Green & Gold

I love green & gold for Christmas cards, so pulled out Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy & Delicata Golden Glitz to make a couple cards for the Twofer Holiday Greenery challenge.  My greenery images are from PTI Spruce & Sprigs.  Here are the 2 cards together.
My first card started by stamping the old DeNami sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne on a white card.  Then I stamped the holly & berry branch in opposite corners.
Finished with Altenew black ink spray splatters & rounded the corners.  I'm also entering Time Out.

My second card uses the same green & gold inks (even though they don't look the same) along with the same PTI stamp set.  But this card is vanilla, the sentiment is Altenew & I added a couple more of the Spruce & Sprig images to go with the holly & berry branch.
I die cut the thin SSS frame from my panel & inlaid the gold inked frame stacked 2 high.  This time I added green splatters & gold sequins.  I'm also entering CAS on Friday, Stamping Sensations & WAW.

  2. It's a lovely Holly stamp Greta and the rounded edges on one card give a lovely soft feel. Many thanks for joining in our Traditional Christmas Colours theme at Stamping Sensations challenge.

  8. I'm nuts about holly and need to get this one. I just love those leaves! They really look pretty as off-the-edge stamping on both your cards, Greta! Just rounding the corners of your first card adds a lot of interest! And I love how you cut and inlaid and framed a rectangle panel in your second card! The cream is gorgeous! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #22! Happy Thanksgiving!! Hugs, Darnell

  20. Simplicity at it's finest. Both cards are inspiring and I especially like the the gold border on the cream card. So interesting to note the different looks achieved by changing the card stock from white to cream
