Stunning Black & Gold

Hello friends! It is Shirley posting today. Our challenge this week is to make card with an Ornament and Ribbon

I suppose you know what that means - yes, I have another Christmas card made and ready to mail. Wow, Thanksgiving is upon us so we will be needing to mail these cards real soon.

For my card, I started with a white card base. I layered it with black and a gold and white stripe designer paper. I don't know about you, but I think  black and gold together really makes a stunning combination.

I used the Memory Box Grand Merry Christmas Script die with black card stock. The Grand Merry Christmas Script is actually the negative piece from the card stock. I glued it to the gold and white paper. It looks like the Christmas was cut from the white and gold, but it was not. I like the way it looks.

The next step was to use the Impression Obsession Heart Flourish die to cut the flourishes from black card stock. I snipped the flourishes from the heart to create the  embellishments for my card.

The Fancy Ornament is by Impression Obsession. I  used shiny gold card stock to cut this beautiful ornament. The bow was cut from black card stock. I placed the ornament and bow on the  striped paper along with the flourishes. I adhered them to the card with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive with the Art Institute Metal Tip. The metal tip enables you to get a precision application and fine line writing with adhesive. 

For the finishing touch, I added a gold  bead to the bow.

I hope you enjoyed the card today and I appreciate your coming by to take a look at it. The products listed above can be found at Classy Cards 'n Such online store. Use Shirley -10 for a discount!
