Happy Wednesday!  It is the 3rd Wednesday of the month and time for my  MUSE:  Christmas Vision Card Club

I hope my card inspires you to create a Christmas creation of your own.  I can't wait to see what you create.  Make sure you link up your creations HERE!


For my card I am also playing along with this week's Retro Sketch and Just Us Girls Trend Week - to use Gold!  I started with a smooth white card base.  I topped it off with a natural card stock layer that I stamped with Verve's Deco Borders in versamark and gold embossed.   Next, I layered the circle element that I stamped with sentiment from Verve's Holiday Treats.   For the next element in the sketch, I wanted a pop of color.  I used cranberry cocktail card stock.  I stamped the sentiment on a fishtail banner using Verve's Bright Spirits stamp set in versamark and gold embossed. I sponged the panel with versamark to create more depth and richness.  I added two trees die cut with Verve's Winter Fun die set.  I die cut one with green glitter card stock and layered a gold foil tree behind it.  For some added Christmas charm, I added two tiny gold jingle bells that I tied together with thread.  I punched a hole in the cranberry cocktail card stock and pulled the thread through to the back and taped the thread down so the bells would not droop.   I finished my card with a few of Verve's Holiday Sequins Mix. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
