Golden Sleigh Ride with Stampin Celebration Challenge!

Hey there

I have my favourite Christmas card of the year to show today and I used my Stampin' Celebration Challenge to create it!  

Every year, my card class ladies look for me to make a WOW Christmas card, one to out-do the year before's. NO pressure!  lol  And I have it to show you today.

Have a look at our fabulous golden inspiration......


 ....a whole bunch of golden, Christmasy goodness!  I was SO excited to see the gold, the deer images, the white circle buttons and the bow!  I HAD to try to incorporate them all!

Here is my card.... 

So, were you like me and the first time you saw these edglits / stampset combo in the Holiday catalogue, you just HAD to have them?  Yep, I knew they were going to be a hit!  I LOVE layering them up and making a beautiful Christmas scene.  You can make the scenes long or short, use one, two or all three of them....endless choices. 

I wanted to create a Christmas ornament using 3 different green colours of cardstock and using the gold foil paper to hightlight the horse drawn sleigh - what I used for the deer images in the inspiration photos.  

I added a rimmed pearl to create the top of the ornament, thinking the white buttons here, and then added a cute little golden bow!

Lastly, I placed a golden moon in the background using the coordinating stampset, Jingle All the Way.  The greeting is also from that stampset, I love the way it curves.

I hope you enjoyed my card.  Be sure to join us over at Stampin' Celebration Challenge!  We just LOVE to see all that you create.

Happy stampin'
