Red and Gold – an Elegant Christmas

Happy Friday!  Another week has come and gone, and there are only 5 days until Christmas!  I just can’t believe how this year has flown by.  Before you know it it’ll be 2014!  But, after all, we haven’t made it to Christmas quite yet, so I’ve still got Christmas cards to share with you 🙂  Today’s is simple and classy, just red and gold and elegant.  Have a look:

I actually made this card based on a Mojo Monday sketch, but didn’t have it finished in time to link up.  Oh well.  I still get to share it with you all!  You’re probably not surprised by now to see more gold embossing since I’ve told you about 47 times how much I like it, and I’ll go ahead and warn you – you’ll see more!  What can I say?  It’s great stuff.  I’m also a big fan of those little gold square brads I picked up for cheap a couple months ago.  I normally stick with plain round brads, and I’m awfully glad I didn’t in this case.  The construction of this card was simple, mostly paper layering.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment, layered it onto a kraft rectangle with pretty corners, added some gold glitter glue around the edges, and popped it up on foam squares.   I used some of the same papers on the inside, and left lots of space for a nice note:

That’s all for today!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
