Gold and Black Christmas Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you had a good weekend. We spent Sunday with my father-in-law celebrating his 91st Birthday. We enjoyed a meal out and cake back at their house afterwards. His present was some whisky to put in his tea he likes that a lot. Well it is back to the working week now. Why do weekends go so fast?

I was having a play with some of my stamps while I was working on a design and incidentally this card came into being.

I was trying to design a quick and simple card for a Design Team project this one takes just a bit too long.   After cutting the mats I started on the background.  I stamped a Clarity Snowflake stamp and a Creative Expressions stars stamp with Perfect Medium and heat embossed them with a gold embossing powder.

Here is the close up detail of the stamp it is the Silhouette Manger by Little Claire Designs. It stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder. I love this stamp so much I will be using a lot this year. 

The Not Just Cards first birthday Blog Hop is still going on until the end of the month. Click on the logo above  and you will be taken to the hop there are lots of prizes to be had a long the way.  

I hope that you have a good week. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
