Festive flurry Christmas card in coffee and cream …

Hi and welcome to my blog. Louise has set a neutral colour challenge this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown  – “coffee and cream”.  My design started with the beautiful snowflake paper in neutral colours from the Gilded Winter paper pad by Trimcraft. The paper is embossed with gold glitter – so festive and so pretty in real life …


I love shaped cards, and it’s even better if I can make my own! I used the circle framelits die set by Stampin’ Up! to create the card …


Gold sequins and adhesive pearls added texture, dimension and a little touch of luxury…


I hope you like my card for this week.  Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We do hope you’ll join us.
