Stampin' Up's "Cup of Cheer" for the Christmas Card Challenge


Hi everyone!

The Christmas Card Challenge has a beautiful inspiration photo this week:




I love the gold...so elegant! 




I started off with some gold foil paper and shimmery white card stock. I used my Poppystamps blooming poinsettia dies and MFT's zig zag circles.

 Everything was stamped in Delicata's Golden Glitz. I LOVE that ink, such a rich, warm color. Now that I look at the ink pad, it even says,"Rich and Radiant" in 3 different languages on the front! And...it's true! LOL

 The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "Cup of Cheer," and the background poinsettias from Petaluma. It's an old wood stamp that I have had for years, and I bought it at a rummage sale, so it's probably REALLY old! I added a few pearls to finish the card off.

I'm really having lots of fun guest designing at CCC, I love making Christmas cards....makes me so happy! You can check out the rest of the DT's cards here, and join the fun!
