Gold Christmas

This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Shabby Chic' or 'Monochomatic' and we are sponsored by Elisabeth Bell who are offering two digi stamps for the winner.

I decided to choose the 'Monochromatic' option and used Kanban toppers for this quick and simple card.  I'm entering the Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use a Sentiment' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Images: Kanban 'Cosy Christmas'
Card: Gold mirri

To make this super quick card, I layered the gold candle image onto gold mirri and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed the sentiment image, layered it onto gold mirri and attached it to the centre of the card ensuring the picture matched.  Why are quick and simple cards often my favourites?
