Silver & Gold

In light of our move next week, my Christmas cards are already done and out the door. But it can't hurt to start preparing for next year, so for this weeks' combined Silver & Gold challenge with Heart2Heart and Color My Heart, I made a super simple card.

To create the ornament, I adhered strips of Gold and Silver Shimmer Trim to cardstock, taped down the ornament die cut from the (Silver and Gold Cardmaking stamp and coordinating dies), and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I then ran the two letters through using Silver Glitter Paper with new Block Alphabet die cuts.

I used gold and silver pigment ink (retired) for the string and sentiment, lining them up by using my MISTI. I started with the sentiment which comes from Gingerbread Friends. I cut my stamp apart to get just the "Wishing You" then topped it with the string and bow which are also from Silver and Gold Cardmaking.

Off to put my craft room supplies in boxes and bags so the movers can take them away. It's only for a short time, but it makes me sad. As always, I'll pack up some supplies to craft "on the road" to tide me over until the full craft room is back up and running.

Please join us at both Heart2Heart and Color My Heart this week. We love seeing your inspiring creative projects.

Until next time,


  1. Oh Becca this is absolutely beautiful! I love the simplicity and using the ornament Thin Cut with strip of Shimmer Trim is perfect! Thanks for sharing at Color My Heart!

  2. Very pretty card. Love your use of the Shimmer Trim and how you added the "wishing you" sentiment.

  3. Becca thanks for sharing your cutting technique for your ornament...great idea and very pretty card. I'm sure I will use that technique in the very near future. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Color Dare's Holiday Linky Party and hope you join us again in the Reds and Greens.

  4. Simplicity makes such a big difference sometimes. This is gorgeous :) The cutting technique is not difficult but I'm glad you showed what you did because it isn't always obvious. LOVE it, love it, love it! Even in the midst of packing, you manage to find time to create yet another masterpiece. Thanks for sharing with us (H2H as a fellow DT member) and at Color Dare.

  5. Fabulous card, Becca! I love the vertical sentiment and the striped shimmery ornament. Great CAS card! Thanks for sharing with us at Color My Heart Color Dare. Have a wonderful Christmas celebration!
