to play along!

Take care!
