Inkspirational #71

At Inkspirational this week we have our colour challenge. We want to see:

Gold with any other other colour

Perfect for this time of year and I used it as a chance to continue on with my Xmas cards.


A few weeks ago I used turquoise and gold on a card and loved how it looked so had another go to make this one layer card using the 'Peace on Earth' stamp set from Uniko Studios. Perfect for mailing and I love the gold embossing-quick and easy card but I think makes for a unique take on a Christmas card.

This week our Guest Designer is Deborah. She is a very creative designer and her blog Deborah's Gems really is full of inspiring gems!

I decided to make a few more of these cards with different coloured bases for my sister and a girlfriend. I am hoping to make another one of these for my neighbours-3 guys-I thought grey with silver or navy blue with silver-watch this space!




I will enter my first card into:

House of Cards-photo challenge-see below-I went with the blue colour and the leaves (yes this card stock is blue)
Curtain Call-clearly Christmas
STAMPlorations-Dec challenge-a previous challenge-I am going for Stamps and Embossing


Our DT have made some fabulous gold cards for you, feast your eyes on them here.

Have fun!

  11. CAS perfection! It's really hard to create a simpler design, and the gold looks striking with these bold colors. It always amazes me how different the same design can look by just changing the colors!
