Have a Magical Holiday Season!

Yes, yes, YES--- I am starting to create with Christmas product - yay!!  I love all the glitz and glamour of Christmas card creating and today it's all about GOLD. Just yum.

The Challenge has a cute sketch this week for their Week 5 Wild Card Inspiration, so today was the day to figure it out.

I am using product from CAS-ual Fridays - these particular stamps and dies  - Snowy Sayings and Funky Flakes, were previously released as a part of Catherine Pooler's Holiday Box Set last year.  (Dear me, if you are not familiar with Catherine Pooler - you absolutely should be! - can you say StampNation??!) Maybe you were too late to purchase that Box Set, well .....I have good news and bad news HAH!

The good news - these particular stamps and dies will be released by CAS-ual Fridays YAY!
The bad news - these particular stamps and dies will be released by CAS-ual Fridays but not until our next release in July - and it will totally be worth every second of waiting!

I began by die-cutting the Funky Flakes from Mint Julep and Luxe Gold adhesive sheets and layering them to create a pretty snowflake which I popped up onto the white cardstock panel.

I gold embossed the sentiment onto a stitched flag die and popped it up onto the white panel.  I added a border of gold down each side of the patterned paper as a thin border.

After adding a few gold and clear sequins - I quit fussing - oh my goodness I really have to learn when to stop arghh!

Of course - as always - if you wish to purchase any stamps and/or dies from CAS-ual Fridays, you are welcome to use my special discount code -  there is no expiry as long as I'm a designer - and I'm still here HAH!
