Silver & Gold Christmas

Gosh, has it really been that long since I posted last? 😏
Well Thanksgiving time kept me pretty busy, then
I had a surprise visit from my son and his fiance, it was a 
fabulous surprise and it was so nice to see them.  
Once I got back to crafting after all that it took me a bit to get rolling again.

I was able to get this Christmas card done using Unity stamps
and "no red or green" for their current challenge on Facebook.

Every year I usually make a Christmas card without the traditional
Christmas colors, but for some reason, this one stumped me
until I ran across this beautiful papers that my son-in-law 
had given me.  He works in a print shop and everyone while in a while
he will bring me some fabulous papers.  The silver paper on this
card has a metallic pearl-like finish to it and the gold is very
sparkly.   I stamped the tree and the saying using Versamark
ink pad and then embossed with a golden champagne-like color.
Both of the stamps are from the September Kit of the Month
from Unity stamps. Now parts of the merry didn't stamp out
all the way or very clear but that is the way the stamp
was made, it kind of messes with my OCD on everything
be stamped perfectly.
I embossed the silver panel and then added a  strip in
ribbon/chain along the side of the card.

Thank you for stopping by, I am so behind on my Christmas cards
I really need to get going.
