Red and Gold for Merry Monday

It's Merry Monday Time

Christmas is fast approaching!


It's my turn to choose the challenge
and I chose...


I love the elegance of red and gold.

It's really hard to capture that with a camera though.

The red is really Cherry Cobbler but didn't want to photograph that way.

Here's another card with red and gold.

I did this with a Stamp Stack group last month.


I can't wait to see what you can come up with.

Card 1 Recipe

I used a stylus on the backside of the die to shape the leaves and berries.  To adhere it, I rolled micro glue dots to put under the stems and berries and rolled larger glue dots to adhere the leaves.

Ink:  Encore Gold
Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White, Gold Foil, Red Glimmer (all SU)
