Christmas with Gold


Today's post is another Christmas Card that I am entering for challenges at Flourishes, Cheery Lynn, and more.  My card began with a base of gold cardstock layered with a mat of embossed green. I stamped the image of Doves on ivory cardstock and colored with Copics and sponged with metallic gold ink while it was in the circle die. I attached this to a die cut doily of the gold with a sentiment stamped and heat embossed on a die cut leaf. I finished by adhering this to the card and added some corners of gold.

Challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Create a Christmas in July card (FTTC230), but it has to be SEMI FLAT for mailing.
Cheery Lynn Designs: #90 Silver and /or Gold.  I used gold for Doilies and have some silver in the doves.
Sweet Stampin': Christmas in July

Stamp: Flourishes Doves and Holly Set
Ink: Memento Espresso Truffle, Rich Cocoa, and Lady Bug Pads and markers, Gold Ink Pad, Versamark
