White and Metallic Gold Christmas

The current 52 {Christmas} Card Challenge is 'White and Metallic Gold' and I've kept my card nice and simple by using just two dies and some gold mirri card (which has been very difficult to photograph!).  I'm also entering Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra and, as the mirri card is from my snippets drawer, I'm also popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Dies:  Memory Box 'Grand Merry Christmas', Christmas Tree (magazine freebie)
Snippets: Gold mirri card

I trimmed the card blank to a 6" x 4" size and cut Merry Christmas from the offcut.  I then die cut both the sentiment and tree from gold mirri.  I trimmed the bottom of the sentiment so there was only a narrow border and also snipped the bottom of the tree trunk so both the sentiment and tree would fit the card front.  These were then attached to the card. I then inlaid the white letters into the sentiment.

Wow Kath, what an elegant card. Love that you filled in the gaps with the white letters you cut from the card offcut - need to remember that one. And the tree die itself is stunning!

Thanks for coming to play this week!
